Brunch Me

If I was a meal, I’d be brunch.

Brunch is me.

Brunch. Me.

I love going out for with friends for this epic meal, but it’s also a lot of fun to prepare yummy brunch for friends and family. I’m an entertainer at heart, so any chance to get my friends together and feed them, I’m down for.

I went to brunch Saturday and had this pretty amazing meal.

Brunch Me- Le Pain Quotidien

It’s okay, you can wipe your mouth (from drool) this is a safe place. It looks amazing, right? Well, it was delicious as well!

While enjoying this yummy meal with my BFF, it got me thinking about my ideal brunch. Like my DREAM brunch, the event planner in me immediately kicked in. I was mentally making a mood board. Think table settings, invitations, beautiful summer blooms, and homemade blood orange mimosas. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Does anyone else dream about planning the lushest brunches? One of these days it’s going to happen! Until then I’m going to obsessively plan.

Just imagine this…

Brunch Me Decor

I love an outdoor brunch! The height of the  table in addition to the floor pillows and rugs make it a little more laid back.

Fresh flowers are a must. These blooms add a pop of color.

The mismatched plates, marble, and wooden serving plates are eye catching but also add a home-like feel to the decor.

Endless coffee is a must. I’m a cold brew type of gal.

I love brunch because you can eat, like a lot. Cheese plates pancakes, and bread baskets galore. I want it all.

Blood orange mimosas are life changing. Fresh squeezed is a must! Add some bubbly and you’ve got a refreshing drink. Super easy!

Eggs bakes are great. It makes it look like you were slaving over a hot stove all day, but really you used last night’s leftover roasted veggies, topped it with an egg and baked it for 15 minutes. Leftovers = Major Key

Lastly,  my dream brunch has to include my favorite indulgent little treat…bacon wrapped figs, stuffed with goat cheese. *heart eyes*

While at a tapas restaurant with friends, I tried it for the first time. I was very skeptical, I thought “How does that even work? Bacon, dates and goat cheese. No.” After I tried it I said “How does that even work? Bacon, dates and goat cheese. YES.” Ugh, these things are so good!

I hope this post didn’t make you all too hungry. What does your dream brunch look like? Let me know!
