We are so excited to share this fun, Easter brunch shoot that we did, featuring puppies! This was featured on Inspired by This and the idea behind the table was to create a festive, colorful table for the season that is fit for entertaining family and friends alike! Because most of us around here consider our dogs to be family, we also included them in the design concept because let's face it, they're dining with us at every meal anyways!
We are sharing two entertaining concepts today. We designed these for Easter but they can easily be translated into any spring soirée that you are putting together throughout the season. The first is what I'd like to call a "Bohemian Rhapsody Easter Table" that's a fun and casual table for guests to dine around. (*See a more casual, buffet style brunch inspiration below that is totally kitchen goals!) We created this table using two planks of wood that we stained and propped up against wooden blocks (you can use cement blocks as well). We then threw a rug underneath it and put pillows around the table for seating. Because spring is often synonymous with joy and happiness, we wanted to use bright, sherbert colors such as peaches and pinks to pop against the navy blue base of the table. We added additional texture to the table by custom creating our napkins by choosing a beautiful print and mixing and matching glassware for added depth.
Since we want our pups to feel special as well for Easter and Spring, we created a bar cart of treats for the pups so that they can feel special and included too!
Our second concept is to show you how to re-create a simplified version of this brunch idea by creating a buffet station using your kitchen! Utilize your counter space and shelving to create a visually beautiful display of your food for guests to help themselves to. Set stacks of plates and napkins for guests to grab, and casually place your flatware in a container or glass for guests to help themselves to. To make the design of the space feel more festive, add some small compotes of flowers and add additional decor items (in this case, framed prints of bunnies, dog photos, etc.) to make your buffet station come to life!
We hope that you enjoyed these entertaining ideas for Easter and for Spring! Happy entertaining from all of us here and from our pups too!
