Easter is such a fun time of the year when you have young ones. Now that my kids are old enough to actually enjoy a party, I wanted to throw one for them and a few of their friends. I knew I wanted it to be a little different so I came up with a “Hip Hop Hooray” party based off of my favorite ’90s rap song. Disco balls and Easter eggs — how much fun could that be?
To help set the tone, I started the design process with the paper products. I knew my hip hop bunny had to be cool, so I went with a modern design, incorporating sunglasses and a border of black dots. I set up a nibbling station to house all the snacks and treats, like turkey wraps (“Rabbit Raps”) and 24 karat gold cookies. I also styled a carrot patch featuring snack cups filled with crushed Oreos for dirt and strawberries dipped in orange melting chocolate. The kids loved them. I finished off my table design with some grass mats, a white furry blanket for my backdrop and, of course, some disco balls. The kids got their hip hop on by dressing up in bunny-themed props like ears and glasses. They danced their little hearts out then nibbled on their treats at the “Bunny Break” table. When everyone was hip hopped out, I sent them home with some “Peeps for my Peeps.” The kids had so much fun, and I can’t wait to try something new next year. Happy Easter!
