Easter Ideas from sisterMAG – the sisterMAG Easter Party
You are searching for Easter ideas? We have plentiful ideas in our sisterMAG Easter party feature in #sisterMAG47! Whether it is Easter Sunday or Easter Monday: you’ll probably host a party, get-together or family brunch of some sorts. That’s why we’ve put together Easter ideas and inspiration for the festivities: a recipe for pistaccio semolina cake, a pattern for hand-embroidered napkins and of course ideas for painted easter eggs. As a special highlight we asked illustrator Viktorija Semjonova (Instagram: @viktorijaillustration) to make exclusive printables for us: a menu card, invitation and place cards are included in our package – just subscribe to our newsletter and get it for free as download!
After we’ve learned how the Sorbs celebrate Easter we also have a tutorial in our issue on how to decorate eggs with wax in their traditional way – with a modern interpretation of this technique!
Easter Ideas for an Easter Party with friends
When the first trees and flowers bloom and the days are getting longer, spring and Easter cannot be far away. Easter can be the perfect opportunity for a cozy celebration with friends and family – that’s exactly what we thought! Thus we spontaneously organised a small Easter party. On a beautiful spring Sunday morning, we met in our studio for coffee, cake and fresh fruit and exchanged our personal Easter experiences. Of course we also included classic Easter traditions such as egg colouring and painting. On the next pages you’ll find a lot of inspiration for Easter DIYs and party ideas to become creative yourself. We look forward to seeing all your ideas using the hashtag #sisterMAGEasterParty.
You can look forward to: Recipes for a delicious Easter cake, exclusive printables for menu cards and invitations, backdrop ideas and of course a lot of Easter inspiration!
A successful party starts with the invitation. Together with illustrator Viktorija from @andsmilestudio we developed some beautiful templates for you. You can easily download these as a newsletter subscriber of sisterMAG.
The package includes various invitation designs (both for Easter but also as a general invitation card for your birthday or drinks with friends) and other illustrations and files for printing at home. Table cards with our cute little rabbit as well as an Easter egg menu card which you can fill yourself with your delicious Easter menu.
First step: set the table
Easter is the perfect opportunity to dress the table in bright and friendly colours. We use our rustic wooden table, where the team usually eats lunch, and decide against a tablecloth. We decide that the plates and bowls from »ah Keramikstudio« look even more beautiful!
For our table decoration it is really important to use different heights throughout the elements. That way our guests are not hidden behind huge flower arrangements, but we also create height with a three-tier server at the end of the table. We found our marble server at the store “BUTLER’S”, but you can buy these in almost every interior shop and in many online shops as well. A real investment piece as it can be redesigned again and again.
Let’s paint and craft
In the second part of our Easter party all participants are welcomed to become active. We decorate eggs with Sorbian wax patterns (see next page for instructions) or paint them with little designs. Your imagination has no limit when it comes to this – whether it is abstract patterns or a rose design as we found in an old magazine from 1984.
