Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday, Easter is a great time to get friends and family together. Easter also marks the beginning of Spring and what better reason is there to throw an outdoor Easter party! Keep these 5 tips in mind when planning your Easter party.
Keep the vibe casual. Unlike a spring garden party you can skip the invitations and elaborate decorations for your Easter party. Easter is about family, so your party should be more of a laid-back gathering rather than a formal soiree. Have your party outside and embrace the natural decor. Besides the backdrop of a garden or yard can be really great for family photos.
If you want to send out invitations. Try something casual like email invitations or an online RSVP system of some sort. Or have your children make the invitations as a pre-party craft.
Plan activities (for kids and adults). Of course the one that comes to mind is an Easter egg hunt, which can be fun no matter what age you are. To vamp up your hunt, and to make it more dynamic for adults, divide your group into teams and prepare clues beforehand.
Make it potluck-style. Instead of trying to prepare the entire meal, recruit the family to bring dishes, snacks and drinks. Focus should be less on preparation for your Easter party, and more on relaxing with your family and friends.
Create new traditions. See what works this year for your Easter party, and what friends and family enjoyed the most, and make these activities traditions for years to come.
