hostess with the mostess: brunch

some of my favorite things about spring are parties, flowers, and fruits. what better way to celebrate the sunny weather than by hosting a springtime brunch with friends? here are some of my biggest tips for hosting a lovely little brunch:

fresh flowers

how wonderful does it feel to see fresh blooms everywhere at the first sign of spring? flowers are the perfect way to decorate the table and keep everyone in a great mood. i love the idea of using a mason jar or an old candle jar as a vase!

a delicious menu

the best part of brunch is definitely the food. this french toast recipe is perfect for a group and tastes amazing!

i also recommend a tasty fruit plate for your friends to enjoy. there are so many great fruits in season this time of year!

signature mocktail or cocktail

for a non-alcoholic drink, i recommend lemonade – and here is a great recipe for lavender lemonade, which is so delicious. bubbly is always my go-to for any kind of get-together! champagne is so yummy and you can make it fun by adding some frozen fruit skewers to every glass.

i always love dessert – what kind of party is it without a treat?
