This year for Easter, we styled a super pretty floral brunch that's fresh and colorful, but also easy to put together. And you know how much we all love "easy" 'round here! 😉
Hope you love the creative ideas as much as I do, and feel inspired to inject a little floral action into your own Easter or Spring celebrations!
PS - DIYs and brunch recipes coming in the next few days!
A Floral Easter Brunch - Creative Tablescape
For this Easter brunch table decor, I wanted a modern look inspired by flowers. And I also didn't want anything too complicated to style.
I opted for a pink, orange and yellow color palettes punctuated by dashes of gold and green for the fresh touches.
The golden flatware, white plates, bowls with gold rim, vintage tumblers and bright yellow linen napkins helped bring the table color scheme and modern look together.
To finish off each place-setting, a gold Easter egg inside a cute egg shell egg-cup. What's not to love?! 😊
DIY Floral Table Runner Centerpiece
And since I'm into table runners lately (did you see this post?), it was my go-to option for the table centerpiece.
A table runner, yes. But one made with flowers!
This is a cool idea for any Spring celebration, Mother's day or even a wedding! I used silk flowers I already had at home, but you could totally use fresh or a combo of both (my fav floral trick!).
TIP: If using fresh flowers, you can keep them flowers looking fab for longer, by simply stick them into floral foam soaked in water. You can place the foam inside boxes or troughs all along the center of the table and create your display that way.
Full DIY tutorial coming soon!
DIY Grass Place-Mats
for each place setting, we made some faux-grass place-mats to compliment the floral look. It was super easy to make and added that extra touch of freshness to the table decor.
Again, keep an eye out for the DIY tutorial coming here soon!
A Floral Easter Brunch - Food Recipes
Every Easter we serve up some sort of egg dish (frittata, omelettes, quiches..) so this year I wanted to also offer something a little different, and that could be made ahead.
My mom makes this delicious cold chicken savory cake, so I decided to go with that option, but with a salmon and cream cheese version, as I think the flavors are more suited to Easter.
Savory cakes are a perfect addition to any Spring brunch, since they look so pretty and seasonal, but also can be made ahead and keep cool in the fridge until the party! - Full recipe coming here soon.
To accompany the savory cake, you can serve the usual egg dishes or a simple side salad.
We also served a Brazilian carrot bundt cake, that's my mom's recipe and mega quick to make! It's not your usual carrot cake but tastes just as delicious drenched in melted chocolate ganache topping! Yum! - Recipe coming soon.
A Floral Easter Brunch - Mimosa Bar
Finally for the drinks, we couldn't pass up on a chance to have our first mimosas of the year!
Yes, Easter rhymes with mimosa for me, what can I say?!
So we set up a mini bar on the side with all the trimming for guests to help themselves to hot cocoa and Easter eggs (for the kids), and fresh juices, fruits and rosé champagne for the mimosa-loving crowd!
