Throwing an Easter Brunch #BunniesWhoBrunch

Entertaining, EventsLibby RasmussenComment

It's not every day you get to host a brunch for 30 of your closest friends. Last weekend, I had the absolute best time throwing a #BunniesWhoBrunch Easter celebration at Kellari Taverna here in DC! 

This was definitely an occasion where I owed a lot of my creative thinking to Pinterest. I found the most adorable Garden Party and Easter Brunch ideas.

I snagged the adorable #BunniesWhoBrunch rabbit cut-out idea from Miss Mustard Seed. Next time, I must make them wit the roses and carnations. They are too too cute.

Above all else, I absolutely loved the Free Printable Wreath Name Cards courtesy of Eleven Magnolia Lane.  It was so easy using the template and PicMonkey to write my guests' names. The best part of all, was finding these adorable Bunny Place Card Holders from BHLDN. They couldn't have been more perfect for the theme. 

I had originally planned to get these circular moss placemats, but unfortunately, they wouldn't have shipped in time.  These cabbage placemats from Pier 1 are just as perfect. 

In addition to their own wreath name cards and rabbit cut-outs, each guest had their own scallop egg cup with a hot pink hard boiled egg.  Tip: Here is a great article on the Science of Dying the Perfect Easter eggs.  Also, for those wondering, baking soda gets the dye right off your hands. 

For the centerpieces, I used a variety of vase heights and flowers to create a different look for each table. Apothecary jars were filled with water and twisted pink tulips. White hydrangeas were paired with cherry blossom branches in tall vases.  Pink spray roses and white tulips were used to add both softness and dimension.  

In addition to the floral arrangements, I found these adorable moss rabbit figurines (similar) in the $1 section for well, $3 but a steal nonetheless!  Large, medium, and small moss balls were added to the tables for whimsy. Last but not least, the stacked teacup candlestick holders from Zara Home really tied everything together.  

 

Happy Easter Everyone!
