Easter is just around the corner and with it, it brings the first long weekend of the year! With four days off, Easter is the perfect time to entertain at HOME. We’re going to be making the most of the bank holiday weekend with long, lazy lunches, afternoon cocktails and, fingers crossed, alfresco entertaining.
This year, Easter Day will be on Sunday 9th April which means that Friday 7th April (Good Friday) and Monday 10th April (Easter Monday) are bank holidays - here’s to two short work weeks!
First things first, decorating the Easter table. With Easter being at the start of spring, it’s time to welcome in fresh florals, natural hues, pastels, crisp colours, touches of gold and traditional Easter motifs like eggs and rabbits.
Need some help decorating? HOMEtainer Kuofi can teach you the art of sustainable tablescaping. Meaning that you don’t need to go out and buy accessories to decorate, Kuofi will find pieces that you already have in your HOME and garden, like those sunny daffodils sitting on your desk.
Planning a spring soirée? Or want to add a couple of boozy concoctions to your Easter feast? We’ve got you covered with these spring cocktails that are ideal for serving over the bank holiday- Mini Egg martini anyone?
We’ve also got you sorted when it comes to actually making the cocktails too. Rather than spending time in the kitchen muddling, shaking and pouring, leave it up to the professionals! You can hire a mixologist or bartender to come to your HOME and make sure everyone is sipping on their favourite cocktail. It’s also a great way to add a theatrical touch to your event - you know a party is going to be good when they have a bartender!
Whether you just want to host an intimate dinner party, or you’ve invited all your friends over, our HOMEtainer private chefs can take care of your Easter feast. Alongside seasonal spring menus, our private chefs offer everything from Persian organic and seasonal dinners to Venezuelan Gourmand.
And the best part about hiring a private chef for your party? Other than that you can guarantee that the food is going to be excellent? No time spent in the kitchen prepping! That’s always a win!
What to do with four days off? Well if you’re looking for delicious and entertaining foodie Easter experiences, our first recommendation is our Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea hosted by HOMEtainer and Chef, Lara. A unique afternoon for the curious and curiouser, the afternoon tea has all the elegance of a classic afternoon tea but with a pinch of madness! Want to up the game, bring the characters of Alice in Wonderland to life with a Queen of Heart’s actress, a White Rabbit drag performer and a Cheshire Cat contortionist!
Young or old, there’s nothing quite like an Easter egg hunt on Easter day. There's just something about having to find those little brightly coloured foiled eggs that revs up our competitive side! But if you’re looking for other egg-cellent ways to entertain your brood over the Easter holidays, then check out our children’s experiences. You’ll find everything from stilt walkers and superhero training to spa sessions and crazy science experiments. If your little ones are proving to be chocolate fiends this Easter, then they need to try the decadent Willy Wonka experience. It’s two hours of pure chocolate indulgence including decorating chocolate truffles, making edible wallpaper and drinking the ultimate hot chocolate.
