One fun thing about hosting Easter brunch is decorating with the pastels and spring details we've been deprived of all winter. While the bright hues and prints alone will make your table pop, here's how you can take it up a notch this year: with Easter bunny napkins.
They may look complicated, but trust us; they're very easy to do. Taking just a few quick steps, we'll show you how to fold your own bunny napkins to sweeten up your Easter place settings.
First off, you'll need cotton or linen square napkins. Pro tip: The folding is easier with thin napkins rather than thick ones. The color is up to you, though! You can use white, pink or any color napkins you like. Since our Easter table decor is yellow and pink, we used yellow napkins.
Fold the napkin in half and then in half again, forming a long rectangle.
Fold the right and left sides down to meet in the center, forming a point at the top.
Fold the bottom corners up, also meeting at the center.
Fold in the side corners so that they meet in a point. Your napkin should now be in a kite-like shape.

Very gently turn the napkin over and fold the top point downward.
Gently turn the napkin back over.
Roll the right side of the napkin over, a bit past the center point. Fold the left side over and tuck it into the pocket on the right side.
Stand your napkin bunny upright. You may need to adjust the bottom to form a base. Fluff the bunny ears and position the napkin on your plate.
