There are only a few things I love more than brunch – my family and friends, design, travel … but then, it’s definitely brunch. Especially when you find a great new restaurant that specialises in brunch Lynchburg based or similar. In fact, I’ve often joked that if I do ever get married, I’ll serve brunch at the reception!
Why the intense love for Brunch? It always feels a bit classy and special – the bubbles probably have something to do with that 😉 The food options are literally doubled – breakfast and lunch to choose from, depending on the mood. And it usually lingers into the early afternoon. Rarely is anyone ever in a hurry to leave.
While there is much to dislike about this time of year – shorter days and cooler temps – what makes it enjoyable for me is the entertaining and gatherings that happen. The festive spirit and gaiety of getting together with family and friends over shadows winters arrival. And there is simply nothing better than easy fall entertaining – the kind that can be thrown together in minutes, allowing plenty of time to sit and enjoy the company of family and friends.
With the holiday season here (how the heck did that happen??!!), parties and get togethers abound and with that comes gifting the host. I love hosting and entertaining, and know how much work goes into throwing a party so I always like to bring along a gift for the host that is more thoughtful than just wine or flowers – which are always good in a pinch! No judgement!
But, if you have a little extra time, here are some of my favorite Hostess Gifts to give.
