This delightful party recreates one we hosted for friends on a Sunday morning at the beautiful Turnbull Winery in Oakville, California.
A Sunday brunch with family and good friends is a time to catch up, enjoy beautiful scenery and dine well on seasonal foods. An all-organic menu allows for simple, sustainable and sumptuous fare — wood-fired breakfast pizzas, fresh salads, and a show-stopping sorbet made with delicious Sauvignon grape juice and liquid nitrogen. Whimsical serveware keeps the mood light and gives local produce the presentation it deserves. Beautiful melamine plates that look just like earthenware enliven the table, and let hosts and guests dine worry-free. While not everyone can host a brunch at the stunning Turnbull Winery (turnbullwines.com), anyone can recreate it at home.
A memorable outdoor party requires only good food, good company and a pleasant setting. It can be as small or large as you like, warmed by the sun and the smell of homemade foods. Inspired by the fresh air, sunshine and beauty of Turnbull Winery, we decided to host a lovely brunch. Our stylist started with setting a beautiful table with unbreakable melamine plates, glassware and water hyacinth placemats. Seed packages personalized with each guest's name act as placecards.
One of the most relaxing of parties to throw is a Sunday brunch. Keep the fare simple, the decor fun, and the focus on the company. A menu of pizza and salad is a hearty replacement for both breakfast and lunch, and light enough for the first meal of the day.
Decorating your space with outdoor-friendly dishware, serveware and accessories is an imperative that Pottery Barn makes effortlessly stylish. Our linen PB Classic Napkins and Runner in Flax and Cactus colors set the groundwork for a beautiful table, followed by the wonderfully textured Water Hyacinth Placemats. Our Tivoli flatware, adds a grounding note to the lightweight, unbreakable melamine dinnerware in soft shades of ivory and moss. Mason Jar Mugs and PB Classic Outdoor wine glasses make serving drinks outdoors worry-free. A Supply Cart Tray and Wheelbarrow Salad Bowl present the salads, glasses and decorative accessories with style inspired by gathering the harvest.
At each placesetting, there's a, personalized vintage-inspired seed package tied with burlap string that guests can take home with them as a memento. Download our template and simple instructions on our website.
The food for this brunch is light and savory, featuring two easy pizzas using the freshest of organic ingredients.
