Kara's Party Ideas Easter Appetizer Egg Vintage Boy Girl Spring Party Planning Ideas

This delightful EASTER APPETIZER HORS D’OEUVRES PARTY was submitted and styled by Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes.

Some of my favorite ideas from this party are:

  • The birch pattern buffet card holders
  • The paper flowers taped to the walls
  • The fact that it has an appetizer buffet instead of a dessert buffet
  • and MORE!

This is what Erin said about planning the party– “I usually throw dessert parties, and they’re awesome and beautiful…but sometimes I’m left with tons of desserts and I end up eating ALL of it! I have a big problem…which is why I decided to go easy on the pastries and chocolate for this party. I threw this party for my family (hubby, kids and I).  Kids weren’t quite as smitten as the Dinosaur party, but my husband was a big fan of the food! The recipes were easy and delicious and there was plenty left over. I was a big fan of the decor…because I designed it and it’s just how I wanted it to be!

Party Decor:

I am a HUGE sucker for vintage items…but I also don’t like things that look dated.  That’s why you’ll see a lot of my designs have vintage touches with really vibrant colors and modern elements.  I LOVE this set.  I based my designs on three patterns that were coordinating, yet totally different from each other. One pattern is the beautiful birch pattern (seriously, you’ll be seeing more of this pattern because it adds so much class, even though it’s so simple), then I have a light blue and white floral and a bright, vibrant floral. I made the roses using the patterns from my printables and I also made matching placecard holders (my favorite element). I tied it all together with gray ribbon and leaf-like plates and platters.

Food:

I think I outdid myself this time. I mostly credit it to moving into a house I love with a kitchen I love EVEN MORE! I whipped these things up way faster than I thought I would! The menu included: Yummy Deviled Eggs, Smoked salmon, capers and dill cream cheese crackers, Bacon Cranberry Chicken Wraps, Pineapple Pork Lettuce Wraps and Strawberry Shortcake Fudge.”
