Garden Party Setup

For a party venue, your backyard would be ideal, of course. But even a pocket garden or a porch with potted plants and flowers in vases would do. Thanks to creative DIY inspiration like these we found, you could transform any spot into an enchanting little hideaway for those precious Easter eggs!

Prep a wow welcome for your guests with a DIY balloon garland (2), following this tutorial from Jordan’s Easy Entertaining. We love the sweet spring touches of flowers and butterflies, don’t you?

Now, for the eggs-citing part! Here’s a triple treat of an Easter decorating idea, courtesy of Hallmark Channel. Instead of boiling and painting dozens of Easter eggs, make these 

DIY yarn decor eggs (4). For the party, they can serve as pretty table accents, as the Easter eggs tucked among the plants to be found, or even as take-home favors—since they have candy inside!

And speaking of table accents, Revel and Glitter has lovely ideas for setting up your outdoor Easter table (3). Just a few well-chosen pieces do the trick. See the fruit baskets filled with Easter goodies on each plate, the ceramic bunny, and the palmier cookies (can be store bought!) made to look like eggs peeking out of nests of grass!

Fun and Food

The Easter egg hunt is the much-awaited party activity, of course. Add to the challenge by having fun Easter egg hunt clues (5) to lead guests through the search. This free printable from Party Delights Co. UK is a great find, or you can create your own.

Finally, what to serve? This yummy Peach Bellini Party Punch mocktail (6) from Liz On Call makes an ideal Easter party drink. Serve it in tall juice glasses for the adults, and in pastel-colored paper cups for the kids!

And for a sweet and simple dessert, how about these Bunny Butt Cupcakes (7)? Check out the recipe from Delicious Table, and the super-easy bunny feet and tail and Easter egg decorations. Too cute!
