This weekend was filled with lots of little get-togethers, a nice date night, a birthday party for one of my favorite little cousins, and a nice long, leisurely brunch with my girlfriends on Sunday morning. It sort of felt like the calm before the storm, next weekend will be filled with holiday parties and shopping and wrapping and packing things up to visit family for Christmas. How did you spend your weekend?
I snapped a few pictures of brunch at our apartment this morning before anyone arrived. I broke up some supermarket bouquets and dispersed them into my collection of mini jadeite vases for a centerpiece at the breakfast table, and put a little extra effort into displaying my fruit salad by layering melon and berries in a round vase. It was feeling extra bright and Spring-y inside despite the rainstorm outside! Did you have a nice relaxing Sunday too?
I hosted my book club for brunch this weekend and had fun setting the table with a new tablecloth and some Spring flowers. Champagne glasses and cloth napkins made a get together with the girls a little more special. I served popovers and fruit salad, and some delicious whole wheat banana pancakes with cinnamon butter, YUM!
I don’t know how anyone expects me to focus when there’s a royal wedding to be planned! I told some of my girlfriends to be prepared — if the event is televised I will absolutely be throwing a viewing party for the royal wedding next year.
Just because there’s no date set yet doesn’t mean I haven’t started planning this hypothetical get together. You can bet I’ll be pulling out some my Kings Road Redux pieces from Rosanna Inc.
I have the tray from this collection and love the shimmery gold crowns — wouldn’t it be perfect for a royalty-themed brunch? I may have to invest in a few of the tea cups too… can’t have a royal brunch without
tea champagne in mugs!
I had a delicious brunch with my girlfriends to cap off a relaxing fall weekend.
This was a bowl of baked heaven:
Brunch was topped off with some thrifting at the SOWA market:
Lots of Mad-Men-esque glassware, I’m kicking myself for not scooping these up:
And ton’s of retro-chic:
This one was a winner:
Also, no trick-or-treaters showed up tonight, which means I have a lot of candy to eat this week… I better go get started.
