With Easter just on our doorstep, here’s a look at a few fresh and exciting ideas for celebrating the holiday in style. Even though the bunny only hops into season for this one particular day, this list can be used and reinterpreted to add some Spring cheer to your events throughout the season.
Get creative with your cocktails
Without exception, cocktails are part of any holiday table and this year will be the same. Whether you’re planning an Easter brunch, the last supper or a party, you can’t go wrong with a good cocktail. Give your cocktail a sweet twist, add a pastel coloured drink and line the rim with sugar and pink peppercorns.
If the sun is shining go for a carrot ice cold margarita. Just mix up some carrot and lemon juice, rim the glass in green sugar and add some carrot stems or parsley sprigs on top.

Host the Last Supper
Planning a networking event or throwing a supper club in March? With the rise of healthy eating and the embracing of more seasonal and local produce why not create a Last Supper themed event? Get experimental with the three courses without any use of chocolate, sugar and meat. Look to experts like Deliciously Ella or Sarah Wilson for inspiration. Apart from indulging in healthy eating your attendees also get to play dress up. Want to add something extra to this? Stock up on some sweet and tasty treats to give away in goody bags.
Run a movie marathon
Run back-to-back screenings of Easter/Spring themed movies featuring actors such as Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. Take your attendees back to the classics with ‘Ben-Hur’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ and ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.’ If the weather’s looking fit then try and hire out an outdoor venue. Nothing beats the sunshine, a massive screen, deck chairs and a bunch of mates on a Spring day.
Host a fundraiser
This is the perfect time to do some social good for your organisation and the world. Incorporate an Easter theme into your fundraiser and raise some money for charities, whilst immersing yourself into the town community. Why not try something a bit more out of the box? Like we’ve seen with the Oxford vs Cambridge goat race. Money from race bets can then be put towards community charities of your choice.
