We live in a historical home that was built in 1917. The house holds a lot of history, which I will get into in another blog post, but because of that historical significance I have been really unsure of painting…
We really enjoy entertaining at home, and with the forecast for a sunny and mild long weekend, my family and I were super excited to host a President’s Day Weekend brunch for our very dear friends.
I decorated the table with a crisp white tablecloth and used some faux flowers and American flags from our July 4th decor as centerpieces.
Once the table is set, I focus on the food. The menu consists of a large fruit salad, smoked salmon and capers, bacon, homemade quiche and a selection of fresh bagels, pancakes and waffles. It is super easy to use the frozen pancakes and waffles – you can just heat what you need and save yourself loads of prep time!
For drinks we serve coffee using our Keurig 2.0, creamer, fresh orange juice and champagne. It’s never too early for a light aperitif! I set all the drinks out on a drinks station in the living room, away from the dining table. This encourages our guests to serve themselves and move around freely. This really helps to establish ‘a make yourself at home’ connection. After the main meal, we carried a few drinks and nibbles out onto the patio to enjoy the fantastic weather.
It was such a lovely day holiday weekend with friends, hope you enjoyed the long weekend as well!
Until next time!
