On Saturday, I partnered up with my good friend Christina Norton to throw a brunch.  A lot of time and effort went into the planning of this brunch, but it was well worth it!  Jessie from My Baking Empire, provided the desserts (YUM!)  Elena Hodis created the most beautiful floral arrangements that adorned the table, entrance walkway, and the buffet table.  And Erica Keuter Designs designed all the stationery.

French Country was the inspiration for our brunch, and Christina and I definitely delivered.  The dessert table included yummy treats such as Macaroons, Petit Fours, and Champagne Cupcakes.

The buffet table had the most gorgeous floral arrangement set in an antique watering tin.

The brunch table was accessorized with a 3-tiered cakestand, shot glasses and beer steins overflowing with gorgeous flowers.  

The favors were a hand-painted box that we filled with blooming tea.

And last but not least, the brunch commenced with the initial design of the invitation.  Since it was a hat party, we found it fitting for the invitation to be to delivered in a mini hat box.  Christina and I hand-painted the boxes, coffee stained the feathers, paper shredded the book pages, and hand crafted the book paper flowers.  Inside the box, along with the invitation, we included a pocket watch that was set to the time of the "garden fete."

I want to personally thank everyone that had a hand in this brunch, and I have to especially thank Rick Keuter and Chris Wincek for being so patient with Christina and I :)
