After the Easter egg hunt, treat the family to a yummy and festive Brunch. Keep it simple and let everyone serve themselves. But do it with style!
Instead of the usual dinner plate, I used rectangular shaped dishes. For a bold punch of color, fold a napkin in thirds and lay it on the plate under the other dishes. Fill little bird nests with jelly beans (who says you can’t eat dessert first?). Chop sticks are fun and unexpected at an Easter meal.
A roll of orange paper raffia can do double duty for two holidays (Easter and Halloween). I made enough paper carrots to share with a crowd.
Cut a piece of raffia (or heavy duty tissue paper) in a V-shape. Twist the bottom tightly and secure with a glue stick. Fill the carrot with jelly beans and glue the seam. Cut strips of purple raffia, tuck into the opening and tie it together with another piece of orange paper.
No time to dye eggs? Wrap a hard-boiled egg with left over raffia. Or wrap plastic eggs filled with candy for a special treat. I like old torn book pages instead of traditional “grass”.
Create your own colorful holiday table setting for a few dollars and a bit of imagination. I would love to see how your table turned out. Send me photos.
