Whether you are celebrating Easter, Passover or just the long awaited arrival of springtime, you probably have plenty of reasons to host a Sunday brunch for friends and family this season. If you’ve been following along here for a bit, you may know that Easter is my all-time favorite holiday of the year. And when I say favorite, I mean I love everything about it. Giant stuffed bunnies, blooming flowers by the bunch, pastel pink and butter yellow everything, the baskets and bows and kids of all ages decked out in their Sunday best.

And of course the chocolate bunnies. Can’t forget about those sweet chocolate bunnies.

Easter is the perfect time to gather around the table and celebrate all things spring with those near and dear. I’ll be sharing lots of delicious brunch recipes here on the blog all month long that you won’t want to miss. But before you begin to plan your menu, let’s talk about a few of my favorite things for a beautiful Easter brunch. Because let’s be honest…while the food should be cooked to perfection, Easter brunch isn’t all about the quiche.

These are a few of my favorite kitchen and entertaining essentials, many of which are favorites of mine all year long. Nothing sponsored here, just a collection of things I love. I hope you find a thing or two to help you deck out your table for the most wonderful Easter brunch.

1. DIY Flower Arrangements

Is it even Easter without flowers? I think not. Whether you are setting the table for guests or picking up a bundle for your hostess, flowers are synonymous with Easter. DIY {as in, you got this!} is the only way to go when it comes to decorating your home and table with flowers. You can easily spruce up any table setting with a bushel of fresh cut flowers in simple glass or ceramic vases. I’m a big fan of hydrangeas and while there are so many blooms to choose from at springtime, I always opt for white flowers with a splash of color to play off the pastel hues of the tablescape. Trader Joes has beautiful bunches of hydrangeas available every day and you can’t beat the price. Pro tip: you can order flowers ahead at all Trader Joes’s stores so you can avoid the rush on blooms when the store opens. Genius.

2. Emile Henry 5-Piece Ruffled Bakeware Set

Emile-Henry-Ruffled-Bakeware-Set

This timeless collection of bakeware from Emile Henry offers lots of options for baking up everything from casseroles, quiches, pies, breads and cinnamon rolls. I just love the classic look of these ceramic pieces and the ruffled edge is oh-so pretty. This bakeware is ultra durable and the ceramic retains heat well which will help keep your beloved frittata warm at the table while your guests are enjoying that second mimosa. They are perfect for serving your favorite dishes straight from the oven to the table. Plus they are microwavable so heating up those Easter brunch leftovers for dinner is a cinch. While the collection is a bit pricey, plan to keep these handcrafted pieces as an heirloom to hand down to your kids.

 

3. Pastel Linen Napkins, Set of 4

Linen is always a classic and these simple napkins from Sur la Table are perfect for both formal entertaining and everyday dining. They are 100% linen and are pre-washed for a relaxed feel. They come in a wide range of colors to choose from to match any decor. The butter yellow and pastel pink are two of my faves for spring. Another timeless addition to any kitchen. Pro-tip: seasonal colors often go on sale so act fast and stock up.

4. Milk Glass Scalloped Cake Stand from Hearth & Hand, Magnolia Collection

I adore milk glass and every Easter tablescape needs a touch of pink. This scalloped cake stand is a gorgeous way to show off your favorite baked goods. And the best part is that it’s from Target. Does it get any better? There are several other equally impressive pieces in this collection so be prepared to fill your cart!

5. Stoneware Juice Pitcher

At our annual Easter brunch the mimosas are flowing before our annual backyard croquet tournament. This pitcher is a pretty and practical way to display juice and water at your table or buffet. It’s neutral enough to go with any decor and large enough that you won’t be refilling it every other minute. This pitcher adds a sophisticated touch and I love the old world style.

6. Nordicware Anniversary Crowne Bundt Pan

I recently heard a well known baker declare this the year of the bundt. Now that’s an idea I can get behind! I’m a big fan of a pretty little bundt cake. They are easy to make, delicious to eat and they always look beautiful fresh out of the pan. This petite bundt pan design from Nordicware takes the cake! I have a little collection of bundt pans growing in my pantry {it’s becoming a bit of a thing} and this beautiful design is my go-to for all special occasions. And for Easter, decorating your table with dessert is a must.

7. Chocolate Truffle Robin Eggs, Set of 6

Another must have for Easter Sunday. I love to treat my guests to a bit of chocolate and these truffle eggs are as delicious as they are adorable. Your basic chocolate bunny got a major upgrade with these precious speckled eggs. They are almost too cute to eat. You can dress up each table setting with a box of these chocolate eggs or place them in a basket by the door for your guests to grab on their way out. Don’t forget to get one for yourself!

8. Porcelain Egg Crate

This is a pretty little way to store those hand dyed Easter eggs you worked so hard on the night before Easter Brunch. It’s sturdy, yet pretty enough to display on the table or buffet. I use these year around to store eggs in the fridge so they are easy to grab and go. Pro tip: looks pretty in photographs too.

9. Breville No Mess Waffle Maker

Breville-no-mess-waffle-maker

A fun Easter brunch idea for big and little kids alike is a waffle bar. Set up a waffle station complete with this Breville No Mess Waffle Maker {trust me, not even the kids can mess this up}, syrup, whipped cream, berries and chocolate chips and let your guests go to town. This waffle iron makes the most delicious, golden brown waffles every time. And clean up is a breeze!

10. Marble Three Tier Server

Williams-Sonona-Marble-Three-Tier-Server

This versatile and practical three tier server is the perfect place to park your freshly baked scones, muffins, mini cakes and cookies. It’s a real space saver and can be used again and again for all of your entertaining needs. Pretty enough to leave out on the countertop everyday, this server is a brilliant addition to any kitchen.
