Easter Party Guide: Easy Decorating Tips for your Easter Party!

Easter is just around the corner, and we’ve shared plenty of ways to celebrate the holiday with our Guide to Easter 2014 in Singapore (we’ve even got a handy DIY Easter Basket tutorial in the works — so stay tuned!). For those mamas opting to bring the party home, we wanted to give you a bit of inspiration for hosting an Easter-themed bash! Here Lauren Roberts of Sweet Soirees (from our buddies in Hong Kong) shows us how to create a beautiful garden-themed Easter table setting:

I chose to go with a yellow and white colour scheme for my garden-themed Easter table. After a wet and windy few weeks, I wanted to bring something bright and fresh to the table!

I started designing my Easter table by figuring out what food and drinks I wanted to serve. Sticking with the yellow and white colour scheme, I found all kinds of yummy Easter treats:

  • Macaroons – TWG Tea
  • Mini marshmallows – Cold Storage
  • Mini eggs – Marks & Spencer
  • Lemon cheesecake – Marks & Spencer
  • Rice Krispy treats – Homemade
  • Cupcakes – Homemade
  • Watsons lemonade – Cold Storage

I found that the best places to find Easter treats was Marks & Spencer and Market Place. They both have a great selection of Easter eggs, cookies, chocolate bunnies and more.

A fun activity for your family is to turn your cupcakes into little flower pots. This activity is really easy and will look great on your Easter table. All you have to do is make your cupcakes using a cupcake baking tray about 12cm wide. Once your cupcakes are cooled and ready, cut the cupcake holders down to where the cake starts (this prevents you from seeing the paper peak over the top of the flower pot).

Place your cupcakes inside your mini flower pots (you can buy them from Ikea). Once your cupcake is snug inside, use a flower shaped piping nozzle to decorate your cupcakes with icing (if you don’t have one of these you can buy them from Bake King). Voila! Cute flower pot cupcakes perfect for any spring Easter table.

Decorating the table is half the fun. I got my Easter party props from the nurseries on Thomson Road. I decided to use a mix of fresh flowers and Easter props such as bunnies, chicks and some cute rustic flower boxes. You can’t really go wrong at Far East Flora! They have all the spring flowers out in many different colours and they smell amazing. I decided to go with quintessential spring Easter flowers such as:

  • Yellow daffodils
  • Yellow pansies
  • Yellow tulips
  • White freesias

If you’re looking for some Easter props, there are also a few shops along the Thomson Road which sell cute Easter decorations like bunnies, chicks, baskets and eggs. However, go early as the nurseries are nearly always a season ahead and may run low on decorations.

Lastly, to add that real pop of colour I decided to create a Yellow and White ribbon backdrop. They’re super easy to make — all you need is a bit of coloured crepe paper, some sticky tape and a whole lot of patience!

I hope you’ve found these tips useful and that you have a great Easter party, mama!

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
