    A Colorful Spring Brunch

    Last Friday I hosted a few friends over for a little brunch fête to catch up and celebrate spring with bellinis in hand and a warm and inviting tablescape blooming with ranunculus in shades of peach and pinks. I realized that I’d prefer all Fridays start like this! It was an ideal way to unfold the weekend. This was the first time I was hosting friends over for a sit-down meal in our dining room – it’s been a work in progress, but finally feeling complete, and it turned out so well.

    Williams-Sonoma Spring BrunchWilliams-Sonoma Spring Brunch

    I tried a new salad recipe that’s become my favorite (and I’ve been making it all week!), avocado toast, ricotta strawberry toast, and Passionfruit Strawberry Bellinis. It was such an easy grocery list to conquer, meal to prep, and was light and delicious! My obsession with marble pieces and weekly trips into Williams-Sonoma (dangerous 2-block walk) has paid off. Thought I would share the tabletop details and menu for upcoming spring events you may be hosting!

    Everything looks so pretty and the menu sounds amazing! Williams-Sonoma is a major weakness for me too!

    Thank you, friend!! 🙂 Ah, I live so dangerously close to a store – I actually went in last night with a friend, not needing anything, and bought 2 coffee mugs. Coffee was such a treat today, haha! 🙂

    Gorgeous! This looks stunning and I love the menu. What is the brand of the dressing you used for the salad? I’m intrigued! 🙂

    Yes, girl you have to get this stuff, I am obsessed! It’s Brianna’s Home Style, and has a big strawberry on the label. 🙂 So so delicious!

    What lens did you shoot with for this brunch? These photos are beautiful and so crisp – I always have a problem with my photos that they aren’t sharp enough!

    Hi! Thanks so much, lady! I use a Canon 50M lens. 🙂

    The table setting is just gorgeous!

    Aw, thank you!! xx
