3 DIY Ideas for Easter Brunch

With Easter Sunday quickly approaching and weekend brunch fresh on my mind, I scoured Pinterest for three ideas to turn your Easter holiday into a fabulous fête.

With a DIY approach, I opted for ideas that included easy to put together stations. Leaving more time for the hostess to mingle instead of serve. Enjoy!

1. Mimosa Bar

You can’t go wrong with champagne! Grab your favorite bottle and pair it with orange, cranberry, peach and pineapple juice. To complete the cocktail {or mocktail} add a few bowls of sliced fruits for garnishes on the side.

2. Bagel Station

This station  is easy to setup! Just buy a box of bagels from your favorite shop, a few varieties of cream cheese,  and add a plate or two of your favorite proteins and vegetables. Your guest can grab and go or mingle while they smear!

3. Waffle Bar

Waffles are a great make-ahead finger food that can be served on a plate, skewer or attached to a cup of pure maple syrup.  Plus,they can double as a dessert, if served with a creamy hazelnut spread, whipped cream or even jelly!

Review: Adore Me

I was recently asked to try Adore Me, an online lingerie club based out of NYC that focuses on designer lingerie sets, swim suits, sleepwear and corsets at affordable prices. I was super excited for the opportunity to try out the brand and even more excited when I started looking at their products.

The ordering process was simple. When you first sign up, you are asked a few simple questions to help build your style profile, and from there you can choose from your showroom or browse the site for something that catches your eye.

I opted for sleepwear, since I thought it was a safe bet regarding size, and I am really happy I did. I ordered a super cute romper*, in small, that is extremely soft and comfortable. For the price ($39.99), the product was high quality and the fabric didn’t wrinkle, which is great for traveling.  Plus, it was really flattering. And, shipping was quick too.  So if you need something in a pinch, it’s worth a visit.

One other thing I likeed is their membership options.  If you become a VIP member, you are not committed to make a purchase every month.  You can skip without being charged and even put your account on vacation mode.

I was really happy with my experience and recommend checking out the website if you are looking for new lingerie, sleepwear and swim options.  If you are interested in checking out Adore Me, click here.  Enjoy!

A sunset picnic at Estancia Culinaria

Florida is having the most amazing weather lately, and since this is a rare occurrence my husband and I took full advantage and went on a picnic last weekend for Valentine’s Day.

FarmPhoto1But it wasn’t just any ordinary picnic…We attended an amazing event at Estancia Culinaria in Miami.  The ten-acre organic avocado farm is an oasis of calm, graced by horse paddocks, a coral rock chapel and walking trails that make you feel like you are anywhere but Florida. It’s a magical place and one worth checking out if you are planning a wedding or special celebration.

FarmPhoto6The avocado farm hosted a sunset Valentine’s Day picnic complete with blankets, champagne, culinary delights by New York Food Co., live romantic music and professionally styled picnic decor by Unearthed Vintage.  The well-planned afternoon was amazing and hopefully the event will turn into a Valentine’s Day tradition.

I am so happy we decided to forgo the usual restaurant reservations for something completely different. It was an afternoon filled with love, new friends and memories!  I can’t wait to do it again, or host my own sunset picnic, soon!
