I always have so much fun making invitations for parties. And yes, you can make invitations even if you’re just inviting members of your household.
When I make my physical invitations, I either slip them under bedroom doors or by their dinner plate. Sometimes I just send out a group text. For this year’s Easter PJ party, I just decided to make a cute invitation in Canva and sent it in a group text.
You may also choose to send an Evite if you are inviting friends and extended family members. Alternatively, you can purchase or DIY some invitations and mail them out.
I highly recommend you check out my Instagram post to see all of our pajama party fun. But I am including an image here of the decor we used to help with your own planning.
I kept it relatively simple with a fun backdrop, some cozy pillows and blankets, and some pastel-colored tablecloths. It really only took me an hour or so to set up even with the balloons on the backdrop. But I do recommend using an electric balloon pump if you’ll be blowing up a bunch of balloons.

- Pastel tablecloths
- Cozy Pillows and Blankets
Attire (Complete With White Bunny Slippers)
Okay, this was my favorite part. We were initially going to wear matching Easter pajamas but then decided to just all do our own thing. BUT…
We HAD TO wear our matching bunny slippers! I’ve actually always wanted a pair of white bunny slippers, so I was super excited that BunnySlippers.com provided my kids and me with a pair of their Classic Bunny Slippers. And I HIGHLY recommend these super comfy and quality bunny slippers for the kids and adults at your Easter pajama party.
You may even consider custom pajama tops if you want to do the whole matching thing. But whatever you do, make sure everyone brings along their bunny slippers for this event!
If you’re starting your PJ party around dinner time, you may want to offer a full meal like pizza or even a nacho bar. We did our pajama party after dinner and therefore just did light snacks: popcorn, sugar cookies, and some mocktails.
Movies & Games for Pajama Party
Pajama parties are the perfect opportunity to bring out your favorite board games – and we did just that. You can also play a few rounds of trivia or whatever other fun game you come up with – the girls really enjoyed playing limbo. Here are some fun board and card games to consider:
- Easter-themed card games
- Noah’s Ark
- Jumping Jack
- Uncle Wiggily
Lastly, you may want to wind down for the evening with a movie. We watched a family-friendly comedy to finish off the night.
