Today I have got a fun and festive Easter Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake that is perfect for the holiday! Decorated in fun bright colors, the family will enjoy this delicious treat!

Easter is still a time to enjoy and share memories with family. There are many things that a family can do together to celebrate the holiday. 

That includes baking, egg hunts, going to church, Easter Brunches, and so much more. Today I’ve got a gorgeous Easter Lemon Poppyseed Bundt cake recipe that you will absolutely adore.

Before Easter actually arrives, it is nice to prepare for it. Show your love for the holiday by decorating your home and yard for the season. Making crafts and fun Easter memorabilia is a great way to get kids involved.

While a family is still decked out in their shiny new clothes, it is a good time for a family photo. Nothing says, “Welcome to spring” better than a picture. It doesn’t even have to be a professional shoot. Photos are a great way to celebrate and remember special times.

Another popular Easter activity is family dinner. Many people have feasts on this day. Some folks prepare food at home while others go to a relative’s house. It is a great time to get together with family members and eat ham until you pop. Today I’ve got a really great Easter cake for you to make in celebration!

Don’t forget the kids! They love to receive treats from the bunny and prepare for his arrival. This Easter Placemat Activity For Kids is great for them to get excited about the holiday.

One of the best parts of Easter is the egg hunt.  Check out these 10 Easy Ideas For The Best Easter Egg Hunt Ever!
