Easter Party Decor

When it comes to hosting parties or family events – I’m all for it! It’s funny because there are alot of things I procrastinate at, but hosting isn’t one of them. We are hosting our families Easter this year and I can’t wait to have everyone over. We are hosting 8 adults and 7 kids + 1 baby 🙂 I thought I would share some ideas on how we decorated our house, set our tables and planned activities for the kids. I am hoping the rain holds off today so we can have our big Easter hunt outside!

Easter Kitchen Towel  /PB Dinner Plates / Napkin Rings

  • Pottery Barn doesn’t sell my vintage cutlery anymore unfortunately – but here is something similar: Cutlery
  • Pottery Barn also doesn’t sell my napkins anymore, but here are some I love – a timeless white: Napkins
  • Mason Jars were just lightly painted
  • White Table cloth in from Winners
  • Got these little Easter eggs at the dollar store and wrote each persons name on them 

Cake 

Believe it or not, I got this chocolate cake from Farm Boy . I had originally planned to do cupcakes or grab some pies – but as soon as I saw this cake I thought it was perfect!

Cookies 

If you live in the Durham Region area you really need to check out Blue Bird Baked Goods I got their cookies at a recent Picks & Giggles market – and they are SO Yummy!!! When I bought them I just thought they would look so cute on the kids table, but I snuck a cookie while I was setting up… And oh my goodness they are so soft and yummy. (even when I bought them almost a week ago, I was shocked). You can also check them out and see more of their stuff here: instagram.com/bluebirdbakedgoods

Egg Decorating

This morning we did some Egg decorating – and we had a bit of a Pinterest fail. I saw these really cute shaving cream coloured Easter eggs and thought it would be great to try. However, not all of them turned out lol, sooooo…. I saved them by quickly throwing the ones that didn’t work into a cup of water and more dye. I’m not sure if they didn’t work as well because I used neon dye, or maybe I just can’t follow instructions properly. But either way, Logan had a blast doing it and well they looked cute in the end! Nothing like egg decorating at 8 in the morning 🙂

Here is the link for the instructions: coupons.com/dye-easter-eggs-with-shaving-cream/

Easter Egg Hunt 

I am putting together an Easter egg hunt for my boys and their 6 cousins. The ages range from 3 – 10 (not including baby J of course). I went and bought plastic eggs in different colours. I saw on Pinterest that when their are different age groups in order to keep it fair you should give each child a colour to look for. That way they all get the same amount of eggs and the smaller kids don’t lose out!

I went and got brown paper gift bags from the dollar store and put their name on them with a sharpie. I also put their assigned colour on the back so we can remember who is assigned what colour. Then I just decorated the bag with cute stickers from Meri Meri

My Husband is on call for work this weekend, so I had to make most of the dinner in advance just incase I am hosting this dinner solo (EEEEEEK). So Here are a few of the casseroles I made. We are pairing them with a tenderloin that will be done on the on the BBQ rotisserie (which my dad will be assisting with) along with a kale salad and Cesar salad.

 

I hope you all have an incredible Easter weekend with your family!!

Thanks for reading ❤

Katie, xo
