Easter Brunch Fun with Simply Remarkable

Love brunch? Love Easter even more? Make 2015 the year you throw the best Easter Sunday brunch ever! Whether you choose to focus on faith, family, food or an Easter egg hunt, with tips and table decorations from Simply Remarkable, your family and guests will be in awe at your celebration.

Make It Fun for the Kids – The best way to enjoy brunch yourself is to make sure the kids have something to eat and something to do. If you’re going to set up an egg hunt, do it the night before when the kids are asleep so you can concentrate on finishing your cooking and decorating in the morning.

Make the Table Nice – Easter Sunday brunch is a special occasion. While you may be lacking Easter brunch decorating ideas, we’ve got you covered:

Personalizable gold or silver napkin rings can be re-used for multiple special occasions, and are perfect for both keeping napkins looking nice before use and for marking reserved seats.

If you get brunch catered, if people bring over extra dishes or if you just make a lot of food yourself, table label stands are perfect for labeling dishes and informing guests about said dishes: Are they vegetarian? Gluten Free? Do some include peanuts or other common food allergies?

Chalkboard labels are also re-usable and can be used for a wide variety of labeling needs: from identifying kids’ cups from each other, to labeling cooking supplies and ingredients, to labeling tables and seats to being used as Easter table decorations for identifying guests’ individual meals.

Make Some Food Ahead of Time – When throwing brunch parties, you should ensure you set out everything you need the night before and find a couple of substantial dishes that you can prepare ahead of time. Eggs are a classic for Easter. Consider making deviled eggs, an egg casserole or even a quiche Saturday, before the big day.

Don’t Forget the Music – Some people just aren’t morning people. Aim to create a playlist that is lively but not too brash or heavy. Not really a music playlist person? Asks your guests for their favorites songs or artists and create a combo playlist that everyone is sure to love.

Stay Calm and Have Fun – Remember the point of Easter Sunday brunch is to both celebrate your faith and spend time with those you care about most. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and if something goes wrong, remember: don’t sweat the small stuff!
