Hello My friends! It always feels so long when I write. Only a week but feels like more. We survived spring break over here. I know some kids are still out. My kids are back at school. Of course the week goes so fast. I was busy, David my oldest had practice still so our days were still school like. And Breaker just likes to be home, Lol. I’m cool with that. Unless you are out of town, it’s so busy everywhere. The cool thing is we only have about a month in a half left of school and summer break starts. We have a few trips planned. Nothing big this year, We are hoping for next year to visit the hubbies motherland, Yucatan. We really want to do a family trip and to visit Tulum. So putting it out there in the universe that this family trip will happen next year!
So Today’s Post is Brunch ideas. I put together a Brunch for Easter. It was a smaller group, so I was doing all the cooking. I wanted it to be easy, pretty and delicious. I didn’t want to be stuck in the kitchen or cooking that morning. I love to enjoy my own parties. I found most of my ideas from Pinterest. Pinterest has been my jam for 8 years. I actually found a lot of bloggers I follow now from pinterest. So it’s my OG source. You can follow me also on Pinterest. I try to pin fun stuff all week.
I went with an easy decor I love simplicity I mean hello, Style Sencillo (simple). I went to the LA flower mart and I already had in mind what flowers I wanted. Made the trip easier, The hubs was happy about that.I whipped up some easy arrangements! Watching my mom for years making arrangements kinda helped out, It’s not hard and actually very fun. I bought white linen last year before christmas from LA, It’s honestly a good investment to buy your own linen rather than renting. I bought some linen square pieces from Joannes fabric and tie dyed them to get a boho look. I used a tan color tie dye. For my first time alone I think they came out pretty good. I actually want to get some linen napkins and do them a nice grey color tie dye.
For food, Ok this is the fun part. I wanted to find easy recipes that I can prep the night before, I found all of them on pinterest which makes this easy, I’ll link the recipes. Not pictured, First was an Egg casserole, Came out delicious.Also not pictured, Second was a french toast casserole, also great. I made some mini egg, bacon and cheese croissant sandwiches and some mini cuban sandwiches. All were great and prepped the night before. I just placed all in the oven when guest arrived. I also got some fresh bagels and cut them in half so it wasn’t so overwhelming. I put together some yogurt parfaits, with granola and coconut on the side. The mini bowls for parfaits are from party city. I placed some strawberries and orange slices for a touch of fruit. Big sis bought some mini glaze donuts from krispy kreme, that was a hit! Super easy and don’t forget the mimosa bar! Happy brunching.
Till next post.
