Easter is a joy-filled holiday where families can come together, enjoy a meal, share old traditions and create new memories. If you’re looking to surprise your family with something new this year, we have a few ideas that will help take your Easter celebration up a notch or two.
Set a floral tablescape
Nothing makes an Easter brunch more festive than a bountiful floral arrangement. Head to your local flower shop and pick up a few of your favorite stems to arrange yourself. From hydrangeas to lilacs, roses to peonies, you can’t go wrong with any one of these springtime blooms. Feature them in intricate vases, surrounded by greens and votive candles, or lean into simplicity. Either way, your custom floral arrangements will be the talk of the table.
Celebrate rain or shine
April showers bring May flowers, and for those who are celebrating Easter, there’s always a chance your egg hunt could get rained out. That doesn’t mean you have to let rain clouds put a damper on your Easter spirit! Prepare for rain by setting up a tent in your backyard or at a park and host the hunt under dry skies. This way, kids and adults can enjoy a classic egg hunt together without having to worry about the weather.
Rent festive décor
If you’re hosting Easter for the first time, don’t feel pressured to go out and buy all new décor that you might only use once. Contact a local rental provider and choose from a variety of linen napkins, dinnerware, silverware and serving utensils to minimize the personal stress of pulling it all together. Knowing that you can have décor delivered to your home allows you to focus on your guests and ensures that everything will be aligned with an overarching, cohesive theme.
Decide on a non-traditional dessert
Everyone loves a chocolate egg, and some people are Peep fanatics, but try throwing a new dessert into the mix! We suggest setting up a dessert station that features a chocolate fountain. You could stick to one type of chocolate, or have a few different options like dark, milk and white chocolate. Arrange a tray of marshmallows, fruit, pretzel sticks and caramels for your family to dip themselves. Kids will have a blast creating chocolate creations and adults won’t be complaining either.
