How to Create a Beautiful Spring Brunch

How to Create a Beautiful Spring Brunch

It’s a French Pastry kind of Day!

Hello! I’m so glad that you are here. Do you ever get a craving that you just can’t move past? Well, that happened to me today and I just couldn’t live without shopping for some French Pastries. I love everything about them-they are French and I love all things French, they are beautiful and I love all things beautiful, and they are delicious- and yes, I love all things delicious.

Aren’t these the prettiest little berry tarts, ever?
I adore this French Bakery.

I have a favorite French Bakery. It takes me an hour to get there, but it is so worth it. They have so many wonderful pastries that I just can’t resist them. I ended up buying quite a bit of these gorgeous goodies, so I decided to have a few friends over for a beautiful spring brunch, complete with mimosas, of course.

Crossiants, tarts and macarons, of my!
I love this vintage pitcher. It has such beautiful details.

I’m serving mimosas with the pastries, so I set out the colorful Prosecco bottles and put the orange juice into my favorite vintage etched glass pitcher. You just can’t go wrong with fresh crossiants. I bought ‘confiture parisenne” French jams to spread on the crossiants-raspberry, orange and pear. I partly bought them because the packaging was so pretty. I set the jams on a vintage silver compote.

A perfect way to spend a late morning with friends.

I also got Pavlovas (they are just so pretty!), Lemon Tarts, several different kinds of Macarons, Dessert St Honore and Berry Tarts. I put my pastries on pretty platters/cake stands at several different heights to add interest. I have the macarons on a stand that I made out of a glass candlestick glued to a pretty vintage plate. The berry tarts are on a white cake stand with a dainty pink bow.

I used some goegeous vintage plates and blue floral cloth napkins.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I sure enjoyed spending time with you.

    I love reading and seeing what you do. Can you tell me where the wholesale flower Market is please.

    1. Awe. Thank you so much. There are lots of fun new things happening that I will be sharing soon. My favorite wholesale flower market is Frank Adams. It’s located off of interstate ave. There are about six flower stores in the same building. Hugs and blessings to you.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
