I love the idea of hosting brunches and dinners at my house. Every single time I start with epic Martha Stewart-esque plans but ultimately I always end up just winging it with generally limited success and lots of last minute freaking out (usually hollering things like “where the hell are you stupid bread knife!?”).
At our last brunch the lovely Claire generously brought us these super pretty red roses with bright golden flecks through them. Our house has never looked prettier. Thanks Claire!! All that hollering at missing utensils was totally worth it to spend a morning with awesome friends.
