If you’ve been tuning into our daily Midmorning Buzz episodes, you may have heard us speak about the mindset work we’ve committed ourselves to this past year when it comes to entertaining in our homes. With Easter right around the corner, we’ve been channeling the lessons we’ve learned through our work and the deeper purpose of hosting and entertaining to create an Easter Tablescape designed for connection, because at the end of the day what we do here and in our homes is more than just a pretty tablescape. The purpose to set the table should always be centered around love, embracing and connection.
What comes to mind when you think about hosting loved ones in your house? You may be the unfulfilled homemaker if you’re typically rushed, overwhelmed, and spending majority of your time in the kitchen rather than at the table connecting and creating meaningful moments with loved ones. How do we know this? Because we too were once the overwhelmed and busy woman who never got a chance to sit and enjoy the fruits of her labor, or her guests, and left feeling unfulfilled with each goodbye. Through our daily mindset work and #HostfulHacks, we’ve transitioned from the unfilled homemaker to a relaxed and present homemaker that finds joy in making a home that invites connection.

An Un-rushed Celebration
Imagine Easter morning, easing into your day without rushing from one step on the checklist to the next. The table is pre-set, brunch is prepared, and all that is to be tended to is your people and their embrace. Life is not meant to be rushed through and neither should our celebrations.
So we challenge you to ask yourself, “What makes a house feel like a home?” as you prepare for your Easter celebration. While society may tell us a home is curated with perfectly styled shelves, clear of clutter and a Martha-like hostess stewarding her guests, we know from experience it’s the signs of life strung throughout the halls (piles of shoes and well-loved toys), the laughter that bounces through each room (ours included), and the passing of a family-style recipe that we once loved as a child.
A Tablescape Designed for Connection
You maybe wondering, “How does a table create connection? And where do I start?” Have you heard the saying, “Break bread together?” Researchers have studied the idea that you become closer when you sit down and share a meal together. For us, it’s the physical connection that enhances the emotional one. But as we’ve been researching more, we learned it goes beyond physically sitting with one another. Research goes on to say that sharing the same meal with another person and eating the same types of foods, actually connects people and brings them together.
The act of eating the same food as those sitting with you builds trust, cooperation and a closeness like no other.
While preparing for Easter, consider a family-style menu to share with one another. We created an Easter brunch with easy-to-prepare recipes because they can be prepared ahead of time to encourage a day with less time spent in the kitchen and more time with loved ones. Prepare these recipes a day or two before Easter and enjoy with your family for brunch.
We encourage you to set the table this Easter because a set dining table invites your loved ones to connect and build deeper relationships. Using our tablescape formula, we created an Easter Tablescape to help you simplify the process so you can get back to what matters most – your people.
Simply order this tablescape and pre-set the table because you’ll go from the unfulfilled homemaker to the relaxed and present one who can enjoy and embrace her loved ones this Easter. Hap-Bee Hosting!
