Easy Easter Brunch


Easy Easter Brunch for Busy Mom's. For more ideas go to FizzyParty.com

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.

Easter brunch can be easy and fun. Get ideas at FizzyParty.com

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.

Party decor can inspire a party theme. To see how visit FizzyParty.com

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.

Party favors don't have to be expensive. Bunny ring pops, lip balms, nail polish are all great ideas. FizzyParty.com

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.

Mardi Gras Dessert Table

Emojinal Mardi Gras Dessert Table 

Welcome back to the second half of the Emojinal Mardi Gras party. Missed the first half? See it here. 
I had too much fun with this party mixing emoji's and Mardi Gras.  When I first had this idea I honestly wasn't sure how the mix of the two were going to really look. But I'm loving it. 

The inspiration for this party came from emoji Mardi Gras beads I saw on the Mardi Gras Outlets Facebook page.  Those beads are the ones around the cake stand, below the cupcakes in this pic.  I saw them and inspiration struck.  I contacted Bella Grey Designs, showed her a pic of the emoji beads and asked if she could create some printables for the party.  

Emojinal Mardi Gras party filled with easy DIY. Get more information over on www.fizzyparty.com

For the cupcakes I asked Fondant Fantasy  to create some Mardi Gras emoji toppers.  I sent her the image of the beads and the printables and she nailed the look.  Instead of cupcake wrappers I took tissue paper and cut them to make them fringy. Then I just taped the ends together so it would stay around the cupcake.  I made the cupcake wrappers this way to match the float.

I spotted these M & M emoji candies during Valentine's at Target and I HAD to have them.  I knew I was going to be creating this emojinal Mardi Gras party and that these M  & M's would be gone out of the store right after Valentine's so I bought them as soon as I saw them.

Mini Coca-Cola bottles are ready to party it up Mardi Gras style.  I again took tissue paper and fringed it up to match the cupcake wrappers and parade float.  I then added the emoji Mardi Gras beads which were the inspiration for this party and added yellow stripped straws.

I love to nestle my cookies in a bed of something. Licorice sticks, sprinkles, sanding sugar or CandyFetti.  This emoji mix from Sweets Indeed was perfect for this party.  The colour just pops under the cookies and the mix comes with little sugar emoji faces.

Every time I order cookies from Creating Awesomenessity  I squeal with delight. She nails it every.single. time.  These cookies just make me smile.

Mardi Gras float coming through.  I wanted a unique way to display the emoji Mardi Gras cookies.  I wanted to show them having fun.  Mardi Gras is known for their parade floats so I created one and placed the cookies inside.

To create the float you'll need:

  • Shoe box
  • Tissue paper
  • Double stick tape
  • Beads
  • Cookies 
I cut tissue paper into strips that would cover the shoe box.  I fringed the tissue paper stripes with scissors, leaving a little bit at the top unfringed. Then I just added double stick tape to the back of the tissue paper where it was unfringed and stuck it to the box. Once I had the whole box covered with fringed tissue paper, I wadded up a couple sheets and stuffed them inside the shoe box. I draped the beads around the shoe box and gently placed the cookies on top the wadded up tissue paper I had placed inside the shoe box.

You didn't think I forgot the Hurricane's did you? It's just not Mardi Gras without them. Because I like Hurricane's I already had the glasses on the hand.  I wrapped them with more Mardi Gras beads and added an emoji sticker I found at Michael's.
