Sunday Brunch

One of my favorite ways to cap off a great weekend is brunch with friends. There are some fabulous brunch places around here, and I love it even more by enjoying it out on a patio by the water.

I also enjoy making hot breakfast for us at home on the weekends. I tell H all the time that he's spoiled since he usually has his pick of pancakes, french toast, or scrambled eggs and turkey sausage on the weekends.

Because I enjoy cooking a hot breakfast on the weekends, and all our friends enjoy brunching I thought it would be neat to host brunch at our house one weekend outside.

To me brunch is a colorful meal... between the different juices for mimosas and fruit platters I believe the decor should be full of pretty colors as well.


~ Beautiful bouquet of flowers as the centerpiece

~ Bellini candles

~ Make your own coffee bar with k-cups and colorful coffee cups and saucers

~ Make your own mimosa bar with fresh fruit and a variety of juices to mix with the champs

~ Bagel station complete with a bagel slicer (one of my favorite items off our Crate & Barrel registry from our wedding) and a cream cheese schmearer *also from C&B*.

~ Waffles with VT maple syrup

~ Bacon... always bacon

~ Melon balls *melon baller also from C&B*

~ Omelettes topped off with avocado slices

~ Angel food cake with fresh strawberries for dessert

Have you ever hosted brunch for your family/friends? What were your must haves?


  1. I like this post! And I love your blog! Followed you here and on Bloglovin as well. I hope you'd check my blog too and follow-back. :)


  2. Love this! I did one to introduce my boyfriends parents and my parents and it was a huge hit! We did an Italian deli station as well for sandwiches. Brunch is easily my favorite meal - let me know if you have any good brunch recipes!

  3. Sunday Brunch is the best thing ever- my friends and I always talk about hosting it at each others places but it has yet to happen.. these are some great ideas for if we ever do though! And obviously it would include lots of bacon.

  4. we have but it's just a "come on over and stuff your face!!" no special table decorations or anything.
