1. A delicious Easter brunch menu
Have a delicious Easter brunch menu. Include your favorite recipes and help yourself out by doing some of the cooking the night before!
Pinch of Yum makes this delicious beer cheese soup that can be eaten as a snack, appetizer or whatever you need it to be. We just recommend that you make it because how delicious does it look?!
Every Easter meal needs a ham. This one from The Recipe Rebel is perfect because you can make it the night before! You will thank yourself on Easter morning when you already have the main dish finished. Don’t get us wrong, we love brunch but don’t forget you don’t have all afternoon to cook. You can even watch the video on her page to see how easy it is to make!
Lena, the food blogger behind Lena’s Kitchen, made these delicious bacon pancakes on her blog. We love bacon and we love pancakes. This might just be the best idea ever! Get the recipe on her blog! This sweet and savory combination will help bridge the meal from the main dish to the desserts.
Nora from Savory Nothings makes this irresistible French toast that we can’t stop dreaming about. Make this dessert the night before Easter and make hosting Easter brunch easier on yourself. This French toast looks so appetizing, we’re guessing you might have to make extra for your guests!
We can’t think of a bad time for chocolate cake. Why not make one for Easter? This double chocolate cake found on Alexandra’s Kitchen might be the most decadent thing we’ve laid our eyes on.
2. Create a welcoming home
While setting the table, use these adorable decorations found in our store. Create your own napkin art and use simple green décor within your place settings.
Pick a color palette. Try including ultra violet and a few other colors from the 2018 spring Pantone palette! We incorporated flowers and greenery inspired by meadowlark and lime punch (two shades from the palette) into our table scape full of greenery.
One of the best ways to decorate for Easter is with greenery. So first, pick out what type of greenery you want in your home and go from there. Do you want fresh greenery? Stop by your local greenhouse to find some that will easily fit into your table décor! If you prefer faux greenery that you will never have to water, head to Homemakers! You will find as much greenery and floral décor as you could possibly need throughout our showroom and in our seasonal accessory marketplace!
3. Entertain your guests
Along with the classic Easter egg hunt and egg dying, there are many other activities you can do on Easter! Go the extra mile with these simple extras:
Have guests that are still children at heart? They don’t have to be left out of the Easter basket fun! These five adult Easter baskets are a fun way to personalize an Easter gift that will make you everyone’s favorite Easter brunch host!
