Celebrate Easter this Year With a Beautiful Event

Easter is almost here! Have you decided what you are going to do to celebrate? Instead of the same old Easter morning routine, why not host an Easter event? No, no – don’t brush off the idea. With a little planning, you could be the talk of the town.

So, go ahead — get your friends and family together for some new holiday memories. Make sure you add in each of these key ingredients for an amazing Easter event!

Rent a fabric structure for an outdoor location

Spring time is a time to be outdoors. The flowers are in full bloom, the trees are coming back to life, and the sun has found its way out again. So, you will want to have your Easter event outdoors. Not so quick – Spring also brings a lot of rain and wet weather. Lucky for you, there is a solution that allows you to be outdoors and remain dry: a fabric structure.

Utilize your backyard (or any other vacant outdoor area) and erect a fabric structure that is suitable for your guests and your planned activities. Fabric structures are completely customizable, ensuring that you get what you need while your guests and event remain dry and comfortable. They come with side walls, flooring, and even climate control. There is no need to make mother nature force you indoors for another second!

You can purchase baskets or festive tins at any discount store or your local dollar store. Of course you want them to look cute, but it’s the goodies inside the basket that will leave the lasting impression.

Plan the best Easter egg hunt

What is the one thing you always do on Easter? You have an Easter egg hunt! This could potentially be the best part of your Easter event. You must decide if you are having the egg hunt just for the kids – or for the adults, too. Once you know who you are hiding eggs for, then you will be better able to determine what you are going to put in them and where you are going to hide them. For instance, if you are hiding eggs for small kids, you will want to make them a bit easier to discover. If you are hiding eggs for teenagers or even adults, you will want to let the trickery come out and hide those eggs in discreet, yet clever, places.

Still not sure what to put into the plastic eggs? Here are some helpful hints:

For kids:

  • Candy
  • Coins
  • Cool shoe laces
  • Stickers or temporary tattoos
  • Miniature cards or games
  • Crayons

For teenagers:

  • Lip gloss
  • Candy
  • Gift cards
  • Money
  • Hand sanitizer

For adults:

  • Miniature bottles of alcohol
  • Gift cards
  • Money
  • Candy
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Scratch off lottery tickets

You have many options when it comes to the Easter egg hunt. The key is to make sure you plan it out, rather than wing it. Know what you are doing in advance to make sure the hunt is executed flawlessly!

Brunch for your guests

You are going to want to feed your guests. Since most Easter events take place in the late morning, early afternoon – consider serving brunch. It is entirely up to you whether you want to make this a formal event or a come-as-you-are type of shindig. But, whatever you choose, your food choices should match.

Brunch is intended to be a light, cool meal containing a mixture of breakfast and light lunch items. You may decide to serve omelets or quiche, salads (such as potato salad, macaroni salad, etc), or French toast and fresh fruit. You can even serve all the above!

It is important to keep in mind that you will be serving the food and consuming it – outdoors. You will want to prepare something that will survive in the outdoor conditions, especially if you are going to be offering a buffet.  If something does require a continuous flow of heat or cold, make sure you plan accordingly.

A visit from the Easter bunny himself!

No Easter event is complete without a visit from the big guy – the Easter Bunny! Imagine the delight in the faces of all the kids when they see him hop right on in and pick up a plate of pancakes and sausage! Find a friend – or hire someone – who is willing to engage the kids (and even the adults) by playing goofy games, dancing around (i.e. doing the Bunny Hop), and livening up the place.

He doesn’t have to stay for the entire time, but his visit may be the highlight for the little ones. Make sure you set up a place in the fabric structure for kids to have some one on one time with the Easter bunny. In addition, the parents will have a chance to snap some photos.

Organizing and planning an Easter event doesn’t have to be overwhelming. It is a time for friends and family to get together and celebrate. Making the decision to have it outdoors in a fabric structure can bring a sense of peace, calmness, and renewal – thanks to beautiful Springtime. Throwing in some candy, games, an egg hunt, and a visit with the Easter Bunny? You will have the perfect combination for a wonderful Easter event.
