Easter brunch can be a wonderful time to bring together friends and family members for a festive feast. Even if you’re feeling like your wallet has been squeezed to the limit, don’t let the idea of a springtime gathering hop away. These simple ideas will help you focus on the fun without spending lots of cash, but don't forget to check out the deals on everything from Easter dresses for the kids to chocolate bunnies over at the UltimateCoupons' Easter Coupons page!


Use Egg Recipes - According to America’s Egg Farmers, eggs only cost 15 cents apiece, making them one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein. Use these Easter staples to whip up affordable dishes like Baked Eggs and Spinach or Mexican-Style Eggs-in-a-Nest which are available at IncredibleEgg.org.


Decorate with the Shells - Try reserving the shells from the eggs you use in your recipes. You can dye them and create a simple, festive egg garland with help from Martha Stewart. You can also use the eggs to make a nest full of baby birds as a centerpiece.


Get Dressed up for Less - Flowery Easter dresses and shiny new shoes are a must for this holiday. Thankfully Payless Shoes is having an Easter sale through April 4. Pick up flower-embellished sandals and pastel ballet flats for a discounted price.


Get Help from Nature - Spring is blooming all over. Rather than pay for decorations, pick them up for free outside. Find daffodils or Forsythia branches to clip and arrange. You could also use those eggs and a spray painted tree branch to make your own Easter tree, like the one DesignMom.com received last spring.


Make Tissue Paper Flowers - Fill your party space with color and hints of spring using some colorful tissue paper you may already have stuffed in a closet. Use it to make simple flowers or larger pom poms that can suspend from the ceiling. No one will know you spent just minutes and a couple of bucks making these lovely, springy decorations.
