5 Grown-Up Ways to Celebrate Easter

Author: Melody van der Veen / Category: Holidays / Published: April-19-2019

Back when I was a kid and Easter was getting nearer, I would excitedly wait for the day an Easter basket would arrive by our fireplace, the moment when I would be handed loads jelly beans to eat in church, and of course, the afternoon festivities of an Easter egg hunt. As someone who loves tradition, I was reflecting on these fond memories this past week, and felt that it was time to discover some new "grown-up" traditions. Whether you are spending time with family or hosting a large gathering, adding one or more of these ideas into your festivities will be sure to make this holiday even sweeter.

2. Easter Egg Money Hunt

Instead of filling Easter eggs with candy, fill them with cash! Simply grab a group of friends, and determine an equal amount of money that each participant will throw in. Once the eggs are filled and hidden, and after you all have drank a Peeptini, enjoy a fun afternoon searching for gold.

3. Easter Keg

Before the festivities, buy a keg and some pastel paint (you know, the kid's kind that doesn't stain). Rather than decorating the keg beforehand, make it a fun activity: in order to get a drink, you have to add your flair to the Easter Keg with one of the pastel paints. By the end of the day, you'll have a keg that looks like an Easter egg...or just a hodgepodge of wet paint. Either way, it's the thought that counts.

4. Easter Egg Decorating Competition

While you probably consider egg decorating as a kid's activity, don't be steered wrong. When made a competition with the prize of an adult Easter basket, you will no longer feel this way. Embellish your egg with paint, dye, sparkles, and stickers. Trust me, if you win, you won't regret wigging out in the decoration department.

5. Adult Easter Basket

When considering what to add to this Easter basket, remember that either a guy or a girl may receive it. By keeping the gifts neutral, you can ensure that whoever receives the basket will be excited about its contents. So, here are a few ideas:

  • A bottle of wine or high quality liquor
  • Chocolate gift box
  • A succulent plant
  • A candle
  • A gift card to a local restaurant
  • An Amazon gift card
  • An AirBnB gift card
