Does anyone else love Easter brunch as much as I do? In my family, most of the holidays we celebrate are centered around dinner. Easter is the one holiday a year I get to indulge in all the French toast, bacon, and mimosas I desire! Recently, I have been hosting an annual Easter brunch for visiting family, and I have picked up some tips and tricks over the years. Here are my four simple Easter brunch essentials to help you host the perfect get-together: 

1. A springtime table setting.

Impress your guests and include a delicate springtime setup on your brunch table! This setup does not have to be complicated. A bouquet of springtime flowers, such as tulips or daisies, will look stunning in a vase amongst pastel plates and servers. Many of our items from the Decocrated Spring 2022 box will look splendid on your Easter table. In this setting, I incorporated the table runner, ceramic birds, pedestal, glass vase, and faux lamb’s ear stems. I also used the wooden tray from the Winter 2022 box to serve pancakes!

2. A pastel color palette.

What says springtime more than dusty pinks, baby blues, or sunshine yellows? You can incorporate these colors into your plates, napkins, and servers. For this setting, I used light blue paints and a fun easter napkin print. If you are feeling more creative, a splash of color can be added using pastel-colored plastic eggs, or you can make your own colored deviled eggs for the table. 

3. A brunch variety.

A key part of Easter Sunday brunch is making sure that there is something for everyone on the table! Be sure you have a variety of brunch items available for your guests. I like to serve an egg-based dish like quiche for my guests, as well as a plant-based option such as vegan pancakes and fruit salad. Looking for some recipe inspiration?

4. Brunch cocktails.

Last, but definitely not least, are brunch cocktails! Mimosas are usually the first requests I receive for the Easter brunch menu. You can keep it simple with orange juice, champagne, and fruit, or you can impress your guests with one of these more intricate mimosa recipes. Are your family and friends not huge mimosa fans?

I hope these Easter brunch essentials help you prepare for sharing a wonderful meal with your family and friends this holiday!
