Easter Egg Hunt Party

I’ve been busy planning our 2nd annual Easter Egg Hunt Party and I thought I would share pictures from our party last year.  This was such a fun party to plan and the kids had lots of fun, I can’t wait for this years party!  Do you have plans for an Easter party this year?

The party was outside at a fabulous local park and the perfect setting for our fun filled afternoon.  I used the Easter party package from Dimpleprints to create this bright and fun party.  I had a short turn around time and put the party together in 2 weeks, but I love how it turned out and the kids had lots of fun!  Here are some of the pictures from the party.

I kept the food simple since we were outside.  We had sandwiches, rabbit food (carrots & celery), chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, Oreo cake balls and the cutest bunny cupcakes.  

To keep the kids entertained (and out of the eggs before we started the egg hunt) we played a few games.  Sack races are a nostalgic and fun game, perfect for an Easter party.  I made burlap sacks and attached fluffy yarn tails for “bunny hop” races.  The kids put on bunny ears and hippity hopped to the finish line.

I’m also sharing this party here.

  1. adorable!

  2. So awesome Mariah!! I love the Easter bunny sack races – we might have to do that with the kiddos this Easter.

  3. Mariah, I love all of your decor. I was on the Dimpleprints site and am trying to make the Lollipop covers from the tutorial. The measurements seem off. I tried to score them at the measurements on the tutorial and it doesn't look right. Please help.

  4. Chino Hills South Moms club – I just looked at the guest post on Dimpleprints site and it looks like one of the numbers is off. The measurements to score at should be 7/8, 1 1/4, 3 1/2, 3 7/8. I've also made other variations and scored at 1/2, 3, 5 1/2 (this version just doesn't have a flat top, more of a triangle)

Easter Egg Hunt Party

Pin It

Spring is in full swing here and that means Easter is just around the corner.  I wanted to create a fun family event that will be a tradition for years to come, and of course that means having an Easter egg hunt!  This past weekend we invited our friends to bring their baskets and come have some fun!

 
The party was outside at a fabulous local park and the perfect setting for our fun filled afternoon.  I used the Easter party package from Dimpleprints to create this bright and fun party.  I had a short turn around time and put the party together in 2 weeks, but I love how it turned out and it just might be one of my favorite parties so far!  Here are some of the pictures from the party.

I kept the food simple since we were outside.  We had sandwiches, rabbit food (carrots & celery), chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, Oreo cake balls and the cutest bunny cupcakes.  
I originally saw the idea for the bunny cupcakes here, but didn’t have time to make the cookie version so I took the easy route and cut out bunny ears in white card stock on my Cricut and the inner piece from the patterned paper.  I wrapped the cupcakes with coordinating cupcake wrappers and added the ears and face. Aren’t they cute?
 I love Oreo cake balls, they’ve become one of my favorite party foods!  They looked super yummy in this basket of grass.
 The kids tables were set with whirly twirly centerpieces and cute party hats.

Other party decorations I made included this cute Hippity Hoppity Happy Easter sign, wooden Easter eggs and the cutest little chick.

 

Since the kids were going to be getting lots of loot from the egg hunt I kept the party favors simple.  I made custom lollipop covers (tutorial coming soon) and put them on a table with subway art from Lolly Jane and a jelly bean and peep flower arrangement.

To keep the kids entertained (and out of the eggs before we started the egg hunt) we played a few games.  Sack races are a nostalgic and fun game, perfect for an Easter party.  I made burlap sacks and attached fluffy yarn tails for “bunny hop” races.  The kids put on bunny ears and hippity hopped to the finish line.

Finally, what they had all been waiting patiently for…Easter Egg Hunt time!  With Easter baskets in hand the kids raced off to find their treasures.

We had so much fun and enjoyed the afternoon with our friends!  I look forward to making this a tradition we enjoy year after year!

Stay tuned I have lots more details and how-to’s to share.
