How To Host A Stylish Brunch This Easter

When we think of Easter, asides from the obvious religious celebrations, what usually springs (we love a pun!) to mind are bunnies, egg hunts and, of course, chocolate. And even more chocolate.

Today we wanted to honour the gorgeous bold colours of the season and create a more grown-up approach to the traditional Easter table setting – think less bunnies and more bubbles with friends over brunch.

Set the table

As you can see from our Easter table setting, now isn’t the time to shy away from colour. And to be honest, who wants to when the past couple of months have been so dark and dreary? We need an injection of bold and bright shades!

Using a combination of our  woven placemats, coasters, and  trinket dishes, we’ve been able to create an Easter tablescape that is both playful and super stylish.

We also love the eclectic finish of using vintage glassware and display trays. 

The key is, don’t be afraid to mix your colour palette across the table – a fun way to add detail is to use alternative coloured side plates to your main dinner plates, as well as using both fabric and woven placemats to add depth to each place setting.

This colour palette works perfectly because the colour family remains the same – muted neons and subtle brights, complementing each other rather than clashing.

Look for alternative decorations

When you are creating a grown-up Easter table setting, consider more alternative decorations like our woven eggs, which you can handcraft yourself with our  easy-to-follow instruction guide here.
How good do they look in this ceramic egg holder? Plus, the beauty of decorations like this is that, year after year you can reuse them, creating Easter traditions just like we do at Christmas.

Another alternative tablescape idea is to mix both fresh and dried flowers, as we have here with daffodils and baked blooms from our collaboration with The Happy Blossom, sitting in one of our  woven mini baskets.

When creating a centerpiece like this for your grown-up Easter table setting, be sure to remember the rule of 3 - an interior design term that states items paired together in odd numbers such as 3, 5 and 7, for example, are more visually appealing, effective and memorable.

Here we have stuck to the rules (for once!) and added a cinnamon and nutmeg scented candle alongside our flowers for that luxe Easter scent, designed to not only spark tastebuds but evoke those olfactory memories of hot chocolate and bonnet making as children.

What’s on the menu?

Hosting a more grown-up Easter celebration calls for a brunch with friends. Obviously, we still crave a hit of chocolate, which is why we added chocolate eggs to our dishes as the placemat centre piece. It is a great way to offer a delicious starter to nibble on over mimosas (it’s never too early for chocolate right?!) – however, can we take a moment to recognise just how many uses our dishes have?

Whether you are storing your jewellery on your bedside table or using these dishes to offer snacks to your guests, this really is a multipurpose storage must-have.

So, what’s on the menu? Obviously, eggs are the special of the day so how about the classic brunch option of eggs benedict? We love these 18 creative eggs benedict recipes to up your brunch game from Brit + Co – sign us up for the Cotija Guacamole and Chorizo Eggs Benedict With Honey Chipotle Lime Sauce please.

Add a Peach Prosecco Punch, a twist on the classic Mimosa with grapefruit and mint, or a selection of fruit teas and coffee and this Easter brunch is as grown up as can be.

We won’t shut the door on you if you decide to bring your bunny ears though...
