Sweet Southern Brunch Party at CJ’s Off the Square
Who doesn’t love a fabulous brunch?! Maybe that is why more than ever, people are centering their celebrations around this popular mealtime. From baby showers to bridal showers and weddings, brunch is a memorable way to mark a milestone. As well as a good excuse to break out the bubbles! The garden at CJ’s Off the Square has all the inspiration needed for hosting a sweet southern brunch party, featuring vintage-inspired rentals and classic serving ware pieces.
Set the Scene
If you’ve ever enjoyed brunch then you know that the goal is to create a setting that is sophisticated yet casual. A space where people feel special, enjoying a decadent meal. With this in mind, your tablescape is key. We love starting off with tables dressed in bright linens, such as Blush Shimmer. For a fun extra layer, top it off with a textured runner or overlay. For seating, our Acrylic Carrigan Side Chair will bring a modern contemporary touch – as will any of our acrylic seating options.
For a look that is equally airy but a touch more rustic, you could also feature our Grayson Farm Table or White Wash Round Farm Table. Either of these pieces will look stunning standalone or can be decorated with a soft runner, like Bloom Chiffon or Champagne Lace. As with any brunch, fresh floral centerpieces are required! Place bright or neutral-colored blooms in our elegant Square Glass Vases. If you’re hosting a large party, it doesn’t hurt to throw a few bistro tables into the mix!
Then Set the Table!
Of course, the real star of a southern brunch party is the food! For which you’ll need to create an impressive tablescape. One of our favorite ways to create a memorable table is by featuring serving ware with textures. Start with our White Wash Rattan Charger, stacked with our dainty Darcy China and Darcy Bone China Charger. These pieces are the perfect combination of old and new! Pair it with our Abby Flatware, or Austin Flateware if you prefer gold.
To complete the place setting you’ll also need glassware, for a variety of popular brunch-themed beverages. A water goblet is always essential, and our Hob Nob Goblet is a stunner. It also pairs beautifully with our Heirloom Tea Cups and Saucers, for a quaint vintage touch for serving hot coffee or tea. For an especially well-thought-out table, you might also feature a Silver Coffee/Tea Server. Along with a matching Carson Silver Cream and Sugar Set, it will be a fun classically southern detail.
Create a Chic Lounge
It’s not brunch without mimosas! Creating cozy spaces to sit and sip will ensure that they feel comfortable enough to linger and mingle. A lounge will also be a comfortable and photo-ready spot for opening gifts. Our Everly Sofa and Chair are a beautiful pair – not to mention incredibly comfy! If you need extra seating, add in our Winstead Grey Tufted Bench. You’ll also want a place where people can set their drinks, like our Cheval Gold Mirror Side Table. Or our larger Blanche Coffee Table.
Speaking of drinks, another round of glassware is a must. Serve up mimosas in our Pure Champagne Flutes – placing glasses on our Boxwood Wall in Champagne Shelves, or displayed on the White Barback Shelf for stunning presentation. Provide a variety of fresh fruit juices in carafes, along with seasonal fruits and cheese on silver serving platters. Sparkling water is also a great option to have on hand for a mom-to-be, or kiddos in tow!
