We hosted an Easter brunch yesterday which was quite festive and fun. Surprisingly the weather was very warm, in the 70's and all the trees and plants are in bloom in Brooklyn. What a nice celebration of spring.
I cut some flowering pear branches from the tree outside for some last minute arrangements.
I decorated eggs this year with a wax stylus, traditional Paas dyes and a few darker Ukranian dye colors. I drew freehand patterns and also made "placecards" using eggs for each person attending. The stylus is a little tricky to make perfect lines, so I decided to embrace the wobbly lines and more organic look.
Each person got a hard boiled egg with their name on it, to eat then or take home.
I was happy to set the table using my LuRay dishes which I think looked very Eastery in the pastel shades.
Our friend Katie brought a nice assortment of cheeses and made these cute labels for them.
All in all, a nice afternoon. Sorry I didn't get any shots with the actual people, it's always a whirlwind once the party starts when you are hosting. Hope everyone had a nice Passover or Easter!
