Easter is a time for family, so why not consider an Easter Dinner Party.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Ms Blaelock’s Book of Stress Free Dinner Parties, says “if you have a close and loving family, why not make this Easter special with an Easter Dinner Party?”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for an Easter Dinner Party.
- Wait until after Lent: If your family is Christian, you may prefer to wait until after Lent; the traditional time of fasting and self-denial.
- Offer traditional menu items: Your guests will expect tradition, so don’t disappoint them. Some of these will be family (e.g., lamb roast), some will have religious significance (e.g., hot cross buns), and some cultural (e.g., Easter bread).
- Think local produce: For our friends in the Northern hemisphere, you’re looking at spring produce, for those in the Southerm, Autumnal offerings.
- Think fresh: Where possible, fresh fruit and vegetables, or fresh caught fish will almost always taste better, and require less cooking, than tinned or otherwise preserved.
- Where possible, prepare ahead: Get as much of the food made, or at least on the go before your guests start arriving. So you can enjoy your dinner as well.
In most cases, an Easter Dinner Party comes with a ready-made menu, so why not take advatage of that and leave yourself time to stay relaxed and enjoy your dinner party too.
