Invite your friends and family to an unforgettable outdoor Easter brunch. Keep the menu healthy and simple with this scrumptious Goat Cheese, Mushroom and Spinach Quiche that swaps traditional high-calorie pie crusts for low-calorie tortillas that bake to a golden crisp and hold up to all the delicious fillings inside.

Set Your Table Outdoors

If you’re lucky enough to have sunny Spring weather, plan to set your table outdoors.

Wild branches work perfectly as rustic center pieces. Take an early morning walk to cut the branches of spring blooms or visit your local floral outlet to see what they have available. Place them length wise down the center of the table, or cut them into various lengths and arrange them into Mason jar bouquets.

No branches nearby to trim? Try using some of your dyed Easter eggs as center pieces instead. Stack them in various glass dishes or arrange in a straight line down the center of the table. They make great conversation starters and instantly add a wonderful splash of Easter color. Visit our Pinterest page for more inspiration.

Make a Morning Beverage Bar

Everyone knows a good party has a bar, but instead of alcohol-laden options, make a morning beverage bar, complete with kettle, mugs, coffee cone filters, and creamer. Stack sugar cubes and fill decorative ramekins with coffee enhancements such as chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg. Place a pile of tiny stirring spoons next to a mason jar marked “used spoons” for your guests’ convenience, and remember to offer a variety of fresh juices and teas for the non-coffee drinkers, too.

Serve a Quintessential Spring Dessert: Fresh Fruit with Homemade Whipped Cream

Keep dessert light and refreshing by offering seasonal fresh fruit with homemade whipped cream. Serve the fruit in a beautiful, large bowl and invite guests to scoop and dollop their own. Homemade whipped cream is incredibly easy to make. Simply place a pint of heavy whipping cream and 2-3 teaspoons of powdered sugar or a few drops of Stevia into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, blend cream until it thickens, adding additional powdered sugar or Stevia drops as you go, to sweeten cream to your satisfaction.
