Need an easy Easter table setting? I have the perfect DIY idea for you, and I bet you have everything that you need on hand. Let’s talk about an Easter bunny napkin fold! An easy way to quickly dress up your table and make it festive for Easter brunch or Easter dinner. All you need is a cloth napkin, an egg and maybe some string, that’s it!
Time and time again I’ve overdone easter brunch for my family. A big, labor-intensive menu, shopping and preparing the day before and spending all morning the day of in the kitchen. It’s no fun.
I love being in the kitchen all day for my clients, cooking a huge spread with all the goodies laid out. That’s what I love most about being a personal chef.
On Easter, I want to enjoy that time with the people I love and be present in the moment. I don’t want to be running around cooking all day and missing all the fun. I want be apart of the fun, eat a good meal, drink a few mimosas and relax at the same time. Yes, you can have it all! So for me, I keep things pretty simple.
What you do you want to serve? Make ahead dishes are the key to your success. I make a great Creme Brûlée french toast that sits overnight in the refrigerator and all you do the morning of is pop inside the oven (I’ll need to put this on the blog one day). Easy as that! Serve with some fresh fruit and some crispy oven baked bacon. You have a delicious brunch!
Now I’m not trying to be a hater on Easter table settings but scrolling through Pinterest they are a little over the top. Your Easter table doesn’t have to be pastel and filled with creepy looking bunnies to be festive. Why all the pink? Honestly, I’ve never been a huge fan of pink and if that’s not your style either maybe this is? I’m keeping this easter table setting inspiration with just enough cuteness, but not going over the top. You know that I’m talking about.
Start with a linen cloth napkin laid out into a flat square on a table, fold the square into a triangle, roll up, starting at the longest section and rolling up to the point. Bend the napkin into a “U,” cross the “ears” over and set the egg at the base. You can tie the bunny ears or just lay on the plate. Look at our photos for examples.
PS make sure you use a hardboiled eggs, that could get messy!
