No matter how you're celebrating Easter, check out these tips to 'spring' your entertaining to the next level.

TRY YOUR HAND AT EASTER EGG BREAD

Although these egg decorated breads vary from region to region in Italy, the baking of whole eggs into twisted bread is tied to the overall theme of Easter as eggs symbolize new life and new beginnings. One made in Italy is Casatiello - a Neapolitan recipe and one of the most traditional Easter breads. This savoury bread is made with provolone, salami and mortadella...yum!

INVITE SPRING TO YOUR TABLE

Tulips are in season! With their array of beautiful colours, bring some serious spring vibes with a tulip centrepiece at your Easter celebration.

HAVE BOWLS OF EASTER EGGS

Bowls of chocolate eggs are a must for any Easter get-together. They are a super easy way to add festive colours around the house and perfect for guests to graze on before your main meal.

HAVE FUN WITH BUTTER

Butter is a must on any dinner table but this year think about being more festive! Why use a typical stick when you can display lamb shaped butter?! Butter lambs are traditional especially in Polish specialty markets around Easter. Can't find one near you? Start making your own with a simple mould.

COLOUR EASTER EGGS

Have a station where kids and adults alike can let their creativity out. Hard boil a bunch of eggs for everyone or buy dyeable plastic Easter eggs that can be great keepsakes.

ENJOY A PASTEL COCKTAIL

Easter isn't just for the kids. Enjoy a yummy treat (only the adults can have) that really brings the spring colours to the get-together.

EASTER BRUNCH

Holiday's can be hectic and sometimes not everyone can make it to the main mealtime. Try getting together for brunch and have something like this beautiful Russian Kulich - a bread topped with white icing and colourful sugar that is traditionally served for breakfast during Easter time.

HAVE SWEET PLACE SETTINGS

Use chocolate bunnies for place-settings for a cute (and super easy!) way to decorate your table.

PAINT MORE THAN EGGS

What about cookies! Have them pre-iced with white cookie icing and ready to go for guests to create their own master piece...with edible paints of course.

SEND EVERYONE HOME WITH A GOODIE BAG

Whether you have a Easter Egg Hunt or not, send everyone home with a little something. Get festive and maybe make the bag into bunny ears like these ones!
