Turn tea into a banquet
The buffet table should be a main attraction for the party. Begin with a centrepiece such as a stunning flower display, and complete the table with napkin bunnies and carrot cutlery sets. Arrange your colourful egg-shaped finger foods on vintage-style serveware and multi-coloured cake stands. Some of our favourite recipe ideas include cream cheese coconut bunny tails from the blogger of Pizzazzerie and colourful Easter cake balls by Skinny Taste.
The proof of the party is in the eating
No party is complete without a fabulous cake. Blow your guests away with an egg-travaganza of a display such as this blue beauty from The Cake Blog or Martha Stewart’s Mini Egg-overload cake.
A tree is not just for Christmas
Why should Christmas have all the fun? Decorating an Easter tree is a great seasonal activity and an attractive decoration for indoors or out. Make it colourful and beautiful, whether adorned with decorations homemade by the children of the family or with delicate little colourful eggs and chicks.
Go mad for flowers
Daffodils herald the beginning of spring, and the colourful appearance of flowers springing from their bulbs is a fantastic welcome of the warmer months. Celebrate the spring colours by bringing flowers to your displays, in decorations, in vases and even the food.
The egg hunt
Planning an egg hunt can be as much fun for the planner as the hunters. If you’re feeling adventurous, hide clues to lead your all-age party around the garden and the house to reach the chocolate prize. Or for very little ones, tie balloons to the eggs and watch their excitement at collecting the bright coloured treats.
