Hop into spring with this handy guide to planning the ultimate Easter event! From egg hunts to picnics, there’s a lot to consider when making your pre-party checklist. These easy tips will help take the stress out of planning your spring fling.
Tip 1: Stick to the Staples
It’s best to start with large-scale planning and working your way down to aesthetics and entertainment. Begin by getting a headcount of how many guests you’re expecting, then secure your table and chair rentals. If your event is outdoors, you will likely need to consider shade structures such as tents or canopies. Next, reserve steam tables, food warmers, and any beverage dispensers you anticipate needing. Those are the “staples” and once that’s out of the way, the fun begins!
Tip 2: Think Outside the Basket
Once you’ve secured the big-picture ideas for your Easter event, you can start planning the exciting details from the menu to festive decor and more. Just remember, Easter isn’t all about chocolate! Think outside the basket with healthy party snacks and entrees. Fresh, seasonal fruit makes an easy, colorful spread, while veggie kabobs are a great addition to any barbecue. Keep the cleanup simple with disposable plates, glassware, cutlery, but don’t skimp on the linens. Cloth linens are easily rented and much classier than plastic tablecloths. Plus, they are available in a wide array of festive colors that will keep your event looking polished and cohesive.
Tip 3: Pick a Theme
Finally, we also recommend narrowing the focus by picking a more specific theme than just “Easter.” This will help to anchor your ideas and keep your event cohesive. For example, you could host an Easter paint-party with a pastel color scheme. Activities might include a temporary hair coloring station with pastel chalk, egg dying, easter nail art and a build-your-own smoothie station! A “floral” or “baby animal” theme are some other great ideas for the season.
