If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know I love planning parties! You also know I loveeeee a good deal! This past weekend our family hosted a Easter event at a local park and it was honestly one of the best days of my life. We had such a wonderful day! I wanted to give you some tips on how to host a similar event, especially since you still have a few weeks until Easter!

First, I thought of the aspects of an Easter party! An egg hunt was a must! Almost all of the children that were invited are around Adalynn’s age – 1 year old! I knew this egg hunt could be super simple and the kids would still love it! I searched Oriental Trading for egg fillers and found just what I needed!

Bubbles, stickers, chocolate carrots, bouncy balls, and gummy bears (well, rabbits hehe)!

They also had the cutest mini Easter baskets which were perfect for those little hands!

Since our yard isn’t huge and we were hoping for good weather we decided to host it at a local park. That park also has a walking trail and a playground so that was an added bonus! After the egg hunt, we decided we’d have a picnic style lunch. I arrived early and claimed some tables and each family brought a dish! It helped me so much that all our family friends were so willing to do that! I can’t imagine lugging all that food to the park and then dealing with clean up! Yikes! I also packed a few simple decorations in my bag to make it feel even more festive!

Next, I hid the eggs and then the kids were off! For most of these kiddos they were too little last year, so this was their first Easter egg hunt ever! (insert huge smile and mama tears here)
