Create Unique Flower Arrangements. Take advantage of Easter’s springtime festivities with fresh blooms in small, petite vases made from egg shells.
Brunch Buffet. One of my fondest childhood memories about Easter Sunday is of our family gathered with my aunt and cousins all day. We started at church and then headed to our house for games and food.
My mom and aunt would cook while the kids played, did crafts, enjoyed the Easter baskets (treats and games), and watched traditional Easter Sunday cartoons. We have 3 appetizer recipes that are great for Easter brunch.
Make Easter Baskets. Instead of having Easter baskets at the ready, corral adults and children alike to create fun, festive baskets for a lovely afternoon—rain or shine.
