Spend more time with your family and less time in the kitchen this Easter.

Tip #1: Be Prepared
It’s never too early to start preparing so that you aren’t left in the last minute time crunch juggling a million to dos. Order extra tables, chairs, serving ware, plates, etc in advance. Make a list of all the items you will need and buy them over the weeks leading up to your event. In preparation for Easter, you may want chocolates, festive napkins and decorations.

Tip #2: Ask for help and delegate
Especially if you are hosting family and close friends, don’t be afraid to ask for a little help. Giving every guest something to bring or help with in advance will save you time and stress. More often than not, guests are more than happy to contribute.

Tip #3: Make an easy family friendly drink
Serving a themed drink will help make your life a little easier on party day. You won’t need to stock the entire bar with different pops, juices and alcohol. Make a pitcher or two in advance so guests can serve themselves. A themed drink can also be something memorable for your guests to enjoy. In the spirit of Easter and spring why not try a Fruity Agua Fresca.

Blend up a few cups of your favourite fruit. Berries, watermelon and pineapple work great. Stir in a few tablespoons of honey for sweetness. Add 1 litre of water for every cup of fruit. Garnish with easter themed straws or candy.

Tip #4: Keep the kids active
Prepare a couple of craft activities for the kids to keep them occupied. Painting Easter Eggs or an Easter Egg hunt are great for this holiday. Print off some colouring stencils of Easter themes and have markers or crayons at the ready to keep the kids busy at the table.
