PARTY DETAILS, as told by Bird…
PARTY STYLING & PRINTABLES
This is year I decided to re-design our original Easter Bunny printable with pastel color scheme: Pastel pinks, yellow, blue and green. I also added a few more cute printables in there like the paper bows, adorable Easter Bunny Cupcake Wrappers in four colors, cute printable bag toppers, brand new invitations and over 18 pages of printables to help style a beautiful Easter Party with ease and without breaking the bank! ;)
This Easter party contains lots of handmade and crafty details like a paper version of my plush fabric flowers! I really wanted to incorporate those in the styling of the mini candy station, but had no time nor the patience to sew 4 new colored flowers, so I tried using paper instead – Guess what? it worked beautifully and took half the time!
For the styling I wanted to keep it simple but cute, so I used a lot of the Easter printables to decorate the candy station and the kid’s table. Large, pastel-colored paper lanterns hung from the tree above the table, which added color, provided shade and looked quite dramatic without too much effort! ;)
The printables had a pastel color scheme, and I used the same colors in wool to complement the tableware and add a little warmth. I also made a really simple wreath, made by wrapping the wool around a polystyrene wreath and embellishing with rolled crepe paper roses. I used napkins to make some of the other pomanders for the desserts/candy station.
KIDS TABLE SETTING
The table setting was pretty simple and disposable tableware used. Each guests a bunny place-card with their names on and a cute Easter paper basket full of treats! Each place setting was finished off with a cute bottle wrapped with our printable bottle wrappers and colored straws embellished with printable Easter Bunnies from the collection!
The centerpiece was the same Easter Egg Bouquet I showed you here. I really love how versatile this centerpiece idea is, especially for a kid’ table – This bouquet doesn’t need watering, it’s child-friendly and edible! can’t ask for better than that!
The candy buffet was styled atop a white, distressed dresser (from my daughter’s bedroom). It added height and allowed me to make the best of a small space. The sweet treats on offer are of course chocolate Easter eggs, but also marshmallows matching the party color scheme, chocolate candy bars, jelly gum eggs inside egg cartons, cream cheese Easter Bunny cupcakes and strawberry meringues.
PARTY FUN & ACTIVITIES
I guess with any Easter Party you gotta have an Egg Hunt, right? Our printable Egg Hunt signage and cute printable Easter Egg baskets doubled as favor baskets too, and were used by the kids to hunt for chocolate eggs around the garden!
Our printable bunny ears, also make for a really fun activity, where guests can decorate their own head-bands and make for fun photo props too! My daughter insisted on having her ears pinned to the flower headband she was wearing! Girls will be girls! ;)
PARTY FAVOR IDEAS
For the favor and gifts, I thought it would be really fun to display them onto a mini wooden wheel barrel I have – But you could re-purpose a vegetable box or crate painted white for the safe “garden” effect.
Favors included speckled chocolate eggs bags topped with Easter Bunny printable bag toppers, chocolate candy bars wrapped in matching wrappers, and Easter Eggs displayed inside egg cartons. I decorated each carton with scrap-booking papers from the kit, yarn, a printable Easter favor tag and some of those super cute, printable paper bow!
