You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade.” It's reminiscent of days when ladies strolled the streets in fancy hats and elegant gowns. Why not recreate this era by having guest decorate their own Easter bonnet. Buy some straw hats, silk flowers, ribbons and little plastic birds and challenge each lady to build the most beautiful, extravagant, or outrageous bonnet. You can even have a parade to show off all the original creations. Will there be men at your party also? No problem. The next lines of the song are: “I'll be all in clover, and when they look you over I'll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.” Gentlemen can join the parade and escort their ladies to dinner, or even act as judges.
