Easter Lunch with friends

Hosting an Easter Lunch this coming weekend? Are you looking for inspiration that is stylish yet achievable? Do you love to entertain but wish you had more time to prepare a delicious meal?

Last Friday I hosted a very simple lunch for a group of four girlfriends. We all lead busy lives and only had a few hours to get together to celebrate our friendship.

Setting the theme for our lunch were these adorable salad plates from Pottery Barn.

These divine 'gull eggs' where presented in a tiny nest as favours for each guest.

In A Pickle is always the first place I visit when I'm hosting a lunch or dinner. For our girls lunch I served tomato and sweet corn tart with silverbeet and rissoni salad.

A glass of Verve always puts a smile on my face.

For dessert I served these decadent Pistachio Meringues with clotted cream from In A Pickle and this wicked Turkish Delight Cheesecake from Jocelyn's Provisions.
