Easter egg hunts are perfect because they include a lot of candy, children’s smiles, mimosas, and daylight partying.
All these things are right up my alley, that is why, three years ago, I decided to start hosting Easter egg hunts/brunchs in our backyard. Our house might be small (900 sq ft) but our garden is GIANT! so it is the perfect scenario for children to have fun.
This year, 50 people are coming. 25 of them are younger than 10! This affair will be loud, fun and sweet. Before you feel overwhelmed by MY to-do list (and general craziness), you need to know that I am not cooking. All guests bring food to share. I just take care of the decorations, eggs (galore!), and drinks. I know this is still a lot of work. Just hiding 1,000 eggs (yes, I wrote one thousand) can take more than one hour, but I enjoy it so much.
I have been pinning decoration ideas like crazy, and just enjoying planning the party so much. I really like to host… sometimes.
The colors of the party will be lavender and mint (not aqua, not teal, not light green… it is MINT! Why is it so hard for vendors to understand that there are words to describe colors and they should be R-E-S-P-E-C-T-E-D, or the world will turn into total chaos. Is that too difficult to get? Mint is NOT aqua, are we in the clear yet?).
After that little color rant, here are some of the photos I am using for inspiration. They are divided in 3 subjects: party décor, eggs decoration and food.
Let me know what do you think!

Easter Eggs Decorations
Metal is the word!
Gold leaf = LOVE
These are definitely my favorites, but I don’t think I have the time to go hardcore like this with 1,000 eggs, do I?

Flowers WILL be included on or in food items, that is for sure. Don’t really care if they are edible or not. People, just don’t eat the flowers, ok?
