Top 5: Ways to Kick Your Easter up a Notch!
Hey Top 5-er’s, and welcome to Spring! This month we are sharing how you can kick your Easter celebration up a notch and some fun ways to get out and celebrate this April, all while supporting your local businesses!
Easter Meals getting dull? Try something new:
If you are having the same meal every year for Easter, why not shake things up a bit, and try a new recipe? A quick google or Pinterest search can really help, as they will provide you with shopping lists and detailed instructions.
If you usually do dinner, why not try a brunch or breakfast instead? This small change can really help breathe some life into an otherwise routine celebration. Plus, mimosas are never a bad idea!
Thinking of really shaking things up, why not try a meatless meal? There are so many vegan or vegetarian options out there that are delicious and can please even the biggest carnivore.
