Egg Hunt Party

Last weekend we attended an awesome egg hunt party hosted by my friend Jackie.  The weather was perfect (I mean we were wearing heavy coats, but the sun was shining brightly) and everyone had a great time.  Jackie thought of so many cute details and, as usual, made many yummy treats! 

The girls waiting patiently for everyone to arrive...

Instructions for the hunt (Jackie split up the kids into two age groups to accommodate younger siblings).

And they're off!

Checking out the goodies in each egg (they were shaking each one to find candy).

Then the big kids started a serious game of kickball...

and the grown-ups and littles got serious about the snack table!


Cute right?  We loved the jelly bean cookies (recipe here)!  I really didn't think I would, but YUM!  And the girls loved these individual baskets of snack mix (they were so easy for the kids to take outside and walk around with too).



There was healthy food...

and Heather food!  (Easter candy is the best!)

Jackie even made us all treats to go!  The kids each took home a homemade chocolate peanut butter egg and a cute pencil.

The grownups didn't fair too badly either...Easter Bunny Ale (with extra Hops)!

Thank you Jackie for a great afternoon (and for letting me share all your ideas here too)!

The Easter Bunny Ale is my favorite... with extra hops! Too cute!

OK, seriously...I could (would) never have kids, as the PRESSURE to put on these amazing parties is just TOO MUCH!

Sorry but the Easter Bunny Ale did not make in until Easter. It someone hopped into my hand. Mmmmm.

Laughing out loud at your comment of "healthy food" & "heather food" - LOVE! Just another thing we have in common :-)

Also adore EJ's coat - too bad it doesn't come in adult sizes!!

What a cute party! Love the "Heather" food.

Yay!! I'm a little giddy right now :) I'm glad you all had fun (as I had a ton of fun getting it all together!) Maybe it'll be an annual thing... and tell Matt that it's ok that the Easter Bunny Ale didn't make it til Easter.. with all those extra hops, it's a good thing he got it before it hopped away :) Hoppy Easter!!
