Easter Inspiration | North Carolina Event Planner

Easter is just around the corner and today we're sharing some of our favorite Easter activities and decor ideas. I love so much about Easter! The pastel colors, decorating eggs, amazing church services, and marshmallow peeps.

Looking for a great gift idea? How about these adorable and easy to make Easter bunny jars?

I love these adorable eggs from Craft Gawker! These would be adorable in an Easter basket.
I love these marshmallow bunny tails. I'm sure the kids would love them in their Easter baskets too!
These awesome eggs are so easy to make. Simple make your dye and place your egg in. Let it sit. Then add a little more water and let egg sit. Continue doing this until the egg is covered. So pretty and fun to make!
Check out these adorable centerpieces!
My daughter loves to hunt Easter eggs so this year we were trying to come up with ways to make it even more fun for her. I found these neat ideas that we're planning to try with her this Easter.
How about a glow in the dark easter egg hunt?! Use glow in the dark bracelets so that you can manipulate the shape and put them inside plastic Easter eggs. Hide and enjoy the fun!
We always fill our Easter eggs with candy or money, but there's always so much candy that it never gets eaten and the money gets lost so easily by the time we're doing our third Easter egg hunt since my daughter never gets enough of it. This year we're throwing in some fun coupons that she can cash in. I think she's going to LOVE it!
Alright, last but not least, we're sharing some adorable Easter snacks! Up first, these adorable Easter s'mores. I don't know why I never thought about putting peeps on a s'more before, but these are so pretty and they look delicious!

Do you have your own special Easter traditions? Share them with us!
