Last year I hosted our very first "Pinterest Brunch". The basic idea is that you choose several yummy recipes from Pinterest and create a board and then everyone makes something from the board. This year we decided it would be fun to have a theme........so Welcome to our Parisian Inspired Brunch! I hope you enjoy the photos. It was a great time!!
This Paris sticker decal was a perfect way to incorporate our theme. It stuck to my existing art and came off easily.
I love these little food markers. You just write on them with a sharpie and then wash them when you are done.
Thank you Benix and Co.
The cake was made by our friend Jenn at Heavenly Sweets in Keswick.
I raided my aunt's house for decor items and serving dishes, as she has a wonderfully creative and pretty style.
The Paris signs were purchased from Homesense (and then returned afterwards......shhhhhh!)
The linens were curtain material that I got on sale at the clearance section of Fabricland for $2 a metre!!! Best deal Ever!
The printables were from Etsy and cost $5!! What I loved about them was that I could edit them myself.
This beautiful frame was another score from my aunt's house.
The Chocolate Croissants were a bit of a cheat as they were purchased ready made from Sobeys.....but so yummy. The French Breakfast Puffs were crazy good. I highly recommend looking them up on Pinterest and giving them a try.
I found these cute chocolate wrappers online for free.
Jodie wrapped Cookies and Cream bars as party favours.
These Blackberry Cabarnet Cupcakes were unique
and tasty. Main Ingredient: WINE!! Love the French.
Crepes were filled with Nutella, Berries & Whipped Cream
Mini French Toasts made with Baguettes were so tasty
and Proscuitto wrapped Quiche....yum.
Parisienne Potatoes seasoned with Sage and Rosemary
French Onion Soup a la Epicure. Best Soup Ever!
The Cheese Fondue Jodie made was to die for and was served with lightly toasted herbed Baguette pieces.
The French Macarons and Eiffel Tower Cookies were made by our friend Julie at Baker's Maam in Keswick.
I thought they looked cute displayed in these candle holders.
Pam dyed doilies with instructions from Pinterest. They made the place settings extra special.
We took an old painting and sprayed the frame pink, turned the painting backwards and used chalk board paint to create this cute board!
A vase and flower from Dollarama and a little bit of glitter and... Voila....centrepieces!
Pam is so creative!
We forgot to get a group shot this year but managed to get a shot of the organizing committee.
Thank you Jodie and Pam for being so creative and wonderful, and particularly attentive to the details.
