Sunday Brunch

Pin It Now!

Last Sunday I hosted a Spring Brunch for my Supper Club.  Usually around this time of the year the weather is beautiful but we had a huge storm hit on Sunday with lots of wind and rain! I had visions of us having mimosas on the patio but that didn't happen! Oh well, we had a lovely time indoors!

I kept the table very simple.  Just an old canning jar with some cut flowers from my garden on top of one of my favorite linen and lace tablecloths.


Those plates above were from Marshalls awhile back.  I just love them! I sure wish they sold complete sets of this pattern. They just had dessert plates, and tea sets.  They were so inexpensive I would have bought a complete set if they had them!


I used my little terra cotta pot napkin rings that I've had for probably 10 years or longer...


It was a small group this time, only four of us.  I made an artichoke fritatta...

Andrea brought these yummy crepes...

Becky made an amazing gingerbread and she put lemon curd on top. It was so moist!

Barbara made this delicious bread pudding with croissants. It was THE BEST bread pudding I've ever had!

Lots of custardy goodness happening inside that bread pudding...

We also had Mimosas...

When I get the recipes, I'll do an update on this post!

Beautiful table, Cindy. I do love the simplicity of it, although the beautiful dishes are anything but simple. I too, would have bought a full set or settled for one tea cup!!

The food looks gorgeous and delicious. What a lovely brunch!

Sandy said...

Hi Cindy,
Everything looks delicious and your table is beautiful. I must tell you how popular you are. I joined your Show n' Tell last Friday (my first time ever) and I was amazed at the increase in visitors and hits to my blog the day after that post and I know it is all because of your popularity. It was a treat for me to have more visitors. Thanks for fixing my link too. It was easy to use Linky and I liked that yours shows a photo. Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Teacup Lane (Sandy)

Yummy, looking forward to the recipes, it all looks fantastic. Pretty table setting too. I think I am going to have to join a supper club. Sounds like a good way for a single girl to get to try out all her fancy recipes.

Your brunch looked like the perfect way to spend a rainy day.
Love truly lives in your home.

Hi Cindy, This table is so simple, peaceful and welcoming! The floral plates are beautiful with the white and really stand out. Wow! Do you think you could share the artichoke frittata recipe with us? I have a great baked artichoke cheese dip recipe but I think my family would love the frittata!

Sarah abeachcottage said...

love the tables, especially the canning jar, I am looking for one in blue, I think these are quite unusual...I have plenty of clear ones and blue bottles but not jars...nothing better than stuffing them with flowers!

oh and I tell sooo many people about your supper club as if I have been to it lol! I read about supper clubs in Jamie Oliver when he visited America and find it very interesting...do your guests pay or is it a reciprocal type thing?

nice post

Sarah

frankie said...

I had some of those dishes, I just found salad plates and mugs.. I didn't have much blue at the time so I gave them to my daughter Madeline.. seeing them on your table makes me wish I had them back.. I always loved them.. I got them at TJ maxx..

Sarah said...

Gorgeous table setting, mouth watering food & fabulous company! What more could you want? Thanks for sharing.

sandy said...

What a lovely scene...a dream to step into! I love it! Th

Melanie said...

Your flowers are beautiful! The whole table is beautiful and yummy food:) I love bread pudding.

Che Ta said...

hi cindy
i looked into the croissant bread pudding recipe, but couldnt figure out what is half-and half?
anyone please help?

Jojo said...

Everything was lovely and looked yummy! I just loved your plates too!!!

Toronto Girl said...

Your floral arrangements are always beautiful. MIne look like I made them blindfolded. It would be great if you could write tutorial on flower arranging sometime :)

Chatelaine said...

Nice and intimate. Your floral arrangement is gorgeous. I can't believe the flowers are from your garden.

That bread pudding looks delicious!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Che Ta, I guess they don't sell Half and Half in Malaysia? It's just one part milk to one part cream. They sell it already mixed together here but you could make your own. Since it calls for 5 cups of Half and Half, you would mix 2 1/2 cups of milk and 2 1/2 cups of cream.

Wow, no wonder it tastes so good! That's a lot of cream!!! Haha!

Alicia ~ time worn style said...

Looks wonderful!
