From casseroles to pastries to pancakes and waffles (perfect for a waffle bar), we are sharing the most popular Easter brunch ideas for you to enjoy this holiday season.

Tips for a Great Easter Brunch

What is a good time to serve brunch? Brunch usually starts between 9 and 10 am. Once you get to 11am you can skip the “br” and just serve lunch. Also, brunch is perfect for a self serve buffet style presentation.

Prep ahead of time: Unlike hosting a dinner, brunch means that you don’t have all day to prepare. Getting things done ahead of time will make the morning go more smoothly. 

  • Get your grocery shopping done early. Not only will you beat the crowds, but you don’t risk the store being out of a needed item.
  • Clean the house 
  • Decorate and set up tables
  • Prep any food items 

The menu

  • Plan the menu a week or two in advance. This will help you when you’re out shopping as well as if people ask to bring a dish. You’ll know exactly what items you want to serve and how they can help.
  • Include both sweet and savory items to the menu as well as both hot and cold items. 
  • Incorporate make ahead items to the menu. See individual posts for more info. 
  • Don’t hesitate to have guests bring a dish, especially a warm dish. Spreading out the making of hot dishes means you can offer more hot dishes with less work on your part.

Finishing touches

Incorporate all the finishing touches that you would use at dinner such as:

  • Food labels
  • Flowers to decorate 
  • Matching palette: Easter usually means pastel colors and floral patterns. Use the palette from serving bowls to table centerpieces. Using a coordinating palette helps all the different elements of a brunch come together. 

Have a space, both indoor and outdoor, for children to play
