Hop on down the bunny trail, because it’s time to plan an unforgettable Easter brunch! Ham, lamb, hot cross buns, and deviled eggs are classic staples, but if you want to add some extra pizzazz to your celebration this year, we’ve got some egg-citing ideas for you.
First things first, let’s talk about saving yourself from Easter morning chaos. Do as much prep work as you can beforehand! Whip up some overnight brunch recipes like baked French toast or casseroles. And if you can’t make everything in advance, prep ingredients like a boss – chop, mix, knead, and get everything ready to go.
On the big day, a buffet is the way to go! Guests can serve themselves, and you’ll have plenty of space to spread out all your brunch goodies. Omelet quiche, vegetable frittata, cheesy egg and potato breakfast casserole, lemon and blueberry scones, individual baked egg muffins, fruit salad, and berry trifle are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
For a more casual brunch, consider making some Charcuterie Brunch Boards – one savory with meats and cheeses, and one sweet with pastries and fruits. You can never go wrong with bagels and lox, build-your-own waffles, fruits and nuts, bruschetta, and peachy caprese salad.
Now, let’s talk about the most egg-citing part of Easter brunch – the decorations! You can’t go wrong with pastel colors, fresh flowers, and cute little bunnies. Get creative with your centerpieces – use an Easter basket, teapot, or a glass vase filled with water and fruit. And don’t forget the candy! You can make an easy DIY vase by placing a smaller vase inside a larger one and filling the space with jelly beans or other festive candies.
Make a drink station with coffee, tea, fruit-infused water, mimosas, and Easter brunch punch. And let’s not forget about the kids! Get them involved with some fun crafts like marshmallow peep houses or quick and easy bird nest cookies.
But wait, there’s more! Easter egg hunts aren’t just for kids anymore. Hide eggs filled with grown-up goodies like cash, gift cards, and liquor-filled chocolates. And most importantly, enjoy the day! It may not be completely stress-free, but the memories will be worth the effort. Happy Easter!
