It is no secret that brunch is awesome on any old day. But when you are gearing up for the holiday weekend, it is all about classic Easter brunch ideas. This celebration basically doubles as a warm welcome for spring. After all, it does not officially feel like the new season until Easter comes and goes.
An Easter brunch features all the best things about spring: fresh herbs, sweet fruits, and decadent pastries. It also lets your favorite fancy spring cocktails make an appearance. Sure, you can just make some mimosas and call it a day. But why not give it a fun spin? And then there is the carrot cake and cream cheese frosting, two of the best Easter traditions.
Top it off with an Easter egg hunt and you have got yourself a party. Don’t worry, though — having fun on Easter is not just for the kids. You can also host Easter activities for adults. If you are feeling super festive, throw together some adult Easter baskets. Think alcohol, chocolate, and fresh flowers. Oh, and alcohol.
Personally, I am all about decorating Easter eggs with friends and family. It is a great way to make memories and homemade décor. A day full of crafts, food, and sunshine? Count me in.
