Modern Easter Party Theme

Can you believe that Spring is already here?! (Ya… me either!) And in celebration of the new season and the holidays it brings, I’m excited to debut this brand-new, fabulous – and aptly titled – “Easter Has Sprung” theme from Anders Ruff Custom Designs!

One of the first things that caught my eye about this theme was the bright colors. There’s something so refreshing about seeing vibrant, BOLD colors and patterns for an Easter theme. Also loving the hanging “garland” of paper parasols, the use of bookshelves as a “dessert buffet”, egg-shaped cake pops, DIY ribbon topiary trees, a fantastic cake covered in stripes & kaleidoscope patterns… and more!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Maureen & Adria

We have spring fever at Anders Ruff and were excited to style our Easter Has Sprung Printable Design collection! We designed this printable collection with colors of chartreuse, aqua, periwinkle and tones of pink.  We incorporated patterns that remind us of Easter – including polkadots and gingham – as well as some unique, festive patterns like a stitched stripe and kaleidoscope/pinwheel pattern.

Here are some key elements from our shoot:

DESSERT DISPLAYS:

  • Candy and confections go hand in hand at Easter.  Instead of styling a traditional dessert table, we decided to display our Easter desserts on white garden style shelving. This would be a unique and easy way for anyone to display desserts using a bookshelf from their own furniture collection.
  • We picked out several elements that remind us of spring and Easter and brought them into the dessert table.
  • Paper parasols of coordinating chartreuse/pink and aqua were hung upside down (to symbolize spring / easter / april showers bring may flowers) over the shelving from  Luna Bazaar.
  • We displayed wheat grass in long glass containers (IKEA).  This is an easy way to bring a natural element onto your dessert table. (and add a pop of color) We stuck treats into the grass (marshmallow bunnies and chicks by Dandy Delights), marshmallow lollipops with printable party logos and adorable coordinating cookies by Allyson Jane)
  • Glass apothecary jars were displayed on every other shelf and were filled with candies from Candy Warehouse. We wrapped ribbon around the necks of the lids and added party logos from our printable collection.
  • The top shelf held candies as well as adorable egg shaped cake pops that were displayed in tiny glass ramekins by Terri’s Party Treasures and were embellished with cute printable party flags from our collection.
  • We served cupcakes in small natural square fiber pots that we painted with white paint.  We embellished these containers with ribbon and filled with natural kraft shred. Cupcake toppers from Two Sugar Babies added a pop of color onto the natural white butter cream and shred.  The cupcakes were served in pink baking cups from Hey Yo Yo.
  • We found perfectly matching aqua lacquer boxes that were trimmed with white.  We lined the insides with our printable kaleidescope/pinwheel patterned paper design.
  • We filled the lacquer boxes with natural shred and displayed cookies by Allyson Jane in one.  In the other we displayed a classic chocolate bunny along with blown eggs.  We also showed our easter egg candy button sets (DIY!)
  • Our cake artist, Mandie of Got What It Cakes, designed a tiered cake with the bottom tier perfectly coordinating with our graphic kaleidescope/pinwheel pattern.  She made a  bunny silhouette to match our graphics for the top tier.
  • A great find were these adorable tin lunchboxes from Michael’s that were gingham (in the perfect colors to match our collection).  We tied a favor hangtag from our printable collection to the side and added a party logo to the front to create an adorable favor container to display on the shelf.
  • We made our own Easter baskets (DIY Project!) using natural fiber planters that we painted with matte white paint.  We drilled holes in the sides for the handles.  Ribbon was wrapped tightly around wire to create the handles. We then embellished the basket with thick wired ribbon.
  • We showed a few ways to coordinate and fill your Easter Basket (DIY) – we used our printable bubble wraps to wrap the bubbles (a standard in every Easter basket, right?), egg shaped lollipop covers, egg wrappers and mini chocolate bar wrappers and printable treat cones.
  • Homemade candy dots/buttons were made (by us!) in the shape of an easter egg (DIY) in the colors and design from our collection.  We showed them in cellophane bags with a patterned paper bag topper.
  • Shes Kinda Crafty created a perfectly coordinating ribbon topiary tree that was filled with jellybeans. This was displayed on a shelf with chocolate bunnies.
  • Our DIY Easter Basket project was also useful because we filled one with jellybeans and stuck long aqua/pink and white unicorn lollipops from Candy Warehouse out of the pot and filled it with jelly beans and real blown eggs.  This sat on the floor beside the shelving display.
  • Soda glass bottles with our printable drink wrap embellishment were served on an aqua lacquer tray with green and white paper straws from Hey Yo Yo.

*****

EASTER EGG HUNT:

  • We wanted to show the second half of our Easter shoot outside for a classic tradition – an Easter Egg Hunt.
  • We hung our “Happy Easter” Banner among flowering bushes to enhance the outside scenery – anyone can put this simple decor up to make their outside environment festive without much fuss!
  • We wanted to show our (DIY) Painted Fiber Pot Easter Baskets and (DIY) Fiber Pot Cupcake holders and the Ribbon Topiary, by Shes Kinda Crafty, in the natural elements.
  • The kids loved carrying around their baskets, and they are very lightweight which is good for younger children.
  • We of course, had the traditional Easter Egg Hunt with plastic filled Easter eggs.
  • The complete Printable “Easter Has Sprung” collection is On Sale 50% off for a limited time.

    I would love to know how to do the DIY candy buttons. How sweet are they?! What a great idea. This shoot is super sweet. Lots of fantastic ideas.

  20. SugarFoot Designs March 22, 2011 at 10:30 am

    Those Easter egg cake pops and ribbon topiary are too cute! Will have to try making those!

  21. Lisa F. March 22, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Every single detail is perfectly executed…AS ALWAYS when it comes to Anders Ruff! :-)

    Would you mind sharing where you found the laquered boxes? They’re awesome!

    Also, for anyone interested, the mini glass ramekins that the egg pops are set in are from IKEA. I just saw them the other day and thought they were adorable, but wondered what I could use them for…now I know! {IKEA is also a good source for mini shot glasses, mini martini/champagne/wine glasses for dessert shooters, etc.}

  22. Maureen Anders March 22, 2011 at 11:27 am

    Hi everyone! Thanks so much for featuring our Easter styled shoot, Jenn!

    As for the questions about the candy dots/buttons, we DID make those by hand…. They were super easy!
    We will be doing a DIY tutorial on our blog soon.
    I saw the recipe on A Few of My Favorite Things blog and decided to adapt it to make candy dots in the shape of an egg….

  23. Sarah March 22, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    Wow! Great pictures. Thought you might like this…….

    This looks like such a sweet party theme! We’re having our family reunion for Easter this year, and I may have to borrow some elements from this, since I’m coordinating! I love the parasols in particular. :-)

  39. Melanie April 12, 2011 at 7:57 am

    Has anyone see the big fiber pots that were used as Easter Baskets?? I can find the small one but not the larger size.
    Thank you!
