The Briars prides itself on tradition and Easter weekend is one of their notorious holidays.
With a weekend full of activities, getting away to The Briars was sure to be fun!
Their social calendar for the guests was filled all weekend with yoga, bonfires, arts and crafts, photography walks, a dinner and dance and an Easter egg hunt for kids and adults alike – there was no shortage of things to do at The Briars!
On Easter Sunday, I woke up bright and early and participated in the Easter Egg Hunt. It was so adorable seeing everyone run around the resort looking for chocolates and the mysterious Golden Egg. Once it was found – prizes were awarded to the lucky ones who found the winning eggs.
I didn’t find any. Womp womp.
After the Easter Egg Hunt – it was time for brunch! And this wasn’t your ordinary brunch. No, no. This brunch was a buffet with a little (more like, a lot) of something for everyone!
The Easter Bunny came around, greeting every table with treats. So of course, I had to take a pic (ok, multiple) with him!
Craving your typical breakfast food? No problem.
You could choose from fresh omelets made to order, traditional eggs benedict, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, buttermilk pancakes, egg white and spinach burrito with havarti, salsa and guacamole and many assorted homemade breakfast breads.
Looking for something a little…heavier? Ok.
How about some roast prime rib of beef, yorkshire pudding, honey baked ham, roast pork loin, apple chutney with dates, grilled salmon, bok choy, shitake mushrooms, crisp chicken, spinach and ricotta cannelloni, seasonal vegetables, and/or potato gratin.
No brunch is complete without mimosas, and The Briars know this!
Not my fave, but there was an extensive choice of sushi and maki rolls, as well as dim sum.
You know what would have went great with all this cheese?
I spent way too much time at the dessert table. But – I regret nothing!
Choosing between the Lemon and Raspberry Shortcake and Cream Cheese Carrot Cake was too difficult of a decision.
So we got a slice of each. LOL
Pavlova is always a great dessert choice, am I right?
But really…my heart belonged to all of the macarons.
And when I say all, I mean…ALL. LOL
Guys…seriously…can I? pic.twitter.com/XUaWRREv2u
