Sunday Brunching

This past weekend I hosted some of my favorite friends for a Sunday Brunch.  It’s been awhile since I have posted so I thought I would share some pics of the table setting and maybe give some inspiration for Mother’s Day Brunch ideas :).

Also, it’s my favorite flowers’ season–peonies!  Of course I had to make an arrangement showcasing the few peonies I could find in this market (this time of year makes me extremely jealous of the west-coasters who have plentiful access to beautiful buds!!).

I went with a natural and gold color scheme with some pops of light pink.  These candleholders came from Target in the patio section and were a steal at $4 each.  It added a nice touch for the look I wanted:

The menu included:

Bacon — the trick here is baking it in the oven at 375 on a parchment-lined cookie sheet (make sure the cookie sheet has a lip to it to capture the cooked-off fat). Your bacon will come out perfectly flat and crisp (and you can season it if you wish too!)

Eggs — we did ours in muffin pans so that each individual serving was wasy to dish up. We offered both scrambled and over-medium options.

Caprese Salad — always a hit for brunch!

Jumbo shrimp — the best Jumpbo shrimp comes from Fresh Market.  A bit pricey but well worth if for the quality.

Bakery Basket with preserves

Charcuterie

Fresh mixed berries — strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries create a gorgeous rainbow of colors in a glass dish.

Waffle Bar

Mini Desserts — I wish I had time to make these from scratch, but with a 6 month old, that’s not really possible.  But the Whole Foods bakery did the trick :).

And of course, Champagne.  Lots of Champagne.  We had fresh juices, berries, and mint leaves to mix in as well.
