Party Planner! Easter Egg Hunt

March 23, 2013

Welcome to Party Planner! This weekly series will outfit you with inspiration for your next celebration. These little mood boards are only a launch pad for the epic celebration I expect you to manifest.

Easter Sunday is just around the corner, so it’s time for flowers, pastels, and basket-weave everything. Take advantage of the ombre trend with cute skirts and cardigans, try out a pair of sky blue shoes, and of course, throw a spring fling! Inspiration and ideas below.

This Week’s Party Theme: Easter Egg Hunt

First of all, it’s not Easter without peeps, so grab a pack next time you’re at Duane Reade. Whether you eat them or just Instagram them is not the point. ;}

Pick out a chic basket weave tote for egg-collecting and stack on the spring arm candy. You’ll need a pair kicks good for prancing around—that’s where the Keds come in. Hang pastel tinsel around the apartment, gather up some party favors to bestow upon your fellow egg-hunters, and hide those hand-decorated eggs! Before you go out on the hunt, whip up some gluten-free cupcakes to snack on when you return victorious.

Local side note! If you live in Greenpoint Brooklyn like I do, you’ve seen baskets of dollar-and-change neon hued Polish Easter eggs set out at every bakery, butcher, and discount store. When I first moved here it was January, and these eggs were everywhere. A totally new twist on the pastel Easter decor I’d grown up with! I fell madly in love with them and hunted through for new colors and designs every time I went to buy groceries.
