Easter Table Decoration Ideas
Easter is the perfect time to get creative with the kids........its a long weekend (that we all hang out for), its a way to celebrate the end of summer, and, other than Australia Day and Christmas - its the only other annual ‘decorating’ moment on the calendar.
For us, we always go away camping every Easter to a friend’s place by the river in Orange NSW. An event that is now in its 6th year, its by invitation only and kept at a manageable size of 8-10 families – which on average works out to be around 20 adults and 20+ kids ( hence ‘invitation only’ ); so as you can imagine meal times are very busy. But its a well oiled machine, and everyone knows and respects the ‘camping code’.
Each year our friends (the hosts) “allocate & delegate” the shopping list so everything is catered for and equally distributed. One year you might have to bring the eggs and bacon (that’s usually 12 dozen eggs ie 144 eggs and about 10 kg of bacon!) and the next year it might be the toilet paper (details not given – too much information!) Its a great time to catch up with everyone and a brilliant time for the kids to all play and run free together.
So you’re probably thinking camping at the best of times is all about packing ‘minimalist style’, and you’re right - but its doesn’t mean you have to skimp on bringing some creative bits and pieces for the kids to do – and its great to have a couple of things up your sleeve, not only as kids love an organised activity, but also in case rain.
Here are some Easter decorating activities that are simple and easy to pack and take on holidays – plus some other great ideas to add to your Easter decorations, all with a little help from Pink Frosting.
Decorating eggs – (yes, the order just got bigger!) Use hard-boiled eggs, as easy for kids to handle, and decorate them using stick-on-dots and thick rubber bands or masking tape, then place the eggs in food colouring and let sit for a few minutes; pat dry with paper towel and peel off the stickers/tape/rubber bands to reveal your design. Hint: put some white vinegar in the water when you boil the eggs, as it will help the dye soak into the shell a little better. And remember to boil them slowly so the shells don’t break. Oh – and if food colouring is a scary thought for fear of having little blue or pink coloured hands, then use watercolour paints. Or if tinned beetroot is on the menu, keep the juice - that’s a great colour!
On display – now to display the kids eggs, and these great little Bird nests add the extra finishing touch – or you can simply pop them into these gorgeous individual cup cake holders and add some cotton wool on the bottom to help sit them up in the cups. Or as one big combined coloured egg display, pop them all into one of these fabulous woven picnic baskets – a great centrepiece to the table too
Hanging eggs – using paper lanterns, hang them up so at working height for the kids and them let them loose to decorate their own themed easter egg. Paint them with spots and stripes, or glue paper cut-outs or glitter, or whatever takes their fancy – perhaps make them use their natural surroundings and get really creative, gluing leaves and poking sticks through the paper – go crazy! Then string all the paper lanterns up over the table or amongst the branches of a big tree for one long easter egg display. (OK – so they are more ball-shaped and not egg-shaped but you get the drift?)
Egg collectors – easter wouldn’t be easter without an easter egg hunt. So let the kids decorate and personalise their own egg basket using these fantastic pails. They come in four different sizes so you can choose age-appropriate size. Paint them, wrap ribbon around them, use stickers, or whatever craft you have for the kids to get creative. Hint: write their names on the bottom of each pail to help them remember which one is theirs!
No matter what you decide to do, you can find some fun Easter decorations and party supplies at Pink Frosting to help you celebrate the best of the season.
