How To Plan An Unforgettable Easter Celebration at Home
Easter is an all-time favorite occasion for Jenni and her family. Filled with friends, food, and festive activities, her annual brunch and egg hunt is an event everyone looks forward to year after year. While throwing a party for friends isn’t in the cards this year, the celebration can certainly continue on (at whatever scale feels doable) with thoughtful touches and DIY activities the whole family will enjoy. From tablescape details to easy-as-can-be crafting, these are our tried and true tips for planning an Easter party you’ll never forget. Our tip? Perfect is overrated! Go for relaxed fun instead and work with whatever you have: some of the best traditions are made from improvised moments.
Do More With Décor
Focus on a springtime aesthetic of muted pinks, pastels, and whites, playing around with soft florals for an arrangement that brings the best of the outdoors in. Take your décor beyond the table with homemade flower crowns—use floral stem wire to create a crown-shaped base, adding in greenery for a fuller base and finishing by adding your favorite flowers and securing them with more floral wire where necessary. Skipping the flowers and opting for full greenery works beautifully too if you can’t find fresh florals.

Craft Table Creations
Flower-pressing is another craft that the entire family will enjoy—and your space will certainly benefit from it, too. All you need is a heavy flat surface, some parchment paper, and a handful of flowers, and the crafting will commence seamlessly.
For a new take on egg decorating, take your pressed florals (or buy dried florals on Amazon), and pick up a couple of jars of an easy adhesive like Mod Podge and a few brushes. Even the smallest hands can easily paint the florals onto the eggs.
