Good news! This year we can finally gather family and friends around our table to celebrate Easter. Here are some great ideas and recipes for a fabulous Easter brunch.
Easter is a religious festival, but it’s also the perfect time to celebrate the arrival of spring. Pull out all your colourful plates and don’t hesitate to mix colours to create a festive table. Match the dishware with fabric napkins in pastel shades and learn how to easily fold bunny napkins with the help of online tutorials; this small detail will surely impress your guests! Put small bowls with hand-painted eggs (ask the kids to paint them) and small porcelain bunnies or chickens around the table. Place a spring flower on each plate, such a tulip or a daffodil. For affordable decorations, you’ll find plenty of decorative items at your local dollar store.
For the perfect brunch, serve easily shared egg-based dishes, such as herb-flavoured puff omelette or clean-out-the-fridge strata filled with pieces of dry bread, eggs and vegetables. Instead of preparing individual pancakes, try the fast and easy to make Dutch pancakes. This giant pancake puffs up in the oven and easily serves 6 to 8 people. To finish the meal on a sweet note, why not serve a chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and biscotti or prepare our delicious carrot cake recipe, an irresistible Easter staple.
Whether you’re hosting an Easter brunch or attending one as a guest, putting on a nice spring outfit is a must! Pretty dress, floral blouse, pastel knit: you’ll find the perfect ensemble at the mall.
