This year, gather your loved ones to celebrate Easter with a delicious brunch in a fun and festive setting. A day to celebrate new life, this holiday is perfect for bouquets of lilies, colorful egg hunts and quality time with friends and family.
As brunch is a combination of the best parts of breakfast and lunch, it’s only fitting to serve traditional favorites with a few unique recipes sprinkled in. From pretty place settings to mouthwatering treats, we’ve rounded up 50 Easter brunch ideas and recipes to help you plan a simple and stylish get-together.
Focus on the details
Nothing brings a party together like a perfectly-balanced tablescape! With gold accents, colorful centerpieces and customized place cards, it’s the small, special touches that will make your brunch one to remember.
Have a color palette in mind
When choosing a color palette to work with, keep in mind the colors of the food you’ll be serving to avoid clashing. By using blush tones and light, airy colors, bold fruits and foods will “pop” in a picture. Also, a metallic accent in small doses, such as a sprinkle of confetti, is a great way to add a touch of glam to your celebration.
Consider a floral runner
For stands and serving dishes, use similar shades and materials to give your table a clean and sophisticated look. To keep conversations flowing back and forth easily across the table, centerpieces and decorations should be kept at lower than eye level. Opt for smaller elements throughout your display, like individual flowers or small bouquets to add some visual texture to the table.
Cater to a variety of different tastes
At brunch, all delicious dishes and bite-sized treats are welcome! Combine the best flavors of breakfast and lunch with a spread that covers every type of craving. Serve a savory and filling dish such as a casserole, as these can be made ahead of time and reheated in the morning before your guests arrive.
Offer bite-sized options
For sweets, offer an assortment of options such as sliced fruit or cinnamon rolls to nibble on throughout the day. Individually-sized muffins, cakes and pastries are easy for the host to arrange and for guests to grab.
Jazz up your treats
Go the extra mile when it comes to creating and displaying your culinary creations. Toothpicks with beads or printed flags is a great way to tie together your theme from dish to dish. Consider using skewers as an alternative to utensils for a convenient way for guests to keep one hand free.
Keep your bubbly chilled
Whether it’s hot or cold, give your guests something unforgettable to sip on. Have traditional options such as coffee and tea available, but also offer fun and festive drinks for this special holiday. A signature drink, such as a refreshing cocktail, is a great way to set the mood for the rest of the afternoon.
Designate a drink station
A small beverage table separate from the main seating area can double as a place for your guests to gather and chat. Line this table with a variety of juice pitchers, along with bowls of fresh fruit to serve as a pretty garnish. Decorate the table with a big, bright bouquet of tulips, lilacs and other spring flowers to carry the theme over from the main table.
Add flavor to your water
For the guests looking to put a fruity spin on their drink, freeze your favorite berries into ice cubes for a pretty and functional touch. Keep a few carafes of water nearby for guests to refill their drinks without having to leave the table!
On this day of celebration, spending quality time with good friends and family over good food is the best part. Whether you love bold tones or cooler colors, be sure to brighten up the day with fresh flowers and vibrant decor for everyone to enjoy.
