Who doesn’t love the idea of brunch, especially a casual brunch where the hostess gets to relax and enjoy as much as the guests? By nature, a brunch setting should be simple and bright, with very slight hints of formality.
Have fun with your centerpieces – use found objects (limes from your fruit bowl? peonies from your flower garden?) to create amusing conversation starters. Regardless of how hard you work on the menu, it may be the centerpiece that took you five minutes that gets the most attention.
Dress your tabletop with simple linen napkins. Use simple, everyday tableware that can either be laid at each place or stacked at one end of the table. And choose the easiest of recipes – brunch is all about relaxing and enjoying your weekend morning.
Casual and fun, but beautiful. That’s our suggestion for your weekend brunch. In our next post we’ll play with some brunch menu suggestions. And we’ll be sure they’re make-ahead dishes that will go perfectly with a mimosa. . .
