While the holiday has significant religious meaning, it's also a
great time to party it up with the joy of renewed life - and the return of spring!
Bright colors and flowers are the trick to decorating for a festive Easter party. Consider lilies, tulips, and other spring bulbs, setting the scene with pinks, lavenders and purples as your color theme. This works especially well with a spring garden party theme. Buy matching invitations, or create your own using Easter clip art you can download and print.
Write invitation wording such as "Hop on over for Easter fun!" Or, "We're planning an eggs-citing Easter party!" -- and remember to include the where and when, along with RSVP details.
On party day, start the festivities by serving traditional Easter appetizers (deviled eggs anyone?) and be sure to serve both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to toast the season.
When the party is over, send guests home happy with Easter goodie bags filled with favors and treats such as bunny rabbit plush toys, jellybeans, marshmallow Peeps, and Easter-themed chocolate kisses.
