With a beautiful, white modern home, lush green lawn and a stunning view, we needed very little to bring the spirit of spring to this epic Easter egg hunt. Guests were greeted by colorful modern bunnies attached to the front gate. The children fueled up on rabbit food- organic carrots and hummus in mini flower pots, yogurt/berry/granola parfaits, and donut holes served in egg cartons. They kept track of their mini milk bottles by writing their names on the charming labels. We used faux grass as a table cover to bring a more springy vibe to a concrete side patio. The kids decorated their own baskets and once the hostess let them loose, the kids made out like bandits- they should've had bigger baskets! We worked with the setting and just added a pop of carrot orange to the green and white environment. Throw in some colorful tulips and poppies and spring was alive & well! We made the chevron table runners, and had the florist create a garden style centerpiece using wheatgrass and flowers. Not only pretty, but useful- we hid eggs in them! Parents sat back a took in the scene from a cool lounge set up. Once the hunt was over, everyone sat down to a healthy and delicious brunch. The kids table resembled the adult tables, save for the addition of moss bunnies. An adorable carrot & bunny banner hung from the picket fence that was brought in as a safety wall. The first step from the yard is a doozy! After brunch, the kids worked off their French toast in the spring-themed bouncy.
What People Ate
Pre-hunt, guests noshed on organic veggies & hummus in mini flower pots, yogurt/berry/granola parfaits, and donut holes served in egg cartons. Brunch consisted of individual egg casseroles, a French toast bar, grilled cheese for the kids, sliced chicken atop an arugula salad and fruit.
What People Drank
Bellinis, mimosas, wine and sparkling Arnold Palmer's (grandma's secret recipe) were flowing for the adults. We kept the kids from getting too sugared up by serving water and coconut water.
Donut holes with a yummy crème anglaise.
Overflowing Easter baskets!!!
