Easter is coming up and we couldn’t be hoppier! We’ve compiled a list of tips to help you host the ultimate Easter extravaganza.
1. Pick an Appropriate Location
There are a number of things you need to consider before you start to put together your Easter event, such as the amount of people attending and demographics – is it a family-friendly environment? Does it need a more corporate feel?
Depending on your needs, a classic backyard egg hunt at family members house might suffice, or a more elaborate search at your local park or a hired venue may be more appropriate.
2. Set-up and Decoration
You’ll want your space to be welcoming and comfortable for all your guests. Having the right kind of setup can determine the mood for the rest of the event.
Important for any event is: plenty of seating options. And here at Chillizone, we know that event furniture hire can be a lifesaver. If you want a more relaxed atmosphere, bean bags are the way to go. If you’re looking to impress your guests without blowing your budget, hiring stylish event furniture can go a long way.
Decorations are also key. Helium balloons are fun for all ages and can really add to the festive mood. If you’re looking to make your event look more elegant, flowers and fairy lights are a perfect touch. Painted rabbit footprints can get everyone in the mood and are great for younger guests. If you’re hosting your event in a larger public area like a park, hiring some white picket fences to section off your space can be a simple way to add to the Easter aesthetic while also creating a more intimate atmosphere for your guests.
While chocolate is a must for any Easter event, you might also want something a little less sweet (and just a bit healthier) for your guests. Catering is a good option if you have a larger number of people, or if you want to focus your attention elsewhere instead of cooking on the day. Otherwise, you can never go wrong with a good old-fashioned BBQ.
Having fruit and veggie plates prepared beforehand can also be a good way to satisfy your guests’ sweet tooths while also giving them a break having a sugar overload.
While an Easter egg hunt is a go-to for any Easter celebration, you may want to organise a few other activities to keep your guests occupied. You can extend the search by hiding clues inside of eggs to lead them to their treats instead—especially for older children and adults who are children at heart—or shake things up a little by hiding small prizes.
Basket decorating and egg painting can also be fun ways to keep younger guests busy. You can even create a prize for the ‘best painting’.
