{Real Parties} A Gingham Inspired Easter Party


This Gingham Easter table created by Christine of Pure Joy Events is full of cuteness and DIY details! If you are hosting a get together this weekend, you still have time to incorporate a few of these adorable details. The gingham theme was carried throughout the party with subtle Japanese touches here and there.

Christine used her daughter's gingham shower curtain from Pottery Barn as the dessert table backdrop! How wonderful that she did not have to spend money on fabric for a backdrop!


The topiaries are beautiful! Between each topiary was a handmade cherry blossom centerpiece. Christine shares the how to here.

The banner was another pretty element of the table. Printable cards from Monkey Moo Moo were edged with gingham Japanese washi tape, sprinkled with glitter, then strung together with pink ribbon.



How cute are these lollipop flowers with tissue petals and paper leaves?! Christine promised to share a tutorial soon!




Peepshi (Peeps sushi) was one of the treats on the dessert table. CUTENESS!


A friend of Christine's made the beautiful cake and the cherry blossom pinwheels were made by Decorate This!



Of course the little guests participated in an Easter egg hunt. While the eggs were being hidden, the kids decorated their eggs and baskets with little gems, washi tape and stickers. See how to make the washi tape eggs here.

An egg toss with another activity which is fun for many ages!


Thank you Christine for sharing this cheerful Easter party with us!
