James Street has all the makings for the perfect Easter lunch, from the food to the table settings, right up to the music. So sit back and relax, because all the makings for your perfect Easter lunch are right here, at your finger tips!
No lunch is complete without the perfect table setting. Cue Magnolia Homewares! Be transported to lunchtime heaven with this white Astier de Villate ceramic dinneware. Made of terracotta clay, the collection is inspired by the 18th and 19th century and is glazed to create a milky white finish. And what’s even better – they’re super durable and surprisingly light to the touch, meaning this beautiful set can be brought out on a daily basis.
Now it’s time to head over to Kova Lifestyle for the always essential napkin. Gone are the days of the classic white napkin – and here are the days of pastel hues and exciting prints. Kova has the perfect napkins to compliment your Astier, and this handmade, authentic textile will suit the raw edges of the table setting. Pair each napkin back with the polka-dotted Easter Bunnies from The Nut Market, creating a subtle but festive affect – not to mention positively delicious!
Sometimes it’s best to stick to tradition, and for centuries, lamb has been seen as the traditional Easter dish. Prime Speciality Meats source their lamb from the greener pastures of Tasmania, and rest assured that this coriander and chipotle lamb rump (courtesy of Gourmet Traveller) is sure to leave your guests especially satisfied, particularly when accompanied by a glass of chilled riesling from Cru Bar.
Now for the most important part of all – the Jocelyn’s Provisions treats! You didn’t think we would forget that, did you? There is no better way to send your guests off after lunch than with a few of Jocelyn’s dangerously delicious hot cross buns. Stuffed full of all the good stuff like raisins, sultanas, citrus peel and an array of spices, the only thing that may rival these famous buns are their Mazet Gull’s Eggs, shipped in direct from Paree! Oh, and did we mention the traditional simnel cake, a light fruit cake with a marzipan seam through the centre and marzipan on top? It’s probably best you pick one of them up too. It’s just too hard to choose!
Of course, no party is quite complete without the perfect playlist, and the perfect playlist is best heard through these Bang & Olufsen Speakers. We suggest blasting a few of Pharrell’s funky tunes to start the party!
