Retreat to Honeywood and disconnect to connect

Honeywood’s expansive landscape was the perfect location for a family-friendly outdoor Easter egg hunt.

Families hunted eggs, enjoyed the beautiful blue skies and spent quality time with their loved ones.

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the [Honey]trail. This Easter weekend, Honeywood Valley “egg-citedly” hosted their very first Easter Egg Hunt event. Families large and small brought their kids of all ages for this festive, outdoor and COVID-friendly event. With sunny skies and a slight chill in the air, the forecast couldn’t have called for a more perfect day for an Easter egg hunt.

Hunting for easter eggs at Honeywood valley

There’s no better way to enjoy the outdoor lunch than with a graze box picnic by Honeywood’s beach and Lake Lomah.

Whoever said brunch was to only be enjoyed at a sit-down restaurant has never had a brunch graze box. After the kids hunted and found all the eggs, families were able to sit and enjoy a colorfully arranged brunch graze box by Table and Thyme. Full of fruit, veggies, sweets and salty snacks, the brunch box had a wide variety of offerings for every craving. 

Who says you’re too old for face painting and crafts?

Once all the eggs were found, kids (and adults, too) had the option of getting their faces colorfully painted or pictures taken at the photobooth. Other activities included a petting zoo, outdoor lawn games and a special visit with the Easter Bunny which were all enjoyed by guests of all ages. 

Oh, honey! The vendors brought so much character to Honeywood’s Easter event!

After grazing and snacking, families and guests shopped with the local vendors at their trucks and tents. At one stop, guests could fuel their afternoon with a cold glass of tea from Red Diamond, because when life hands you lemons, put them in your Red Diamond sweet tea, right? Just when you thought the vendors couldn’t get any sweeter, the Easter Egg hunt was buzzing with excitement for Eastaboga Bees to serve up the sweetest local honey. Families and guests were able to stock up on honey and shop local. Eastaboga Bees weren’t the only ones selling “honey” at the Easter Egg Hunt! Here’s a hint — what is colorfully painted with honey bears all over? The talented Jayne Morgan sold her signature honey bears and colorful paintings, and it was one tent guests did not want to pass by. In keeping with the honey theme, the Wild Honey Flower Truck was blooming with fresh flowers. Guests could select from pre-arranged flowers or create their own unique flower arrangement to take home with them. Special thanks to the talented vendors who sold their craft and products as well as those who shopped locally to support them! 

Thanks for joining us at Honeywood’s inaugural Easter event. We can’t wait to see you next year!

To say that the Easter Egg Hunt Event was a HOPPIN time is an understatement. Brunch boxes were grazed, vendors were shopped and supported, the Easter Bunny visited with several friends, and no egg was left untouched.
