Create a lively table. Use fun stationery or hard-boiled eggs as place cards. This is something you can even have the kids do if you choose to use the hard-boiled eggs as place cards. It will be fun for them and it will keep them entertained. Kids love to feel like they had a part in getting ready for the big day. Don't forget fresh flowers. Keep bouquets short and tidy...very easy to put together. Think outside the box if you don't have enough vases. Try using unique things around the house...drinking glasses can even double as nice vases. Line the arrangements down the length of the table. Hydrangeas, tulips or peonies are great flowers for Easter. They really liven your table up.
Plan out your music in advance so you are not playing DJ all day. I like to put together a simple playlist on my iPod but if you don't have an iPod you can also use the pre-set music channels on your tv...there is always a holiday one. Otherwise, just throw in a one of your favorite cd's. Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble or Frank Sinatra are a few good stand-by's.
Don't forget the Easter egg hunt. If you have different aged children attending - assign each child a color then hide the eggs based on the age of the child - the older the child the more challenging the hiding spot, the younger the child the more obvious the hiding spot - don't count the adults out - hide eggs near the buffet or around the living room and kitchen. It's more fun when everyone can play. I like to hide one special egg - I call it the Golden egg (probably because it's golden), anyway, put something special in this egg - money or a ticket to a show or sporting event. This egg is for all to find.
Just remember to relax and have fun with your guests. Easter is a day for family and friends. So have a Happy Bunny Day!
