After the Easter egg hunt, a great way to start the celebrations is to invite friends and family to a tasty brunch. Set your table in style with a colourful tablecloth, flowers, decorated eggs and a wonderful spread of goodies. To help you make it easy, we are proposing a few recipes that can easily be served buffet style.
Every Easter we have such fun pulling together a tasty collection of Easter chocolate and other Easter treats. We know it’s also a time for giving small gifts for many friends and families, and we have here some great ideas for you!
A whimsical or gorgeous tea towel is a welcome gift in just about any kitchen! We have so many to choose from we even string them from the ceiling like flags! Come in to check out our selection from Ulster Weavers, Moss Danforth, and more!
A Special Mug
We have everything you need for tea time or coffee breaks, but a mug is something that can be enjoyed by recipients of all ages, and we have loads of those!
We even carry special boxed mugs which make a rather special gift at an affordable price.
A tea towel or some napkins can add some extra colour and even serve as your wrapping. We have a lovely collection of cards suited to any occasion too!
A delightful non-alcoholic bottle of something special, like Seedlip’s botanical cocktail mixers could be just the thing:
Seedlip Garden 108 (a green, grassy floral blend with top notes of sweet peas and hay) and Seedlip Spice 94 (a warm and citrusy spice blend with a long-lingering cardamom and all-spice berry finish). These spirits are designed to mimic the versatility of a spirit base (without the alcohol burn or buzz). Read our full blog post on Seedlip.
For many of us Easter isn’t the same without something sweet. We always have lots of special choices that will show you care (and we won’t tell if you choose something for yourself while you’re at it!).

Priecigas Lieldienas! Joyeuse Pâques! Happy Easter
Demonstrations at Peches & Poivre, Saturday, April 20, 2019
Being the first born in Canada of Latvian parents, I grew up learning some of the traditions of Latvian culture. One of them is the special way in which eggs are dyed for Easter.
I think I smell a wabbit. Or maybe many! Jumpity jump jump on in for wabbity Easter treats. From delicious caramel filled mini bunnies, or a box of ducks all lined up in a row (both great as place settings), to milk chocolate Easter bunnies complete with carrots and a slew of other treats for children and adults too.
Easter is not only a Christian tradition or the matter of the Easter Bunny, for me it is a sign that spring has arrived. Goodbye winter, with your bitter winds, snow boots and mitts, and hello shoes, warmer weather, longer daylight hours, the blooming of flowers, the budding of leaves, and the confident spring song of our native chickadee!
