Mouth-watering menus
Devilled eggs (that you can dye naturally or with food colouring!), quiche and frittatas are just some ideas. If you prefer sweet over savoury, go for gooey cinnamon rolls, stuffed French toast or a decadent carrot cake. Shop this Amadeus sweet treat.

Put Together a Fun Easter Basket
Whether you’re using your basket for an Easter egg hunt or giving it as a gift. Here’s how to make yours extra special.

DIY darlings
Have some DIY fun by dressing up your basket with bows, gluing on bunny ears or embellishing it with pom-poms. You can even upgrade a plain basket with a splash of paint. Find these baskets and more at Dollarama.

Basket full of surprises

Celebrate with Makeup
Candy is great but pastel-inspired makeup and manicures are the perfect way to ring in spring.

Painted perfection
Go for a multi-coloured mani that channels spring’s pastel palette. Or, choose one nail polish shade and jazz it up with polka dots using a dotting tool or stickers. Shop this H&M Lemon Parfait nail polish.

Pretty Pastels
Play up your lids in a wash of pastel eyeshadow and pair it with a matching lip for a monochromatic look. You can even try a two-toned look by combining a teal eyeliner and purple eyeshadow. Shop this HUDA beauty pastel nail polish set.
