In my childhood, we wore fancy clothes on Easter Sunday, and hats!

My mom purchased plain hats and then we would go to the craft store and buy ribbons and silk flowers to add to the brim. Our own custom Easter bonnet every year, and easy to do with some hot glue.

This tradition seems to be out of style now. I understand there is still an Easter parade in New York City, but it’s more of a “wacky” fashion show. Let’s bring the vintage back…unless wacky and outrageous is more appealing to you, and then by all means, have at it. Yes, I know there will not be parades this year. I know that church is cancelled. But I encourage normalcy anyway and you can still dress up for your church’s Zoom meetings, for Instagram, for social media.

Plan your Easter Sunday outfit and hat and get started on whatever handmade elements there will be.
