Welcome to the Easter Party Vault! We have lots of information here, and hope it helps you to plan the perfect Easter for you and family!


Easter History

Easter, which celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead, is Christianity's most important holiday. It has been called a movable feast because it doesn't fall on a set date every year, as most holidays do. Instead, Christian churches in the West celebrate Easter on the first Sunday following the full moon after the vernal equinox on March 21. Therefore, Easter is observed anywhere between March 22 and April 25 every year. Orthodox Christians use the Julian calendar to calculate when Easter will occur and typically celebrate the holiday a week or two after the Western churches, which follow the Gregorian calendar.


Party Planning

Countdown: Planning is the secret to a successful party. Once everything is thought out, your party will run smoothly.

One Month Ahead:  Decide on the date, time, place, and number of guests for your party. Start by buying or making your invitations.  

Two Weeks Ahead: Phone, email or mail the invitations.  If you're mailing them, be sure to ask for an R.S.V.P. so you'll know exactly how many to expect. Make plans for the menu, activities, gifts (or prizes), and decorations. If you're planning to include any games, be sure to plan more than you'll have time for. This allows you to go on to another game if your guests aren't having fun.

One Week Ahead: Make or purchase the party favors, prizes, and decorations. The big day will be here before you know it.

 Two or Three Days Ahead: Double-check the final guest list and make a tentative schedule for what you'll be doing at the party.  Shop for the food.

The Day Before the Party:   Decorate for your party.  Start early, as this always takes longer than you expect.  Same with the food.  Anything you can do ahead now will make the day of the party much more fun for everyone!

Directions:

2. Melt the white confectioners' coating in the top of a double boiler
over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping
