entertain: Valentine's Day Brunch

Valentine's day is perfect for hosting a brunch with friends and family to celebrate -- well, LOVE of course! Brunch is a personal favorite of mine -- it somehow savors the morning and lets it last a little bit longer. Here are some details I'd include in a Valentine's Brunch, complete with menu, playlist, and decor ideas. Enjoy!
{Valentine's Brunch Menu}
Heart shaped mini pancakes (make an apple version like I have here)
Fresh cut strawberries 
syrup and strawberry jam
heart shaped eggs, toast and bacon
orange juice, coffee, tea
sweet heart mimosas 
(my creation of mixing cranberry juice & champagne)
 And no festive gathering is complete without an awesome playlist and fabulous & fun decor. 
Check out my  picks below:

{Valentine's Brunch Playlist}
Kiss Me -- Sixpence None the Richer
Friday I'm in Love -- The Cure
Your Song - Elton John
Make You Feel My Love -- Adele

  10. I agree, brunch is the best! Breakfast foods are my all time fave but I never seem hungry enough in the mornings for a huge feast. Push it back a little later til I'm hungry and we've got brunch! Lurve.
