How to host an eggcellent Easter for everyone
Easter gatherings are traditionally for the kids but leave little to the imagination for adults or teens, so how about mixing things up this year with some EGGcellent ideas that will appeal to everyone, from food and decor to activities that will keep them occupied plus of course, the obligatory Easter egg hunt…
1. A Beautiful Breakfast
Start your day with a beautiful breakfast to get the energy up and the excitement going! It sets the tone for the day and really gives a special family event feel. There are so many fun ways to incorporate Easter without spending a fortune, like using a cookie cutter to create ‘bunny toast’, making ‘croissant carrots’ by adding sprigs of rosemary to the tops or using edible paint on boiled eggs for that extra special Midas touch.
2. Easy Easter Decor – DIY style
If you want to decorate your home for Easter without breaking the bank on ‘themed’ items there are so many possibilities, such as creating an Easter eggs vase that you can still fill with water, making a glass cloche from a wine goblet, or making floral hoops from spray painted hula hoops that can be switched up all year round.
3. Easter egg Hunt – for everyone
Easter doesn’t have to be all about chocolate. When organising an Easter hunt consider making it fun for everyone by hiding creative things inside hollow plastic eggs.
Plant a Willy Wonka style golden ticket that can be traded in for a special prize, fun printables with dares or IOU treats like massages and lie ins, or fill cute DIY bunny paper bags with bath bombs and miniature gin bottles for the adults to enjoy at the end! You could even create QR Code eggs for the teens and techies among you.
Everyone could have a different coloured egg or bag to look for so you can be personal about what goes inside them – and save squabbles!
4. Fun activities
If you want to keep everyone entertained for double the time, think about making your hunt part of an activity that leads to another one. Hide puzzle pieces for everyone to make at the end, craft bits for everyone to decorate an Easter hat or ingredients (safely wrapped!) for everyone to make chocolate nests together. You could even do a night-time hunt by using glow in the dark eggs or glow sticks to guide everyone around the garden!
If your family thrives on competition (cue the hot cross bun fights!) you could make a trophy for the person who found the most goodies and create a score board to record the winners year on year!
