My family often celebrates Easter at brunch time. It seems we can't wait for dinner, and since eggs are such a big part of Easter, it just works! I decided to give you a little vintage easter brunch inspiration this year!  I have always been a sucker for beautiful vintage pieces, but lately I have been obsessed with vintage {a little hint for you for my upcoming wedding!}.  And since we were doing vintage, my wonderful photographer and I thought it would be super cool to take some shots with FILM! Haven't heard that word in a long time huh?!! Can you guess which pics were from film? I think it gives this shoot such an authentic vintage feel.  To create this same look at home, see the bottom of the post to find out what I did!

{Dessert Buffet}
I think easter calls for a light springy look. I wanted to capture that with a twist of vintage for the entire look but especially for the dessert buffet.  To accomplish this, I made sure to use pastel colors with a mostly white backdrop ... and then I threw in the vintage trinkets from there.  I used my {Classic} Easter/Spring Printable Collection to create the color palette for the table, and then the desserts I chose took the color up one more notch. From the macarons to the white chocolate popcorn to the coconut cake, these desserts are as delicious as they are easy on the eyes! Trust me when I tell you that! Try them sometime to see for yourself, but be careful ... they are addicting! The tablecloth (aka quilt) is from Target.  I love the texture and volume it gives to the scene.  I'm a big fan of repurposing things around the house for celebrations!  To frame up the "Happy Easter" and "Hop to Dessert" prints I used a couple of rustic white frames from Pottery Barn that I had laying around the house.  I think any white frames would create the same feel for the table.  The apothecary jars are from Michaels, but I borrowed them from my sister. Again, it's all about being resourceful!  I made the centerpiece by stacking two candle holders on top of one another and then a vase on top of that.  The vase is from Michaels.  The poms are from Michaels as well, and the bunting is from Target.  The mason jars and the other vintage pieces belonged to my grandmother.

{Dining Table}
I covered the table first with a white sheet.  I then overlayed ivory tulle back and forth across the table. For the table setting, I made the placemats out of kraft packaging paper and a strip of lace.  The plates and serving dishes belonged to my grandmother, and I picked up the glasses from Goodwill!  Goodwill is the best!  The cake stand is from Target ... are you seeing the theme here? Lol!

I baked individual Continental Casseroles for the main dish. As a take-home gift for the guests, I used my {Chevron} Easter Custom Holiday Recipe Cards!  The recipe for the Continental Casserole was inside, and it tears off for the guests to keep! Check out below for the recipe and other delicous eats!
