How To Have An Adult Easter Egg Hunt
It can be a lot of fun learning how to have an adult Easter egg hunt. Your guests will feel like a kid again as they scramble to gather the most plastic eggs. After all, many grow-ups get a kick out of the traditional Easter egg hunt. It’s a great reason to leave the kids at home and let the adults play.
To throw an adult Easter egg hunt you will need:
- Dozens of plastic Easter eggs
- Candy and grown up goodies to fill the eggs with
- Beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic)
- Buffet table
- Table cloth
- Large metal bins
- Send out invitations. Your invitations should include all of the pertinent party information, like the date and time of the event. In order to have an adult Easter egg hunt, you need to let guests know to leave their children at home. You should also include on the invitation that they should bring an Easter basket with them for their eggs.
- Set up the buffet table. Simply set up the table and cover it with either a white or pastel color table cloth. Use this table to set up all the snacks so that guests can grab what they want easily. Large metal bins should also be filled with ice and bottled beverages. You can actually use one of the metal bins as the centerpiece for the table. Make sure to have some non-alcoholic beverages for those guests who prefer not to drink.
- Fill the plastic Easter eggs. While some Easter eggs can contain candy, the best part about having an adult Easter egg hunt is that you can include items that are a little risqué. Keep in mind the items have to be small though. Use things like different varieties of condoms or sample size bottles of lubricant. Other ideas may include small toys from the past like yo-yos, parachute men or mood rings.
- Hide the eggs. Since your crowd has a bit more sophistication than your average four-year old, don’t simply scatter the eggs on the ground. Try to hide them in harder spots like in a tree or under some bushes.
- Set a time limit. Let the guests know before the hunt starts that they will have fifteen or twenty minutes to find as many eggs as they possibly can. The faster they have to move, the more fun the hunt will be.
- Count the eggs and award prizes. When the hunt is over, have everyone count their Easter eggs. Prizes can be awarded for finding the most eggs, finding a “special” egg or even a consolation prize for finding the least eggs. Prizes don’t have to be extravagant. They can be as simple as a chocolate bunny. If you have the right crowd, consider giving away more “adult” prizes.
