Setting the Table: A Bright Easter Brunch

Purple & Green Easter Brunch

Is it really possible that Easter is this weekend? Time is flying, we are welcoming sunshine (and warm weather!) with open arms, and the first week of spring will be in the books. Before hitting the road for the holiday, I wanted to host a simple Easter brunch. This year, I’m all about keeping it fuss free, minimal, and sophisticated.

Grapefruit Mimosas for Easter Brunch

Having a green dining room already lends itself to coordinating well with a spring palette. I decided to keep the dishes bright white with clean lines, while adding lavender accents. The purple and green feel so fresh.

Since the palette is super neutral, I’m a big fan of adding pattern. It makes things more interesting and adds depth. My upholstered dining chairs compliment playful dotted napkins in a way that I was probably too excited about. The watercolor place tags were a quick (and last minute) DIY that brought a bit more color to the white linen tablecloth.

Setting the Table: A Bright Easter Brunch

I’ve been obsessed with Breuer dining chairs for quite some time and the cane backs were made for this moment! The warm wood and pattern accents the spring tablescape so perfectly, allowing the tiniest bit of light to shine through.

What do you guys think of the brass flatware? I contemplated bringing it out because the chairs have a shiny chrome base, but I think it works well.

I wanted everything to feel fresh and light, yet inviting. Once the table was set, it was time to enjoy grapefruit mimosas, good food, and best of all- great company. Spring is that time of year where everything is new and beautiful again. I’m looking forward to longer days and cramming in more of these moments!

    I love a neutral table, especially one that still feels classic and a little fun. This is lovely. Great Gold flatware too.

    Wondering why you put the glasses on the left sides of the plates? Lovely table, btw.

      Funny you should ask!! I wondered if anyone would notice… during the shoot, a glass was reflecting and causing lens flare, so I traded the side. Then it bothered me that they weren’t consistent, so I moved all the glasses (and totally forgot to put them back after that one shot). Ha!

    I love the brass flatware. It’s the first thing that caught my eye. Very beautiful set up. I need to do more fun girly brunches with my ladies. Happy Easter!
