Rather than a stuffy, sit down dinner, my family celebrates Oestra style. Easter has linkages to the pagan holiday Oestra, which is officially celebrated at the spring equinox. The trappings of Oestra are bunches flowers, dyed eggs, rabbits, and bonfires.
1. Start the Day with a Bouquet
The day starts with fresh flowers. I always put a vase of tulips on the kitchen table the night before so I wake up to the freshness of spring and can enjoy looking at them while I assemble Easter Baskets and cook breakfast. As far as I'm concerned the purpose of the Easter Basket is to give kids something to eat and keep them out from under your feet in the morning. I scoff at traditional Easter Basket filler and instead choose things that the kids can eat in lue of breakfast and lunch.
2. Add Healthy Easter Basket Filler
Coffee Drinks or tea
100% Juice beverage
fresh fruit (kiwi, strawberry, clementine's, grapes, bananas, pears, etc)
