Throwing an Easter brunch doesn't have to be time consuming, stressful and expensive. Mom's may be busy but they still like to have fun with their girlfriends. I'm here to show you just how easy and inexpensive a fun Easter brunch can be.
Step one: Decor. Pick up a decor pack at your local craft store. Craft stores are now selling decor packs like the one featured here that includes paper fans, honeycombs balls, paper lanterns and garlands. These decor packs cost around $10 and give a lot of color, texture and variety.
Step two: Food. The good thing about brunch is the food is easy. Very little to no cooking involved. You can keep it simple with fruit and croissants you pick up at your local bakery or grocery store. Or you can go bigger and cook up some bacon, eggs, make a quiche and more. You can even ask your friends to bring something to contribute.
Fruit is always something that my friends love to see at my brunch's and I never have left-overs.
Croissants and other bakery goods are perfect for brunch's. It's a great opportunity to try out a local bakery you've always wanted to try. There's no real prep involved. Just take it out of the bag and plate it.
Step three: Dessert. While you're at the bakery pick up some macarons, cookies or mini cakes. Your friends aren't going to care that you didn't bake dessert. They're coming over to brunch to see you and have a great time catching up. I picked up these macarons from Sprinkle Made PDX.
I like to dress up my desserts by placing them on top of sprinkles or Candyfetti.
Step four: Drinks. I like to have a variety available. Both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Champagne, mimosas, pink lemonade, tea to name a few.
Hopefully it's a sunny day so you can host your brunch outdoors.
I like to send my guests home with party favors. A little thank you for coming. Since this was an Easter brunch I picked up some inexpensive plastic eggs, filled them with lip glosses, bunny ring pops and nail polishes. Then I hid the eggs in my flower pots.
For this Easter brunch I used a table linen, cake plate, serving pieces and glasses I already owned. The items I bought were party decor, food, drinks, paper plates, (you could use your own to save money), plastic eggs and small favors. By only inviting 3 friends over I kept the cost down and ended up spending about $35.
If you throw an Easter brunch I'd love to hear about it. Leave me a comment and let me know.
