Some events come together with ease. All you need is an appetizer here, fresh flowers there … and voila! The perfect party! Other events take planning, preparation and color coordinating. This Easter brunch for the whole family falls into the latter category. Thankfully, event designer extraordinaire Blair, of Sarah Blair Event Design, planned a picture-perfect day that was as enjoyable as it was lovely. With a focus on spring colors and ways to keep the kids happy, plus a bit of legwork, the end result was well worth the effort.
While the decorations took center stage, a game of egg knocking was the most memorable. A game Blair’s husband learned from his father, who learned from his father, and so forth, egg knocking allows all ages to participate. The rules are simple: form a bracket for the players, each player chooses a dyed egg of their choice, one opponent holds their egg on the bottom and the other, on the top. The opponents tap their eggs until one cracks. The winner (indicated by the uncracked egg) moves on to the next round.
Whether you are a throw-it-together party planner or one who prefers a well-laid-out plan, use these photos to guide you through the process.
Thank you to Sarah Blair Event Design for the inspiration and Mary Craven Photography for capturing the day so beautifully!
Happy Easter, everybody!
