Easter Brunch Table Setting | Anthony & Stork | April 2014
This Spring I escaped the extremely warm valley heat and spent a week in the Quad Cities. My college girl friend Holly, recently gave birth to her third child so I went to visit, help with the nursery and photograph her family.
Since I would’nt be there for Easter Sunday, we decided to have a pre-Easter brunch. I designed a table settings for her family and few friends to joined us. I was inspired by my dear friend Pamela Benson. Years ago, she hosted a simple yet wonderful Easter Brunch. She had Robin’s Egg blue dishes and centered in the middle of each plate sat a little yellow duck cookie. Her succulent Eggs Benedict recipe and fresh Daffodils at the center of the table really made it an unforgettable afternoon.
I added a little yellow chick (not edible) because it was reminded me of cheer, sunshine and laughter. My hope was that the subtle hints of warm colors and playful plaques would leave the guests with the same feeling.
From our family to yours, Happy Easter.
