Easter Inspiration!

29 Mar

With just over a week now to go until Easter we thought it would be a great time to put together some fun ideas and images to inspire your Easter festivities.

The Easter long weekend is a fabulous time for families and friends to spend some good, quality time together – without the pressure of Christmas and bonus – more chocolate!

So let’s see what we could do to celebrate this Easter…

♣♣♣♣♣

1. Feast

All the best celebrations involve a special effort with food so here’s some great ideas for your Easter get-togethers…

Carrot Patch

There CANNOT be a cuter way to serve carrots and hummus!

Savoury Bunnies

Because not all bunnies at Easter have to be sweet…

On the left is a Veggie Platter via Better Recipes and on the right are scones (guessing!)

♣♣♣♣♣

Delicious Desserts

Old Fashioned Carrot Cake via Taste of Home & Creamy Lemonade Pie via Taste of Home  (nb. this second recipe is very American – but the presentation seems perfect for Easter – you just might need to find a different recipe)

♣♣♣♣♣

Sweet Treats

Some gorgeous homemade Easter treats for kids.

Marshmallow bunnies via Better Homes & Gardens & Lollipop Cupcakes via Martha Stewart

♣♣♣♣♣

And of course with any celebratory occasion it’s fun to decorate the table…

And do the Bunny Fold…

Some holiday-appropriate napkin folding could also be fun (via Between Naps on the Front Porch)

Cutlery Carrots

And this is a cute way to package your cutlery for a picnic or lunch outside…

2. Play

Easter egg hunts, Easter crafts, games, experiments and more… Easter is a wonderful time to be a kid, be with kids or act like a kid!

Easter Party

This is an absolutely beautiful set of FREE Easter printables from Ellinee… party invitations, cupcake wrappers, stickers and more.

4. Giving

And finally, exchanging Easter eggs is of course the traditional way to celebrate Easter Sunday, and a great way to do this if you are not able to meet up with family or friends is by sending an Easter gift basket. At The Paper Package we have a range of Easter gifts we are able to safely deliver within NZ… perfect for when you want to say “Happy Easter” but can’t be there in person.
