With Easter around the corner, Party City’s Celebration Experts want families to have an eggs-cellent Easter celebration this Spring. Easter falls on April 8 this year, so families can hop to it with fun activities and budget-friendly party ideas that celebrate the start of Spring. Party City's fresh ideas for throwing memorable Easter parties offer easy ways to make any Easter celebration egg-stra special.


Use an egg coloring kit to create a vivid base color and then add candy polka dots and strips of thin ribbon to create a bold 3-D effect. Egg decorating kits are also perfect for adding embellishments in a flash or creating fancy tie dye designs, marble effects or dinosaur eggs. Or, for a fabulously chic look, dust eggs with sparkly glitter glue and fasten with a delicate small bow.


Give in to everyone’s sweet tooth with an Easter treats buffet. Create a vibrant tablescape by infusing the classic pastel palette with splashes of bright and colorful spring table decorations. Fill glass candy jars with an assortment of colored candies and then top with Peeps. Adorn the table with cute containers in cheery spring color filled with green "grass" and bouquets of beautiful cake pops or cookie pops in Easter motifs. Use Pink Petal Baking Cups to create cupcakes that look like blooming flowers to wow guests and keep them coming back for more.


The highlight of any Easter celebration is the traditional Easter egg hunt. This year, take this family favorite one step further with a customized "Rabbit Run” banner from Party City’s personalization studio to mark the starting point of the race to find the most eggs. Scatter extra Easter prizes, including small Easter favors, stickers, plush bunnies and chicks along the path for surprising fun finds.


Make the event’s special memories last even longer by designating someone to take pictures of the egg hunt, Easter basket reveal and other fun activities. Easter pictures are a strong tradition for most families, and parents can make photos even cuter by handing out Easter bunny costumes and wearable Easter favors, like bunny ears and butterfly wings, to younger guests to wear at the celebration.


Family and friends never need to leave the party empty-handed with tailored Easter baskets given out as party favors. Along with colorful candy-filled eggs and Easter favors, add personal touches like a customized note card in each basket. Remember to send guests off with some Easter treats as well. Party City’s favorite Easter favor idea is very easy: fill Carrot Treat Bags with orange candy and tie the top with a green ribbon to complement a spring fresh theme.
