NATURAL SCANDINAVIAN

 

Scandinavian design is trending in home design and interior decor. The idea is to pair natural elements such as stone, wood and glass with soft spring accents such as feathers, flowers, eggs and twigs. This charming style is both simplistic and elegant.

While the kids are enjoying the annual Easter Egg Hunt, adults can enjoy brunch cocktails such as a fun interactive Mimosa Bar or Bloody Mary Bar. Set out Different types of champagne and various infused vodkas (now a days you can find infused vodkas flavored with bacon, horseradish, and pepper), and include fun mixers such as fresh nectars, fruits, and savor toppings like olives, cured bacon, and various hot sauces. Cheers!

 

 

 

MODERN MINIMALISM 

 

Traditionally Easter is a holiday full of colorful spring decorations, but for those who want to go with a modern look, they are in luck because neutrals such as camel, white and even black are trending for Easter 2016. Black and White eggs decorated in intricate patterns add to the look, while accents of rough wood, twine and even concrete add an industrial and

raw spin to the design. 

 

HOSTING TIP:

 

Playful food is a fun and unique way to entertain this Easter. Examples include serving hashbrown eggs benedict baskets that are a total show-stopper when displayed on your Easter buffet or as a single plated dish. The eggs are cooked directly into the hashbrown "baskets" that we form with homemade hashbrowns. Top them off with a creamy hollandaise sauce for the perfect accent.  

 

 

 

CHARMING VINTAGE

 

When we think charming vintage we think shabby chic. Blend fabrics such as lace, velvet or even burlap with vintage paper, decoupage eggs, and crystal highlight the look. Other fun items to use in your decor include nests, feathers, and porcelian animal figures.
