This fantastic EASTER DESERT BUFFET + PARTY was submitted by Cris McGrath of Crissy’s Crafts!
The printables used in this party are available for FREE here!
Such a cute party with so many adorable ideas! Perfect for Easter or any spring soiree! Some of my favorite elements in this Easter party are:
The Easter egg tree
The favor cones filled with fresh fruits and vegetables
The glass egg cups holding chocolate eggs
Here’s what Cris had to say about planning the party- “I always have a blast styling a party using Amanda’s Parties To Go printables! Amanda has the most adorable and colorful designs.
The dessert table was full of easy and colorful treats that were a feast to our tummies and eyes! To create the pallet backdrop, I glued several pieces of scrapbook paper found at Hobby Lobby to a foam board. I attached the Happy Easter Banner from Amanda’s free Easter collection and added mini wreaths to the backdrop. The sweets included Kisses push up pops, Tulip cake pops, Hershey’s chocolate, chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and sweet popcorn. I kept the sweets simple and focused on the presentation using a lot of Spring items and took advantage of the huge items included in the printable set to really make the party pop. The party activity was to build and paint your own bird house, and of course we had an Easter Egg Hunt as well! It was a fun and happy way to welcome Spring and celebrate Easter!”

I usually have a few months to plan…that way I can collect items that I like and not have to spend a ton at once. For this party…that wasn’t the case. My sister-in-law didn’t want to make me do anything for my niece’s party because she knows how busy I am, but it just so happened that I was designing a princess printable set and she was planning to make a Rapunzel cake…so we definitely had to collaborate for another fantastic party! Also, we didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I came up with the idea to have a ‘Princess Printable Party!’
My sister-in-law made the Red Velvet Cake with REAL Red Velvet icing (contrary to popular belief, it is NOT cream cheese icing). It looked so cute with the Rapunzel printable cut out!
I created 6 different princesses for this set: Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty (from Beauty and the Beast), Frog Princess, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. This party is seriously a great idea for little girls. I created necklaces, bracelets, wands and crowns using my Fairy Tale Princess Printables…and they’re so fun! We also made tutus for the girls and they obviously had a BLAST pretending to be princesses.”

“Being ahead of the trends and unable to find exactly what I was looking for in the stores is what prompted me to start designing invitations and party accessories for myself. As my children got older, I found it hard to find party invitations and supplies that were more age-appropriate and less juvenile. When friends and family started asking me to design for them, I decided it was time to offer my creations to everyone and Leslie Zander Design was born.”

Isn’t this SHABBY CHIC PRINCESS BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Louise Sanders of Sunshine Parties absolutely gorgeous?!
Louise said- “Every little girl wants a princess party at some stage of their childhood, so we at Sunshine Parties decided to put a twist to the traditional castle and pink plastic crowns look. We added a fresh take on a princess party but with a vintage shabby chic look.
The trick to party decor is that it is all in the detail! We created this look by using our designs from our latest Sunshine Parties printable set. All digital design elements can be printed on a home PC printer and handmade. This makes the party unique and still affordable! With a little imagination this party can look beautiful and your little girl will love it.”
