{Guest Post} Easter Party Ideas

The Easter bunny is hopping our way, which means it is time to plan your festivities for Easter Sunday. Regardless of whether you celebrate the sacred or secular aspects of Easter, this holiday offers a great excuse to gather your loved ones and plan a day that the whole family can enjoy.

Planning activities to keep the kids entertained is always important – because if the kids are having fun, it gives the adults the opportunity to have some fun too. Planning an elaborate Easter egg hunt can keep the kids occupied and excited. Disney’s Family Fun has some great tips for putting together a fun-filled hunt for the kiddies. We suggest that you invite the Easter bunny himself to join in the fun – the kids will be thrilled!

In addition to hosting a hunt, you can also set up a craft station, and let the children decorate their own Easter eggs. Hard-boiled eggs, paint and glitter is all you need to let the little ones channel their inner artist. Plus, they can take their beautiful creations home with them.

A little entertainment could also go along way this Easter. If you are having a large gathering with a lot of kids, you may want to hire a performer to engage the youngsters. Balloon twisters, magicians and clowns would all put on a great holiday show!

Of course, no Easter would be complete without festive Easter baskets.  Punchbowl offers a variety of basket ideas that will help you customize the perfect gift for any recipient – young or old.

To decorate for your Easter party, try to DIY and put together a festive party styling without breaking the bank. You can get a lot of inspiration from the internet – start with stopping by the craft and décor section of Martha Stewart’s website. You will find tons of adorable ideas that are perfect for Easter (like these tulip egg basket centerpieces and adorable Easter egg wreaths).

Great food and some tasty drinks will keep the adults entertained on this lovely holiday. Brunch is a popular Easter meal, as is dinner, and we found some great recipes for both! If you are serving brunch, this baked French toast casserole, looks absolutely amazing. If your celebration involves a traditional Easter dinner, this tangerine-glazed Easter ham with baby carrots will surely wow your guests. Looking to serve some scrumptious cocktails? Fresh strawberry bellinis or a champagne punch would work for either a brunch or dinner meal.

Want to keep the kids busy while everyone eats their meal? Download these adorable (and free) coloring pages from Kaboose. The kids can color their favorite pictures while you get to enjoy a delicious meal.

Good luck with your party planning. We hope you have a wonderful holiday. Happy Easter!
