Breakfast Finger Foods make the perfect Easter Brunch. Excited kids who just want to eat chocolate can have a little of what they like, and grown-ups have an excuse to try everything and come back for more of what they love. Today I’m excited to share this Easter Finger Foods Brunch as the first post in our Year of Feasting!
Last year I got intentional about connecting with friends and family and hosted a party a month –read all about how my year went here. It was truly a great experience, so this year I invited my blogging friends to join in with me. I’m joined by 11 other Canadian Bloggers who all wanted to focus on inviting others into our hearts and homes this year for a whole year of feasting. We’ll all be hosting special feasts for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. We invite you to join in too and be intentional this year about hosting friends and family, and connecting and reconnecting with those you love. Be sure to check out all the other parties at the end of the post.
For this party, I chose a Friday morning and invited over some of my blogging friends. We had the best time! It was a morning of making some really great connections, and so much encouragement and celebrating each others success.
Let me share the details of the pretty and easy tablescape with you. I wanted to keep things a little more casual so I set everything up in the kitchen, rather than the dining room. It made the get together feel more laid back and put my guests at ease as soon as they arrived.
The table is a pretty combination of spring pastels. I started out with the pretty water colour floral pillows from Giant Tiger -it’s a great one stop shop for decor and food.
They have a few different colour combinations -I went with the white and soft greeny-blue. The pillows set the tone for the rest of the tablescape. Giant Tiger has a great selection of Easter candy, so I thought it would be fun to use as decor in pretty mason jars on the table -and for my guests to nibble on throughout the party.
I used a simple runner on the table and layered on a piece of linen. I didn’t want the table to be too sweet, so I felt like the more rustic linens, and un-ironed napkins kept it a bit more rustic.
The primroses are also from Giant Tiger, and so spring like. I thought they looked pretty wrapped in some moss and in these lanterns.
I also used these pretty vintage little bowls, perfect for our Granola Cereal Buffet. It’s always fun incorporating some vintage treasures.
To make things causal and easy I set up the food in a little buffet, so guests could help themselves.
I wanted to do breakfast foods, but all finger food size for ease.
So I set up a everything on my little side cabinet.
Since it was breakfast, sausage and eggs seemed essential. So, I picked up some frozen mini quiche and ordered some mini sausage rolls from my local bakery. They were so good.
Since it’s Easter, I also ordered some hot cross buns. I offered guests butter, jam, and cheese to go with them.
I also picked up a some mini cinnamon rolls and made some easy turnovers. When I was making the turnovers I cut them in half so they’d be mini size too.
And then, just for fun, I made some of my little Chocolate Mousse Easter Eggs -find the recipe here.
They’re really the perfect sweet little treat for Easter.
It was great having all these breakfast finger foods off to the side so that guests could help themselves as we chatted away.
I also set up a fun little granola bar using my bar cart to hold lots of yummy toppings.
I made some of my famous homemade granola -find the recipe here.
Along with the granola, there was some fresh fruit, greek yogurt, honey, and some special toppings.
I used some little mason jars to serve some coconut, raisins, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips.
I think my guests loved the granola bar the most.
It truly was so much fun having a blogger meet up, and I think my guests had a good time too since my brunch lasted most of the day. A sure sign of a good party is lingering guests.
With an Easter Finger Food Brunch for a Spring Feast, life really is a party!
