A fresh brunch

After this lush and intimate dinner party Heather from HMN Photography and I styled last month, we decided to move our focus to that special Sunday meal known as brunch. While an abundant table of eggs, sugared goodies, fruit, juices, and warm toast often set the scene for a satisfying meal, the overly stuffed feeling is usually hard to shake for the rest of the day. This table took inspiration from bright colors and a clean offering of foods perfect for a healthy mid-morning meal. Clean lines and a pristine table allowed each bite of food to shine, while fun silver dollar pancake "cakes" offered a sweet bite without weighing down the meal. Of course, no brunch is complete without a cocktail, so mini glasses of orange juice and accompanying splits of champagne made it easy for each guest to mix their own concoction. Bursts of paper flowers gave the final pop of color that tied the sunny meal together.
