I love spring. I think it might just be my favorite season. The sun comes out, the skies are blue and there is a lot of green happening in the garden. It energizes me and totally puts me in the mood to entertain. One of my favorite holidays in the spring is Easter. I love everything about Easter: the reason we celebrate, the spring flowers, the pretty dyed Easter eggs, bunnies, chicks, all the pretty pastel colors, a new Easter outfit (yes, I still buy myself a new outfit!!), and of course the candy the Easter Bunny brings. This year I decided to host a Bunny Brunch before Easter for some of my cute little friends. Now that we are empty nesters and our children aren’t home for a lot of the holidays, I love sharing them with my friends and neighbors. I am so excited about this fun and pretty Bunny Brunch I put together. I loved working with the bunny theme. Having a theme for a party makes things so much easier. I began by starting a Pinterest Board (the beginnings of any good party!). You can check out the board I put together for my Bunny Brunch here. You will find many of the ideas I used and more info about them on the board. What made putting this Bunny Brunch together even easier was that I used Chinet® Cut Crystal® products. I love these products and the fact that they are perfectly coordinated.Not only are the Chinet® Cut Crystal® products convenient because they are disposable but they are also pretty. I also love the flexibility they give me and how they fit in with any color scheme. To add a little more color and interest, I used some scrapbook paper to make mats underneath the plates. How fun to find a cute little bunny under your plate after you’ve cleaned your plate! I used some pink ribbon I had to tie together the cutlery for a little finishing touch. And I bunnified the cups with some little paper ears that I hot glued on and a fluffy pom pom tail. Of course a pink straw was necessary. I was on a real roll with the bunny theme so I created little bunnies with pom pom tails out of the paper napkins. There are directions on how to fold the bunny napkins on Chinet’s Pinterest Board. There are a lot of fun bunny-themed foods you can use for your bunny brunch and you will find lots of ideas on my Pinterest Board for that too. I love the idea of using a Palmier to create bunny ears in your salad. For my centerpiece, I used some of the bunnies in my Easter bunny collection and my white milk glass which I filled with some fun Easter candy. Loving those white chocolate Cadbury eggs!! Create height on your table by using cake stands to stack things on. Use things you already have on hand and make the food you are serving part of the decor. And of course no party table would be complete at my house without some fresh flowers. Using the Chinet® Cut Crystal® product line of matching plates, cups and cutlery helps create a perfectly coordinated table and really saves on the clean up!
