Easter is on Sunday March 27th this year… just 6 little week away! Easter always falls between March 22 and April 25. So, this year Easter is on the “early” side! I love celebrating Easter. Its true meaning is most important for me and I’ll be talking about that in my Sunday Scriptures each week from now until Easter morning! But if you are like me, I also love to decorate in small ways to celebrate this special early spring day. It’s also a great idea to plan a pretty Easter table and a tasty brunch menu early too. Easter morning at our home is quite a celebration! Let’s get a head start on Easter this year! Here are 7 things you can do now to be ready for Easter!
Our family gives a big nod to our Hungarian roots every Easter by making BEAUTIFUL and unusual onion skin eggs. We start saving the papery orange skin of the onions, just about this time, until the week before Easter. Then we make ONION SKIN DYED EASTER EGGS. These are not your ordinary dyed eggs! The are upscale and stunning and rich with varied hues of orange and even a little sophisticated! If they appear on your table at Easter they will be the topic of conversation!
This is the time when most of us are craving to dig in the dirt! Well, maybe some of us! And I really start wanting my herb garden and all the beauty and freshness it brings! Creating a kitchen herb garden in a basket is so so easy and will give us a head start on planting herbs outside! I made kitchen herb gardens and gave them as Easter baskets! Create a basket to use on Easter morning! YUM!
