Ideas for an Easter dinner + egg hunt.
We love any excuse to host a gathering with friends and family, and Easter is no exception. It can be hard to come up with ideas, though, so we thought it would be fun to share a few fun elements we’ve put together at Evermine for an Easter dinner + Easter egg hunt extravaganza! Hopefully our ideas will be helpful for you if you happen to be hosting a party and you’re looking for inspiration.
1. Pick a theme: “Easter” is a theme in itself, but because some of us at Evermine happen to own backyard chickens, we know how hard those hens work to produce their eggs, so we wanted to incorporate them into the theme of our party somehow. Thus, we chose the theme Chicken and Egg.
2. Create a Centerpiece: To create our Easter table centerpiece, we scavenged the shelves for empty jars to make a few small bouquets that we could combine as one element. Two of the bouquets were made using spring flowers picked fresh from Evermine’s outdoor flower garden – we were so excited to see them growing from the ground after such a long winter that we couldn’t help but use them!
You can use living flowers for all your bouquets if you’d like, but we had some paper flowers lying around (tutorial here), and we thought it would be fun to incorporate them into our centerpiece to change things up a bit. The benefit of using paper flowers is that you can fill your vase with pretty Easter candies for a unique touch.
3. Complete your Easter Table with Coordinating Place Settings: Ours were put together using Easter-friendly plates and napkins (paper plates would work well here, too). Then, to integrate the place settings with our Chicken and Egg theme, we added custom place cards in the same style, Miran Silk, for each guest.
To top off the place settings, we chose these adorable custom coasters. These are by far my favorite component of the gathering, and were the inspiration for creating the whole theme.
4. Use Easter Eggs as Party Decoration: What Easter gathering is complete without Easter eggs? These Easter eggs were naturally dyed (tutorial here), and can be placed in decorative Easter baskets until the meal is over, when it’s finally time for the
adults Easter Bunny to sneak them into their hiding spots for the Easter Egg Hunt!
5. Host an Epic Easter Egg Hunt for the Kids: And speaking of Easter egg hunts, we thought it would be fun to give the participants these super cute “Champion Egg Hunter” pinback buttons to make the event even more fun and memorable.
6. Create Memorable Easter Favors for your Guests: Finally, to thank the guests for coming to the party, we put together these super simple Easter favor bags filled with jellybeans. These favors are packaged in our small Kraft colored favor bags, and are sealed with Miran Silk Chicken and Egg labels.

Has a habit that is funny.
It doesn’t matter where he goes
He always wrinkles up his nose.
