Bonnet Cake & Gelatin Easter Baskets
Remember the tops of your tables provide you with a very
large surface area and covering them with a themed
tablecover or a beautiful linen tablecover is the
easiest way to change the look & feel of a room. You can use
several solid colored tablecovers if desired, but we suggest no
more than three colors.
To create a designer tabletop, use a combination of
solid color tableware. For example: If you are using themed
plates, then chose a solid color for the tablecover. Place a
solid colored napkin down into a themed cup to add color to
the tabletop. Add forks, knives & spoons in a color that
coordinates with the color of the tablecover.
Bring color to the table via napkins. Give each person two
napkins slipped into one napkin ring. Use two different
colors, two coordinating patterns or one patterned and one
solid-colored napkin. A colorful setting can be achieved
with little effort this way.
Tie napkins with curling ribbon, or add
theme associated items like (beads, bracelets, necklaces,
sunglasses, headbands, rings, decorative ribbon or flowers) to serve
as a napkin rings.
The napkins can be laid out on a serving table, or can be
displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center
of each place setting at an angle. The cutlery can be added
before the napkin is tied.
Unfold the napkins, pinch each in the center of the napkin,
and place the center point in the bottom of each glass or
cup. This adds a decorative touch while the glass or cup is
Make a cute centerpiece from
a small hat box turned on it's side with the lid partly off.
Have a spring flower arrangement in the opening.
Decorate a table with
colorful balloon bouquets attached to a balloon weight. Set
tiny decorated Easter baskets filled with candy at each
place setting as favors. Or decorate the table with plastic
eggs filled with candy or marshmallow bunnies.
Create a centerpiece by
filling a large Easter basket with plastic grass and stuffed
Place a decorated egg with
the guests name at each place setting. Hard boil one egg for
each person. Decorate the egg with Easter egg dye. Write the
guests name near the top of the egg and place the egg in a
egg cup at each place setting. To make egg cups, use egg
cartons. Cut out each section and spray with gold paint.
Curling ribbon can be made into curls and scattered over
tabletops for an inexpensive and easy decorative
Streamers can also be used to accent tabletops by making
rosettes that can be attached to the corners of table, they
can also be used to make bows for gifts.
Tissue flowers, will never go out of style!
Attach them to table edges, or tabletops. Tissue decorations
are perfect for those working with a limited budget as they
add bold splashes of color at economical prices. To make
tissue flowers you will need: Tissue paper, twist tie or
pipe cleaner. Directions: For each flower, cut four pieces
of tissue, 4 1/2 - inches x 10 - inches. Layer the tissue.
Starting at one short end, accordion fold the layers of
tissue, making pleats about 3/4 - inches wide. After the
tissue has been pleated, round off the corners at each end
of the pleated tissue to create a rounded petal shape. At
the center of tissue, cut a small "v" shape from the
accordion folds toward the center of the tissue. Repeat for
the side directly opposite. Wrap a green chenille stem
around the notched center of the tissue and twist off to
secure. Carefully open out the pleated accordion folds at
each side of the chenille stem. To make floral arrangements
insert tissue flower stems into floral foam, or gather
flowers into a bundle, then place them in a vase or pot.
Decorate clay flower pots in different sizes and set around
on the tables (Acrylic paint pens work well.) Twist chenille
stems around a rolled napkin to make a napkin ring, or trim
the stem off and use tissue flowers as a corsage or hair
Garland is ideal to mold around centerpieces, outline the
edges of tabletops, wrap around candle bases and votives.
No respectable party tabletop should be left without a
sprinkling of confetti! However, confetti isn't just for
tables anymore! Try sprinkling confetti in a color to match
your theme on an outdoor pathway leading to your party
location, in party invitations, or even inside balloons for
a great, unique touch at a budget price.
Glue silk flowers, plastic
eggs, a small bunny & etc. to a wreath or wide-brimmed straw
hat and hang your creation on the front door.

Easter Egg Hunt
An Easter Egg Hunt is a must
for the smaller children. Hide hard-boiled eggs or plastic
eggs filled with candy around the yard. Provide each child
with a basket and send the children on the hunt (Smaller
children believe the eggs have been hidden by the Easter
Bunny, of course.) After the smaller children have finished
their hunt have another hunt for the older kids. Older
children who no longer believe in the Easter Bunny still
enjoy the hunt. For older kids fill plastic eggs with coins.
The materials needed are as
follows: any number of plastic eggs, paper, pen, yard and
a lively group of kids that are ready to play a fun and
exciting Easter game.
This game is played like the old yet still fun game
scavenger hunt. All you do is hide all the eggs in various
places in the yard. You put a different clue in each egg
giving directions on where to find the next egg clue. Use
a designated color egg for each child or team. The last
egg clue will say where a prize can be found. Some prize
ideas might include: stuffed bunny , money, small toys,
chocolate egg or bunny, or Easter basket full of different
To start the game out give the kids a starting clue and
their designated egg color. Then you just sit back and
enjoy watching the kids entertain themselves.
Easter Hat Decorating Contest
Provide straw hats, lace,
silk flowers, beads, glue & so forth. Afterwards have an
Easter Parade with all the kids wearing their Easter
bonnets. Give a prize for the prettiest, silliest, most
original & etc.
Poke holes in ends of raw eggs
and blow out the contents of each egg, leaving a light, delicate
shell. Reinforce the ends of each egg with colored tape or
notebook paper reinforcements. Choose an starting a finishing
line (about 45 ft apart). Have the kids get down on their hands
& knees at the start line and blow the egg to the finish line.
Tell them not to blow so hard that the eggs turn end over end.
The first child to reach the finish line without breaking the
egg is the Winner! As a variation have the kids roll the eggs
with their nose.
