Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. Honestly, I think it’s the decor, abundance of chocolate and ham dinner. Every year like clockwork, the crocus would begin to emerge from the frosty floral beds outside and so did the ceramic scenes of playful bunnies inside. Easter is a sign of springtime and soon summer. Bright colors fill the house. The air outside is crisp. The buds of spring and songbirds signal new life are all around.
Here’s a peek at our Easter Brunch table this year. I opted for natural colored hard boiled eggs, enjoyed with a pinch of pink sea salt. White eggs were used as place cards. Individually nestled in a spring nest with crayon lettering. Fresh squeezed orange juice and hot black coffee with fruit and friendly conversation.
This year’s tablescape came together easily from staples I had already invested in or been gifted. The adorable s+p shakers and silver were gifts from my mom. The linen robins egg tablecloth and verdant napkins were Home Goods finds. I do particularly love the little bunnies in a basket salt and pepper shakers. I’m honestly not sure how it came to be but my childhood nickname was bunny. Only something my parents or brothers would use. Hence my affinity for bunnies. Wood berry boxes are a staple in the kitchen. Great for serving or organizing in both the pantry and the refrigerator.
I kept the flowers simple, variegated tulips and daffodils. The vintage blue mason jars I literally stole from my parents years ago and I still don’t feel badly about it. Sorry, Mom and Dad!
After I put down the camera we shared a leisurely brunch. Complete with warm handmade cinnamon buns, eggs benedict and mimosas, of course!
