Easter party ideas guide 2021

Host an egg-cellent Easter party with our 5-step Easter party guide.

With Easter comes the longest long weekend in the British calendar.

Starting on Good Friday and running through to Easter Monday, for the majority of us working folk, it means four full days of freedom from the nine to five.

Whether you’re planning to go long and kick things off on Thursday evening after work or are more inclined to hold a Saturday gathering, you’ll need a plan to get this party just right.

Once you’ve got your date sorted and your invitations sent or messaged via Facebook, then it’s time to start ticking these must-haves off your party planning list:


1. Drinks

If you, like us, have learned anything from Christmas it’s that shopping for drinks and public holidays don’t mix, which is why we’re making the booze trip number one on your list.

There will be restricted trading over the weekend, including store closures on Good Friday and Easter Monday. The solution? Stock up early.

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

These booze recommendations and liquor deals can keep you well stocked this Easter.

2. Easter meals

Whether yours is a family affair or a casual get-together, 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 cross buns, easter eggs and bunnies accompanied with springtime lamb. You could even spin the theme a bit with egg and carrot-based meals like a quiche or carrot cake.

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 that need to be entertained. Keep it traditional with the tried-and-tested egg hunts, egg painting 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 including things like cheeky mini bottles of booze inside.

Don’t forget to buy an Easter basket for everyone participating to collect their loot with!

4. Decorations and costumes

Atmosphere is key at any event, so get into the spirit of Easter by decorating your space with all things Easter. In other words, chicks and bunnies!

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

As host, you can never go wrong with a little bit of dress-up and having someone in an Easter bunny suit will go down a treat at a kids’ party, while a simple bunny ear headband is enough for an adults-only gathering.

5. Party favours

Who doesn’t love a bonus treat? No one, that’s who.

Stock up on extra Easter eggs and carrots during your grocery shop 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.
