If you want to know how to plan an Easter egg hunt, here’s the scoop.
It takes a little planning, that’s true. There’s plenty to do to get ready, especially “filling” plastic eggs with toys and treats on the To-Do list.
NAN’S TIP: As soon as Easter’s over – snap up the holiday “leftovers” at HALF-OFF for next year’s hunt!
Why not “up your hostess game” by using these clever Easter Egg Hunt Signs?
The children will locate every single Easter Egg with help from these adorable Easter Printable arrows.
Use them to point the way, or what’s not the way, to the Easter “booty” you’ve hidden.
Just make sure you place the signs along the route as you hide the eggs. Don’t forget to make the “map” of your hiding spots as I mentioned above!
Just download the FREE PDF, print, cut out and you’re in business.
It’s one of the things my parties are known for. You might call it one of the “signature elements” of my entertaining style. You wouldn’t believe how many clients added the guest party favor option I offered as part of their catering package.
I love to see the faces of my guests when they leave my home with that, “little something extra” in tow.
Some may think of it as passé, but I couldn’t disagree more. Who doesn’t like to end a fabulous gathering with a “memory”, be it a culinary one or otherwise.
When I’m in the planning stage of a party, I start with a brainstorming session to help get my “creative juices” flowing.
Collecting a list of words, phrases and images that conjure up the vibe I see for my gathering, helps me conceptualize. From there, it’s just a matter of getting creative with the inspiration the list brings to my planning.
Thinking about the Easters I spent in Northeastern Pennsylvania in my tiny hometown made me feel really nostalgic.
Memories of homemade sweet butter lambs, poppyseed yeast rolls sliced and slathered with that same butter. Taking our Easter dinner foods in a large basket to be blessed with holy water in our church’s basement on Saturday morning.
My Polish heritage was a dynamic force in my youth, especially around the holiday seasons.
I called my Mom and emailed my sister and brother, asking them for some memories from those years. I’m busy putting together a wonderful “Polish Easter” post for next week. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
So, as I was thinking of those butter lambs, inspiration struck. That’s kind of how it works sometimes!

I’m not including specific directions on how to make molded chocolates in this post, but you can get the directions by clicking on my Valentine’s post that goes into detail on the techniques, tips and my “secret” ingredient.

Since I’ve been making specialty candies for years for my catering clients, I already owned my lamb molds.
I have a large mold for butter or Easter basket presents, and one that has two sizes of small lambs for candy making.
However, I checked out my fabulous friends at Amazon Prime and found several choices of both butter and candy molds that are available and inexpensive. The candy lamb mold is under $7. with free Amazon prime shipping.
That’s really reasonable when you consider that you’ll have the mold for years. DO NOT wash them in your dishwasher… they get more expensive if you need to replace them after melting. Been there, done that.
If you look at the lamb favor picture above, you’ll see I also experimented with a bag of pastel colored chocolate chips.
I attemped to make “patchwork” lambs, that despite turning out really cute, the process was such that I couldn’t recommend it to you readers. I’ll keep working on that one!
The paper maché gift boxes were left over from my Fairies in the Forest Twilight Soiree Party last Summer. Also available at Amazon with free Prime shipping.
Pulling out my paints, I started working and that’s what I ended up with an hour later. Just get creative and paint at whatever level of “Resident Artist” you have inside you.
I have a friend, also a Nancy, that would end up with little “works of art” if she got hold of this Easter entertaining idea.
She’s an amateur artist with an expansive amount of talent that shows up all over her home.
In fact, she just posted a pic on Facebook of her newest matching duo. I can only aspire to her level of painting talent.
Thankfully, my talents lie in other areas of artistic endeavors. Everyone has their own personal talents, you just need to give yourself the opportunity to explore and develop them.
(those are candy “rocks” inside as part of my forest themed party)
