Pat bakes for several days prior - everything homemade - scones (four different varieties all served with flavored butters and lemon curd,) cinnamon rolls, croissants, and hot cross buns. Of course, there is French Toast, sausage (this year was a sausage and egg casserole), fresh fruit compote, Champagne, assorted fruit juices, and coffee and tea. And somewhere in there, Pat still had time to make the napkins for the tablescape. Not bad.
When Pat and her husband had the kitchen remodeled, they created a really neat thing. It is a dual purpose counter-top/dining table. It is the same height as the counters and has been covered in a sheet of Corian to match. When she wants a formal table, she uses assorted tablecloths to cover it up. The chairs were purchased from a company in Canada to match the kitchen and fit the height of the table.
Let Easter Brunch begin.........
Untypically Easter, this year's theme colors are blue, white and yellow (no bland and boring pastels for this table.)
