Gearing up for a great Easter party
If you are hosting an Easter party, either for children or adults, you’re going to need lots of Easter party supplies. I like to keep to a spring theme featuring all the usual Easter characters: the Easter Bunny, eggs and so on. Apart from the obvious religious connotations, Easter represents the end of winter for me so I keep my party ideas towards celebrating the season of renewal and rebirth.
For kids I like to arrange an Easter Egg Hunt that are really fun though I sometime mix it up a bit if it looks as if the weather is going to be bad. On here I’ve including the main items you will need to get organized for a great party.

Easter Elegance Table Cover Party Accessory
I like to make life simple and use paper of plastic tablecloths for parties – if they get soiled it doesn’t matter and it saves my good linen table covers.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want it to look great though and you can pick up some really pretty ones these days.
This paper cover measures a generous 54 inches by 108 inches so will cover a good-sized table.
easy clean – just wipe with a wet cloth

What do you need for a great Easter party
For any party it helps take the stress out of things if you know exactly what you are doing – I always have a checklist then I don’t forget anything – this is one I have drawn up for a Spring party
- Invitations – I often make my own, it is really easy to do since most of us have access to a computer and printer and I can customize them exactly how I want them. When I don’t have time though – there are plenty to buy at reasonable prices.
- Decorations – I decide early on if I am going to use a theme or just have general Easter and spring themed decorations. I’ve written about these elsewhere so I won’t repeat myself here – you can read these by clicking the links.
- Tableware – table covers, napkins, plates and so on
- Party Favors – if you are holding a party for children, these are essential. Try to pick out things that will keep them occupied throughout the party like activity books, crayons, finger puppets, bubbles and so on.
- Food and drink – decide in advance if you are going to serve dips and finger food or a full meal and try to pick things you can prepare in advance to make it as easy as possible on the day.
