timeline for easter brunch

Creating and hosting a memorable Easter brunch is a fabulous treat. Enjoying the process, planning and preparation as well as a delicious meal, coming together with friends and family sounds wonderful. And accomplishing it without having your hair on fire is quite do-able if you use a timeline (below). For me, the key is doing whatever I can in advance, so that I don’t feel rushed at the last minute. My motto is: whatever you can make ahead — DO IT! And don’t feel badly choosing purchased prepared foods as another option if necessary. But having fun is not an option — it is a requirement!

To complete your menu, you might add simple fruit skewers, which are more festive than a compote, and a lively brunch cocktail. Find the  recipes here:
