This year Nathan and I were honored to host Easter Brunch at our new home. I admit that I may have been a little over zealous for the holiday this year given that I had to “sit out” last year’s festivities due to a bad case of bed bug bites from previous travel. The chosen color scheme for our tablescape was a little out of the ordinary but still charming. It was also a good call to have brunch inside this year as we had a cold snap in the weather here. Next year, I’d like to have brunch outside as we did 2 YEARS PRIOR.
I did quite a bit of crafting for this tablescape, centering the entire theme around the bunny mobile (hahaha!). I attached a moss wreath to the chandelier with wire and then went from there on the decorating. I created a leaping bunny stencil by hand and then cut the bunnies from Kraft paper. CLICK HERE for a free download of my bunny stencil. These could have made cute name cards or brunch menus as well. The carrot bunch was purchased from Pier1. For the centerpiece, I bought some ceramic eggs from Hobby Lobby and spray painted them gold. I think the napkins folded into bunnies made for a nice touch. CLICK HERE for a video tutorial. And, of course, a brunch would not be complete without some mimosas. To pull in the orange color from the carrots and flowers, I added in Rose’s Grenadine after pouring in the orange juice and champagne first to create Sunrise Mimosas. And last, but not least, let’s talk about the chairs: These chairs are not going to be the permanent dining room chairs. Apparently a slip-covered Parson’s chair costs around $250/chair. You can do the math when you need 8. To tie us over until then, we decided to purchase wood chiavari chairs (cushions included) for about $30/chair. They match our decor, are stackable, and have weather proof cushions for outdoor entertaining. I figured they would be a good investment as we can always pull them out in the future to accommodate larger groups. We found the chairs online HERE. The table and beverage cart were second-hand finds in Tallahassee.
Anyhow, Easter Brunch was an overall success and we were happy to host family for the weekend, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. HE IS RISEN!
