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…
All the best celebrations involve a special effort with food so here’s some great ideas for your Easter get-togethers…
There CANNOT be a cuter way to serve carrots and hummus!

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!)
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)
Some gorgeous homemade Easter treats for kids.
And of course with any celebratory occasion it’s fun to decorate the table…
This lovely, nostalgic Easter table is featured in the latest edition of the fabulous Sweet Paul magazine
And do the Bunny Fold…
Some holiday-appropriate napkin folding could also be fun (via Between Naps on the Front Porch)
And this is a cute way to package your cutlery for a picnic or lunch outside…

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.
