Whether you are with the love of your life or if your looking and swiping right Valentineâ€™s Day is one of those holidays that focuses on the ones you love. If it’s your man or your besties we thought we would share a little Valentineâ€™s Day inspiration shoot that we think everyone will love no matter what your relationship status is. Brunch is one of my most favorite fun to get together and celebrate â¤
We wanted to share with you how to host a fabulous brunch with your loves while shopping local and took over Unit 29 at Mason + Grove to do it!
A Touch of Decor
For this beautiful Valentine’s Day brunch we brought out the old and brought in some new to complete this look.
I don’t know if anyone is like me that they put a whole swack of China on their wedding registry and never use it. I’m so scared that I’ll break the darn stuff but really it’s just being neglected. So I pulled out all my wedding China for the Valentine’s Day brunch. Creamy whites and hues of gold were the perfect touch.
Flowers are always a sign of love and beauty. Swish Flowers showed us the most magical array of florals. For a Valentine’s Day brunch they used a melange of pink, corals, reds and oranges. The orange is a great punch of color to tie in the mimosas right. And what’s a love Day brunch without some bubbly? I made a quick trip to Hicks Fine Wines to pick up the perfect refreshments.
Eat Cake For Breakfast
A notion that requires no explanation. Cake for breakfast is always a good idea, Â brunch or not. You’ve earned it.
Capture The Moments
You’ve put the work in already so you may as well snap a few pictures to relive it all.
Spread The Love
I always love to treat the ones I love with something sweet. The 4-pack box of candy cubes that Suguarfina makes are so cute and Swish Flowers has an unreal selection to choose from!
One of the best staples to any brunch is a good cup of hot coffee – our local brew came from Good Earth. I’ve totally become a coffee snob and have perfected the art of coffee with almond milk.
In blender, blend:
- 1 cup of soaked almonds
- 3.5 cups of cold water
- 2 dashes of cinnamon
- 4 dates
- A dash of salt
- Blend until all smooth.
- Strain almond milk.
- Store in mason jars for a week in the fridge.
Sip away as this concoction of coffee and frothed almond milk is a total game changer for me.
Skip The Dishes
We’ll skip the cooking dishes at least. St. Albert has the new app, SkipTheDishes.com, where you can order in your favorites. Save yourself some time and prep work and order in from your favourite St. Albert restaurant.
