Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, especially at holiday time. I love to gather family and friends for a leisurely brunch on an important day, like Easter. Afterwards, everyone has plenty of time to head to the next party. This table setting is perfect for Easter, but works for any spring weekend.
Square plates are a modern alternative to traditional round dinner plates. I layered a round salad plate with a green print and tied them both up with a pretty pink ribbon. Make sure the loops of the bow look like bunny ears.
I happen to have a bushel basket full of springs cut from a vintage (think really old) bedspring. If you can’t find springs, look for something unusual to display Easter eggs.
I colored my hard-boiled eggs in a bath of hot, hot water, a tablespoon of white wine or distilled vinegar and a few drops of food coloring.
To personalize each, I cut out letters from magazines and glued them to the eggs.
I nestled each egg in a little nest made from moss (you can find it in a package at a craft store) atop each spring. Appetizer and place card wrapped up in one!I lucked out when I found the bunny pitcher at Goodwill for $3.99. I tucked in a napkin, but it really needs a big bouquet of tulips.
