We love any excuse to host a gathering with friends and family, and Easter is no exception. It can be hard to come up with ideas, though, so we thought it would be fun to share a few fun elements we’ve put together for an Easter dinner + Easter egg hunt extravaganza! Hopefully, our ideas will be helpful for you if you happen to be hosting a party and you’re looking for inspiration.
- Pick a theme: “Easter” is a theme in itself, but because some of us at Mamie’s happen to love pasture-raised eggs, the theme ‘Eggsellent Easter’ could be cute if you are hosting an Easter Egg hunt!
- Create a Centerpiece: To create our Easter table centerpiece, we scavenged the shelves for empty jars to make a few small bouquets that we could combine as one element. Two of the bouquets could be made using spring flowers!
You can use living flowers for all your bouquets if you’d like, but paper flowers could be fun to incorporate them into our centerpiece to change things up a bit. The benefit of using paper flowers is that you can fill your vase with pretty Easter candies for a unique touch.
- Complete your Easter Table with Coordinating Place Settings: Ours were put together using Easter-friendly plates and napkins (paper plates would work well here, too).
- Use Easter Eggs as Party Decoration: What Easter gathering is complete without Easter eggs?
- Host an Epic Easter Egg Hunt for the Kids: And speaking of Easter egg hunts, we thought it would be fun to give the participants Mamie’s Pies (even if they don’t get all the eggs they wanted) for dessert!
- Create Memorable Easter Desserts for your Guests: Finally, to thank the guests for coming to the party, serve each guest a Mamie’s McIntosh Apple, Strawberry, Wild Maine Blueberry or Cherry pocket pie.
Then, to make the favors extra special, you could leave your guests with a poem to remember the party by!
Every little bunny
Has a habit that is funny.
It doesn’t matter where he goes
He always wrinkles up his nose.
