It has become my yearly tradition of hosting a fall brunch for the ladies in my small group. It turns into my excuse for finishing my seasonal cleaning and scouring Pinterest for some perfect culinary inspiration. I typically enlist the help of Husband during my hosting events, but he got a night off this time around because I made volunteers out of both my sister and my dear friend visiting with me from Hawaii(!!). We cranked up the tunes and cranked out pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
Brunch doesn’t have to be anything extravagant–just some fresh flowers, real napkins, and a pretty pitcher of juice paired with simple, seasonal offerings. I love making my guests feel that they can kick their shoes off and relax for a while. I set the mood with laid back music, candles, and scents of cinnamon wafting through the bungalow from my oven.
Not sure who got more relaxed: me or my guests, but the food and conversation put me in a restful state for the remainder of the weekend. I need more brunch in my life.
We’ve still got a few weeks of fall left–who will you plan a brunch for?
