The season for being thankful is upon us. As the year ends I love to surround myself with the kind souls I hold most dear. Girls’ Brunches are a fabulous way to get together, eat WAY too many pastries, orange juice concoctions, and of course no need to wake-up early- IT IS BRUNCH. Everyone wins. Check out my Girls Brunch Ideas and fabulous Simply Orange Mocktail.
Girls Brunch Ideas
Planning a Tablescape
I love starting with a theme for the party I am hosting. I typically shy away from bright colors and tend to thrive within a neutral pallet. When thinking about options I knew that I wanted earth tones as the base and to use winter whites with pops of gray and silver. Star plates with a sparkly silver center plate were the focal points of the seating arrangements. I stopped into my local Albertsons to grab all of the food, flowers, and of course drinks.

-Decadent Caramel Apples
-Chocolate Devil’s Food Cake Bread
-Orange Cranberry Bread
-Simply Orange Juice
-Bag of Ice
-Fizzy Flavored Water
When styling the table I tend to use mix-matched plates in the same color and texture. I love the layering effect that it creates and just enough of a difference helps create a unique tablescape.
Layering the Look
Simply Orange Mocktail
-Chilled Carbonated Water- Raspberry Flavor
-Fresh Strawberries & Cantaloupe
Start by filling the glass 2/3rds full with Simply Orange, add in the Raspberry Fizz, and plop a piece of strawberry and cantaloupe- I think the MORE the MERRIER when it comes to fresh fruit in my drinks- so add in more if you are like-minded. (High-Five Fruit Lovers of the World!)
Simply Orange- Delicious taste-Never sweetened-Never frozen-Not-from-concentrate!

Brunch So Hard
Cheers to Friendship
Love being able to hear the echoes of new and old friends alike. Life moves so fast at the holidays with To Do Lists and family activities. I find that if I don’t make the time to see those I hold most dear, and plans aren’t made, then before you know it the New Year is here and we are off to the races.
So MAKE plans, head to Albertsons, and gather around with those that matter most this season of life. Family is important but friends choose to love you and be there for you. Make sure you see those dear to you before the New Year hits. Make time.
