Easter Sunday is almost here, and it’s a fab chance to spend some quality time with family and friends. If you’ve decided to challenge yourself to host an Easter get-together, we’re here to offer a helping hand! Whether you’re looking for Easter home decorations, thoughtful Easter gifts or neat tricks to keep the kids entertained, our guide has all the inspo you need to celebrate Easter 2022 in style.
How Do You Host The Perfect Easter?
The best way to make sure this Easter is THE best ever is by being super prepared. Send out your invites early to get an idea of how many hungry tums you’ll be feeding (or whoever else has taken dibs on being chef!).
This will give you plenty of time to stock up on all the essential cooking appliances and food you’ll need. Just remember to consider any dietary requirements for a smooth sailing feast.
Prior to festivities, pull together an Easter playlist with all your favourite tracks (Taylor Swift, welcome!) to bring feel-good vibes all day long.
Prep A Fab Easter Lunch
When it comes to Easter lunch, it’s always a good idea to stick with what you know. Go for a foolproof recipe you are familiar with, and guests are sure to leave that five-star Michelin review!
You can plate up as many courses as you’d like, but a three-course meal is always a crowd-pleaser. Pop to the shops a week or so before your Easter gathering and pick up all your cupboard items (this is where kitchen storage containers will come in handy!). Any fresh items you can grab the day before.
With your official RSVP list, you’ll know how many guests you’re catering for, which means you’ll be armed with the right-size roasting dish and plenty of stylish tableware.
Easter Drinks Reception
Mix things up this Easter and welcome your guests with a delicious Easter drink. Whether you decide to whip up an Easter cocktail or serve up a premixed drink, your family and friends will be pleasantly surprised when you roll out the drinks trolley.
These glam display units make an excellent centrepiece (and talking point!). Most importantly, this means you don’t have to spend all afternoon on drinks top-up duty – the dream! Cater to everyone with non-alcoholic cocktails and soft drinks, and jazz your drinks trolley up with glitzy glassware and abstract ornaments.
Inspiring Easter Table Ideas
Easter inspired table settings can make your celebrations feel even more special. At George, we love a solid colour theme and choosing tableware in pastel shades such as blush pinks, lavenders, and soft blues is a refreshing way to channel Easter vibes.
Nothing says Easter quite like yellow, so go bold and bright with our vibrant collection and show spring has truly sprung! If you’re a lover of simplicity and like to keep things chic, our mono minimalist trend is the one for you.
For a personal touch, lay handmade place cards for your guests to compliment your choice of sophisticated cutlery set – Oooh – fancy!
Artsy Easter Decorations
It’s time to round up your little chicks and create colourful Easter decorations. Have your arts and crafts box at the ready, roll up your sleeves and show off your creative flair.
Kids can recreate their own Easter bunny by drawing a smiling face on a paper plate and attaching a pair of bunny ears. Put an egg-citing Easter twist on classic hanging decorations by cutting some egg-shaped pieces of cardboard and arranging them into a wreath – SO cute.
Little ones will love making a simple paper chain decoration with coloured paper in Easter pastels. You can always top up your homemade decorations with new season wall décor and our stylish artificial plants and vases.
Dress For The Occasion
There’s no better way to get into the Easter spirit than bossing the getting ready routine. When you’ve eventually changed out of your pyjamas (we know how hard it can be!), pop on your Sunday best and glam up for the occasion. The whole family will want to look their best, and our boy’s new in and girl’s new in clothing collections are bursting with stylish picks for little fashionistas.
Floral dresses and smock dresses are the epitome of Easter-chic and men’s casual shirts teamed with wear-again chinos create a classic look ideal for Easter plans.
Take The Celebrations Outdoors
Who says you’ve got to host Easter lunch indoors? Not us! Transport your Easter celebrations to the garden and have a cute lil’ Easter picnic instead (weather-permitting obvs!). Grab your favourite blanket, picnicware, some outdoor cushions (gotta keep things comfy), and you’ve got the basics covered.
For an ultimate boho-chic set-up, dress up a wooden palette with a runner or tablecloth and accessorise with our Meraki trend. DIY picnic table – voila!
Finish The Day With Easter Entertainment
No celebration is complete without some entertainment, and you called it – an Easter egg hunt is on the cards!
Send your little adventurers off with a handy Easter basket to collect their chocolatey treasures and award the well-deserving winner with a toy they’ll love.
If the grown-ups decide to sit this one out, the whole family can get involved in challenging puzzles and board games – winner gets out of the Easter tidy up!
