Easter is on it’s way with all of it’s promise of hope and renewal! It’s such a beautiful occasion and time of year, perfect for colorful parties and Springtime celebrations. Here are some easy to make desserts and Easter party ideas that won’t break the budget!
I say that paper is your friend when it comes to party decor. If you have a die cut machine or a friend with a die cut machine make use of it! I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out these Easter eggs that are the art backgrounds of this party. Next, I created a white egg background in the Silhouette software and ran it through my Cut’n’Boss embossing machine to add texture. I added foam dots to pop them up from the paper background and dropped them into frames. Ta da a background!
The photo props were simple and fun to make! Don’t you love all those bright colors? I tried to stick with my pink, blue and yellow theme as much as I could. I’m not great at matching colors so when I choose something that works, I repeat it throughout the design. Once again, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out Easter photo props and used the Cut’n’Boss to add some interesting embossed elements to the pieces. To make them easy for guests to hold, I glued them to colorful paper straws. Cute, fun and ready to use for silly party photos!

Snack Pack pudding cups are perfect for parties! I decorated them to resemble Easter baskets by using a simple flower paper punch and pretty paper. A quick addition of adhesive dots holds the paper to the Snack Packs.
You can do more than just serve the Snack Packs you can make your own little recipes with them! The new Easy Open Lids make opening them simple. Here, I peeled off the lid and added mini Nilla Wafers and bananas to create a pretty and easy to serve banana pudding. They taste great! You can find other Mix-Ins ideas here.
I’m using the Super Snack Packs. They’re a great value and you get 60% more pudding per cup!
I picked up the Super Snack Packs at Walmart. I was able to find everything that I needed for the party there!
Rabbit house! My husband made this. We had a blast creating things for this party. He learned how to make Royal Icing and built this bunny house out of Honey Maid Graham Crackers, Nilla Wafers and a vanilla Oreo. He colored coconut with green food coloring to create the grass. The bunny nose is half of a jelly bean. Initially, the roof extended the length of a full graham cracker but we both forgot one essential thing that you learn in any cake creation bake off show…weight matters. I can’t count the times we’ve watched shows where people put too much icing or other pieces on top of a cake or other confection and tried to carry it and it broke. I made it to the table with the rabbit house in tact. Then I said, “Wow, this all worked out perfectly!” Right after I said that, one part of the roof cracked and fell off. I just burst out laughing. Later, the next piece fell off. So, this bunny’s ears are shorter than planned. Keep that in mind and stick to lighter items when adding them to unsupported rabbit house areas.
I’ve seen these on Pinterest for years and thought, “One day…one day maybe I’ll try it.” Well, that day came! Honestly, I thought they’d be hard because they look sort of complicated to me, especially since I have zero experience making cookie pops. They weren’t hard at all! You can do this!
I hope you enjoyed these party ideas! Let me know what you make and how it goes!
