Easy Tips for Hosting Easter Brunch
Easter is just a hop, skip and a jump away, let's make sure you are ready to host brunch this year.
Starting with your menu, take a moment to think through the meal and list what needs to be made and then star the items you are happy to make. Whatever was not starred ask friends or family to bring or go to your favorite shop to pick up. There's no shame in focusing on the dishes you know will be delicious and leaving the rest to other experts.
As the centerpiece of your event your tablescape is on full display. Use brightly colored linens, like these, to bring fun and sophistication to your space. Plan to set your table the night before as Easter will be a full day.
Do you have a large tablecloth that only comes out for special occasions? Instead of spending ages ironing head straight to the dry cleaners to have it pressed - task complete!
Nothing says Easter like decorated eggs. Keep your guests pleasantly occupied by letting both kids and adults decorate their own eggs before brunch is served. This will lead up to another activity later in the day.
Add a bouquet of flowers to your table or sideboard with a vase, that compliments both your style and the occasion. As a hostess, you may also receive flowers so having a beautiful backup vase is key.
Planning to have appetizers or cocktails? A beautiful serving tray comes in handy when delivering treats. Take a cue from your favorite restaurant and whisk away dirty dishes after the meal is done with that same tray. Find one here.
Don't forget the bathroom - impress your guests with a polished vanity set, like these, and add a spa-like aroma with an oil filled diffuser. We like Young Living's lavender.
Once brunch is cleared and all the Easter egg hunts have finished, take a basket filled with the eggs that were decorated earlier to the highest hill in your area. Each person will attempt to roll their egg the furthest for a small prize and bragging rights.
As the sun starts to fade be sure to have warm blankets on hand to keep guests cozy. Shop our selection here.
Be sure to divvy up tasks before and during the day - remember, this is your Easter too and your friends and family want to see you (and not from afar in the kitchen).
Have a beautiful Easter!
