As spring starts to settle and Easter comes closer, many people honor this time of the year by hosting brunch for family and friends. Decorating for Easter brunch is one way to make the holiday more memorable and it can be as simple as adding flowers and bunnies to your décor. In this article, we share tips and recommendations on how to make the day extra special.
WELCOME GUESTS WITH A BURST OF COLOR
Give guests a preview of what to expect inside your home. Place FLOWER WREATHS, garlands, and other greenery such as topiaries and potted foliage on your porch and front door. For a unified look, use the same type of blooms in your Easter brunch table centerpieces. These create cheerful pops of color that your guests can’t ignore.
ADD THEMED ACCENTS
Easter calls to mind not just spring flowers, but also the iconic images of eggs and bunnies. Set colorful eggs along the pathway or at the base of potted plants to hold treats for children while serving up sweet nostalgia for adults. You can also place chick figures by the door for a chirpy welcome. Another idea is to incorporate these characters in an Easter table setting vignette for a rustic woodland appeal.
SET THE TABLE
For your Easter brunch décor, dress the table with soft, spring hues to match the season. Select a main color then decorate with either a monochromatic or complementing palette. Make sure that your floral arrangements and tableware reflect that color scheme as well.
Another brunch table setting idea is to use a SPRING FLORAL GARLAND instead of a flower arrangement as your centerpiece, then place Easter eggs throughout the foliage. Add in some jellybeans, chocolate eggs, and other sweets that everyone will enjoy.
STYLE A BUFFET TABLE
A buffet table makes any event elegant and special. Use the same color palette as your dining table and play around with different heights to create symmetry. Your centerpiece can either be a SPRING FLORAL ARRANGEMENT or a multi-tiered dessert stand filled with baked goods and pastries. You can also designate one end of the table for drinks, glasses, cutlery, and napkins.
PLAN EASTER ACTIVITIES
Incorporate other activities into your traditional egg hunt and invite the adults to join the fun. Instead of simply hiding eggs around your home, send your guests on a treasure hunt. Print clues on cards or handwrite them for a personal touch. Set up stations for each activity such as puzzles, riddles, and paintings then decorate each according to the theme. You can then award guests with an egg for their baskets once they complete a task.
GIVE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS A SPRING BOOST
Add flowers to refresh your Christmas wreaths and garlands, then switch holiday accents like pinecones and berries for citrus fruits and colorful blooms. Repurpose your greenery as a table centerpiece, wall décor, or accents on the back of chairs. There’s also no need to take down your OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS after winter as they’re perfect for lighting up exterior lounge spaces all year long.
Another option is to set up an Easter Christmas tree with egg ornaments and bunny ear picks. For this brunch decoration idea, you can replace presents at the base of your tree with baskets of colorful eggs.
