Every year we decorate Easter eggs with out good friends, The Wilson’s. Both of our oldest children are 5 years old so we have been doing this for the last 5 years. It’s a tradition I hope to continue until our kids don’t think egg dying is cool anymore. Even then, I will probably still make them do this…any reason to have people over, right?
I didn’t spend any money on decor for the party. Everything was items I found around the house. I used 3 green placemats and laid those across the table. I was hoping to go for the look of grass. I got the reusable chalkboard labels from an Etsy shop and can be purchased HERE. I use these for almost every party I host and they come in a set of 8. Then I put some twine through the holes to add an extra decorative touch, but you could use ribbon as well.
In an old Easter basket I rolled up the matching green napkins and used daisy napkin ring holders I got at Crate & Barrel eons ago. The white appetizer plates are also from Crate & Barrel.
I then reused a black frame and put in a nice Easter printable. You can print the Easter printable HERE. Next, I used a clear vase and added some artificial flowers.
For drinks, I made some lemonade and put it in nice pitcher. The drink pitcher is from Williams-Sonoma.
We had three different kids of Easter snacks. We had cheddar bunnies, bunny tails and carrot cake bites. The cheddar bunnies are made by Annie’s and I know they can be found at Publix and Target.
The carrot cake bites were actually pre-packaged and made by Weight Watchers.
The bunny tails I made from a recipe off another blog and can be found HERE. This recipe said 4-5 cups of powdered sugar but I ended up needing 7 cups.
After snacks we took the party outside and did some egg decorating. This way the older kids could do the eggs and the smaller kids could play. This year we decided on doing a marble technique on the eggs. This required using vegetable oil which got all over the place, but the eggs did come out super cute.
I know I had a blast and I am sure our guests did too. It is always great celebrating with friends.
Happy Easter Everyone!
