Easter is a warming time of year. The family come together, whether it be for religion or a shared love of chocolate, and welcome new beginnings. Though a traditional roast is still ever so popular, brunch is certainly making waves. So how do you transform your kitchen into the perfect location for an Easter brunch? At Euan Begg Kitchens and Bedrooms, we know a thing or two about getting the most out of your kitchen. So, in the spirit of Easter, we thought we would put together a handy guide to help you plan the perfect Easter brunch!
Creating the mood for your Easter Brunch
The first thing you should do is plan in advance, especially if children are involved! Easter Sunday is quite a busy day, so make sure that you plan your brunch to work well with your family members as they may also be busy. Is it a family-only event or do you want to invite friends? If you’re concerned about arrival times, be sure to create a schedule to ensure everything goes to plan.
To set the tone for the day, decorations can make all the difference. Whether you prefer kitchen items you can use annually or one-off decorations, there are many ways you can bring the joys of spring into your kitchen! You don’t need to stress yourself finding the perfect decorations, it could be something as simple as placing a few spring flowers around the room.
Easter brunch and drinks
When it comes to planning the meal, you don’t need to go overboard. Sometimes, the simplest recipes can be the most effective. Better yet, putting together an Easter themes breakfast buffet will allow your guests to pick and choose what they want. However, don’t forget the hot cross buns!
When it comes to drinks, alcohol is always optional, but nothing goes better with brunch than bucks-fizz (also known as mimosas if you want to sound fancy). Alcohol-free options should always be available. Consider fresh juice, basic tea and coffee, and don’t forget to provide plastic or disposable cups for the children!
Preparing the Kitchen
Last week we discussed decluttering the kitchen for spring, so we highly recommend checking out our tips to give you more space. Ensure everything is clean, all unwanted utensils are put away, and that you have enough crockery for the food you will be serving.
This is the most important thing. Don’t let the stress of planning an Easter brunch get to you. When your guests arrive, remember to breathe a little and simply enjoy the company. After all, Easter is a time for relaxing with friends and family, not rushing!
