Though I’m not from a particularly religious family, nor one that ate meals together growing up, Easter was one of the few times out of the year that we’d get our traditional gathering fix. We’d dress up in florals and pastels and dye easter eggs after going to church with my Grandma. I’d eat chocolate from gift baskets and pretend to eat the couple of recipes she sneaked onto the menu from her 50’s housewife days––pearled onions, mint jelly for the lamb––before I could really stuff myself with mac and cheese. Basically, it was camp. And this year, I’m going all-out.
Incidentally, as my mother and I prepare to co-host our first Easter party since 2019, I’ll also be attending my boyfriend’s family’s Passover seder for the first time. I’ve been scouring the internet for a perfect outfit, an appropriate gift, and some PDFs of a good haggadah to prove that I’m not like other shiksas.
So whether you’re hosting for the holidays, making your debut as a gorgeous gorgeous guest, or just want a reason to eat, drink, and be merry, here’s a moodboard of brands and products that'll make sure your spring holiday season is coming up roses.
While I’m usually more of a hoodie and jeans kind of gal, I relish in the opportunity to adhere to a good theme. Springtime gatherings are a perfect time to go full wildflower with it –– after such a long holiday hiatus, I’m damn near ready to show up dressed like a peep.
