Hosting Easter: Tips for a Fun Outdoor Gathering

Posted by Fortunoff Backyard Store

As spring approaches, now is the perfect time to consider your Easter plans. Hosting an Easter brunch outdoors allows you to enjoy the beauty of nature but also creates a warm and inviting atmosphere for your guests. From setting up the perfect outdoor dining area to organizing a fun-filled egg hunt, here's everything you need to know to host an unforgettable Easter brunch in your backyard.

Setting Up Your Outdoor Dining Area:

The key to hosting a successful Easter brunch outdoors is creating a comfortable space for your guests to gather. Start by selecting the right outdoor furniture set for your space. Consider the size of your patio or backyard and how many guests you'll be hosting. Opt for a patio dining set that offers ample seating and fits well within the available space. An extendable outdoor table would be a great upgrade if hosting more outdoor gatherings is in your future.

When choosing outdoor furniture, prioritize durability and weather resistance. Look for materials such as teak, aluminum, or all-weather wicker that can withstand the elements and require minimal maintenance. Patio cushions should be made from outdoor-grade fabrics that are fade-resistant and easy to clean, like our Grade A outdoor cushions.

Arrange your outdoor furniture to encourage conversation and mingling among guests. Create a focal point, such as a beautifully decorated table or a cozy outdoor fire pit, to anchor the space and add visual interest. Don't forget to provide shade options, such as patio umbrellas or a pergola, to keep guests comfortable on sunny days.

Decorating for Easter:

Enhance the festive atmosphere of your outdoor Easter brunch with thoughtful decorations. Incorporate pastel colors, fresh flowers, and whimsical Easter-themed decor to set the mood. For the dining table, we recommend a centerpiece featuring seasonal blooms, Easter eggs, and candles. Mix and match tableware in coordinating colors to add visual interest and tie the look together. Don't be afraid to get creative with your decorations – DIY projects like painted egg centerpieces or floral wreaths can add a personal touch to your outdoor Easter brunch.

Hosting an Egg Hunt:

No Easter celebration is complete without an egg hunt! Hosting an outdoor egg hunt adds an element of excitement and fun for guests of all ages. Before the event, gather plastic eggs and fill them with small toys, candies, or chocolates. Hide the eggs throughout your backyard, making sure to vary the difficulty level based on the age of the participants.

Create a map or list of clues to help guide guests in their search for eggs. You can also designate different areas of the backyard for different age groups to ensure that everyone has a fair chance of finding eggs. Consider incorporating themed decorations or props to make the egg hunt even more memorable – think bunny footprints leading to hidden treasures or a mini scavenger hunt with riddles to solve.

To add an extra element of competition, award prizes to the guests who find the most eggs or solve the clues the fastest. Small Easter-themed gifts or baskets filled with goodies make excellent prizes and add to the festive spirit of the occasion.

Hosting an Easter brunch outdoors is a wonderful way to celebrate the arrival of spring and spend quality time with family and friends. By setting up a comfortable outdoor dining area, decorating with festive Easter decor, and organizing a fun-filled egg hunt, you can create lasting memories that will be cherished for years to come. So gather your loved ones and enjoy a delightful Easter brunch in your backyard!
