The Easter brunch goes vintage

Typically, that would not be my first choice of vessel. But there is a “je ne sais quoi” that I like about these two collections at Williams-Sonoma.

Strangely while I was assembling my board, I realized that they work together. When you entertain with kids, it feels stylish to integrate children design with fun grown-up patterns as long the two patterns share some commonalities.

How to get the vintage look

The Nostalgic Easter series display a center design inspired by 1920s Easter cards. If you have young children, you can use these all year long because the illustrations carry a children book vibe.

The folkloric design from the 17th century of Provence is draw in richer tones. When you examine Provence closer, you realized that the pattern stays within the same color palette than the Nostalgic Easter collection. Furthermore, the magical forest of castles and animals theme continues the storyline. Provence is ideal for entertaining with kids.

For a vintage European touch nothing beats the white Alfi Thermal Carafes. In production since 1914, this German made carafe will look sharp at your breakfast table. Use this carafe to serve the milk, tea or coffee at the brunch buffet table.

The blue Oval Stoneware Basket, available in 6 colors, is a hot entertaining item. After heating the basket in a 350°F oven for approximately 15 minutes, you tucked inside breads, muffins or croissants so they stay warm at the table.

A rectangular ceramic baker is a must in every kitchen. The ruffled Auberge collection by Emile Henry is cuter than most.

Devilled Egg Platters

If you host a brunch, make sure to prepare deviled eggs. They are making a comeback. The Nostalgic Easter Deviled Egg Platter can safely cradle a dozen deviled eggs or whole hard-boiled eggs.

If you prefer a clean line deviled egg platter, Crate and Barrel carries a minimalist round egg plate. This Crate and Barrel Exclusive can hold 2 dozen eggs.
