It’s finally Easter again! I love this time of year and how it’s become synonymous with celebrating spring and nature. When planning an Easter celebration, I can’t think of anything better than sticking with a pastel colour scheme: think pinks, blues, yellows and greens paired with beige hues. Also, you can incorporate eggs in everything, from egg shaped iced biscuits, to table centrepieces and cake décor. A creative DIY that you can make, or task children with helping on, is an egg wreath. There’s no reason why wreaths should only pop up at Christmas and as well as using eggs, add flowers, greenery and bright ribbons. It’s not just eggs that are synonymous with Easter, but so are chicks and rabbits, so do include either food or elements shaped or printed like the cute little animals.
Easter can also be a theme for all sorts of events, such as christenings, birthdays or even weddings: use calligraphed eggs as place settings and tiny labelled jars of sugar eggs as favours. Serviettes can be folded into rabbit heads and centrepieces could include gold painted eggs and bunches of gypsophila.
To entertain children at your event, create a space for them where they can hunt for eggs, decorate them, colour in Easter drawings, dress up, make flower crowns and if you really want to wow them, consider hiring an Easter bunny costumed actor.
There’s really no age to enjoy Easter and among adults, a good egg hunt can go down a treat. Make it competitive by dividing everyone into teams and adding extra challenges and complications. In order to motivate everyone, include a prize for the winners: this could be anything from an Easter themed hamper to matching ‘his and hers’ bunny printed scarves, or a voucher for a chocolate making workshop.
Easter is all about fun for everyone so relish it, feast on chocolate and welcome spring in style!
