While it’s tempting to spend the weekend sleeping in late, brunch has always had a special ability to wake even the heaviest of sleepers. As inviting as the bed may seem, there’s just no substitute for a tall cocktail, a good meal and some quality time with your favorite girls. Check out our guide below to see our Skinnygirl approved ways to throw a weekend-making brunch party.
Just as any artist needs her canvas, a truly great brunch needs a table setting fit for a queen. We recommend creating an elegant feeling with a selection of your favorite flowers. After picking a fresh bouquet from you garden (or most likely, the store), skip the vase and opt for some antique glass bottles. A washed out milk bottle for instance pairs perfectly with mason jar cups for a chic, rustic look. Match the flowers to some cute plates and you can bet your food will look just as good as it tastes.
Cook Up a Storm
From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower to the Arch de Triumph, France has created many of the world’s greatest treasures. After tasting our recipe however, you’ll agree that their greatest triumph is none other than French toast. Cook up a batch for your guests and then prepare to experience a love worthy of a sequel to the Notebook. For a perfectly sweet side dish, whip up a batch of Skinnygirl Monkey Bread and then meet your guests on cloud nine.
Drink to Good Health
It may not be 5 o’clock yet, but when cocktails are this good, some things just can’t wait. One drink that always makes us turn the clock forward is a delicious pitcher of Strawberry, Lemon and Basil Skinnygirl Mimosas. With a temptingly sweet mix of Prosecco, fruit flavors and Skinnygirl Sweeteners, your only care will be an empty glass. Watch the conversation flow faster than the libations and you’ll wonder how you could ever dream of sleeping in again.
