Pierce is the name and brunchins' my game!
Does anyone know if hosting brunches can be a full time job? If so count me in! The month of April I have decided to feature a brunch each week, not necessarily cooked by me, but definitely styled by me.
There is nothing like waking up on a Sunday morning, reaching over for the bottle of Advil and trying to piece together the night before and then remembering you've got brunch plans with ya pals! It is a tradition with my group of friends to get together for brunch and laugh about the events from the night before. Great conversation and a belly ache from laughing so hard are two key ingredients to all brunches. I'm pretty sure they were on Oprah's Favourite Things list one year.
I hosted the first brunch this past weekend to get things started. Let me tell you, it's all in the details people. I used my good friends vintage dishes which were all mismatched perfectly and had mini bottles of orange juice in the centre for guests to grab. I had some leftover burlap from my dining room wall project and used it as a runner. One guest said the table setting felt like he was eating in the Parisian countryside....said guest was obviously day drunk.
My friend Lyle from a previous blog post has graciously offered to host brunch next weekend. I am sending the contractors to his place tomorrow to knock down some walls, his space just isn't conducive to the brunch, I need it to be more zen. Can't wait to style the shit out of that one too.
