  • Display Easter party decorations like pastel-colored streamers, balloons, floral arrangements, and decorative centerpieces.
  • Serve Easter party food like honey-baked ham, scalloped potatoes, carrots, fresh breads, and an assortment of delicious desserts.
  • Add a few yummy Easter appetizers to the party menu as well. Include deviled eggs, an array of dips, a gourmet cheese tray with savory crackers, and fresh vegetables.
  • Hand out Easter party favors like handmade soaps tied with twine, chocolate bunnies, bags of jelly beans, or bunches of fresh-picked flowers wrapped with decorative ribbon.

Easter Party Themes & Ideas

Here are a bunch of Easter party ideas to get you started with your Easter party planning!

Easter Egg Decorating Party
This is a great Easter party idea for the kids. Before your Easter party, hard boil several white eggs and let them cool. When the kids arrive, put out several decorating materials like paint, markers, stickers, and whatever other materials you can think of to decorate your eggs! If you plan to dye the eggs, leave the eggs in the dye for at least 3 minutes so that they keep the color. In addition to creating pretty designs on the Easter eggs, you can also make egg people. Have each kid draw a face onto the shell, then use materials like felt, ribbon, and lace to make an outfit for the egg to wear. Encourage the kids to use their imaginations!

Easter Brunch Buffet
An Easter brunch with friends and family is a great idea for a low-key Easter party. Set up a long table that will fit all of the items on your menu. Place a festive tablecloth on the table. Cook up a variety of breakfast foods like eggs, bacon, sausage, muffins, and French toast to serve. Also include lunch items such as deli sandwiches, salads, and pasta. Label each item on your buffet table so guests know what they're trying, then enjoy catching up with guests over brunch!

Easter Cookie Swap
The winter holiday season is usually filled with cookie swaps between friends and family members. But why not have a cookie swap around the Easter season too?
