Easter morning can be very busy and the idea of planning and orchestrating a lunch can send you over the edge. Well, don’t feel like you have to do it all by yourself, you have help! Below are some tips to help you plan the perfect Easter lunch.
- Plan your Lunch: Sit down and take a few moments to decide how you want to plan your Easter lunch. Will there be hors d’oeuvres/finger foods? Do you want formal entrées or will there just be side dishes served at the same time as the main? Do you want one or more salads or cooked vegetable dishes? Will there be dessert? After you layout your lunch you can begin to divide and conquer. It’s your responsibility to prepare the entrée and then ask your family and friends to handle the rest.
- Invitations: Send out your invitations via email to your family and friends for a quick response. Websites like Evite and Paperless Post make it fun and easy to send the perfect pastel invitation. Your invitation should include a note of participation in preparing the meal. When you find out whose attending dole out the rest of the dishes needed to make the perfect Easter lunch.
- Easter Table Decorations: When planning your table decorations for your Easter lunch think light pastel colors that are associated with fun of spring.
