An Elegantly Easy Easter Dinner Menu

An Elegantly Easy Easter Dinner Menu

Every Easter dinner is a little different, and that’s what makes this holiday so much fun. You don’t need to stick to a traditional menu. Pretty much anything is up for grabs, just as long as you include some eggs in there and a filling main dish, like ham or lamb.

Presentation Pointers:

  1. If you’re still preparing dinner when your guests arrive, have an Easter egg hunt for the children so they won’t be bored. Hide plastic eggs in the backyard, and stuff them with little pieces of candy to keep them occupied.
  2. Whether your dinner is extremely traditional or very modern, make sure to decorate in the typical Easter pastel colors. Shades like lavender and mint green give off a peaceful vibe, and help to put everyone in a pleasant mood.
  3. Easter is one of those holidays where the weather is pretty unpredictable. If you’re planning on having your dinner party in the backyard, rent a tent just in case the weather doesn’t cooperate or have an indoor back-up plan.
