2. Easter Brunch
When it comes to hosting the perfect brunch on Easter morning, variety is key. To create a balance between sweet and savoury options, you can include classic brunch items like quiches, tarts, and breakfast sausages, along with freshly cut fruits and refreshing beverages to cater to everyone's taste buds.
And no brunch is complete without a variety of tasty sweets on the table. Indulge in a mixed box of rocky road, packed with gooey marshmallows and rich chocolate! Brunch is an excellent way to create a relaxed gathering among friends and family. Unlike a formal meal setting, brunch has a laid-back atmosphere that allows everyone to catch up at a leisurely pace. It's also an inviting opportunity to get creative with spring pastels and add pops of colour to your table with fresh flowers that signify the arrival of Spring.
3. Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt
Easter egg hunts are one of the traditional ways to celebrate the holiday, but you may be looking for a more creative spin, especially as your little ones get older. One unique way to make your Easter egg hunt ideas more exciting is to create a scavenger hunt, complete with clues that lead to a special prize. This activity is perfect for kids and adults looking for a fun and challenging Easter activity and can be a fun way to celebrate Easter at home.
To start, choose a prize the participants will be excited to win, such as a gift card, a basket of Easter goodies, or even an assorted brownie and cookie selection box. Then, create clues or riddles that will lead participants to different locations where they can find the next clue. The clues can be as simple or as complex as you like, depending on the age and skill level of the participants.
To add an extra level of excitement, consider making the scavenger hunt a race to see who can find all the clues and the special prize first. This will add an element of competition and make your Easter activities even more engaging.
4. Easter Dinner Desserts
Similar to Christmas dinner, Easter dinners are a classic tradition and a great way to spend time with family. Although hosting an Easter dinner can feel like a daunting task, breaking your tasks down into smaller, more manageable duties will help.
Begin by planning your menu ahead of time. Consider the number of people you're inviting, and be sure to plan appropriately. Think about your recipes and whether you want to include traditional Easter foods such as ham, lamb, carrot cake, and hot cross buns. This will help you create a grocery list and ensure you have all the ingredients you need.
When deciding on decorations, choose bright, pastel-coloured tablecloths and napkins that reflect the festive nature of the holiday. Get creative with centrepieces and incorporate fresh flowers if possible.
After enjoying a delicious Easter dinner, it's time for dessert, and there are many options to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you're looking for something traditional with indulgent flavour try our chewy and delicious postal blondies. Consider serving a spread of desserts, such as a cake that is shaped to look like a bunny or a box of our bestselling brownies to cater to different tastes.
By following these tips, you can host a memorable Easter dinner that everyone will enjoy. Remember to focus on spending quality time with your loved ones and celebrating the holiday together.
5. Host an Egg Colouring Party
Hosting a gathering to dye Easter eggs is an excellent way to celebrate Easter with family and friends. However, it is important to prepare the space before your guests arrive. To ensure a successful party, start by covering work surfaces with newspaper or plastic to prevent stains. If you have the space, and the weather is warm, consider hosting the get-together. This will provide a larger space for your guests to work and allow for easy cleanup.
When making your shopping list, be sure to purchase enough supplies for everyone you invite, and consider that everyone may want to dye multiple Easter eggs. You can purchase egg dye kits, food colouring, vinegar, and other supplies needed for egg dyeing. You can also provide stickers, markers, and other decorations for the eggs.
To keep your guests happy and fueled up while dyeing Easter eggs, serve your favourite Easter snacks and refreshments that are easy to eat, such as cookie delivery, cupcakes, and juice or lemonade. Consider playing music or having fun games, doing puzzles, or having sidewalk chalk on hand to keep everyone entertained. This will help ensure a fun and memorable egg dye party for everyone involved!
6. How to Celebrate Easter at Home
While Easter Sunday is often a holiday for social gatherings, not everyone has the opportunity to attend one or be close to family. In such cases, it's still important to give yourself a treat and enjoy the day. What better way to do so than by indulging in the scrumptious treats from our bakery? We offer a wide variety of options, whether you're in the mood for something light or extra-indulgent. Take a moment to relax with one of our chocolatey bronuts or a delicious white chocolate and raspberry cookie.
After you’ve had your fill of sweets, there are plenty of other festive activities you can fill your day with. For example, if you enjoy art, you can take part in some Easter Bunny-themed crafts, an Easter egg tree, or DIY decorations to welcome Spring. No matter how you choose to celebrate Easter at home, our Chummys Bakery has plenty of options that will make your day a little sweeter.
7. Attend Local Easter Events
It's a holiday full of fun Easter traditions, and attending a local Easter event or a retelling of the Easter story can be a unique way to celebrate the season. Some cities hold annual Easter parades, featuring colourful floats providing a refreshing opportunity to enjoy time outside, taking in the sights with friends and family. Similarly, some communities host theatrical performances that recreate the story of Easter, giving you an immersive experience that reminds us of the holiday's significance.
Another popular Easter tradition is attending a sunrise Easter service. As the name suggests, these church services take place at sunrise on Easter Sunday. No matter which local Easter event you choose to partake in, adding these traditions to your Easter celebration can make the day even more memorable.
8. Bake up something festive
Holidays are the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen and whip up something delicious! You can go for classic options like bunny and egg-shaped cakes, hot cross buns, and lemon cheesecakes. You can also incorporate some of your favourite treats from Chummys to make stunning desserts like chocolate trifles and brownie truffles.
Since Easter is a holiday rich in tradition, it's also a great chance to learn about how different cultures celebrate this special time of year. So, why not take the opportunity to explore other Easter customs while you're baking up your family's favourite recipes? It's a great way to expand your knowledge, try out new things, and improve your cooking skills. Who knows, you might even discover a new recipe that becomes a new Easter tradition in your family!
9. Watch an Easter themed Movie
Enjoying an Easter-themed movie can be a great way to relax and unwind during the holiday season. Whether you're spending Easter by yourself or with a big group of loved ones, a movie can provide a low-key activity to celebrate the day. If you're looking for a religious movie that recounts the story of Easter, there are plenty of options available, as well as a wide range of lighthearted animated films. Movies like “Hop” and “Peter Rabbit” are fantastic options that can get the entire family excited about the holiday. Plus, watching a movie with loved ones is always a good way to spend quality time together. Just don’t forget the snacks!
Be sure to embrace the spirit of the season
Easter is a time when people come together to celebrate the season of renewal and new beginnings. The holiday is marked by a range of traditions and customs, including attending religious services, decorating Easter eggs, and sharing festive meals with friends and family. One of the most important aspects of Easter is the sense of togetherness and community that it fosters. Whether you’re taking part in rituals involving the Easter Bunny and hiding eggs, or taking the time to enjoy a local event with your family, remember to reflect on the beauty and wonder of nature and appreciate the simple pleasures of life.
Ultimately, the key to a successful Easter celebration is to embrace the spirit of the season and to enjoy the company of those around you. Whether you are hosting a big gathering or enjoying a quiet day at home with cookies and brownies delivered to your door, take the time to savour every moment. By doing so, you can create lasting memories and build stronger connections with the people you love.
