Spring and Easter
Seven Quick Tips for Easter Entertaining
If you’re looking for some very easy ideas for dressing up your holiday table this Easter, you’ve come to the right place. Try these seven quick tips for Easter entertaining.
Egg & Bunny Centrepiece
Make a quick Easter centrepiece using a small metal tray, some Easter basket filler, treat-filled Easter eggs and a couple of Easter figurines like these bunnies. Add some contrasting florals to compliment the colour of the basket filler you’re using.
After dinner, guests can choose an egg to get a candy treat.
Similar to the first idea, you could fill a candy dish with mini eggs containing wrapped chocolate. Not only is it decorative, but guests will enjoy finding a sweet treat inside each egg. You can mix it up with a variety of different candy for added fun or keep it all the same.
Fabric Table Scatter
Try scrapbook embellishments as table confetti, instead of the usual. These fabric flowers come in a package with three different sizes and each one has a rhinestone in its centre for added sparkle in candlelight.
Easy Napkin Rings
Making themed napkin rings is so simple, fun to do and a lot cheaper than buying them. Use any pastel coloured craft ribbon, cut in lengths of about 6-inches. Wire-edged ribbon works well because it holds its shape but this thin, scalloped edged ribbon also works.
Hot glue the ribbon in a circle and then glue on a coordinating spring accent like these fabric flowers that co-ordinate with the table scatter in the previous suggestion.
You could use butterflies, ladybugs, just any spring-like accent you may already have on hand.
This metal container is embossed on both sides, making it perfect for use on your Easter table.Make an easy Easter centrepiece by filling a metal container with basket filler and topping with three candle rings. You will look like an expert flower arranger, with no effort at all!
Use three different sizes of fillable plastic Easter eggs to make a fun and easy Easter party favour inspired by nesting dolls. Hide an Easter treat in the smallest egg, put it inside the medium egg and put the medium egg inside the largest egg.
Use stickers to decorate the plain eggs, if you like. Kids love these nesting eggs!
These little guys could chase away anyone’s winter blahs. They came in a package of five. Fill these plastic eggs with foil-wrapped goodies and put one at each place setting as a take home treat. If you want, give your egg-shaped ambassadors a toothpick banner wishing your guests a Happy Easter.
If you prefer, use the banner to put the name of each guest on to use as place cards. To make the Easter banner, simply print your greeting as though you were printing address labels but print on a plain sheet of paper. Cut a notch out of the end of each banner, glue it to a toothpick and fasten it to the egg/chick. A small amount of stick-tack works well to hold the toothpick to the plastic egg or just use hot glue to hold it on.
