Do not forget to put label against each item so that your guests know what they are eating.

As the bunch gathers to enjoy the party, hand them the materials they will require for decorating like paint, stickers, markers etc. Ask them to make egg people. Let the kids use their imagination. An innovation that combines drawing a face into the shell and completing it with ribbon, felt and ribbon will be interesting and super fun.

Biblical characters are also very popular. Blooming crowns is an option you can use.

Some examples of Easter party foods include scalloped potatoes, honey baked ham, citrus and herb roasted chicken, carrots, fresh breads assorted with mouth watering desserts. To this add some appetizers too. Dish up salmon stuffed eggs (instead of deviled eggs), a gourmet cheese tray, an array of dips with savory crackers and fresh veggies. Get a little creative and think of some exciting gift ideas. Present bags of jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and handmade soaps.
