My top tips for an Easter breakfast to make the long weekend a bit more special. Hopefully it inspires you to have your own!
Decorate the table
I've decorated this table with the tablecloth and table runner from my spring range to add instant colour and impact. See my range of table linens here.
Bunches of daffodils are everywhere at this time of year and look great in milk bottles or vintage vases. This fun daisy bottle was from this etsy seller.
I love to use anything yellow, including the little vintage chick egg cup, which I've filled with chocolate eggs.
Primulas potted in vintage tea cups look really pretty and you can plant them in your garden after Easter. I just searched Ebay for mismatched floral cups and found loads of great ones.
Or for a more subtle update, I designed these spring flower placemats and coasters too. All my designs are made using paper collages! See my range of printed wooden placemats and coasters here.
I made easy but special Easter pancakes by adding smashed up mini eggs into an American pancake recipe.

You just need to smash an 80g packet of mini eggs (about 20) using a rolling pin, then fold them into the batter before cooking.
Another option would be to cut open some croissants and add a thin layer of marzipan to each one before warming them in the oven!
Obviously coffee is an essential for breakfast, but I wanted to make it a bit more easter. And as it's a special occasion, why not add chocolate? I broke a milk chocolate easter egg into large shards and put them into vintage tea cups on the table.
Then you just pour over hot espresso and frothed milk, watch it melt and stir! And for kids you can leave out the espresso and have it as a hot chocolate.
Or if you're more of a tea drinker, why not try a special loose leaf tea in a tea pot for a special treat. For a delicious cuppa, I recommend some from Bird and Blend. They have some limited edition flavours for Easter like 'Cream Egg' and 'Hot Cross Bun'. I personally love all of their Rooibos teas which have such a nice flavour and are naturally caffeine free whilst still feeling like a normal cup of tea. My favourite is called 'Breakfast's ready honey'
