I get so much joy creating these memories for my family. Below is a guide for creating your own Easter brunch and wonderful memories for your family and friends.

What drinks should I serve for Easter brunch?

For Easter brunch, it’s fun to serve a punch, mimosas, sparkling water and coffee. Just make sure cocktails and coffee are ready to serve when guests arrive. Here are a few of our favorite recipes.

Blood orange mimosas are so easy to make. Serve your favorite champagne and add about 1/4 cup fresh blood orange juice in each glass.

How to Make an Easter Flower Arrangement

Spring flowers are a must for an Easter brunch! You don’t have to be a skilled florist to create a beautiful display. Instead, pick up some spring blooms at your local grocery store or farmers market and place them individually in small glass vases. Line them up down the center of the table for a pop of color!

Tips for Hosting Easter Brunch

Make and prepare as much as you can ahead of time.

Set the table the night before.

For brunch, serve a savory main dish and a sweet side dish like waffles or french toast puffs.

If you don’t have time to make a dessert, Easter candy is always good and pretty on a platter.
