Recipe ideas and inspiration for a special Easter feast
Are you looking for inspiration and new ideas for Easter? Even though we may not be able to enjoy a big Easter gathering this year, we can still make it nice for our closest family members. We have gathered a few ideas for table decorations and Easter menus that will add a personal touch to any Easter meal - even if it’s a small group.
Easter Brunch Invitations
With our high-quality cards, you can send unique Easter greetings or invitations to your Easter meal. Everyone loves getting messages from friends and family at Easter time, especially if you cannot visit them. You can choose your favourite from a wide variety of great Easter design templates. how many photos you want to use and which font and colour you want the text to be in. The invitations come in packs of 10 so you will have enough invitations for all of your guests.
Decoration and Present Ideas for Your Easter Brunch
Impress your guests on Easter with a table decorated with love. Colour-coordinated serviettes and table runners in fresh, cheerful colours go very well with natural materials like wood slices. Add some fresh flowers to create a lovely spring atmosphere for your Easter table and you can make it more personalised with individual photo products. Here are our favourite ideas:
Photo Mugs as Easter Nests
Create a personal photo mug for each one of your guests. Not only are they a great decoration, but they can also serve as a small Easter gift. Instead of a nest, you can fill the Photo Mugs with some Easter grass, delicious chocolate or a colourfully painted Easter egg.
You could use the Photo Mug to serve your loved ones a delicious mug cake for dessert. We have put together a great recipe for an Easter cupcake for you further down in the article.
You can also send a mug filled with dry ingredients as a small Easter gift by post.
Personalised Photo Coasters
Our Photo Coasters are a fantastic and creative idea to brighten up your Easter table decoration. The customisable cork-based coasters are effective against glass rings on the table and add a personal touch to your decoration. Create an individual Photo Coaster for each person at the table. You could add a picture of you and your family, use a picture of each family member, or simply decorate the coasters with an Easter design and poem.
DIY: Cake toppers with Photo Stickers
Use our Photo Stickers to make cool cake toppers that you can use to decorate Easter cakes or cupcakes. All you need is our round Photo Stickers and either some small wooden skewers and 4.5cm round pendants. Use your favourite springtime photos or create a pretty Easter pattern to design the Photo Stickers. Attach the tags to the wooden skewers with double-sided tape and then stick a sticker on each side. And that’s it, they are ready for your guests.
Using a Greeting Card as a Place Card
Round off your table decorations with individually made place cards. With the ifolor greeting cards you have the possibility to individually design each card to appeal to the guests’ different tastes and preferences. The many designs available on ifolor can be printed on the outside and the inside of the cards so you have the possibility to write a short and sweet Easter message inside the card or even share your favourite Easter recipe!
Create a cool Photo Puzzle for your little guests. On the one hand, it's a great Easter gift and on the other hand, it's a nice activity idea during the Easter holidays.
Culinary ideas for your Easter meal
For culinary inspiration this Easter, we've put together a delicious menu consisting of three courses that you can prepare and eat in a small group. Let our recipes inspire you:
Light and colourful spring soup
Start the Easter menu with a light and colourful spring soup. This type of soup is particularly popular in French cuisine. It’s tasty and it contains lots of tender vegetables like carrots, asparagus, and peas.
You will need the following ingredients for 4 servings:
- 100 g of asparagus
- 100 g of German turnip
- 100 g of carrots
- 100 g of green beans
- 200 g of peas
- 5 l clear stock (meat or vegetable)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Parsley or chives to garnish
Peel the carrots, asparagus and turnip and then cut them into equal length fine strips. Cut the green beans into 4cm long pieces. Now boil the clear stock in a saucepan and add the carrots, asparagus and turnip and simmer gently over medium heat for 10 minutes. Next, add the peas and green beans. Let everything simmer for another 10 minutes over medium heat. Finally, season the soup with salt and pepper and garnish it with finely chopped parsley and chives.
Tarte flambée for a sociable Easter dinner
Have you ever eaten tarte flambée from raclette pans? If not, then its defiantly worth trying! This delicious raclette idea is guaranteed to score points with your guests this Easter. You can make the tarte flambée dough yourself in no time at all, or you can use ready-made dough from the supermarket.
For the homemade dough, you need 250 g flour, 30 g olive oil, 120 ml water and a pinch of salt. Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead the dough with a hand blender for one minute. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap it in clingfilm and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then cut the dough into small tarte flambée pieces the same size as your pans.
For the Alsatian-style topping, simply chop red onions and dice up some ham and add them to some small bowls. Before serving, season the crème fraîche with salt, pepper and freshly grated nutmeg. Now the fun begins: Place the tarte flambée dough in the pan, spread a tablespoon of crème fraîche on top and then sprinkle with the onion and ham cubes.
Eliminate confusion: Use our Photo Coasters as a placemat for your raclette pans. Create a coaster for each individual family member. That way, everyone knows which pan belongs to whom. And thanks to the robust surface, the Photo Coasters are very durable.
Vanilla Easter cupcakes
All great meals end with something sweet. To make our Easter cupcakes idea, use our customised Photo Mug, which is the perfect size. Put 3 tablespoons of flour in the cup with a pinch of baking powder, 2 tablespoons of sugar, a packet of vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt and mix everything together. Then add an egg, 1 tablespoon of milk and a tablespoon of oil to make a smooth dough. Now place the cup in the microwave for around 5 minutes at 700 watts. Then season the cupcake with some cream and a carrot. The Easter cupcake is ready to enjoy.
