How to Host an Easter Brunch They’ll Never Forget

While I love to host most holidays, Easter is on my high list of favorites.

There’s not as much pressure as Thanksgiving or Christmas.

And almost anything goes for the menu.

Almost.

Of course, there are traditional dishes, like ham.

But you can really have fun with an Easter brunch menu in my opinion.

Not to mention, Easter arrives around the same time as spring so we start adding lots of pretty pastels, flowers, and greenery around the house.

If you are hosting Easter this year like me, here are a few tips to throw the best Easter brunch your friends and family will never forget.

Choose a Spring Color Palette for Easter Brunch

First, we’ve got to decide on the decor and choose a color palette that represents the season and the reason for the gathering.

When choosing a color palette for my table decor, I’m often inspired by what’s happening in my gardens.

Even if you don’t have expansive gardens like me, look to nature and pull colors that speak to you.

It’s amazing how the colors outside can inspire what we do inside.

Since it’s spring, I’m going with pretty pink pastels to mirror the soft color of the season.  

And because we are still pretty early in the season here, there isn’t much blooming in my garden just yet, so I went to my local grocery store to pick up some pretty pink and white flowers.

There were lots of options to choose from but I restrained myself and limited it to shades of pink and white.

My dining room is very neutral with woods and whites, so this spring color palette will really stand out for Easter brunch.

Bring the Outdoors in For the Prettiest Spring Table

Nothing says spring quite like flowers. 

Setting a table that reflects the season includes bringing those outdoor elements to the table.

Look around your landscape and see what you can add from the outdoors.

From tulips to peonies, roses to hydrangeas, there is much to bring inside from nature.

And the best part?

It doesn’t cost a dime!

So start foraging!

Make a Centerpiece for the Dining Table

And speaking of bringing the outdoors in, what better way than to incorporate those elements in a gorgeous centerpiece.

You guys know how much I love my centerpieces, right?

Lately, I’ve been into decorating this vintage toolbox with beautiful faux flowers and changing them through the seasons in my home.

For this tabescape though?

I’m going with a fresh flower centerpiece that I arranged myself for $45.

You can save so much money on an arrangement if you make it yourself.

As an aside, it doesn’t matter if you go with real or faux flowers in a centerpiece.

Use what you love and works for you in your tablescape design.

You got this!

Break Out Those Special Occasion Dishes

You know that fine china you were gifted at your wedding or was passed down from a relative?

Or maybe you found it at the thrift store.

It’s time to break them out of storage and use them!

What’s the point of having pretty things that we keep in storage and never use?

My Lenox on my Easter brunch Table

I try to use my Lenox as often as possible when we entertain.

The dinnerware is beautiful and it literally goes with ANYTHING!

To me, it’s casually elegant because you can dress it up or down.

The only limits we have are ones we place on ourselves keeping us from using them because we think they are too special and don’t want to risk damaging them.

So let’s change that mindset.

Since every day is special use the dishes!

For brunches, I love to add some pieces for tea in addition to offering coffee.

Our family is really into tea parties, so I like to tuck a few pretty teapots, cups and saucers on the table as well.

And yes, you can totally mix vintage tea pieces with your fine china or other dinnerware.

Mixing things up adds more interest to the table.

Add Some Pretty Table Linens for Easter Brunch

I know it’s sometimes easier to use paper napkins, but break out those linens.

There are so many beautiful and inexpensive options out there.

They are eco-friendly.

And using fabric table linens ups your tablescaping game.

They add softness, texture, and dimension, particularly if they have a laced edge like THESE.

Host an Easter Egg Hunt

One of the best memories I have with our family on Easter is the egg hunt!

The kids love it.

And the adults love it just as much.

To watch the excitement of our kids dashing around to pick up as many eggs as possible was always so much fun.

So if you are hosting Easter this year, set up an egg hunt!

Even if the littles aren’t so little anymore.

Award chocolate prizes for different categories such as who finds the most eggs or the most yellow eggs, etc.

Or make a golden egg that gets hidden in a very tough spot so EVERYONE can look for it.

However you decided to run your own egg hunt, make it fun!

Make an Easter Brunch Menu

I know we are focusing on the Easter brunch table, and decor, but a great menu is just as important!

Choose dishes that include flavors of the season that are light bites like finger sandwiches, quiches, and pastries.

Oh and Don’t Forget the Candles!

And last but not least, add lots of mood lighting.

Although it’s early in the day, nothing says cozy more than some dimly lit candles both on the table and around the room.

Tuck some votives around the table like THESE and add a few candlesticks like THESE to vary the height and add more interest to the table.

And that’s it!!!

Next up in our virtual dinner club is my good friend Michele from Vintage Home Designs.

Happy Easter!

  1. Stacy, I LOVE your centerpiece. The flowers are stunning and the gold planter is such a pretty focal point. And the throwback Easter egg hunt photos are so fun. Reminds me of when we used to have egg hunts at my aunt’s farm when we were little.

    1. Those were the days! I miss my kids being that little but I’ll tell you we do events for the adults too and it’s so fun!
