With the impending move, the hubs and I decided not to go home to Arizona for Easter this year. It was a tough choice to make, especially since our little nieces are still at that “looks adorable in puff sleeves and butt bows”/”Easter egg hunts are so much fun” age.
It will be sad missing our families this year, but part of getting married and moving to a far away city on your own, is creating your own familial bonds and traditions. So what’s a lonely, child-less couple to do, with no family to celebrate Easter with? Wouldn’t you like to know…
Whether dining out, or entertaining a small group at your home, it just isn’t Easter without the brunch. This year, I’m hosting an orphan Easter potluck brunch for fellow child-less, family-less couples to commiserate with over bottomless mimosas. The table will be set with my fine china (reserved for such occassions) and fresh spring flowers. Since everyone else will be bringing food to share, I’ve only committed to 2 dishes: Overnight Maple French Toast and Eggs Vermouth, both of which are easy to prepare, and perfect for large groups.
- 2 measures Lillet (red or white)
- 1 measure gin
- 2 measures fresh grapefruit juice
Added bonus: the delicious cocktail will totally get you primed for #3!
3. SEXY EASTER EGG HUNT
Now we’re getting to the good stuff! We all know our hubs are little boys at heart, so why not bring back his favorite Easter pastime! This year I’ll be taking a cue from The Nest, and the hubs and I will hide our own eggs around the apartment. Except our eggs will be filled with a different kind of treat…wink. His and hers bunny ears optional (though highly recommended).
