All Hail the Easter Bunny!

 

All Hail the Easter Bunny!

by Amy Lignor

From Country Living to Home and Garden to your very own traditions that began when your Grandmother was just a baby, there are things you can do for Easter that your friends, family and especially the children will never forget. You can even start new traditions that your own beautiful grandchild can carry on with their own kids one day.

Let’s start with the Easter party. Perhaps you’re feeling on the ‘elegant’ side this year and want to throw a Sunday garden party or even a laid-back get-together to celebrate. If wanting to ‘go fancy’, make sure to send out that formal invitation to one and all, and include the words “Sunday dress” on the invite so that all will attend dressed in their Easter best! If looking to hold a more laid-back event, like a ‘hunt’ for the kids to enjoy, put together a special invitation that will have them all super-excited to discover those eggs and treats the Easter bunny left behind.

 

A little added touch can come from the Bunny Crown. These are for the little ones to wear as they search. You can fashion bunny ears out of flower-wrapped wire and then fasten to a faux-branch hoop. They are absolutely adorable and you can make them with any flowers you wish – from paper to real.

 

How about holding a Bike & Bonnet Hunt? If you have a lot of space, being the host of an Easter egg bike hunt is really cool. And you can provide colorful, fun bonnets so that all the families can have the perfect photo opportunity, a memento of the special day.

 

Now, we all know the Easter Basket is the mainstay of the holiday. But instead of heading to the big name box stores and sinking money into a $20.00 basket that lights up or sings, it is a far greater thing to make the baskets yourself. Kids love to make their own. It is something fun to do with your kids and the basket will mean a whole lot more. You can even think about using egg crates to decorate and make a game out of it. The first to fill every one of their egg slots wins a special prize. When it comes to Easter baskets, just search the Internet and you will discover hundreds of ideas that are literally one-of-a-kind!

 

This idea is the absolute cutest when it comes to Easter for the littlest ones. For toddlers, using Floating Eggs is super cool. Tie colorful balloons to each egg and place them all around the yard. You can even add some chocolate treats for the toddlers, or even little stuffed animals and gifts tied to the balloons. They are easy to find, of course, and they make the backyard look stunning for the Easter party.

 

Remember Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket? That was super cool. So…how about a Golden Egg? If you’re having a ‘hunt’, place one golden egg out there that holds inside it a special gift for the one who discovers it. But…make sure not to let the other kids down. Only one can receive the Golden Egg, but the rest of the kids can certainly have a ‘special’ gift all their own. Use your imagination!

 

Last, but not least, if you want something colorful that will add to the backyard or garden beauty, how about using pretty pastel plastic Easter eggs as planters? These little ‘pots’ are perfect to usher in springtime fun. All you need to get started are, plastic Easter eggs, a gold leaf marker, a hot glue gun, colorful tiles, potting soil, and your choice of succulents.

 

Simply remove the top half of a plastic Easter egg and paint the rim of the bottom half using a gold leaf marker. Using a hot gun to fill the holes on the inside of the egg bottom, glue the egg bottom to a hexagon tile, then fill with potting soil and a succulent. These really add brightness and color to both the Easter party and the back yard.

 

Make some wonderful new traditions this year and, above all, have a happy, peaceful Easter!
