Cherished traditions are what keep a family together. Easter is a wonderful time to celebrate family, create lifelong memories, and build on those traditions.
The DeCarlo’s Banquet staff want to share a few fun ways for your family to start and carry on some special family times for many years to come. Of course, we’ve included Easter brunch since since holidays usually include a feast!
1. Plant an Easter Garden
After a long Michigan Winter, we welcome Easter as it represents the arrival of Spring. There’s no better way to brighten your yard with an array of blooming plants. Consider pansies, tulips, marigolds, and petunias.
2. Decorate an Easter Egg Tree
Make a trip to the craft or dollar store and purchase some plastic eggs and decorations. This is a fun activity and allows the kids to get creative. Attach a matching colored ribbon to each egg and hang them from a live or artificial tree.
3. Journey to Easter through Scripture
Easter is a deeply religious holiday for many, packed with significance in the resurrection of Christ. Research related scripture that can be shared throughout the weeks leading up to the holiday that tell the story of Easter.
4. Decorate Easter Eggs
A tried and true tradition! Dipping eggs in a brightly colored dye and watching it take hold is a delightful experience for kids of all ages. Decorate with glitter, paint, and stickers and use them to decorate the house or Easter baskets. If you want to up the ante, plan an Easter egg decorating competition, complete with prizes, in your neighborhood!
Put an apron on and break out the mixing bowls! Bunny, chick or egg-shaped cookies are perfect shapes to bake and decorate for this holiday.
5. Going Out For Easter Brunch
Many families start a tradition of going out to Easter brunch or dinner. Building up an appetite for a feast of all your finest favorites is one of the highlights of the day.
DeCarlo’s Banquet Center has a fine selection of your favorite foods on our Easter brunch menu. We offer a vast assortment of breakfast items including eggs, bacon, French toast and hash browns. There are also an abundance of fresh fruit, salads and sides along with pastas, chicken, fish, ham and beef entrees.
Oh and did we mention, the Easter bunny? He will be here greeting all with a big smile and special surprises!
