Hop to It! Easter is only two weeks away! I have some super easy & fun ideas for you to host the perfect Easter dinner for your loved ones. This is the first of several posts I will be doing this week to get you ready just in time for Easter! This year we decided to host an early Easter dinner. While I love the idea of brunch (not to mention every brunch food out there!), I don’t know about you, but I have found it difficult to just enjoy Easter morning with the discovery of what the Easter bunny has left, going to our Easter church service and then to rush home to be ready to host brunch. So I have simplified things this time and moved our celebration to dinner and an egg hunt of course!
So here is the table I have created for our Easter celebration! I hope you can find some inspiration to create a special memory for your friends and family too!
I found these super cute invites on Shutterfly! They were running a promotion and I got 10 invites for FREE. All I had to do was pay for shipping. I loved this design as it fit perfectly with my theme and I also loved the chance to add a personal touch on the back with pics of my son!
For our table, I started with a burlap tablecloth and then added white-washed wood chargers. I layered blue striped paper plates and added cloth napkins with burlap bunny ears napkin rings. How cute are they? For my centerpiece, I took small galvanized buckets with green gingham ribbon handles & added fresh grass to each bucket. I then placed one letter lollipop in each bucket to spell ‘HOP’. Love those lollipops! Then for each of the kids, I added small party favors using these felt bunny baskets and orange chevron stripe paper bags. Each guest can fill up their bags from the candy bar (stay tuned…a post is coming next for that!). I put one sugar egg with a small Easter animal inside of it and a package of Bunny Tails to start.
I then wrapped each chair with orange burlap ribbon and added a bunch of carrots to the center. I think they turned out really cute! A couple of vintage details from my own collection and a bucket of jellybeans finish off the table. Easy, quick ways to get your table ready for Easter. Later this week, I will be sharing our menu, our dessert table & fun Easter Egg Hunt ideas to complete your celebration.
