Easter at Home
April 1, 2020
It looks like Easter is going to be celebrated a litte differently this year. But different doesn’t mean it can’t be memorable and fun! In fact, this could be your BEST. EASTER. EVER.
We have some fun ideas to help make the day special for you and your family.
Get Your Easter Baskets
The Easter Bunny doesn’t have to be under quarantine! Visit Willams Sonoma’s website and order a cute bunny basket and fill it with festive sweets and treats! Even teens can participate in the fun with Tyler’s signature Easter tee or an adorable bunny ring from Francescas. Lush also has an Easter-themed basket of bath bombs that goes perfect with a warm bath and celebratory mimosa. No matter the age, baskets of goodies can arrive at your door – from the Easter Bunny or UPS….
Go on an Easter Egg Hunt!
Plastic Easter eggs can still be ordered online or “accidentally” end up in your grocery cart when you’re stocking up on essentials. If you’re not wanting to give your kids more sugar than they’re inevitably eating right now, fill them with something a little different. Coins and dollar bills, gift cards, or even a “coupon” that can be redeemed during your quaran-time at home. “Pick the movie for movie night”, “Dinner to-go at restraurant of your choice”, “Extra hour on electronics” – whatever your little hunters might prefer over mini candy bars and jelly beans.
Bake with your kids!
Order the Peter Rabbit Cookie Kit from Williams Sonoma and whip up an artistry of spring goodies! In the spirit of the holiday, gift the cookies to a neighbor (ding dong ditch, of course) or leave them in your mailbox for your neighborhood postman. Use this opportunity to give thanks to a service worker or let a friend know you’re thinking about them.
Set a Pretty Table
It’s a special day! Give your paper plates a rest and set a jovial table for the occasion. Pick up some dafodils from Trader Joe’s and serve up Easter brunch with an adorable setting from Pottery Barn. Pour yourself a glass of bubbly and toast to surviving another
year day in your home with a set of flutes from ZGallerie.
And speaking of champagne….
Enjoy Easter Dinner
Sure you can order pizza….again. OR throw your family a memorable Easter brunch! You can pick up a ham and other goodies (like champagne for your “mom-mosa”) from Trader Joe’s or if you want to give your kitchen a break, Del Frisco’s Grille is offering a FULL MENU for Easter brunch! Call ahead to reserve your
table to-go bag. Oh, and did we mention it includes complimentary signature deviled eggs??
Get Dressed Up
For ONE day, maybe we can get out of our PJs and put on some fancy attire! You’ll feel better, we promise! Find the perfect Easter dress from stores like Altar’d State and Banana Republic. Have dad get out of his old concert t-shirts and introduce him to the wonderful world of UNTUCKit – where he can look dressy on top and casual around the waist! If anyone resists, maybe let them keep the bunny slippers on as a compromise!
Life looks a little different right now, undoubtedly. It’s important to still find the joy in holiday celebrations and to make the most of it! Be sure to take lots of pictures and make it the most memorable Easter ever.
We can’t wait to see you on our sidewalks again soon!
