Afternoon Easter Party Ideas

Easter is a great time to bring family and friends together especially with a brunch or afternoon party. If you are thinking of putting together an Easter party this year, here is some inspiration! Planning an Easter party is easier when you understand your guests and audience. Accordingly, you can decorate your backyard to fit into the theme.


If you have a large immediate family, a brunch or lunch party setting would be ideal for a post-church celebration. However, if you would prefer to let everyone to their own thing, then an afternoon Easter party with an egg hunt is a great way to celebrate this day with your family and friends! This way all the family rituals are intact and you can also put together an affordable afternoon Easter party!


Set up Kid Friendly Stations

If your family and friends have kids, then it is always wise to setup kid friendly activities, such as a colouring station or even cupcake and sugar cookie-decorating table. You can also put together an egg decorating station so the kids can go home with their own Easter egg tree! We have found out that petting zoos are fun for everyone so why not add a few bunnies and chicks to the mix!


Have a Book Reading

Add a tradition (especially if you are thinking of doing this annually), by having a family member or friend read out an Easter story from an illustrated book for the children to enjoy before the games begin! You can have this dated and signed as a great keepsake!


Think About the Menu


Afternoon Easter Party Food


Since it is an afternoon party, you can easily get away with a tea party setting with sandwiches, salads, sliders, little nibbles and add lemonade or a drink station to make sure everyone stays hydrated. You can customise them to be Easter party themed by styling them differently with eggs, ingredients such as carrots and more. The same goes for the desserts; it is easy to put together bird’s nests as cupcake toppers to tie it into the egg theme!


Set up an Egg Hunt

No Easter party is complete without an Easter egg hunt! You can make it fun for everyone by hiding various types of eggs that are colour coded by age group. For instance, pink eggs for ages three and under, and even have separates for the adults so everyone can join in! Make the baskets big enough so that they can also take home with them their Easter party bombonieres.
