We usually have brunch on Easter - instead of a big dinner. Our grandson Ben was my co-host. He and I planned the menu weeks ahead of time.
The table is set for the buffet brunch. The tulips were a birthday gift from my housekeeper and her sweet family.
Daffodil bouquet is from Don.
I made this plastic canvas Bunny House several years ago - it is always Ben's choice for the centerpiece. The bunny has a basket and some tiny plastic canvas eggs.
Bunny bowls, cabbage bowls and Bunny House
The tulips are double - and look almost like peonies.
Gingham napkins with polka dot flower pot napkin rings that I painted. I do love polka dots.
Shiny vintage silver serving spoons
And of course some spring colored candies
More gingham napkins with flower basket napkin rings.
Yellow flatware in a daisy pail.
A new lemon pitcher - a gift from Don
And food - the menu was waffles, fruit compote (blackberry and strawberry compotes) (and freshly whipped, whipped cream), deviled eggs (I colored the whites after splitting them for the deviled eggs - just food coloring in a cup of warm water)
Also sausages, bacon, cheesy potatoes with hollendaise sauce, croissants
A French toast blueberry, cream cheese casserole and an egg, sausage and cheese casserole and fresh pineapple. We ate like kings - and queens.
Egg shaped salt and pepper - vintage Avon
And for dessert - cupcakes that Ben and I baked and decorated the day before
The brunch was followed by an easter egg hunt - the boys decided that they would hide the eggs and the adults would hunt them. They found some great hiding places and we had a lot of laughs over things that the dads - and grampy - put in their baskets that weren't easter eggs - like a gnome that was swinging in a tree, and several small egg shaped stones. It was a wonderful day - with sunshine in the afternoon and lots of chairs on the deck for enjoying the good company.
