Decoration and Cooking Ideas for Easter
Still looking for some inspiration and new ideas for Easter? We have searched far and wide for Easter inspirations and will now show you a few Easter ideas for table decorations and the meal that will give every Easter brunch a little personal touch.
Easter Brunch Invitations
With the high-quality ifolor greeting cards you can make your own personalised invitations for your Easter brunch. Even if you can't see your family: Everyone is happy about Easter greetings! There are many designs available so you can choose your favourite one to invite your guests to a table filled with good food. Choose 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 twigs and moss. 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:
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. Find more ideas of what to put in the photo mugs for Easter here. By the way, a filled Easter cup can also be sent by mail.
Floral Table Decoration with Photo Stickers
As a reminder of spring coming right around the corner, you can cover your table with fresh flowers in bright cheerful colours. Turn each vase into an elegant eye-catcher with the ifolor photo stickers. To really accentuate the sticker, place the sticker in the middle of a paper doily. Use a nice ribbon to complete the decoration and to attach it all to the vase.
As an original alternative, use a glass jar instead of a vase. For a more rustic look you can use some string instead of a ribbon to attach the sticker and doily. Your own DIY flower vases will look lovely with the other natural elements of your table decorations.
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!
Cooking Ideas for an Easter Brunch
To find some cooking inspirations we asked around and went to three Swiss bloggers to see if they had any culinary creations for Easter that they wanted to share with us.
Fantasiewerk’s Plaited Easter Bread
When we asked Sabrina from Fantasiewerk what she thought was essential for an Easter brunch, her answer was clear: “You can’t celebrate Easter without a delicious plaited Easter bread and hand-painted eggs. Egg tapping is also essential to the Easter festivities. First you hit the tops of the eggs, then the bottoms and finally the end that hasn’t been cracked. The one whose egg is still whole in the end is the winner.”

A Very Special Easter Cake by nom-nom.ch
Corinne and Bettina, two graphic designers from Zurich, share their passion for traditional and aesthetically pleasing recipe ideas on their blog nom-nom.ch. Perfect for your Easter brunch, they present a recipe for a typical pastry that we couldn’t imagine a traditional Swiss Easter without. These deliciously moist cakes will make a great finish for your Easter feast. Find the full recipe for you to try here (only available in German).
Asparagus and Eggs by TableTales
Graphic designer and illustrator Iris Schwarz tells stories accompanied by recipes on her blog called TableTales. For Easter she presents a somewhat artistic recipe with quail eggs, green asparagus and a few spices, giving an art exhibition atmosphere to her Easter table. Find the recipe for her Jackson Pollock here (only available in German).

Hold on to Family Easter Traditions in the Form of Photos
Easter is a time for being with family. While searching for colourful eggs on Easter Sunday may be a tradition for most families in Switzerland with children, there are many other Easter traditions that vary from canton to canton. Then there are the family-specific traditions, like going on an Easter stroll, eating certain foods, or playing games. Easter is another occasion where many photos are taken once the family is all together. Let yourself be inspired and do something different this year by creating your own small Easter photo book for the whole family.
