While the official start of spring has long past, I always feel Easter is confirmation that old man winter is falling asleep and mother nature is cuing the outdoors to bloom. It’s the first time in the new year to break out the pastels (while packing away the snow pants) and get into the daffodil state of mind. Who doesn’t appreciate a day covered in cute bunnies?
I love a holiday and Easter is no exception. Always a mix of family and friends, it’s fun to blend old traditions (aunt Arlene’s famous deviled egg) with the current trends of the season. Whether you are hosting a buffeted brunch or a sit down dinner it can be overwhelming to pull together your table setting, serving dishes and decor.
Regardless of your guest list or traditions, however, these must-haves below will guarantee a seamless Easter that makes everyone want to do the bunny hop (even Aunt Arlene!). Here we’ve rounded up 15 products—some bunny-adorned, some just too darn beautiful not to include—that will make your Easter celebration pretty as a picture.
