Easter Brunch

Happy Easter!

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.

My Easter table.

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!

I do love the table cloth, with all those sweet dishes and napkin? Yup. Delicious.

I agree, Easter brunch is much nicer than dinner. And easier. And prettier.

I think that crepes would be a perfect meal for our next girls weekend!

Hurrah! I second that motion. With strawberries and cream. Guess that means it needs to happen during strawberry season... :)

June is the month for strawberries on the island :)
