Easter Garden Party Ideas

Easter in the garden!

Take your celebration for Easter out in the garden! Fresh air, sunshine and singing birds, are all  good back ground for an Easter Garden Party! We wanted to share with you some of our ideas from our Boy's Easter Garden Party that might help you with any planning you may be doing for Easter or in general.

Sweet candy sticks cans easily be made using seasonal, novelty finds in the grocery store as the main focal point on the candy stick. We always place the "main" piece at the very top of the candy stick.  Simple add ins such as gum drops, and other gummy candies look great and help make the stick come alive even more. Place them in treat bags or pretzel bags depending on the size of the candy stick.

Never over look the dollar store for fun little party decor pieces and/or sweet treats such as these Spring cookie flowers we found. They are already wrapped in plastic, so all we did was to tie a piece of material around to top of the stick.

Embellish store bought Tootsie Pops with a scrap piece of fabric to add interest and to bring extra color and pattern to your table. Use candy in the colors of your theme, and present them in interesting pots or dishes.

Here are some dollar tree carrot suckers that we opened and added a green mint gummy leaf to and stuck in a treat bag, than placed in a thrift store pale blue pot for presentation.

Peeps are always fun to decorate with, and when you make "Peep sticks" by adding some other marshmallow treats along with the Peeps, it gets even better! We found some sour apple marshmallow apples in complimentary colors we added.

Add a  little whimsy here and their like we did with our cereal "Bird Seed" bowl with a cute little feathered friend! Use some cereal already in the cupboard you have been hoping to use up!

Look for unusual pieces at garage sales and thrift stores to use as props for serving some of your treats on. We found this little chair/bench at the thrift store and used it to hold and serve some treats in a jar. We kept it as is, and did not even paint it because we liked the look of distress we found it in.

Boys love their collections of different things. Our collection idea for this party was rocks {jelly belly beans}, worms {gummy worms}, and bugs {gummy bugs} all kept safe in mason jars which add another charming look to your treats.

Bring in more color and fun by using colored drinks such as juices, milk and of course, water. We love using water bottle labels. They add that extra special finishing touches.

We used real potted flowers on the dessert table and made brownie pops dipped in blue chocolate that we stuck into the flower arrangement to add a whimsy look.

A must for all our parties are party favors. We used store bought chocolate covered sunflower seeds, put them in little treat bags and made a little tag that said "Seeds of Love".

What would a Easter garden party be without mud and worms?! BORING!!! So we made some chocolate pudding,  served inside a little terracotta pot, with a plastic insert, crumbled chocolate cookies on top and stuck in some candy worms. Hummm...... on second thought, are they candy worms???!!!

We love having more than one party favor for our guests to take home. We found these little baskets at the dollar tree in the baby shower isle, and embellished them with pom pom trim and so some circuit cut outs. Placed in a few different pieces of Easter candy and placed at place settings.

Sometimes you find the unexpected in a garden Easter party, especially for boys! Boys love the adventure of discovering something new exploring it.

                           So what do we have here?! Speckled eggs! 

                Not just any ordinary speckled eggs, but Pop Tart speckled eggs. 

 Easy diy project using a thrift store sheet and some ribbon to make a  party bunting. When the party is over, they can decorate the indoors!

                                        Chasing butterflies!

Pretty garden eggs.

We hope we have given you some ideas and inspiration for your next garden party! Be inspired, get creative!

Your name, O Lordendures forever,
Your fame, O Lord, throughout all generations.
For the Lord will judge His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants.
Psalm 135: 13-14
