Brunch: My Favorite Weekend Meal

I'm sure that takes you by no surprise for those that follow along frequently! My weekends often involve Sunday brunch whether at home or at a nifty restaurant to gather with friends.

Brunch is the perfect way to celebrate a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday or even if you just need a reason to celebrate the weekend. I found some creative brunch party ideas on FTD's blog that I wanted to share.


From creative DIY floral ice cubes and ice buckets to floral tablescape decor, there are plenty of genius ways to host a memorable brunch party at home.

Their website gave me many cute ideas, I already want to gather up the girls and get the champagne poppin!

After helping to host Kate's Brunch & Baby Shower a few weeks ago, I'm already looking forward to having another brunch at home for future celebrations to come.

The Cutest Travel-Themed Baby Shower & Brunch

I'm excited to share the details of the most precious baby shower we threw over the weekend for Kate. Kate has become a special friend to all of us since she moved to Florida so we wanted to make her shower extra special and what better way than hosting a Sunday brunch with a travel-theme?

The Invitations
I got all excited about the travel theme and volunteered to do the invitations which turned out gorgeous! They were printed on shimmery champagne-colored paper and came in the form of a dainty postcard in the mail. (I blocked out some info below for privacy purposes)

Have Baby, Will Travel
We asked Kate's guests to bring an unwrapped children's travel-related book which we collected in a chest by the front door. I'm sure these will be sentimental for her to read to Serena through her different stages of childhood.

The Brunch Spread
We put together quite the menu which included a bagel station along with quiche, deviled eggs, western omelet muffins, scones, french toast with bacon, and granola yogurt parfaits.


The Mimosa Bar
Brunch and mimosas just seem to go hand-in-hand so I used some Pinterest inspiration to put together a nice selection of juices, champagne, and fruit to garmish with.

The Fun & Games
We played some traditional shower games and then a travel-themed game, which was actually quite difficult because, who knows how to say the word "baby" in 15 different languages? A nice effort was made by all and then it was time to get crafty at the headband station.

The Baby Bump Cake
Jen designed the most beautiful cake perfect for Kate to go with the whole travel theme. Inside was filled with chocolate cake and chocolate mousse so talk about being pretty but so delicious!

The Shower Gifts
I have to say Kate and Serena got showered with some amazing gifts and it made me realize how fun it is to shop for little girls. I got Serena some Minnie Mouse gear and an adorable baby-size travel neck pillow and blanket.

The Ladies

The Party Favors
Jen put together some adorable party to-go favors with some cute personalized detail.


What was inside?

I love how all the details came together for Kate's baby shower and it was so fun celebrating the beautiful mommy-to-be as we await baby Serena!
