Holding an Easter Family Party


by Allison Mueller

The Easter Holiday is one of those times of the year that's ideal for a family get-together. However, if you're like most people I know, you don't look forward to an Easter get-together if you're responsible for hosting everyone. Throwing a family event can be an intimidating job, especially when it involves the whole family, from near and far. You can't be blamed for being anxious! Certain tasks will suddenly come to mind: I must clean! How should I decorate? And, most importantly, what should we eat? Cooking the right meal for your guests can make or break your Easter get-together, so here are a few new ideas to help make a memorable event out of your Easter gathering.

To get started, remember that it is important to have a good supply of hors d'oeuvres to prime your guests' appetites as you play hostess and greet everyone at the door. However, picking the right appetizers can be difficult. You'll want to make sure that there is a variety of goodies for everyone. Don't worry, there are several ideas that never go out of style such as a shrimp platter, crackers and dip, and an assortment of meats and cheeses. To really wow your guests, you might try putting together a beautiful platter of spring fruits and vegetables. Easter time is a great time to get some of the freshest fruits and veggies of the season. And what's Easter without eggs? Great Easter hors d'oeuvres include multi-colored easter eggs and egg souffle. But don't stop there. Put together some deviled eggs and you will be sure to please your guests.

Once you've planned out the appetizers, you'll have to start thinking about Easter dinner. This can be challenging because there is no clear cut Easter dinner like at Thanksgiving or Christmas parties. However, this also means you can get creative with your main meal. With no established tradition, you can whip up a personal Easter recipe. My family has chosen the Easter ham for our Easter tradition. You should also feel free to experiment! There are hundreds of things you can do with chicken for a perfect Easter feast. You might even consider making one of your own favorite meals. Are you genius when it comes to making steak? Make it! The main course of your Easter dinner gives you the opportunity to be creative and serve your guests a memorable meal.

Congratulations, you've made it through dinner. However, you must end the dinner with finesse so that your family will go home raving about your Easter party. This brings us to the dessert: it has to be something special so that your meal can end on a high note. For this reason I suggest you choose turtle cheesecake. In fact, cheesecake is one of the most popular desserts, no matter what you're celebrating. Whether homemade or store bought, cheesecakes are a delicious way to end any meal. They come in dozens of different flavors like chocolate, turtle, strawberry, and of course, classic style. Get a sampler set to ensure that there's a flavor for everyone. To make this step as easy as possible, order your cheesecakes online and have them delivered right to your home!

Planning your Easter party doesn't have to be an overwhelming chore. Easter should be an opportunity to spend time with your family as well as put your great hosting skills to work. As long as your Easter is packed with tasty treats and family fun, you and your family should have a memorable holiday.
