There’s more to Easter brunch than food glorious food. To help create a memorable Easter celebration for family and friends we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to hosting Easter brunch.
From creating a breathtaking entrance and baking a show-stopping Easter cake to setting and styling the Easter table just right – here are our tips on how to host the best Easter brunch EVER.
The Easter entrance
From fresh rabbit footprints and sweet chalkboard signs to bucket loads of bunny cuteness right at your doorstep, creating a fun Easter entrance is a cinch. Get the kids on board and ask them how they want to say “Hey, Easter bunny! The party’s this way!”. (image via Thinking About Life)
The Easter decorations
Sprucing up the home with simple Easter decorations brings a burst of colour to the festivities. These could be anything from Easter wreaths hanging on the front door or over the fireplace, vessels filled with colourful Easter eggs dotted around the room or handmade paper crafts hanging from branches the kids found outside.

The Easter table
Whether it’s a sitdown brunch or a casual afternoon of drinks and nibbles, a beautifully set Easter table transforms the celebrations from drab to fab in an instant. Easter table decorations needn’t cost the earth – get creative with folding napkins, try decorating Easter eggs for a homemade centrepiece or mix-and-match the crockery for a charming vintage look.

The Easter food
Easter brunch doesn’t have to be a fancy affair. A handful of stunning yet simple recipes for guests to help themselves to is the easiest (and yummiest) way to ensure Easter brunch is a hit. Place grazing platters in the centre of the table, put together tear-and-share style dips like this or create individual stations for guests to stack their plates.
The Easter Cake
It’s not a real celebration without a jaw-dropping cake. From pretty bunny cream tarts to a classic carrot cake, there are plenty of scrumptious options out there. This chocolate Easter egg nest cake is sure to wow the crowd (as well as pleasing lots of hungry tummies). Just remember to take a photo of your Easter cake before it’s completely demolished.
