Easter is observed on the 1st Sunday following spring's first full moon; hence the early date this year. The only thing looking somewhat Springy in my yard .......the green grass. :) Nothing blooming at all....but exactly two daffodils. Even the forsythia isn't blooming or the ornamental trees. What this means is, I had a hard time deciding on the theme for our Easter brunch table. Family and neighbors are coming on Saturday. Wish you were too!
Not wanting to buy flowers but using what I had, I decided to go with a woodsy garden theme. My plan was to use actual grass sod as a runner down the table, but my local garden store hadn't gotten any in yet, so I went with natural dried green moss.
I incorporated a beautiful vintage runner I found at a yard sale last summer. It must have 8 inches of gorgeous hand made lace at each end. This gave softness to the rustic theme.
Another yard sale find were these old wooden eggs. I love them with the faded moss.
In keeping with the garden theme, I filled a flower pot "planted" with the utensils. Carrots! Green forks and spoons wrapped in orange napkins (left over from Halloween) and tied with green ribbon. I did something a little different with my setting. With a large group coming and serving buffet style, I usually put the plates and utensils on the side table or at the end of the buffet table but this time I decided to incorporate them right into the table centerpiece, putting the plates on a pretty pedestal cake plate.
I said earlier, I was going to put the Easter bunny tail truffles I made for dessert right in the middle of the real grass but I changed my mind. Instead using some of my altered eggs I made last year. I like it! :)
Easter favors for my guests. A sweet surprise in sweet bunny boxes.
