I’ve never celebrated Easter so enthusiastically until becoming a mother. There is something that is just so sweet and special about seeing your child get dolled up, hunt for eggs and interact with the Easter bunny. This year, we were so excited, we celebrated all week with special activities, crafting, bunny desserts and a series of what I call posh play dates – highly stylized play dates with a dress-up theme and sponsors involved. Read on for ideas and inspiration on how to host your own Easter themed play date or party this year!
Using items we already had from her bunny-themed HOP-py 3rd birthday party, we decorated our house in fun pops of colors and created an enticing dessert station.
It consisted of straw-bunny smoothies, a jelly bean tasting, cookies, cotton tails (cotton candy on sticks), bunny trail mix, rock candy, chocolates, Peeps, and fruit to nibble on. My daughter said after tasting the black jellybeans that they were “rotten…something bad happened to these.” hahah I’m not a fan of licorice flavor either!
For entertainment, the kids had a bunny hop, Easter egg hunt around the living room, and coloring pages that Miffy sent us. The beloved bunny, Miffy, also sent us tees for all the girls to style, the cutest coloring book, and ears to wear at the party! Plus we received Miffy PJs for Juliet to sleep in. Look at the girls doing the bunny hop on my couch! I’d be hopping too if I received this awesome basket of surprises!
The Easter basket also included the most amazing, supersized Easter eggs by Zuru. They’re called 5 surprises and they are so much fun for the kiddos to open up! Does anyone else out there have kids who are obsessed with opening up tiny packages with these little presents? The girls kept squealing for joy! The surprises skept coming and included fun girly items such as, mermaids, princesses, hair accessories, bracelets, hair ties and glitter glue! I highly recommend them for your girl’s Easter baskets! Last year, we got J a real-life Easter bunny. So of course, we had to bring her out for the kids to play with and take pictures with! The bunny hung out at our decorated kids’ cafe before hopping off to play some hide and seek with them.
Oh what FUN we had! Read on here, to see what else all the Fab Kids are hunting for (in terms of fashion). There is still a week before the big holiday! Let me know in the comments how you and your family are celebrating!
