Since today is the first full day of Spring, I think it’s the perfect time to debut an Easter printable collection from the very talented, Bird, of Bird’s Party! Bird created a super-cute, and unique Easter set with orange, yellow, green, and brown – a color combo that is sure to appeal to the boys as much as it does the girls! Read on for all the details in Bird’s own words:
Design Inspiration & Styling:
I didn’t want the obvious Spring props like butterflies, lots of Easter eggs, and flowers to style this dessert table. I wanted to create a table that could also inspire any Easter birthdays or why not baby showers too! Usually, I tend to go for overly girly details with lots of delicate touches, but the use of grass instead’ and dots and stripes keeps it “universal” and cute, without being overly feminine – Thank you Chris for the tip! 😉
I’m also a self-confessed chocoholic, and this was the perfect chance to create a full-on chocolate dessert table! The color palette of lime green and orange added a fresh touch, and was entirely based on carrots – the food of choice of the Easter Bunny, with dashes of luxurious brown to evoke all the yummy Easter chocolate – My food of choice!
To be honest, I see so many stunning and elaborate party tables on the web, which I do love; but I actually wonder if a lot of people have the budget, time or the disposition to carry it out?!
So I cheated a bit and purchased ALL the chocolate groceries (apart from the homemade carrot cake) from my local supermarket and patisseries, and I think it just shows that you do not need to spend a lot, nor slave for hours in the kitchen to have a fun and enjoyable party – Minimum effort, maximum satisfaction, I hope!
Party printables are also very affordable and versatile, and this table is a perfect example of how they can be used in all aspects of a dessert buffet to add a nice, personalized touch to your celebration at home!
The centerpiece of this table is the carrot cake decorated with the cake bunting and Easter Bunny cake topper from the collection. All I did was fill and cover a homemade carrot cake with store-bought chocolate spread (Like Nutella), then surround the cake with choclate fingers and decorate the top with mini chocolate Easter eggs. I was lucky and found these in the orange, green and yellow colors I wanted, but you could substitute with M&Ms, Jelly Beans or even Fresh Fruit! Then I wrapped a nice satin ribbon around the cake and placed in the fridge to chill.
The “cupcakes” were actually chocolate muffins with Italian meringue icing, topped with edible sugar decorations also found in the baking isle of my local supermarket. To complete the look, they were decorated with the cupcake wrappers from this collection.
Other chocolate treats on the table were displayed in glass candy jars, embellished with our fancy party labels. The sweets included mini chocolate muffins, chocolate covered pretzels, round chocolate brownies with ganache and nut topping, as well as some chocolate-covered marshmallows and choc-chip cookies displayed in our cute, printable Easter baskets.
Party Favors & Activities:
Party favors consisted of standard 100g chocolate bars, wrapped in the candy wrappers from the collection.
And because no Easter egg hunt party is complete without well, an egg hunt; I designed these little Easter baskets that double as snack baskets that can be displayed on your dessert tables too!
They are sturdy enough to carry small chocolate eggs during the egg hunt, and as take home party favor baskets full of yummy treats!
The fun, photo party props like the Easter Bunny bow tie and Easter Bunny ears are also included in this party collection, and can actually be part of the activities you offer at the party.
Getting the kiddies involved with some fun DIY party crafts that they can take home as favors is a double bonus! Without mentioning that your Easter photos will look even funkier!
Printables include full instruction and list of materials.
Thank you so much, Bird for sharing your Easter collection with us! This is so adorable – especially the photo props! ; D
