Love and joy are abundant in the Easter season, and so is the work put into making it memorable!
Consider all that goes into the planning (and execution!) of a delectable Sunday dinner menu for the family. How about mastering the art of hiding colorful plastic eggs throughout the yard? The gears in your head have probably started to whirl with plans, tentative meal options, and ideas on what exactly to put into that Easter basket.
We’ve compiled a to-do list to help you prepare so that you can sit back on Easter weekend and enjoy all that it represents. In order to do so, we’ve relied on a few ladies who have been there, done that—and then shared the results online! So enjoy visiting their blogs and Pinterests and gleaning some ideas for your own Easter celebration.
1. Easter Sunday Dinner by Eat, Drink and Save Money
Hannah, the blogger behind Eat, Drink and Save Money, believes that you can enjoy the nice things in life while saving money. She provides an affordable recipe for roasted vegetables, which will not only save you time and money, but will make for a hearty meal at Easter dinner.
2. Activities for the Kids by House Mix
Kids are a big part of Easter. It’s fun to watch them frantically run around the yard scouting for eggs and gorging on candy (until you catch them and promptly put a stop to it). Blogger, Kate, of House Mix, wrote about a creative twist to the standard Easter egg hunt.
3. Decorating Your Home by Being Mrs. McIntosh
One of The Grit and Grace Project’s writers, Lydia McIntosh, shares a post from her own personal blog, Being Mrs. McIntosh, where she shows us how to welcome a bright, fresh spring look into our homes. Check it out to see how you can create your own spring-friendly flower arrangements and banners.
4. Easter Dress by LovelySilvia
Piecing together a bold and bright Easter outfit isn’t easy (lime green, anyone?), but thankfully a blog post by Silvia shows us how it’s possible. Wait until you see how easy and effortless it is to wear a bold yellow and not look like a peep. Easter chic, indeed.
5. What to Gift by The Spruce
Gifting for Easter is tricky. You want to give something reminiscent of the season without handing someone the standard Russell Stover chocolate bunny. The options are limited. But thankfully The Spruce, a website for tips and inspirations for the home, pulled together a list of gifts that can work for either kids or adults. And if you have that one chocoholic in your family, well, just stick with the chocolate bunny.
