I whipped up a little Easter party for my daughter’s class yesterday. The kids are two and three years old, so I tried to keep things fun, simple and inexpensive. Here are a few ideas for quick and easy food and decorations.

Here’s one of the tables. The plates were all ears. Super quick, cheap and easy to make. You can download the template here.

I found some fun and springy plaid napkins and thought it would be sweet to pleat them into bows. Hair bows for the girls’ bunnies and bowties for the boys’.

I secured the center with a small piece of white pipe cleaner.

I used inexpensive plastic tablecloths–lavender layered on top of green with ruffled edges as seen here on Cupcakes & Cutlery.

I found some cute little plain spring trees in the dollar bins at Target and used them as centerpieces. I stuck jellybeans on the tips of the branches to make them a little more colorful and fun.

The kids couldn’t help but snack on them while they enjoyed their other food. I made my bird’s nest brownies, and served baby carrots and ranch dressing and some snack mix with juice boxes.

A customer of mine asked me for some treat tags for Peeps last week with the message “You’re one of my favorite Peeps,” so I whipped some up for her and they turned out so cute that I decided to make some for myself and leave those in the kids’ cubby holes from the big man – the Easter Bunny.

After they all had a belly full, it was time to head outside for the egg hunt!

They sure did find all those eggs a lot faster than we hid them! Go figure. I was really pleased with the way everything turned out. With just a few simple ideas that were easily executable, we had a cute and memorable party. Just goes to show you don’t have to spend weeks of time and lots of money to do something fun for your little ones! Note to self.
