Happy April! My friend Katie enjoys entertaining as much as I do. I only wish she were in Boston, instead of Philly, so I could be a regular guest at her table! She is planning an Easter Brunch and was kind enough to send along her ideas.
An EVITE that is adorable and saves time and money
For flowers, Katie's new favorite for spring are ranunculus. They are sweet, colorful and last a long time. Cluster groups in the center of the table in tin vases or mason jars, and then the guests can take them home as favors. Find more arrangement ideas HERE.
For place settings, individual baskets filled with straw, a chocolate bunny and a place card. For the "how to" on this idea go HERE.
Egg decorating can be creative fun for adults too! There are so many great ideas on how to decorate eggs on Martha's WEBSITE. Plan ahead and make sure you have the supplies you need on hand.
For cocktails, a yummy 'bellini' with a dash of pineapple juice, and mango puree. Garnish with fresh raspberries or strawberries for a pop of pink! RECIPE
For brunch, a FRUIT SALAD with lemon curd
HAM QUICHE with asparagus and herbs - it doesn't feel like Easter without the traditional ham!
And Honey Ricotta TURNOVERS that can be made the night before
And the finale, CUSTOM CAKES in the shape of spring chicks - ideal for Easter.
Thanks Katie! I only wish I could be there to join the fun.
