Girly Fall Harvest Brunch

Guys! FALL IS OFFICIALLY HERE. I just love everything about this season. The scarves. The crunchy leaves. The apples. I don’t want it to end! I especially have taken a liking to the decor recently. So often I think we get tied up with decorating our homes for Christmas, but we often forget the deliciousness of the colours & textures of Fall decor. While it’s not necessarily a ‘holiday’, I think it’s important to appreciate the beauty of the season, before the white stuff comes!

And with decorating often comes entertaining. I’m not going to lie – when I know I’ll be hosting guests, I immediately start brainstorming tablescape ideas. I could be serving Kraft dinner, but the table settings need to be on point!

So when I threw a small brunch for myself & good friend Lisa, I wanted to go all out with the decor. I wanted it to be seasonal, with fun girly touches for the both of us to enjoy.

I always like to give my guests a little memento for them to take home. This being a girly brunch between two besties, I thought nail polish was just the ticket. These Essie polishes in the shade ‘Angora Cardi” matched the decor and are the most perfect creamy, deep dusty rose.

To coordinate with the colour scheme, I thought I’d incorporate a quick DIY which I prepared the night before. Using small store-bought pumpkins, I spray painted them using Krylon’s Metalic Paint in a rose gold finish. I taped off the stems & voila! A 10 minute transformation! 

img_0306-2I am slightly obsessed with fresh cut flowers in real pumpkins. This was my first time trying it, but can guarantee you it won’t be my last! Yes it’s a bit more work but at least I got yummy pumpkin seeds out of it! Both the pumpkin & florals are from Loblaws!
