Brunch Parties


There are only a few people in my life, that are true hostess’s. Meaning, they love the cooking, the prep, the stress and the fun of throwing a really, really, good party. My good friend A, is one of those people. Last weekend, she had an intimate brunch with just a few of us. It was a posh brunch, so I enjoyed the chance to go all out!

I loved all the decor, from the handwritten AND watercolored menu’s and food labels to the bouquets of flowers lining the table to the mimosa bar! I feel like it’s only in the last two years that a few of us have really matured in adults who throw fabulous dinner parties, and in this case, a fabulous brunch.


A is a devoted chef, and the food was the highlight of the morning next to the mimosa bar! My personal favorite was the fig and pistachio tart (pictured below!), but really everything was delicious.






And finally, the people are what make the event fun. A has a great group of friends, and that helps!

I think I might steal a few of her ideas and host my own fun brunch over the summer. What do you think of hosting friends for brunch? Any must have brunch food ideas?
