Food and drinks inspired by silliness
Get totally silly by making your dinner look like dessert and your dessert look like dinner at your April Fool's lunch/dinner celebration. Make a shepherd's pie and color the mash potatoes with food coloring to make it look like icing; or use the recipe link below to make a meatloaf cake, or a spaghetti torte! If that weren't enough, make cupcakes that look like corn on the cob, peas and carrots, pizza, and even spaghetti! Your residents will be delighted to giggles. (You don't have to do it on the 1st, do this event any time in April or the end of March. Or, you could try it any time of year for a twist on dinner night.)
Creative or special ways to promote event:
It's all in the surprise for this one. Print simple fliers with "Fool Banquet" and a giant question mark then the time and the date, or "Fool's Banquet" and a picture of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland (google.com image search). Residents will be so curious they will just have to show up!
