Easter Party Decorations

I'm celebrating Easter Saturday this year. It's a little odd I suppose, but it was the day that worked out for most people. I appointed myself to the decorating committee, just because.

The best parties are really about the people that are there with you. So mostly I'm thinking about a little bit of atmosphere and ways to facilitate fun. We may all be adults, but I think none of us are too old to hunt for eggs or do silly things in the name of chocolate.

Easy DIY Streamer Garlands from Oh Happy Day!Oh Happy Day has this really easy DIY to turn regular streamers into a scalloped garland. Honestly, I can't believe this never occurred to me before.

 

Naturally Dye Eggs from The KitchnEaster is all about the eggs. I'm pretty OK with that. One of my favorite things has always been dying eggs fantastic colors. As an adult I'm less OK with the chemicals in Easter egg dye, so I'm going to try using colorful foods to naturally dye my eggs this year. The Kitchn has some great recipes that make it seem really easy.

 

Painted Egg Carton Gift Boxes from Design MomI love these painted egg cartons from Design Mom. I think they'll be especially adorable filled with chocolate eggs.

 

DIY Cascarones from The Paper MamaI'm not totally familiar with Cascarones. But the idea of them is delightful. Crack an egg over someone's head to get the toy or treat out of it and a little confetti to rain down on the crackee. The cascarones from the Paper Mama are especially fun with all that glitter!
