Easter Brunch Celebration from Alea Lovely + Julie Blanner
March 26, 2013
There are two things that never fail to capture my attention: delicious food and bald babies. And this Easter themed brunch just so happens to have both en masse. Bunny shaped cinnamon rolls, fruit filled sugar cones and a casual, yet elegant, tablescape in soft hues is all you need to really make this holiday shine. Designed by Julie Blanner and beautifully captured by our beloved Alea Lovely, this particular shoot is filled with inspiration overload of the very best kind. Don't miss the rest of the gallery!

From Julie Blanner... Hosting Easter brunch doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, it can be the easiest meal to host because so much can be prepared the night before. That's why I included brunch favorites like monkey bread, cinnamon rolls and gooey butter {an irresistible breakfast danish}. Fruit displayed in sugar cones are quick to prepare and are easy for guests to enjoy. A signature cocktail, like this peach champagne punch, also makes for easy entertaining. Hard boiled eggs dyed in the softest blue and natural brown eggs served as decor in apothecary jars, the centerpiece and as place cards. Coordinating blue china complimented the decor. The centerpiece was created using a wooden cheese box, from our local grocery store, filled with eggs and tulips. It was so simple, but added a ton of texture and interest to the table.

Rather than just having a kids' table, I had a kids' party, including bunny shaped cinnamon rolls. An Easter basket held the sugar cookie favors and a simple DIY banner made of ribbons and card stock letters acted as the banner. A family heirloom lamb was a sweet addition to the space, and ended up being Anistons favourite. Bunny shaped place cards were adorned with fresh ranunculus. The girls enjoyed their cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies with milk served in recycled Starbucks bottles with strawberry flavored straws {picked up, once more, at the grocery store}.
