Easter brunch

We LOVE all kinds of celebration (big and small) and when there is something to celebrate we are more than happy to take the opportunity to gather our family and friends. Of course it’s all about just having a nice time together with our loved ones, but if we can add some lovely food, drinks, games and one or two small d.i.y-projects, we believe  that a ordinary gathering easily can be upgraded to an unforgettably feast.

Here at Bliss Copenhagen, we will share all our own celebrations. We hope that you will get inspired and get some inspiration and new ideas for your very own celebrations. First in line for you is a lovely family Easter brunch. Enjoy!
