Kristin Hendrix, our National Sales Manager and Party Planner Extraordinaire, hosts an elaborate Bunny Brunch for her daughters every year after church on Easter Sunday. I have always thought it was such a cute idea so I wanted to share it here with you! Kristin gets the excitement going early with creative invitations…
I like these from Parents.com. They even have a template you can use to make them yourself. Incorporate colorful scrapbook paper and embellishments to make them over the top cute! Mail them in pretty pastel envelopes and your guests will be counting down the days until the event! I love DIY, don’t you?
Next, you’ll need to decorate in a manner fitting for the Easter Bunny, and that means EGGS! Try hanging Easter Egg Garland on your mantle, it is easy to make and looks super festive.
You know I love anything personalized, and these egg place cards are no exception. Follow these simple instructions to make each guest feel special with their own seat at the table.
Celebrating outside? If you live in the South, it may be warm enough for an outdoor brunch and egg hunt ~ so much fun!! Be sure to put the table on a porch or in the yard near the Egg Hunting Grounds. It will build anticipation as your guests eat their goodies and spy for eggs at the same time! A home-made sign points the way to the festivities…
What’s on the menu?? Kristin is a fabulous cook and you never know what she might whip up for the brunch. Hostess with the Mostess has put together a collection of mouth-watering recipes just for Easter. Mmmm…
Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles with Praline Peaches, Eggs Benedict, Mini Blueberry Turnovers, and Easter Egg Nests for dessert. Speaking of dessert, Bakerella has the most amazing ideas for Easter sweets. You will WOW party goers with Easter Basket Cupcakes or Chick Cake Pops…over-achievers feel free to make both!
Serve your sweets on our green lattice plates and our bunny oval platter. You may also like our chick rectangle platter, dot spreaders and triangle dot plates. It is no surprise that Kristin’s cabinets are full of green lattice, dot plates and Easter platters. Every year her guests comment on how precious her table setting are. Nothing says Easter party like Coton Colors pottery!
Time to get your egg hunters in the mood with cute Easter crafts. Kristin sets up craft stations for little ones to make something special. Bunny Treat Envelopes, Bunny and Carrot Easter eggs, and Bunny Ear headbands will keep them busy after their snack.
Before everyone hops home, you’ll want to give them a party favor to commemorate the celebration. Our pink and blue striped eggs come gift boxed like the carrot ones below, and all can be personalized with a child’s name. The Happy Easter covered box is PERFECT for bringing home treasures found on the egg hunt!
We would love to hear about YOUR Easter parties. Please leave a comment with additional ideas and inspirations you have for creating an Egg-stra Special Easter Celebration!
