An Eggstravaganza of the Highest Order!!
Last week we had an amazing Easter party, the theme was the Mad Hatter’s Tea-Party.
The art department created a magnificent setting for our annual feast. We moved the canteen tables and chairs out to the theatre area, so that we had enough space to create a long banqueting table. We then placed a line of fake grass down the centre of this large table and decorated it with paper flowers, candles and some quirky cups and saucers.
Our white trees came in handy once again. We hung playing cards, eggs, paper keys and love hearts from them and dotted them around the table to give a magical forest feel to the space.
We created our own rabbit hole, tiny doorway and disappearing cheshire cat.
We had so much fun thinking up ideas and working together to bring these ideas to life.
Our tastebuds were given a wonderful treat, all thanks to Catherine in the Kitchen. She made a large cake and cupcakes for everyone and decorated some of them to look like tiny birds nests. It was a wonderful spread.
During the day we had an Easter egg hunt and Easter Bonnet competition.
We are so happy with how everything turned out. Everyone pull together and we created a truly egg-cellent easter party.

“Well….I wore a costume in and I was dressed up as a rabbit. We done a fashion show which I was in and loved being a part of. We went on an easter egg hunt which was great craic. The dining room was amazing, it was like you were having a picnic outside in a forest, the decorations were so good. I loved getting my photograph taken. I had loads of fun, it was a great day.” – Edward Gannon
