Its that special time of year when the house is filled with chocolate eggs, the evenings become lighter, daffodils are popping up and Easter is approaching. We’ve got some advice from party experts Wish Upon a Party on making sure your Easter event is practically perfect in every way….

Planning an Easter event for friends or a local event? We have some professional tips and advice to help your event run as smoothly as milk chocolate!

Easter egg hunts are the perfect way to enjoy the Easter weekend with friends and family. An Easter egg hunt can be a really lovely way to excite little guest without spending a fortune. You can pick up mini chocolate eggs, baskets, buckets and bunny ears really cheaply at supermarkets and in high street shops.

Pick a venue

Weather depending, Easter egg hunts are perfectly hosted in a garden or local park. Make sure your hunt is contained to a manageable area, as little ones will run around searching for eggs! Mums and Dads can join in the hunt, by writing little clues for them to read to younger ones. Make sure your hunt is not too cryptic!

Enrol some bunny helpers!

To create a stress free and amazing party, your children guests need grown up supervision for safety reasons and to make sure everyone gets a chocolate treat! Adults can help with the party games and party rules, making sure every guest has fun! If you want to give your friends (and yourself!) a relaxing day though, you may want to think about an entertainer.  Wish Upon a Party supply a professional entertainers to lead games and make sure that your party runs as smoothly as possible – from Easter princesses and fairies, to Easter bunnies and other themed characters.

Need a theme?

To theme your Easter party is a lovely way to make the event a little more special! 2015 is the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, which would be a fantastic theme for a Easter weekend party!  We also recommend a ‘Nursery Rhyme theme’ or ‘Fairy-tale character theme’ (come as your favourite nursery rhyme character)  – continue this throughout your whole event – decorations, clues for the hunt, fancy dress, balloons and table wear etc.

Decorating your home or venue

Decorating is such fun, and Easter is perfect for pastel colours, bunting, little chicks, pretty bunches of daffodils and DIY decorating eggs! Ask your own little ones to design several Easter eggs on paper, string them together and make gorgeous home-made bunting to hang over your party food table!

Easter Eggs

Food and Treats

Easter is a great time to make gorgeous cupcakes, cornflake cakes decorated with Mini Eggs, sandwiches cut in to the shapes of bunnies and chicks! Get your own little ones involved in the food prep, they will love helping you organise an Easter Feast  – remember the hot cross buns and to dye your own eggs!  We’ve got some fab Easter recipes here.

Going home goodies

Don’t let your guests leave without a bag of Mini Eggs, mini chicks and other gorgeous little treats! A little bunch of daffodils are a lovely going home present for ‘Mummy and Daddy’ guests!
