Summer Brunch

With summer right around the corner, I'm planning on throwing a brunch for some of my girlfriends. A time to enjoy the sunshine, drink mimosas and catch up on life. Doesn't that sound like a great way to kick off such a beautiful season?

I'd start by sending out these adorable eco-friendly invitations from Botanical Paperworks. How cute are these invites? The best part- they're plantable! You can literally bury these in a pot of soil... and watch 'em grow. The party never ends!
I'll set up two main tables- one indoors, and one on the patio. These cute placemats from Dwell Studio will look perfect with my birdcage centerpiece at the kitchen table! For a bit of an elegant touch, I'll put these mocha napkins next to each place setting. I just love the pattern on these.
I'll hang these cute mason jars on the patio rails, filled with cheerful summer blooms.
I've been looking for a new patio table, and I think this one from Lowe's might just do the trick. Something to withstand those gusty Oklahoma winds and raging thunderstorms... but with just the right amount of casual chic.
And the table won't be complete without one of these colorful bird cages to compliment the flowers in the mason jars. Which one is your favorite?
Of course, it's not a girlfriend brunch without a healthy serving of The Pioneer Woman's quiche, served with fresh fruit salad and mimosas.
And as party favors, these initial mugs from Anthropologie. Maybe they're chilling in the fridge with this flower pot dessert from The Pioneer Woman, or steaming with post-brunch coffee.
Or, keeping with our environmentally-friendly/nature theme... everyone can "plant" their invitations in these cute mugs for an instant coffee table centerpiece.
I'm already looking forward to my summer brunch! How do you plan to celebrate hot days, warm nights, and endless sunshine this year?
