Easter has never been a holiday that I have formally celebrated. I did hunt for eggs as a child and attended a few church services. We always had a nice dinner. But, it has also been a holiday that I've skipped without remorse; it's not "big" in my mind.
Despite this, I do love the symbolism of Easter and it's associations with spring and renewal. Plus, there are flowers, pastel colours and chocolate. All delightful things!
This year, I decided to have an Easter brunch in place of an Easter dinner. I was not feeling inspired to cook a roasted meat of any kind and the sweet sunniness of brunch seems to suit the holiday perfectly.

I even found a second hand pink tablecloth last week. It is a bit "much" next to my blue walls, but I couldn't resist. I love the collection of second hand finds that I am gathering. There are so many at this table!
Brunch was crepes with a bevy of delicious toppings: bananas, chocolate, whipped cream, raspberries, strawberries, coconut yogurt, maple syrup, lemon and sugar. There was even some local bacon on the side!
A delicious new tradition has been born!
