Darling Vintage Easter Brunch {+ Printables}

Vintage Shabby Chic Easter Brunch

We’re loving the charming, shabby chic vibe of this vintage-style “Breakfast and Bunnies” brunch hosted by Julia of In Good Company, a fabulous party design & decor company based in South Africa.

There’s lots of darling {and simple!} DIY inspiration here, such as glass soda bottles embellished with paper doilies, place settings adorned with bunny-shaped sugar cookies, and cute little chalkboard signs to help guide guests to the table.  Added bonus: Julia also generously sent over a bunch of beautiful and FREE “Vintage Easter” party printables that coordinate with this look – including party circles, place cards, invitations, bunny ears/nose, and pennant banner. {Find links to download everything at the bottom of this post.}

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Julia

The theme was Breakfast & Bunnies. We set the scene for a morning of merriment (and a brunch that would work for guests of all ages) with fresh air, fading blooms and lots of sun-dappled colors. I choose decorations that were easy to set up and child-friendly: a Hello Hanna paper wishing tree, bright melamine dishes and gingham napkins, then served a traditional English breakfast with warm hot cross buns.

It was as much fun to hide eggs and candies as it was to later help guests seek the sweet treasures we nestled in the lawn and at the bases of tree trunks! For an alternative to baskets, fill pretty paper cups with colorful paper grass and personalize each one with a gift tag. The baskets, once filled with collected treats, can double as favors to be given to guests to take home.”

siera SAYS:

I have a question – how do you cut the printables out? Especially the bunny nose and ears? Is there a way to do it with a silhouette or does it have to be done by hand??

I love your chalkboard signs. I am thinking they would be great cues in the back yard for my grandkids who are too young to really understand the “hunting” part of an Easter Egg hunt.

So gorgeous!

KandyOh SAYS:

We could have used those “this way” and “that way” chalkboard signs today… something we’ll need to keep in mind next year. Super cute way to dress up the yard + make the egg hunt more festive.
