i love playing the hostess.
to me. it is so fun to decorate a beautiful table.
cook delicious eats. & welcome loved ones into my home.
it brings me great joy.
this year for mother's day.
i was delighted to invite my in-laws over for a simple brunch.
it was just the four of us. and baby patrick. too.
it was sweet. it was intimate. it was very special.
yogourt parfaits are such a simple starter for a brunch.
it is easy to create a beautiful presentation with minimal effort.
i used vintage champagne glasses to hold a few bites of vanilla yogurt.
then topped it off with a sprinkle of granola. berries. & a mint leaf.
bright pink blooms just scream happy mother's day!
a very simple. yet punchy. centerpiece for a simple celebration.
i was so thrilled to bring out my wedding silver for this special brunch.
sterling silver is always the icing on the cake when playing hostess.
for my tablescape. i kept it very clean & light.
just three vases of flowers. two crystal candle holders.
& beautiful place settings of gold & white.
simplicity at its finest.
i truly pieced together items that i already owned to create this look.
white dishes from pottery barn. gold plates from pier one.
vintage butter dishes & champagne glasses.
& that is the fun part. pulling pieces together to create different looks.
orange juice always adds a zesty punch of color to a brunch table.
not to mention. its terribly delicious to sip on.
pick a few divine dishes to whip up . . .
and you have yourself a simple. beautiful. wonderful. brunch.
our menu was a dynamite bacon. spinach. gruyere quiche.
blueberry cobbler crumb cake. & fresh minted strawberries.
it turned out just delicious if i do say so myself.
will be sharing the recipes soon!
hope this inspires you to play hostess for a simple brunch.
