How to Host a Charming Easter Brunch!
Easter is one of the most exciting holidays of the year, especially if you have little ones still
looking forward to the Easter Bunny’s visit. While the chocolate bunnies and dyed eggs are fun
ways to celebrate, one of my favorite ways is hosting an Easter brunch! Whether you want to
wow your family with a brunch they won’t soon forget or celebrate with friends and loved ones
instead, here is how to host a charming Easter brunch from home.
Choose a Spring Color Palette
Decor and color palettes can really transform any dining occasion into an elegant event. For an
Easter Brunch, choose colors and decor that represent the season and the reason you are
gathering together. Adding fresh flowers, bunnies, and other spring decors can create an
inviting tablescape your guests won’t soon forget. Don’t be afraid to head outside and bring in
outdoor elements and incorporate them into your napkin holders or centerpiece
Set up a Self-Serve Beverage Station
If you want to create a charming and elegant brunch for your guests, consider starting by setting
up a beverage station where guests can serve themselves. Keep a bowl or bucket of ice to chill
drinks, and set out pitches or cans of your drinks. A pitcher of lemonade or sparkling water can
make it easy for guests to help themselves while you tend to the food.
If you’re looking for some bubbly options for your drinks, consider making a bellini or mimosa
area as part of your beverage station.
Picture the Plate and Plan Your Menu
You might feel a little overwhelmed with so many delicious brunches and Easter staples. To
make things easier on yourself, start with this simple formula: a main protein, a carb-based side,
and two fruit or vegetable-based sides. Some examples could be potato salad, cole slaw, green
salad, an egg casserole, or even a quiche.
Lastly, add some bread or pastries to fill out your menu. These could be anything from
croissants to tarts. By limiting the number of dishes served and providing options, you will
ensure everyone is fed and won’t have to spend all day in the kitchen preparing thousands of

Dress Code for Easter Brunch
While you certainly don’t have to dress up for your Easter Brunch, I recommend dressing in your
Sunday best. Not only will it bring your whole event together, but a casual elegance can make
your brunch feel charming and more like a party than a meal. Break out the fancy dishware and
put on a nice dress.
If you don’t want to dress up, consider a more casual feel by incorporating more vintage
decorations instead. This will still give you the casual elegance you’re looking for but without
breaking out the fine china.
