How to throw an Easter party for kids with Coral Atkinson of Velveteen Babies

How to throw an Easter party for kids with Coral Atkinson of Velveteen Babies

Coral Atkinson, founder of magical children’s room décor brand Velveteen Babies, lives in Yorkshire with her husband and their three little ones Felix (7), Barnaby (4) and Willa (1).

The family has recently moved into a new house with a garden and are looking forward to spending this weekend playing in their tree house and hunting for Easter eggs.

We caught up with Coral to find out more about how she’ll be celebrating Easter and get her tips for egg-tastic treats, the best bunny decorations and of course what to wear if you’re having a party. Find out more below…

HELLO SPRING

We’ve now been garden owners for eight months, so this is the first springtime in our new house. It’s so good to have outside space to prepare an Easter egg hunt, and for us all to enjoy being outside when the sun shines and have friends and family over. 

Luckily all the children still believe in the Easter Bunny, so they will be very excited by Easter Sunday!

EGGTASTIC TREATS

We all have a sweet tooth in our family, so it’s good to source really lovely treats from the marvellous folk at Creightons Chocolaterie in delicious flavours (a firm favourite in our house). We will also be chomping on Easter biscuits from Biscuiteers, which came in a beautiful keepsake tin. The attention to detail just blows me away, they are all ‘nearly’ too good to eat.

LET’S DECORATE

I love nothing more than lots of pastel, and decorating for a celebration, so I’ll be hanging up decorations and setting the table with the fun Meri Meri tableware from Little Lulubel. The children will adore the bunny cups and napkins, and all the sweet colours.

We have decorated our Plum Play adventure tree house in the garden with all our pastel decorations, Velveteen Babies bunny garland and the children will no doubt insist on holding their own members-only Easter tea party up there away from the grown ups!

WE’RE GOING ON A EASTER EGG HUNT

As I mentioned before, we now have a garden, so the ‘Easter Bunny’ will have to get up early on Easter Sunday to lay an Easter egg hunt for the children. They have the lovely Piki Baskets from Cottage Toys to collect up their treats, which they play with all year round. This year Willa can finally join in with her big brothers and she loves carrying a little shopping basket around.

DRESSING UP

Barney and Willa will be wearing their stylish Bonnie mob outfits to race about finding their Easter treats and hang out in their tree house. The fabrics are so soft and have lots of stretch for busy arms and legs, they love how comfortable it all feels, Barney’s shorts come with a pack of iron on fabric badges so he spent a while choosing where they would all go, it’s such a sweet idea and he’s very pleased with his styling work!
