Babes Who Brunch

On the Menu Ricotta-avocado toast to serve when the girls arrive. Individual omelets with seasonal greens that are simple to whip up, keep your stove time to a minimum, and can be customized to particular tastes.

In the Glasses Beauty & the Brut (pink coconut water with sparkling wine for heady hydration). A pretty pot of loose dried flowering sage tea.

On the Table Cool vintage-inspired florals and traditional porcelain motifs in jewel tones modernize the ladies-who-lunch vibe.

Breakfast for Two

On the Menu Soft-boiled farmers’ market eggs topped with American caviar feels special without breaking the bank. Toasted soldiers add a satisfying crunch, and make-ahead grapefruit compote is pretty and refreshing.  

In the Glasses Bubbly with pomegranate seeds in your finest stemware looks extra festive—and is an invite to linger in bed
all afternoon.

On the Table Fancy linens, brass flatware, and heirloom-in-the-making tableware delivered via cocktail tray with a side of Sunday crossword.

The All-day Graze

On the Menu Crusty breads with cheese, charcuterie, and potted terrine allow for build-your-own-bites. Fresh, bright melon spritzed with lime adds extra zing. Family-style roasted tomato tart that tastes just as delicious when cool. 

In the Glasses A light saffron-honey sparkler that guests (and hosts) can dip into throughout the afternoon
as a “healthy” libation.

On the Table Colored glassware and mix-and-match pieces pulled from various sets create fun pattern combinations.
