Easter Party Backdrop

Easter is normally a favorite holiday for kids, but why not get your closest friends together for a fun day of eating, sipping cocktails and crafting? To set up a festive backdrop, attach silver metallic fringe and colorful ribbons interchangeably with clear tape. Experiment with different colors and widths of ribbon to match your party's color scheme.

Cookie Decorating Station

Set up separate crafting stations, so guests can pick and choose which crafts they'd like to make. To set up a cookie decorating station, use a cookie cutter to cut out sugar cookie batter in bunny, carrot and egg shapes before baking in the oven. Fill squeeze bottles or pipe bags with different-colored icing and fill small bowls with sprinkles, so guests can decorate the cookies however they wish. To save time, buy pre-made sugar cookies and icing.

Add metallics to eggs with foiling paper. Before your party, hallow out a dozen eggs or hard boil them. Place them in a bowl next to foiling glue and papers and several small- and medium-sized paintbrushes. Have guests decorate the eggs in their choice of pattern. This craft is a festive, creative favor guests can enjoy even after the party. Get the full instructions>>

Basket Decorating Station

On your invitation, ask guests to bring their own Easter basket to decorate. Provide them with a variety of patterned Washi tape, colorful ribbons, glitter, glue and other craft supplies. Stick with the party theme by displaying craft supplies that match the color scheme. Guests can fill their Easter baskets with their finished sugar cookies and foiled eggs.
