Easter DIY ideas: Hosting guests, crafts and baking

 In DIY AND GIFTS, Home life

I literally love any excuse to get creative and to decorate or make things. Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter? I’m there and I’m hosting.

Nothing makes me happier than getting together with friends outside of the pressures of work and doing simple things that get us working together, communicating and smiling.

Bring back all the simple things in life.

This Easter, after just having moved into our new house in London, we decided to host an open house on Good Friday and invited all of our friends into a whatsapp group to see who could make it.

We wanted it to be chilled, we wanted it to be fun and we wanted it to be Easter. Here’s what we got up to to inspire you to host your next get together…

We did an Easter egg hunt, obviously…

Release the inner child, hide them in the garden or in your house and give everyone a little bowl. Whoever collects the most wins the big egg!

I filled the place with yummy Easter goodies…

These gorgeous homemade goodies were made and delivered by Lucy Claire Bakes. We went for a box of the brownies, red velvet cupcakes, mini egg and white choc cookies and the brownie balls (all of which were Easter specials). Lucy is SO talented, these treats were dangerously YUMMY and were devoured almost instantly by our guests. See Lucy’s website here.

I bought an Easter colouring in book from a kids toy shop LOL…

I swear down this was the most popular activity of the LOT. I bought loads of baking bits but they weren’t even touched. Topic of conversation for the afternoon was along the lines of ‘which colour shall I do the bunnies ears?’. WINNER.

I bought all the chocolate and rice crispies and mini eggs to make little chocolate nests…

But as mentioned above, the colouring won and the nests were never made hahaha. Here’s some Pinterest inspo for what they could have looked like lol…

I bought bunny ears and so did the guests…

We had SO much fun with a certain set of bunny ears. You know the ears i’m talking about. Get yours here.

We created a summer playlist…

We had drinks with Easter bunny straws…

I bought hot cross buns…

and we ate them all! Toasted with a little bit of butter throughout the day!

I picked up all the cute little bunny things, mini eggs and even this cute little carrot dish to brighten up the place…

Top tip: Head to Flying Tiger, kids toy shops, art shops, Wilko etc for crafty / baking bits!
