Every culture and family have different traditions for celebrating Easter. I want to make the most that I can to have a perfect holiday, trying to bond with family and friends, and also, to make everyone happy and satisfied. I try to make tasty food, decorate the home, set the table with Easter decorations, etc.
This is my shopping list with all the essentials for celebrating Easter. I hope it will be of great help to you to have a perfect celebration this year.
This item is the most important thing you need for this Holiday. Purchasing good quality colors is essential, so the eggs will look good, even if you don’t continue with extra decorating.
There a lot’s of painting kits for decorating eggs, so that you can include your children in all the work. It will be fun for every member of the family. Also, you can organize egg dying and painting party with friends so you can make this holiday to be a fun way to bond with everyone.
After dying and decorating the eggs, put them in beautiful baskets, filled with artificial grass filler (or you can grow your own grass by sprouting wheat seeds).
Chocolate Bunnies and Eggs
What’s Easter without chocolate eggs and bunnies? I just love them. This year I’m very ambitious, and I will try to make homemade chocolate eggs and bunnies. I have polycarbonate molds, and I already bought three types of couverture chocolate for tempering: dark, white and ruby. If they turn out ok, I will gladly share the process of making them with you.
Easter Home/Garden Decorations
Few weeks before Easter, I decorate my home with spring and Easter themed stuffs, like pillows, little rabbit ornaments, garden decorations, etc., and keep them until the summer starts.
I have themed mugs for every occasion: Christmas, Valentine, birthday, spring, summer, autumn, motherhood, etc. Some of them are handmade (I use special colors for ceramics), some are store brought. Easter mugs can be fun to make at home; there are endless designs you can draw and paint. But if you’re not that into handmade crafts, or if you’re don’t have time for such activities, it’s best to buy few already decorated mugs, and enjoy your morning coffee or tea.
Easter Table Decor
For the Easter Sunday Lunch, the whole family is gathered, and traditionally we cook lamb every year. I want to give accent to the table decor; I put Easter or Spring themed tablecloth, use Easter themed plates and napkins. Also, I put some decorations, like small baskets with eggs, flowers, bunny shaped napkin holder, bunny shaped salt&pepper shakers, and everything else that is suitable for the occasion.
Easter Clothes and J
I’m all into holidays, so buying themed Easter clothes sounds like an enjoyable thing to do, especially if you have kids. There are lots of choices on internet stores, for an adult and children sizes too.
For me, as a woman, I think it is inevitable to have some piece of jewelry for this holiday. Necklace and earrings in a bunny shape are my favorite.
Easter Children Books
You can buy thousands of Easter children books with wonderful illustrations the kids will love. Make your kids happy, read to them Easter books this time of the year. It will be fun for you too.
