Easter Inspiration!

Easter is just around the corner!! Are you excited yet? This is probably one of my favorite holidays!!
This year we have about 20 people coming over for brunch and it is totally bringing out the party planner in me!
Here is my inspiration board:
My mom and I are heading the operation. She is managing the main dishes and I have volunteered for table settings, and dessert. 
I have found some amazing table settings from some of my favorite bloggers.
I'm going for natural and simplicity.
Here are the ones I'm letting inspire me:
I love the lavender sprigs on the napkins, and the to go bags with menus printed on them. 
And this centerpiece has perfect soft blossoms in a rustic container. For me, this is a must this year.

Something I really want to do this year is a self-serve mimosa bar like this one I found at Small Shop Studio.
I love the idea of options, and letting people choose their own ratio of champaign and juice. I think I'll add a bowl of raspberries for garnish too 
And best for last, my dessert bar. I am so so so excited for this!! 
To the left of the bar I am going to place some coconut macaroons
To the right of the bar I am going to make some hummingbird cupcakes with pineapple flowers. This cake recipe is my mom's favorite.
On a small plate in front of the bar, I am going to scatter some pastel colored meringues 
And for the focal point of the dessert bar...
This gorgeous carrot cake
Let's hope mine turns out half as beautiful
And with inspiration from The Pretty Blog
I am hoping to make a bunting cake topper.
What are you planning on this Easter??
