If you’re hosting Easter dinner this year, there’s a few things you need to know. Hosting Easter dinner can be stressful, complicated, and it adds up pretty quickly financially if you’re hosting a big celebration. However, Easter dinner is the perfect time to get the family together and spend some quality time with each other. Follow these tips for hosting the best Easter dinner this year!
Don’t do it alone
Even though you’re the host, enlisting some help is a great idea. By having some extra hands in the kitchen, you free up a lot of time to spend with your family. You can get twice as much done in the same amount of time and that’s huge! You’ll also be less stressed which helps if you’re forgetful because you’ll have somebody to help pick up the slack just in case!
Don’t sweat the small things
With any big celebration and family get together, you’re bound to experience some hiccups. You might forget something, burn something, or just feel overwhelmed. The important thing is to remember that looking back on this occasion years from now, the small things won’t be what you remember!
Meal plan accordingly
If you know there are lots of vegetarians in your family or lots of people with food allergies, try to plan ahead. Make sure there is something to eat for everyone so nobody has to go hungry for the big Easter dinner. You’ll feel a lot better knowing everyone is taken care of!
Set up an Easter egg hunt
Easter egg hunts are great for the whole family and even if there are no kids around, you can always make an adult themed egg hunt! Instead of candy in the eggs, put money or things like gift certificates for date nights! Having an Easter egg hunt at your Easter dinner can be super fun, and they even make glow in the dark Easter eggs for such occasions! For more ideas on Easter egg hunts check out my post here
Easter desserts are arguably the best part of a great Easter dinner, so make sure to stock up! If you love to bake, this is a great time to showcase your baking skills. If not, maybe other family members would like to showcase their skills and bring a dessert along. Find out what works best for you and make it happen so you can all indulge in some delicious sweets!
