Valentine’s Day is one of the polarizing holidays – you either love it or you ignore it all together (let’s be honest…we’ve all been there at one point in our lives). But do you know what makes everything better? Brunch! Breakfast food, sparkling adult beverages, and delicious pastry treats…we’re in! A Valentine’s Day “Love Brunch” is just the thing to celebrate all of the loves in your life without all the lovey dovey hype.
Set your table with an unexpected twist on the typical holidays colors. Black, red, and a natural linen palette set a casual, European mood that has just the right amount of romance. We love the stripes to mix it up as well! Need an alternative to a vase of (overpriced) florals on the table? Try using eucalyptus leaves or bougainvillea and arranging them into a table runner! Pop some roses in there for a flair, maybe even a peony or two, and you’ve got a unique arrangement for half the price!
Whether you’re celebrating with your family, friends, or that special someone, a love brunch is the perfect way to slow down and reflect on all the love you do have in your life!
