Easter Brunch with Blomma Designs

Brunch.  I think it's my favorite meal!  This year we are particularly excited about Easter because Kiersa is almost 18 months old and she'll be able to participate in the festivities.  I have a feeling she'll be a worthy opponent in an egg hunt!  Her innocence and sweet nature inspired me to want to do something a bit more relaxed this year and fully embrace the stage of life that we're in as a family.  We are officially in "young family" mode, and I have to admit I love it!  So I invited Erica Rose Photography to spend the afternoon with us on Monday capturing a bit of Easter inspiration.

Easter always reminds me of a reawakening of sorts.  Spring is just around the corner and stores are turning over from Winter to Spring.  I love seeing the fresh cut flowers, brighter produce and the ability to walk out of the house without a coat.  For this particular shoot I kept everything easy and accessible.  ALMOST everything you see here was purchased locally.  Simple florals in several colors, an array of pastel, blush and white vases, a rough cut lace runner (yes, rough cut lace is beautiful) and a touch of personalization for the place settings.  There was a bit of crafting creating the paper confetti, straw flags and place setting signs.  All you need is white card stock paper, a printer with ink and good ol' fashioned scissors.  You can find a list of resources for the free printables* I used in my footnotes below.  We also had a bit of fun dying eggs and tying all of the pretty little details together.  I went a bit out of my comfort zone with the bright pink charger plates but I felt the pop of color was a perfect compliment to the white linen napkins and helped pull all of the elements of the table together.  And I can't get away without having a stock of Peeps in my pantry during this time of year.  Someone at our house has a particular fondness of the gooey mallows and it isn't me!  We certainly had fun creating this setting and I hope it inspires you to spruce up your Sunday table.
