Easter Traditions?

When my two children lived far away I told my husband I didn't want to cook a big ham dinner just for the two of us.  That year I made a simple afternoon tea.  He worried that he would have enough to eat,
but on completion he said, "let's make this our new Easter tradition".  So each Easter since then I have
done an afternoon Easter tea.  It actually is alot more work than the ham dinner, but I have fun planning
and completing it, then enjoying sharing with family and friends.  This year there were 10 adults and 2 little girls having tea on Easter afternoon.  There was a small chocolate frog hidden under each persons napkin.  The place cards were tied to little farm animals I had spray painted chocolate brown.
The centerpiece was a chicken feeder with grass, eggs, and little yellow chickies.
And I always love the opportunity to place my grandfathers china on the table.

Do you have a family tradition for Easter and Springtime celebrating?
Tomorrow I will share a peak at the food I prepared.
