Easter Brunch & Egg Hunt – Table Setting

An Easter Brunch deserves a special table for the adults since the kids have all the fun with egg hunting and eating treats {you can catch the sweets table and kids tablein Part 1 of this inspiration shoot to get ideas there}.  This table is a bit more sophisticated and would be ideal for any Spring brunch or luncheon, as well as Mother’s Day
  • As usual I began the place settings with my white plates.  These are a great investment for anyone who enjoys entertaining, as you can design easily around them, and food always looks best on this “blank canvas.” 
  • Purple doilies found in the $1 bin of Michael’s were a great way to add color and a nice base for the place card holders to sit on. 
  • The addition of a yellow cotton napkin placed under the plate was all that was needed to complete the look.
  • The cuppies from Jimemmajack are playful and decorative as they sit on the rim of coffee mugs at each place setting. 
  • Pretty name cards from Chickabug are placed in nest card holders filled with wrapped chocolate eggs.   
  • The centerpiece is pretty simple as it is a small vase filled with pink and yellow carnations and white daisies set inside a bird cage from Michael’s.  Flanking this were 2 smaller bird cages filled with chocolate malt eggs.
  • Favors were inexpensive and easy to dress up with $1 flower seed bags from Target. 
  • The rustic jute bag was adorable but needed some pizzazz to sit on our brunch table.  I simply cut panels of fabric to size and attached it along with a circle tag using the jute tie already present.  The butterfly & hummingbird flower mix inside will remind guests of the festive time they had!
  • The nice thing about hosting a brunch like this is that you don’t necessarily have to do all the cooking yourself.  You can provide the specialty cookies, drinks, and the main dish – such as a honey baked ham – and have your guests bring the side dishes
  • For a brunch, it’s a good idea to serve a mix of items that reflect both breakfast and lunch.  Pastries, fruit, mixed salads, and breakfast meats can all be incorporated. 
  • You can see the recipe for these ham & cheese phyllo cups I made.  These are a delicious way to tie your guests over while anticipating the main course.
Make sure you visit part 1 of our Easter Brunch to see the sweets table and kids table!

  21. Chris, this brunch was absolutely inspiring. About 2 weeks ago I read and saw the FABULOUS pictures and I felt like celebrating Easter immediately! I then decided to make a “cookies and milk” (and some few food as well) for my kid and some of our neighbours this next weekend. I am sure it your post was inspiring to everyone who read it, even the ones who have not left a comment. Thank you again for sharing your work with your followers. XOXO. Beatriz
