Moss and Bunnies Inspired Easter Morning Brunch

What age does Easter stop being fun? Is it when you too old to be invited to the egg hunts? Or when you realize that you can get Reese’s year round, they just aren’t shaped like eggs?

Living in Florida, we have a very short month or two (January and February, MAAAYYYBE a little of March) where we don’t need to run the air condition, and it’s actually pleasant to go outside. I consider that both winter and spring for us. Kind of like a two for one season! You can imagine the number of Easter egg hunts I grew up with where there were mosquitoes out in full force, or the sun had already melted the chocolate, even early in the morning. Sure, as a kid it was fun and what did we care there was chocolate; but in retrospect I find myself wondering what an Easter up north would be like.

I expect there would be lots of fresh, colorful flowers that would be welcomed after a proper winter. And, of course, somehow everyone would have cute, moss covered bunnies around, because what else would you decorate for spring with, right? Mostly I just really want to decorate my home with them, but they always seem so out of place. So I thought it would be a great combination for this week’s party idea board to mix the softly textured moss bunnies, with vibrant yellow elements, found in the daffodil table décor and napkins. The moss covered rabbits are adorable, aren’t they?

Here’s what I had in mind:

Bird’s Nest Inspired Easter Morning Brunch

Welcome!

Today I have a sweet treat for you: I’ve put together a spring inspiration board, perfect for your Easter brunch. It must have been from all of the time I spent on last week’s speckled egg inspiration board, but I felt like I really needed to share an inspiration board as fresh as the meaning of spring, with pops of color, and perfect for Easter. It was when I saw this adorable bird’s nest cake on Pinterest that I knew I had to go with this theme. I’ve even included it in my inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:
