We’ve all experienced our fair share of Easter egg hunts over the years, and after some time the same old celebrations can feel stale. As the kids get older, you probably want to liven up your celebrations to keep them relevant to your family and guests. Or if you don’t have kids, you hope to host a more adult celebration. These five ideas can get you started.

Host a “Crafternoon.” Instead of the usual morning egg hunt, invite friends over for an afternoon of crafting. Purchase a variety of crafting supplies, plan a few themed projects, and let everyone go wild with creativity.

Host an Easter brunch. For a more sophisticated celebration, invite your loved ones over for a spring-themed brunch. An omelet bar, deviled eggs, quiche, chicken-based dishes, or spring veggies round out a delicious, late-morning menu. Don’t forget beautiful, fresh-cut flowers for the table.

Get the adults involved. Egg hunts can be fun for adults, too! Hide eggs in more challenging spots, and fill them with clues to a puzzle that everyone must solve together. Or, give away fun prizes that adults will appreciate.

Host the Spring Games of 2023. Hold an Olympics-style competition, but with silly Easter-themed games instead of serious sports. Challenge party guests to the Bunny Hop, Bobbing for (Hardboiled) Eggs, or Spoon Race.

Take your hunt on the go. Rather than hosting your gathering at home, take it to a nearby park, conduct a scavenger hunt around town, or head out on a nearby hiking trail. But if you hide eggs in public spaces, make a list or take photos on your smartphone so that you can remember to collect them all.

As always, give us a call if you feel that your outdoor space doesn’t match your entertaining needs. We can help you plan for new landscaping, hardscaping, garden space, or fun features like a waterfall or fire pit. Let’s discuss your ideas and make a plan for a backyard you can enjoy in all seasons!
