Simply Perfect Easter Traditions

Easter egg hunts can trace their origins to a medieval practice where the priest of a parish would give the choir boys a hard boiled egg a little before midnight. The egg would be passed around like a game of hot potato until midnight, the start of Easter Sunday. The boy holding the egg would win. The egg itself was a prized midnight snack he could enjoy before mass.

Thankfully, these days hard boiled eggs are more likely to grace an Easter brunch table than be given as a gift or prize. If you do need a little something for the holidays, Simply Perfect Gifts & Decor has a brand new selection of items. Whether you need something to fill an Easter basket, to decorate your table or give as a hostess gift, you're likely to find it here.

If you are interested in a modern egg game for your Easter celebration, may we recommend our family tradition of egg dueling. We paint our hard-boiled eggs and then pair up. Eggs are first hit nose to nose then you trade partners and hit the eggs end to end. When both sides are cracked you are out of the game. The last person with an uncracked side wins and gets first pick from the egg platter. We like to portion the eggs and put them on thick slices of salami. Want to give it a try? Be sure to grab a new platter for your salami and eggs. We have some lovely live-edge trays and others with sayings like, "Make Happiness a Habit" that are simply perfect for your new annual tradition.
