Easter can be an exciting holiday for everyone. It’s the ultimate symbol of the Spring season and a time of rebirth. Although celebrating Easter can be a lot of fun, preparation for this joyous holiday can also be overwhelming!
As a new mom (many years ago) I wanted to attack the holiday from all angles. My eagerness stemmed from the excitement of having my very own children. Over the years, I’ve learned to focus on what really matters. The small details will come together once you concentrate on the priority of the day.
Easter Celebration Tips:
- Create your dinner menu – Decide whether your family will dine in or out. Either option provides a good opportunity for quality fellowship. Traditional Easter meals (if you’re cooking) include a honey glazed ham, roasted leg of lamb, baked salmon, green bean casserole, rice pilaf, scalloped potatoes, macaroni and cheese, or home-style dinner rolls.
- Coordinate Easter crafts with the kids – This particular tip can vary depending on your interest but the idea is to teach your family the meaning of Easter. Quick holiday crafts include decorating eggs, planting a Spring garden, or designing Easter bookmarks.
- Consider taking Easter photos – Start thinking of the right location, lighting, and even the weather. Also, we can’t forget to coordinate the perfect attire whether a traditional suit or casual spring outfit.
- Decorate, Decorate, Decorate – Nothing brings more excitement than putting out spring decorations. Add a wreath to the front door, create a tablescape, or flower arrangement in the hallway.
Some of my favorite Easter traditions include Sunday morning worship, egg hunt, brunch, and spring photos. What are some of your favorite Easter traditions, share them with us here?
