Easter may look a little different this year, but we can still stay positive and get festive—we might just have to get a little creative! The way we can spend our days keeps changing, which means you’ll need to prepare for a celebration in the comfort of your home. We’ve put together our favorite Easter styles, at home activities, and other ideas to give you some spring inspiration!
What to Wear
Let's start things off with a simple style guide to match our current stay-cation! Just because you're not traveling doesn't mean you need to ditch your traditional Easter attire. Whether or not you have plans, donning a special dress could easily break the monotony of staying home and help you remember your regular morning routine of getting ready. Feel refreshed in these perfect spring dresses! We've even included some comfy basics.
What to Do
Of course, our usual go-to creative outlook is Pinterest! You’ll find hundreds of at-home activities and holiday inspirations all in one place.
Keep the tradition of an Easter egg hunt alive! You may not be able to travel to Grandma's house or join a community scavenger hunt at the park, but this activity is easy to do with just your family in the backyard. Click here for ideas!
Start a New Tradition
Change up how you normally do Easter Bunny baskets, try a new recipe, choose a story or movie to enjoy together every year, or plan your own family photo shoot!
You may not be able to get to a studio or meet up with a professional photographer, but that doesn't mean you need to forego holiday photos this year. Outdoor lighting can do wonders! Find a nice background with flowers and strike a pose. If you're a beginner, you may be surprised by the quality you can get with portrait mode on your phone!
All of these ideas can easily be shared with distant family members via Zoom or FaceTime! Scheduling calls and sending messages during this time is vital in keeping us connected and close.
What to Eat
There's nothing like a secret family recipe to make everyone feel a little closer! Call up your aunt for her famous deviled egg recipe or get some pointers on icing those yummy cinnamon rolls. It's an easy way to keep family traditions alive while the usual get-together is canceled. We also found an amazing pin of Easter Dinner Recipes!
If your new traditions don’t involve a new recipe (or you’re honestly just sick of cooking at this point), then order delivery or curbside pickup to support a local restaurant! Business hours may vary on Sunday, so check online to see who's offering these services during closures. You can enjoy a nice meal without going through the trouble and preparation. Everyone wins!
We hope you have a safe and memorable Easter! Remember the festivities may be a little different this year, but the reason for the season stays the same. Hold your loved ones close and reach out and call those you can't. We hope these ideas inspired you! How will you spend Easter this year? Comment below!
