After a long winter, spring has finally sprung and everything feels new and hopeful again! Easter is the pinnacle of the season and it’s truly a time to celebrate! When putting together an elegant Easter luncheon, I look for what is fresh and fun at my local market. For my centerpiece I chose field daffodils and curly willow, because the sunny yellow color is invigorating. I love this bread board I got from Blue Ocean Traders. I think it has an industrial chic vibe. I surrounded the flowers with tea lights in mercury glass vessels. I think the centerpiece sets a fun mood! I love to gather together with my family to celebrate the fun times that are soon approaching!
I chose to start with a simple Pear and Pistachio Salad. I think this is a light and tasty first course!
For the second course, I chose to serve a Spinach and Artichoke Galette. This is a modern take on a quiche, and incorporates the fresh flavors of spring. The presentation is really fun too!
I always feel like a celebratory cocktail is a festive addition to a party menu! This Blackberry Lemonade Cocktail doesn’t disappoint!
Here is hoping that your spring is as full of hope and promise as possible!!
