Book Club Brunch

Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting my Book Club's monthly meeting. I changed things up from our normal evening of wine & food and hosted Brunch. It was so fun! I had a blast planning a menu, figuring out drinks and what to have on hand for all the ladies!

We started with a full variety of drinks. Hot drink options of coffee & hot cider. Cold drinks of Mimosas (duh!), and I had chilled water (plain and a pitcher with sliced cucumbers).

Then it was time to eat!!! 

There was a tower of glazed donuts. A yogurt bar: plain yogurt with granola, berries and honey. Fresh Fruit kabobs. A mountain of croissants, with strawberry preserves & butter. And of course the bacon....bacon and sausage. 

Beyond the mimosas, which are always the BEST.THING.EVER!!! The fresh flowers, and the mountain of bacon hit high up on my list!

I am ready to host my next girls night, brunch and dinner party! I don't get to host people near enough! Time to change that!!!

  14. This looks like so much fun! I love a good brunch- and love a good mimosa even more! I recently moved to Chicago and I am missing my brunching gal pals back in NYC. It's nice to know that midwestern ladies know how to make a good brunch, too!!!
