Charming Yellow & Blue Easter Brunch for HGTV

Share To:

I recently had the opportunity to style an Easter Brunch for HGTV’s website! It is now published on HGTV {see here!} and I am thrilled to be able to share the photos and details with you! Easter is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to create a colorful and creative gathering. For this shoot, I styled a tablescape, a dessert table as well as a food display {new for me!}. I designed a new Printable Collection called Daisy Garden, and it is now available in the shop. I have been dreaming of a DAISY collection for quite some time and thought that Easter would be the perfect occasion for it. Laura {Laura Winslow Photography} and I brainstormed on colors and ideas and had a fabulous time bringing this theme to life!

A special thank you to my sweet friend, Lindsay of Banner Boutique for letting me borrow some of the fabulous decor from her personal stash!

    So refreshing! I think you need some lemon bars in there too though! Here’s a yummy recipe. http://libberliciouslivedelicious.blogspot.com/2011/04/tangy-lemon-bars-recipe.html

  29. Love the color combination…been busy planning my baby’s nursery in those same colors just waiting for my fabrics to pull it all together. Due in August and am finding even outfits that coordinate with the same colors…funny how that has happened. Just holding onto receipts in case they are wrong about the gender…:)
    So fresh and fun!

  30. Simona Dedek says:

  34. Stephanie says:

    Amazing! I love the honeycomb daisies as a change from the pom. Such a bright & happy shoot.
    I have seen your ‘grass’ planter in a couple of your parties now & am wondering where to find one. I’m hosting my daughter’s 3rd birthday (a garden tea party) in a few weeks & would love to find one like it! I would appreciate your help! Thanks!

  35. OF COURSE I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! You amaze me 🙂
