Last year we had our first Easter Egg Hunt and I couldn’t wait to have one this year. But, with busy schedules and lots of other activities going on we ended up not having our big Easter egg hunt with friends. Instead I planned an Easter Brunch for our family and we had a small get together with lots of fun hanging out together.
I loved the Easter party package from Dimpleprints I used last year and decided to use it again this year and reused many of the same elements. I used the play set in my parent’s backyard as the backdrop and hung a fabric banner to add a pop of color. I added large colorful picture frames, a coffee filter wreath my grandmother made and the Easter Egg Hunt sign to act as the focal point.
The bunny cupcakes were such a huge hit last year I decided to make them again and also made pink cotton candy Bunny Push Up Pops to match.

The food was delicious and everyone pitched in and helped make something. My sister made the coconut egg nest, my dad made the ham and egg nest and I made yogurt parfaits, mini pancakes and cupcakes. We also had fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon and hard boiled eggs.
After brunch the kids went on an egg hunt and it was so fun to watch them dashing around the yard looking for the hidden treasures. After all the eggs were found they sat down to see what goodies were inside. It was so fun to watch them share with each other and make “trades” for their favorites.
One of our favorite Easter traditions is confetti eggs (also known as Cascarones Eggs. so grandma gave each of the kids a box of confetti eggs and let them go wild. This truly is one of my favorite things, the giggles that ensue are simply priceless!
My sister used the printables from the girls at Eighteen25 and made Bunny Tail party favors for all the kids to take home.
We had such a lovely morning and although we didn’t have our annual Easter Egg Hunt with friends it was a fun party and the kids had a blast.
