Spring is in the air! The natural beauty of spring and Easter has become the best reason to celebrate! Who says Easter egg hunts are only for kids? This year we could all use a little pick me up. Let The Party Goddess! show you how!
* Spring Place Card! Place a mini soufflé dish at each table setting. Fill the soufflé dish with wheat grass then place a dyed egg with the guest’s name written on it! This is a super cute and easy way to bring spring décor to the table.
*Peeps! Add a little twist to the traditional marshmallow Peep by dipping the bottom in hardening chocolate and add some fun sprinkles! This is sure to be a big hit with adults and kids!
* Festive Garland! Gather some pastel paint chips from a local hardware store. Cut the paint chips into egg shapes, this will give the eggs a pretty hombre look. Then string along some fabulous Easter ribbon. Super “cheep” method to great spring décor!
* On the Hunt! Fill plastic eggs (preferably sheer colored) with cotton candy for the kids! These eggs (above) from tastycloud.com are perfect for Easter egg hunts, party decorations, or Easter favors.
* Crafty Kids! Buy plain, inexpensive gift bags, paint cans, and wooden picture frames. Lay out ribbons, pom-poms, pipe cleaners, stickers and bright colorful paper and let the kids decorate their own picture frames or Easter baskets to use in the Easter egg hunt!
