Autumn Brunch Inspiration {Vendor Challenge}

We’re continuing our Fall vendor challenge with a fabulous brunch design from Emily of Magnolia Creative. She used traditional Autumn colors in deep rich hues to create the look and I think you’ll agree the details are just perfect {wait until you see the pancakes, and the favors!). Check out all the ideas captured by Daniel Strickland Photography and read what Emily has to say…

When I was asked to participate in this season’s vendor challenge I was so excited because the theme was Autumn. I traditionally don’t do many fall designs so it was fun to so something different. I knew I wanted to use a rich fall color scheme of orange, burgundy and browns, and I wanted to use a lot of burlap. My mother is a huge fan of fall so I raided her decorations and found pumpkins and leaves. I used Dollar Store finds like leaves, mini gourds, moss and some carveable pumpkins I made into candle holders. I sprayed them metallic gold and added some spray glitter. They sat in terra cotta flower pots from my backyard. I created all the paper goods with rich patterns printed on craft paper. I used a beautiful handmade gold paper that I accented with twine to give it a rustic feel.

I knew I wanted simple foods and to do something with pancakes. Charynn from Two Sugar Babies created wonderful toppers with edible gold glitter to top the pancakes and also serve as place cards with the guests names written on the leaves. I also made egg and bacon cups, croissants, salmon cups and mini donuts served with coffee drinks with cups and striped straws from My Little Love. The food was served on wood stumps and hand made white serving pieces. Favors were macaroons from Aly B’s Bakery a local Shreveport bakery. Several different colors were made to give a somewhat ombre effect in the push pop container. They rested in a wire basket with Spanish Moss and coordinating tags.”

Doesn’t this party design make you want to plan for brunch this weekend!? I love how everything is put together simply but elegantly. The pancakes with toppers is genius, and the push pops filled with macarons is a great way to end the party. I hope you’ll give these ideas a try!

  1. Fall is my favorite seasons. This display makes me love it more! :)

  2. I am seeing ideas for brunches and breakfast gatherings all over the place the last few days, which is making me really excited to organise one with friends. And autumn is the perfect time, because there is so much good food you can use for interesting breakfasts!
    I love all the natural additions in this, the logs as plate stands, the leaves and gourds…
