The Spring time is upon us which means bright colors, warmer weather, and a few fun holidays to celebrate, just like that Easter dinner coming up.
If your family celebrates Easter, then you know all about the cherished family time of Easter dinners, the Easter bunny tradition, and fun Easter egg hunts.
Finding yourself hosting the next family dinner? Here’s everything you need to know to host an unforgettable Easter dinner your family will always remember.
How To Host An Unforgettable Easter Dinner
Keeping the holiday alive visually, try to use materials and decorations with Easter or Spring colors.
Using pastel colors (colors with a lighter and softer image) will make your place pop with an Easter vibe.
Specific colors to use are:
Don’t forget to dye your Easter eggs these colors too!
Types of Decorations
What’s a party without any decorations?
With your decorations, finding pieces that include your light pastel colors is a major bonus!
Places that sell Easter decorations will more than likely have items such as
- Bunnies and rabbits
- And flowers
Decorations are what makes the important statement for your guests to get into the party spirit, but don’t go too overboard with the pieces.
Try placing a few egg filled baskets around the place with a few pieces on your shelves or coffee table for guests to enjoy too.
Now for the main event… the food!
When hosting a family-Easter party, everyone is after one thing: the ham (or turkey).
Plan to serve a big piece of meat such as a baked ham or turkey as the main source of protein, with simple sides such as casseroles, green beans, potatoes, macaroni and cheese, or healthy options if your family follows strict diets.
Easter is almost like a simpler Thanksgiving in a sense that both holidays include similar food options.
To make the food list easier, feel free to split the items between your guests so that the whole load doesn’t fall on your shoulders.
A great way to make your table look beautiful and sophisticated at your Easter family dinner is to have gorgeous place settings.
While your food will be taking up the majority of the space, you can still set-up a gorgeous looking table with place mats and nice dinnerware.
Ditch the typical paper plates and plastic cutlery for fine china and stainless steel forks and knives.
This will give your dinner an upscale feel, making your guests feel like they’re at a sacred dinner instead of a backyard cookout.
What would an unforgettable Easter dinner be without some fun?
Once dinner and desert are over, take your family outside for a few rounds of Easter egg hunting!
While this game is primarily geared towards younger kids, don’t hesitate to make the game more “adultish” and hide the eggs in more tougher spots for older folks to find.
Once this game is over, you can also include eggs for other fun games such as egg toss with partners or last-minute dyeing!
