Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. The flowers are in bloom and the weather is finally starting to warm up. I used to get so excited as a little girl during this time, from picking out my Easter dress to going to church with my family, and then coming home for brunch and an Easter egg hunt!
I’ve kept our Easter family traditions as an adult and love hosting brunch at my house. It’s all about decorating the backyard and spending quality time with friends and family.
This year, creating an Easter tablescape was one of my favorite things to do; I simply loved all of the Easter decor I saw in the aisles! I decided I wanted to create something kid-friendly and not too fussy. To anchor my table, I chose a white runner featuring little white pompoms that reminded me of a cottontail bunny. This also added a much-needed neutral to balance all of the colorful Easter hues.
For the place mats, I carefully cut the moss runner into four pieces. This look totally transformed the table so that each person got a little piece of their own moss. The final look reminded me of a fairytale forest.
For decor, I had so much fun adding the mini chicks to the Easter trees. They add so much personality to the space and I enjoyed placing them on very specific branches so that each person at the table gets their own little bird taking a peek at them. I placed one tree on each end of the table to create a whimsical vibe.
I added the mini baskets to each place mat and filled them with one bubble gum egg. These eggs look hand-painted—you wouldn’t even know that they’re made of bubble gum! The playful wood bunnies helped complete the look. Any time I host parties outside, I prefer to use melamine and I love the vintage feel of these bunny plates and matching cups. They’re such a versatile set; you can dress them up or down. The poppy flowers and plum blossoms helped me create more of the enchanted Easter forest look I was going for.
For my DIY Easter Activity, I placed edible grass inside the small glass canisters and then added mini chocolate eggs and topped them with a Peep chick. Not only is this a fun activity, but it’s also a great party favor!
For an easy treat, I just adore these beautifully decorated Easter cookies. I simply placed the cookies on the Jade pedestal cake stand for the centerpiece. These are just the perfect little treat, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside with your friends and family.
