Easter is a very special holiday for my family, as it is for so many families, a time of celebration, togetherness and renewal. Our Easter family tradition is to host a colorful brunch, with lots of whimsical fun for the kids, including Easter egg hunts, Easter craft ideas and lots of yummy recipes.
For our Easter brunch, I set the table in Spring hues. Living in Ohio, by the time Easter arrives I’m ready for a bit of color! One of my favorite color combinations right now is yellow and gray. Its classic and lends itself as a beautiful backdrop for all the multi-colored eggs that are sure to grace the day.
We like to make eggs the center, literally of our place setting and dishes. As a mom of two creative boys, we boil and decorate a few dozen eggs each Easter, giving us plenty of extras to display. We also use hollow dyed eggs to make an Easter “flower arrangement” to add to the centerpiece.

We like to feature some of our favorite Easter recipes in our place setting, like this Southern Potato Egg Salad featured - a secret family recipe! Some of our other favorites include the Ham and Cheese Casserole which is perfect for Easter morning, and Egg Salad with Fresh Herbs which can serve as an appetizer or Easter lunch.
Dyeing Easter eggs is always a crowd pleaser, I also have a couple crafts up my sleeve to keep the kids entertained in the Easter season.
This year my kids will be making Easter bunny ears and Easter bunny noses. Collect these items for your kids and let them get crafty. It keeps them entertained while you cook and they’re excited to have their pictures made when the time comes (meaning no unhappy… "gotta get my picture made"… smiles)!
