MAKING THE INVITATIONS
Before you host the perfect Easter tea party, you have to plan the invites! For a more traditional look, print out a free card template online with an Easter theme from and mail to your guests.
Or for a fun twist, send out these adorable Easter Egg Tea Party Invitations. Simply cut out the egg shape on colorful cardstock. Next, cut off the top of the egg, cutting in a zig-zag pattern. Glue a piece of rectangular paper in between the two halves, and write your party details inside. Decorate the egg shell with any Easter stickers or embellishments to make it extra personal for your friends.
How to Make Easter Egg Party Invites:
- 1. Trace and cut out an oval on colored cardstock.
- 2. Print out the party details on small rectangular strip of paper
- 3. About 1" from the top of the oval, carefully cut across the paper in a zig-zag pattern.
- 4. Glue the ends of the rectangular strip of paper onto the egg halves, making sure all the text is visible. Decorate the eggs however you please - ribbons, stamps, and even glitter will go great!
These are sure to put a smile on your guests' faces when they receive them in the mail!

These decoration ideas are perfect for bringing the essence of spring to your table, without breaking the bank. Spruce up your house and tea table with these fancy and fun decorations that say "spring is here!"
Dress up your table with these lovely mini egg nests! Made with only paper scraps and candy eggs, these mini paper nests are both affordable and adorable centerpieces, appropriate for the spring season. Simply cut strips of scrapbooking paper, preferably with a paper shredder, and pile a handful together to form a nest. There's no recipe for perfection here - each nest is unique and impossible to mess up. Next just place a candy egg in the center and viola! Place several mini nests around the table to fill any empty spaces, or make a large paper nest with several eggs as a stand-alone centerpiece. You can also play around with the colors of the paper strips to match your table-scape and overall color scheme for your party. The best part about this craft is that at the end of the tea party, everyone can enjoy a treat!
Swap out your flower vase for a hand-painted mason jar to adorn your table! Painting a mason jar in pastels is any easy way to show an Easter theme in a fun way. Add an adorable twist to this craft by painting your jar a solid yellow, and using a sharpie to draw on eyes and beak to make a baby chick. You can also paint it white and draw a bunny face, tape on some paper bunny ears, and use cotton balls to make a fuzzy tail. Place a few of these painted jars around the table with your favorite flowers inside for a beautiful springtime bouquet.
To add a playful touch of fanciness to your tea party, create these simple and easy bunny place cards for your table! All you have to do is print out a bunny template onto a sheet of colorful card stock, fold the paper in half, and cut out along the outline. If you prefer, you can make personalized designs onto the place cards for each guest using sharpies and scrapbooking materials. We recommend adding fuzzy bunny tails with teased-out cotton balls. As a busy hostess, you can even have your children make these in advance for some fun crafting.
EASTER PARTY ACTIVITIES
You've probably dyed eggs with food coloring countless times, but did you know you can use tea right from your kitchen to make vibrant and colorful egg dye?
Dying eggs in tea is fun way to naturally tint eggs with a vibrant hue. Combining strongly steeped tea with white vinegar allows the color to stick onto white hard-boiled eggs. Just dip the eggs into the dye, refrigerate overnight, and have bright colorful eggs to hide the next morning!
Easter baskets are a holiday staple, but there's no need to constantly buy new ones! Weaving these baskets is a fun and personalized way to make your own through recycled materials. The only materials you'll need for this craft are scissors, tape, and a whole bunch of colorful paper for your guests to choose from. These baskets are perfectly durable for venturing on an egg hunt and rambunctious kids. If you really want to earn the title of hostess with the mostest, arrange small treats like jelly beans and chocolate bunnies that guests can take home in their personalized baskets as goodie bags.
Twisting together fresh flowers to form a flower crown is a pass time you never outgrow. Walk your guests through this simple steps to get a gorgeous headpiece, that will make both kids and adults feel like a spring fairy.
Start by cutting a circle of floral wire about the size of your head. From there, gather a variety of flowers and greenery from your backyard or local florist (pro tip: baby's breath lasts longest!) and start threading them through the wire. For a more allergen-friendly alternative, feel free to use faux flowers instead. Snip the stems of the flowers, leaving only 3-4 inches. Using floral tape, attach the flowers to the wire base, sorting them to you're liking. Once you're satisfied with the arrangement, make sure the flowers are secure, and then enjoy your ethereal spring look!
