Easter is one of the most darling holidays, isn’t it? And we love to celebrate it BIG-I’m talking non-stop for weeks! (if you follow our IG stories, you saw it ALL!) And if you know us, you know that’s expected. ‘Cuz we LOVE a good party and any excuse to celebrate!! But in New York City, attending an Easter egg hunt oftentimes means fighting the crowds, getting trampled on and kids crying because they haven’t found enough eggs. So this year, we wanted to host an EGG-clusive egg hunt for our followers while partnering up with some of our favorite Manhattan mom-owned companies! Thanks to The Craft Studio for being our fabulous hosting venue and providing all the crafts and super-fun staff! Thanks to Katie from Manhattan Dance Lab with whom this party planning all started! She is my daughter’s semi-private dance teacher and I knew I’d want to promote her services and party offerings in this fun, and memorable setting! B Lee Events (Brandy and Lisa) really came through for us as our event production partner and dessert bar sponsor. We couldn’t have done it without any of these fabulous mom-owned brands. And we’re so egg-cited to share the fun details!
Our followers from Fab Kids, this blog and the community partied with one another and the Easter bunny who was available for photos and dancing! There were so many adorable kiddos…so many that we sold out the place and even had a waitlist. (So sorry for those that tried getting tickets the day of… next time please purchase early so you can make sure to reserve your coveted spot as sometimes our events DO sell out!!)
All kids were greeted and welcomed by the Easter bunny and given a spring-y glitter tattoo of their choice. While waiting for all the guests to arrive, early arrivals got to craft a tissue paper corsage and enjoy some treats and snacks provided by B Lee Events.
Who could resist these pretty treats brought in by B. Lee Events??
And this picture-perfect dessert table designed by B. Lee events?? I mean c’mon! Cuteness overload, right??
I’m so thankful that they perfectly matched the color scheme I planned out (knowing I’d be using my pink blue and yellow party decor leftover from Juliet’s HOP-py 3rd (bunny-themed) birthday party. But this is what you can expect when working with professional planners. They get ALL the details exactly right! Here I am setting up before guests arrived. pro-tip. Use a rolling suitcase to transport all your party items!
Note if you don’t already have Easter or bunny decor, but have leftover balloons use those! I blew some up using only a tiny bit of air to replicate eggs in each of the picket fence centerpieces (which held florals and sponge brushes). And additionals were washi-taped with different patterns to create oversized Easter eggs at our step and repeat.
The kids enjoyed crafting their trays with modge podge and tissue paper – something easy to do for all little hands!
Katie from Manhattan Dance Lab led a bunny hop, movement and dance segment which was SO fun for all ages.
And afterwards, everyone hunted for eggs. There were SOO many good hiding spots at the Craft Studio! pro tip – always keep a bunch to the side to later (sneakily) hide by the kids who didn’t find enough eggs.
