Easter is Sunday, April 4. Will you be hosting family and friends at your home?
Easter brunch after church or an early morning egg hunt is a wonderful way to enjoy a meal and quality family time without too much of the stress that comes with other holidays. Below are just a few tips for all of you soon-to-be hosts and hostesses: this list will make sure your table is set for a beautiful, relaxing brunch your family and friends are sure to remember.
Send a sweet, retro style invitation.
Sure, a text will do when it comes to sending out invitations, but how nice is it to receive a real, old-fashioned card in the mail? This sweet, retro one can be customized to include the details you want, or you can leave it blank to write a handwritten note yourself.
Place fresh-picked arrangements in the dining room and entryway.
Showcase Easter flavors across your menu.
Dishes that feature eggs and carrots or other ingredients that bring spring to mind will be a perfect complement to the theme of the day.
Here’s a few recipes we’re eyeing for our own Easter table:
And finish off the meal serving these adorable easter egg cake pops from Harry & David!
Set a spring scene at your dining room table.
While Easter probably means neon plastic eggs for the kids, there are plenty of ways to elevate your table decor for the adults, too. Focus on pastels, natural greens and fibers like linen, cotton, or jute.
Whatever the size of your table, be sure to add a few festive touches:
For example, try making a cozy Easter “nest” in our beautiful Santa Fe bowl. Start with a layer of dried green moss and then add home-dyed eggs, patina-ed terra cotta bunnies, and finish with a pop of color from dried florals (like these sunny Billy Button Craspedias).
Welcome everyone to your table with a personalized place setting.
Nothing makes people feel more welcome than seeing that you’ve prepared a spot just for them at the table. We love these mini boxwood wreath name cards. They are a perfect mix of casual and personal while still making your brunch table feel elegant.
When it comes to tableware, try pairing old and new. Dust off your heirloom china pieces for classy dessert plates but pair with crisp, everyday white dishes to keep your table from feeling too stuffy.
If you want something new for the occasion, we love these pink, floral engraved goblets that, at the same time, feel vintage and very on-trend.
