Easter is one of those holiday weekends that seem to fly by. From decorating eggs to the Easter egg hunt and brunch, things get hectic and a little planning can go a long way. If you’re one of the fortunate ones to have Good Friday off, use the extra time to your advantage. Consider boiling eggs that morning while the kids are still asleep, then refrigerate the eggs so they’re ready to decorate that afternoon or evening. If you work on Good Friday, then boil eggs Thursday night.
Friday afternoon is the ideal time to tidy up the house and do any last minute cleaning. This keeps Saturday open for prepping Jell-O salads, casseroles, side dishes and desserts for brunch or Easter dinner. With this cooking done, you can turn your attention to setting your dining and buffet tables. Iron the tablecloths and napkins, polish the silverware and glasses and set out the candles.
Sunday morning it’s egg hunting time, church and then let the Easter celebration begin. Easter is much more enjoyable when you plan ahead.
