Saying goodbye to winter certainly calls for celebration! As spring starts to bloom, our minds turn to fun Easter party ideas. Why not celebrate the occasion with an elegant Easter brunch for you and your pastel-loving posse from the comfort of home? Our at-home brunch ideas will turn your Easter festivities into a sweet egg-stravaganza; but we better hop to it! Easter’s almost on its way.
Let's Start with the Table
Your Easter tablespace sets the tone for your celebration. If you’ve been saving those fun pastel plates and napkins for a special occasion, now’s the perfect time to pull them out! White china with colorful napkins can offer a simple and chic look for an elegant brunch.
Decorate your Easter table with a festive table runner, and place little nests filled with our pastel-colored Milk Chocolate Marshmallow Eggs around the table for a sweet decorative detail. One way to make your guests feel egg-stra special is to dress up each place setting with personalized name cards or, better yet, personalized dishes accented with our Robin’s Egg Caramels.
A Party in Full Bloom
Nothing says spring like big, blooming flowers! Make fresh flowers your table’s centerpiece – we’re all ready for a pop of springtime color to liven things up. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a florist to put together some gorgeous bouquets. Just grab some springtime favorites such as pansies, tulips and lilacs from your grocery store and arrange them into several small vases to place along the center of the table.
Pro tip: Make sure to get your flowers a day or two in advance, so the bulbs have time to bloom before your party. Don’t have a green thumb? Pick up some fabulous faux flowers to dress up the occasion – plus, you don’t have to worry about watering them.
It’s All About the Food
We love brunch because it gives you an excuse to enjoy your favorite sweet and savory foods at once! While you could spend hours in the kitchen trying to whip up one of those fancy frittatas, we suggest making it easier on yourself by creating a sweet and savory charcuterie board for your guests to nosh on.
If you have a favorite local bakery, now is the perfect time to splurge on those feta and spinach croissants, cheese or fruit danishes and savory scones. Once you’ve lined your board with these mouth-watering brunch morsels, grab some of our Easter sweets such as our Baby Butterflies and Bunny Tails. We love scattering them directly on the board, as well as in small festive dishes for easy-to-grab snacking. Our candies will add the perfect burst of color to your charcuterie board!
If you’re planning to serve cocktails at your brunch, you may want to create a large batch of mimosas or Bellinis so you’re not spending the entire time mixing drinks. Skewer some of our candies and place them on top of your cocktail glasses for a garnish your guests will actually want to eat.
Better than a Chocolate Bunny
Easter sweets aren’t just for kids! Adults want treats, too. Why not create mini baskets filled with your gals’ favorite Sugarfina sweets for them to take home? Replace the traditional chocolate bunny with our Jelly Bean Chocolate Bars, and mix and match our Easter gummies for delicious party favors they’re sure to eat up! Just don’t forget to make a basket for yourself. After all, you are the hostess, and you deserve to treat yourself!
However you choose to celebrate the Easter holiday, we hope it’s a hoppy one. If you’re looking to sweeten up your festivities, we have the Easter candy and chocolates that we know you’ll love a whole brunch. Hop on over to our Easter Collection to grab the perfect treats, and don’t forget to tag us on social media @sugarfina to show us your spread!
