Cornstarch-stuffed creations and obnoxiously bright decorations may make for a kid-friendly holiday, but if there are no young ones running around this Sunday, you may opt for an adult afternoon complete with pretty cocktails and muted palettes.

We’ve collected some ideas that inspire us to create a simple, yet sophisticated Easter brunch.

Everything lifestyle blogger, Julie Blanner does, looks effortless. Her easter table from last year (and this year, too!) is no exception.

Julie’s muted color palette keeps the celebration mature, but comfortable. The freshness of her design certainly lifts the spirit and channels the feelings of rebirth and resurrection of our hearts, mind and Mother Nature.

Here are a few of our favorite details from her tablescape. The centerpiece is especially lovely, relaxed but purposeful.

Laura Zindel’s china dinnerware sets are always stunning. For this celebration, her Woodland collection would be especially timely and would sit beautifully atop the table Julie has curated.

Keeping it fresh and interesting is always easier with a beautiful fruit cocktail to start the day off. We were especially intrigued by Martha Stewart’s Little Rose Spring Cocktail. This milky, rosy mixture of Sauvignon Blanc, Muscatel and grapefruit juice is pleasing to both the eye and the taste buds. image

Brunch food is simply the best.

And when it comes to clean eating, Katie Ferrell of the Dashing Dish knows her stuff. These brunch recipes will make you feel good and remain guilt free.

 While being around friends and family is the most important part of every holiday, it certainly doesn’t hurt to enjoy one another in a beautiful space. 

Happy Easter All,
