Now I know that Easter morning is usually ALL about the chocolate (believe me after giving it up for lent I am more than ready to inhale at least two packets of Mini Eggs and five Maltesar bunnies all in record time) but this year I thought I’d try to make things a little more special by hosting my very own Easter themed brunch.
When it comes to celebrating seasonal events I’ve always thought that once I own a house of my own I’d be the hostess with the mostess, think Monica Gellar but hopefully slightly less high maintenance…We might still be a bit of a way off yet when it comes to becoming homeowners but I still like to pretend every so often with some scaled back celebrations so when The White Company got in touch and asked if I’d like to create an Easter themed breakfast featuring some of their gorgeous kitchen accessories I jumped at the chance! I mean can you really get a more perfect pairing than beautiful homeware pieces and tasty food?!
If you too want to host the perfect Easter brunch for all of your friends and family be sure to read on to find out how to achieve it!
Let’s start with one of the most important elements of any brunch shall we? The food!
Hands down, one of my favourite parts about Easter has got to be the abundance of hot cross buns and the delicious sweet smell that follows them wherever they go. It was a no brainer that they’d be making an appearance at my Easter morning brunch and they look so perfect sat within this super cute heart shaped bread basket so that your guests can simply help themselves.
I just don’t think you can beat a buttery hot cross bun teamed with a cup of tea on a bright Spring morning. I’m definitely going to be making the most of them over the long weekend before we have to say our final goodbyes for another year.
To perk your guests up in the morning caffeine is going to be a necessity so that’s where this beautiful glass teapot comes in. I’ve had one on my wish-list for quite dome time now and even Adam has expressed an interest in owning one so this was a very welcome addition to our (future) home.
Such a simple yet elegant design it perfectly compliments any dining table no matter the style. Teamed with some matching glass tea cups and you’re ready to put your feet up and indulge in some perfectly brewed tea, in between courses of Easter egg! I might have to invest in some prettier looking loose leaf tea just so I can really showcase it in all it’s glory.
Now we’ve got the food covered lets talk table decoration. In true Spring style I’ve kept things pretty simple with some pops of yellow and green and also pulled in some natural textures with these gorgeous jute woven coasters. And just in case there’s any mucky pups around then these super cute heart print napkins might come in handy, although on second thoughts maybe they’re actually too pretty to use!
To really add a finishing touch to the table, flowers are an absolute must. Usually I’m a sucker for picking up umpteen bunches of daffodils at once because does anything really scream Spring more? But seeing as it was a special occasion I thought I’d go all out and treat myself to some yellow tulips which really do instantly brighten up any room.
And finally, of course no Easter table would be complete without the addition of Mini Eggs. These pots aren’t likely to stick around long come Sunday morning but they look pretty in the mean time none-the-less. If you do fancy hiding some for later then this stoneware ceramic jar might just come in handy too!
How are you going to be celebrating the Easter weekend? Do you have any brunch essentials?
