Easter is a celebration of life and rebirth. Many honor this significant time of the year by hosting an Easter brunch for family and friends. Hop into a fun Sunday by welcoming your loved ones with playful décor and elegant table settings. Create a memorable gathering with these Easter brunch decorating ideas.
1. Welcome guests with bursts of color
Make your entryway a preview of what to expect inside your home. Start by adorning your porch and front door with floral wreaths, garlands, and other greenery like topiaries and potted foliage. Use the same type of blooms as a centerpiece for your entryway table. These create cheerful pops of color that your guests can’t ignore.
For the fun part, add iconic Easter decorations to your display. Set colorful Easter eggs along the pathway or at the base of your potted plants. Then, place figures like bunnies or chicks by the door for a chirpy welcome.
2. Get creative with your Easter brunch table decorations
Dress the table with soft, spring hues. From blush to muted blues and greens, a setting inspired by nature is always a refreshing sight. Select a main color and choose to decorate with either a monochromatic palette or with complementing hues. Let your floral arrangements and tableware reflect that color scheme.
Start by designing your Easter brunch centerpiece. Take your pick from Balsam Hill’s floral garlands or flower arrangements. Or, use a spring wreath instead and place Easter eggs in its center for a new take on a basket of treats. Add in some jellybeans, chocolate eggs, and other treats that both kids and adults will enjoy.
Elevate your place settings by layering a charger, a dinner plate, and a salad plate. As a finishing touch, add Easter elements such as hand-painted eggs monogrammed with your guests’ initials. Also, consider napkin holders that match your theme or bunny napkin folds for a fun twist. These playful Easter brunch decorating ideas will surely set the mood for the day.
3. Prepare a culinary feast for the senses
Transform ordinary dishes into picture-perfect works of art. Here are Easter breakfast table ideas for you to try:
A Sweet Easter Spin on an Italian Family Favorite
Go from savory to sweet with a pizza made from a sugar cookie crust, cream cheese frosting, and assorted fruits. Shape it into an egg and decorate with fresh fruit.
- Sugar cookie dough, chilled
- Cream cheese
- Powdered sugar
- Fruit jam or jelly
- Assorted fresh fruit, sliced
- Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
- Roll out your sugar cookie dough into an oval on a floured surface. Use a sharp knife to trim the edges.
- Bake the cookie crust for 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
- Mix fruit jam, powdered sugar, and cream cheese in a bowl.
- Once the crust cools completely, spread your cream cheese mixture evenly.
- Decorate with sliced fruit the way you would an Easter egg.
- Warm your fruit jelly in the microwave for a few seconds. Then, brush a thin layer over your dessert pizza. Serve and enjoy.
New Egg-citing Takes on a Brunch Staple
Another creative Easter Sunday table idea is serving deviled eggs with a variety of fillings. Lay them out on a buffet table and have guests hunt for their favorites. A base recipe of just three ingredients gives you lots of room to experiment with bold flavors.
- Hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced in half, lengthwise
- Ingredients for your flavor variations
- Scoop out the egg yolks into a large bowl. Mash with a fork until smooth.
- Mix in your mayonnaise and salt.
- Divide your egg mixture into equal parts. Set them into small bowls. Then, make your fillings.
- Place the egg mixture into a piping bag to fill in each egg white. Use a different tip for each flavor to add depth to your plating.
- Chop small pieces of colorful ingredients to use as garnish. Serve and enjoy.
4. Turn an egg hunt into a scavenger hunt
Incorporate other activities into your traditional egg hunt and invite the adults to join the fun. Instead of simply hiding eggs around your home, send your guests on a treasure hunt. Print the clues on fancy cards or handwrite them for a personal touch.
Set up stations for each activity and decorate each according to the theme. Some ideas are puzzles, riddles, and paintings. Award guests with an egg for their baskets once they complete a task.
5. Give Christmas decorations a spring boost
Refresh your evergreen Christmas wreaths and garlands by adding flowers. Switch holiday accents like pinecones and berries for citrus fruits and colorful spring blooms. Use your repurposed greenery as a table centerpiece, wall décor, or accents on the back of chairs. Also, there’s no need to take down your outdoor Christmas lights after winter. They’re perfect for lighting up your exterior lounging spaces all year long.
Another option is to create an Easter tree. Decorate your artificial Christmas tree with egg ornaments and bunny ear picks. Instead of presents, place baskets filled with colorful eggs at the base of your tree. Then, add colorful Twinkly® light strings to illuminate your masterpiece in Easter fashion.
Make this holiday a time to bond with family and friends. Create a meaningful celebration that represents new beginnings with our selection of Easter brunch décor.
