A BEAUTIFUL BRUNCH
i really loved the decor at our last austin blogshop that was created by emily and sarah at bird dog wedding, so i’m excited to bring you more beauty from them. they created a gorgeous foraged brunch at the stunning josephine house that they will be sharing with us today along with tips on how to throw your own. i always love a good brunch and this one is spot on!
here are a few ideas to get you started on your own foraged brunch:
• Wander around your neighborhood and see what speaks to you. Here we used silver leaf, dark privet berries, and nandina foliage which has a beautiful red hue in the winter months. Then choose flowers that will compliment what you foraged. The flowers we incorporated here are a mix of locally Texas grown and bunches we got from the super market!
• Make it personal and keep it unfussy. Pulling the flatware, napkins, and vessels from your own stash is the whole point. To create this look we gathered a bunch of mix-match vessels that we already had on hand. It kept everything from looking a little too perfect.
• Get your friends to pitch in! If someone has an eye for a perfectly styled table-scape, let them at it. The more involved they can be, the more personal and unique the whole event will be.
The Southwestern Rose Champagne Cocktail
• Start with 1/2 oz. St. Germain at the bottom of your flute
• Add Gruet Rose until flute is 3/4 full
• Top with Topo Chico
• Add lime circle for garnish
• Buy local. We found our flowers and the final touches for our drinks from local vendors. Take the chance to explore and be inspired. Let your event evolve naturally from what you discover!
For this brunch we collaborated with a team of awesome individuals and vendors. Mia Carameros created the insanely gorgeous menu and place cards, Kate LeSueur snapped the dreamy photos, and our favorite restaurant Josephine House hosted us.
