Paris Inspired Springtime Brunch

Our Texas weather has been all kinds of crazy lately.  For the most part we’ve enjoyed a rather mild winter, but lately we’ve been hit with record low temperatures, ice and snow and while we loved having a few fun snow days I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring.  I can’t think of a better way to welcome warmer weather than with a Paris Inspired Springtime Brunch.

This month’s Michaels Makers Challenge is all about Springtime in Paris with lots of Parisian-inspired projects, plus an exciting new contest where you enter to win the trip of a lifetime to Paris!  But, first let me show you how to welcome spring with a beautiful, romantic and easy springtime brunch, perfect for two!

Hello Spring Sign

Paris Inspired Brunch

Dining al fresco is one of my favorite parts of spring, it adds an enjoyable dimension to dining and encourages an appreciation for the slower pace of life.  So embrace the warmer weather, set up a bistro table outside, create a simple Parisian inspired menu with bright touches of spring and enjoy brunch with someone special.

You can’t welcome spring without flowers. Michaels has a fantastic selection of floral bouquets and these fresh blooms will be around long after spring is over.  I put my new floral bouquet in my vintage milk glass vase and stacked it on books with the turquoise chalkboard frame I picked up at Michaels.

While I love spring I don’t have a green thumb and I admittedly have a hard time keeping plants alive.  Which is why I love the vast selection of greenery at Michaels.  I can spruce up my porch with touches of spring, like the planter box full of succulents and a metal watering can with spring blooms without having to worry about them dying.  An old frame, chalkboard paint and my rough sketch of the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris and my porch is ready for my Paris Inspired Springtime Brunch.

I always have an abundance of baskets, not only are they practical but they make a stylish way to serve fresh croissants or pastries.  I found little mini pie dishes that perfectly matched my new spring napkins and used them to make individual mini quiches.  Add some fresh fruit and you’ve got a simple and delicious Parisian inspired brunch.
