Whether you’re planning a family picnic with kids galore or a more grown-up shindig this Easter weekend, it’s time to start ticking these must-haves off your party-planning list.

1. Drinks

There’s a good chance your local liquor store will be closed or have limited hours on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, so stock up early to avoid any party fouls.

An easy way to do this during the week leading up to Easter is by shopping online and getting your booze delivered to your doorstep.

These liquor deals and recommendations can keep you well stocked:


2. Easter meals

Theming your food to suit the season is always a welcome surprise and a nice way to get your guests excited about the holiday. Think hot-crossed buns, easter eggs and bunnies, accompanied by springtime lamb. You could even spin the theme a bit with a carrot cake for dessert.

For more traditional ideas, you might like to bring a rich chocolate nest cake with little mini eggs on top to the party.


3. Games

The fun starts with Easter games, especially if there are little ones looking to be entertained. Keep it traditional with tried-and-true Easter egg hunts, egg paintings and egg relays.

But if this is an adults-only Easter party, you can tweak the Easter egg hunt to make it more adult-friendly by buying plastic egg casings and hiding things like mini bottles of liquor or gag gifts inside.

Oh, and don’t forget to buy an Easter basket for everyone participating to collect their loot!


4. Decorations and costumes

Get into the Easter spirit by decorating your space with all things Easter — in other words, chicks and bunnies!

Prefer to keep it simple? A more subtle option might be to deck your home in baby blues, yellows and pinks.

Or maybe you’d rather go all out and have someone dress in an Easter bunny suit to treat the kids to an unforgettable party. For more adult-friendly events, a simple bunny ear headband will do the trick.


5. Party favors

Who doesn’t love a bonus treat? Stock up on extra Easter eggs and carrots during your grocery shopping and pop them into a treat bag for your guests to take home. You can further fill their loot bags with themed novelties and toys.
