Over the next few weeks the hubs-to-be and I will be settling into our new little San Francisco apartment. There are few things that excite me more than decorating a new place and hosting a housewarming brunch but the reality is, most of my dishes will likely still be packed in boxes by the time Easter rolls around.
Being asked to create the ultimate Easter brunch table for Target couldn’t have come at a better time -it’s the perfect excuse to pick up some new dishes for our new apartment!
I’m a huge fan of neutrals and basics -not only in the wardrobe but also on the dining room table. A roll of brown paper makes a great, disposable table cloth for any occasion and creates a rustic look. My table is fairly small so one sheet of a simple, brown wrapping paper did the trick but using two pieces and covering the seam with a simple table runner would certainly work for larger tables.
Any good brunch starts with a good mimosa. I like to fill a couple of creamers with orange juice and let my guests add as much or as little to their bubbly as they like.
A few small accents and pops of color against a neutral background will liven up any Easter table while also minimizing the amount of space those holiday decorations take up in the closet. Ombre eggs perched on ceramic egg cups makes a simple but eye-catching centerpiece.
I used some natural excelsior to create the nests but also balled some up to make these cute bunny ears from paper dinner napkins – one for each guest.
They’re cute and festive but won’t take up any storage space. I’m clearly nervous about the size of our closets in our new apartment, can you tell?
OJ in your mimosas: just a splash or more please?
It’s Time for Springtime.
