Typically, in the South, Easter consists of going to church (if that’s your thing), eating a fabulous Southern style meal and having an Easter egg hunt for the little ones. What if this your first time spending Easter with your honey? Or, even more stressful, what if this is first time you’re spending Easter with your honey’s family? From outfits to recipes, don’t fret! We’ve got ya covered.
First things first: the outfit. You’ve got a couple of options when it comes to Easter apparel but the biggest rule is keep it simple. Pastel colors with a modest neck and hemline are a must. Think palazzo pants with a simple top or a pastel-colored conservative dress.
Second: make sure you’re not wearing anything too tight or restrictive. Big Southern meals can be overly filling and you want to make sure you’re able to help Little Jimmy reach that egg that’s just a bit out of his reach.
Third: find out whether or not you’ll be eating at a restaurant or having a meal at a family member’s house. If it’s the latter, proper etiquette (which will also earn you a ton of bonus points) says to bring a dish. Not the best cook? Don’t worry. These recipes and suggestions are fail-safe, simple and always a hit.
Pasta salad – this recipe only has 6 ingredients, is very straight forward and simple. Plus, who doesn’t love a good pasta salad?
Thinking dessert? Go for the pre-portioned cookies at the grocery store. The only way you could mess this up is by burning them. Set a timer, put your make up on, and call it a day.
The easiest, and biggest crowd pleaser, would be a bottle of wine or champagne. You simply cannot go wrong here unless maybe you show up with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label. No one likes an Easter drunk.
The biggest thing to remember is to have fun! Be your fabulous self, dress appropriately and enjoy the day.
