Easter With Chris

Entertaining isn’t my forte. Entertaining is usually me inviting people over then getting everyone to introduce themselves while I fall asleep in my bed or completely forgetting about any plans I’ve made & going off to do other things while I leave my place attended with a bunch of people that don’t live there. I’m just as good at entertaining as I am with organising. Terrible.

 

So I guess it’s kinda lucky I have like, no friends.

 

This year, I decided to make an effort for Easter because as I child, we always got to enjoy fun Easter gatherings & I want my son to enjoy those same things.

 

& I discovered, it’s not that difficult. Especially when you have no friends to introduce to each other & a bunch of delicious dips which takes the effort out of everything. I mean, if I can put this spread together, then it’s really just a testament to how easy it is.

An Aussie Easter

I haven’t ever celebrated Easter in another country that really celebrates it but I can imagine that it would be different since most of the world, it’s during the Spring.

 

But it’s Autumn here & we’re in Australia so I went with a rustic Aussie theme. It was made really easy with the terracotta pots the Chris’ Dips Heritage range come in.

 

It’s good to know they’re reusable too. I’m planning to grow herbs in these pots when the dips are finished (which shouldn’t take long at all) & sit them along my window sill but there’s a bunch of ideas on how to reuse the terracotta pots on the Eat Love Share website.

 

Not enough? There’s also a Heritage range of desserts too!

Full Of Flavour

If you can’t tell from all the photos (&by looking into my fridge & seeing the gaping hole I’ve made in the dip pot), my favourite flavour of the Chris’ Dips Heritage range is the goats’s cheese & black truffle. It’s so creamy & I think I could slather it on anything.

 

The other flavours are pretty damn amazing too & they all make perfect entertaining dips because of their luxe flavours & the cute pots they come in which basically takes half of the work of putting together a spread.

Eat, Love, Share This Easter

For this Aussie Easter entertaining spread, I used a marble board for the centre & worked around it. You can use any board that fits your aesthetic though.

 

I grabbed a bunch of eucalyptus branches from outside & placed them around the board to give it a more rustic Australian feel. Tip: make sure you shake, wash & dry these out before hand. I couldn’t be bothered to do this step & ended up bringing a bunch of bugs inside then spent about 20 minutes screaming & shaking the branches out after my discovery. Ironically, wasting time instead.

 

Place all your antipasto on the board & some around it. I used, baby pickles, olives, cheese (of course!), sun-dried tomatoes, fruit, crackers & breadsticks. You can use whatever you want though.

 

Lindt make these really cute animal chocolate “eggs” for Easter so I placed them in the branches & the Chris’ Dips around the table to go with the whole Aussie theme.

 

Then light some candles & throw a bunch of chocolate eggs around the table because it’s Easter & Easter is all about sharing.

 

& chocolate. But you already knew that.

    I love hosting parties, but unfortnately I don’t have the apartment for it nor do I really have any friends! My Easter was spent with family, aka people who are forced to spend it with me. Lovely set up you have! Seriously, it’s an art, being able to style food!

  • These photos are gorgeous. You set quite a spread! That caramelized onion and cheddar dip sounds amazing. I once tried to make this myself and someone thought it was hummus haha. Kitchen fail.

  • Your photography is incredible! You have a knack for styling food 🙂 That chedder dip looks delicious. I must have a look out for that. Hope you and your friends had a wonderful Easter

  • Wow, what a stunning Easter spread, I really like that you got so into this even though people aren’t arriving to demolish the whole thing hahah…I mean, it’s so pretty I think I would hoard all of it to myself. About the bugs, I’m sorry you had to go through that, I’d be in a state like you too. Oh my, I keep seeing cheese everywhere, and that red wine. Keep them away from me, heheh. Love your creativity, and please stay the way you are! 😀 x

    • Pffttt, like I’d invite people over to eat this when instead, I could have it all to myself.. Actually, my partner & I started eating it halfway through the shoot XD
      You’re welcome to come over to eat cheese & drink wine anytime though x

      • Don’t tempt me! Just you, your partner and not another unknown human being so I can have the majority of the cheese and wine to myself? And stare shyly at your eyeballs? OMG! XD

  • Your spread looks absolutely amazing! I’d invite myself over any day! 😉 And how adorable are those animal eggs?!

    Even though you claim to be bad at hosting, I swear that table set up is something of a work of genius, I’m not a good hostess at all, I generally wallop a dollop of something on a plate and give it to a bemused guest haha.
