A Birthday Brunch inspired by Paperless Post

Sarah Sherman Samuel
The folks at Paperless Post are starting the conversation about parties (one of my favorite subject matters), so when they asked me to "plan" my ideal milestone gathering, my mind immediately went to my favorite weekend pastime: brunch. Since I have a winter birthday, I don't often get to have alfresco celebrations, but an outdoor brunch is the perfect soiree for a friend's big—or small—birthday, bridal shower, or just for an excuse to gather with pals and celebrate spring.
Paperless Post
Sure, a Facebook event will get people to the party, but let's adult here and send some real invitations to make it special. Don't worry, you don't have to adult too much and lick any envelopes, but Paperless Post has a ton pretty birthday invitations that let guests know exactly what the theme/formality level is for the event.
Apartment Therapy
The next important touch is flowers. For spring, my favorite "arrangements" are loose, in-season blooms. Gather up some mismatched containers (mason jars, old bottles, cleaned-out candle votives all work) and pick up about 10-15 loose stems at the flower shop. Cheaper, and much prettier, than grabbing grocery store arrangements.
Extraordinary Events
Being a host is fun but it's also important to enjoy the party. That's why I love self-serve set-ups. A mimosa bar is perfect for brunch. Just set out a few different juices, some champagne bottles and sliced fruit and let guests concoct their own cocktails.
Happy Wed
Same goes for the food! If you can set-up a little station near a plug, do it hotel style and leave out batter in a pitcher (for easy pouring) with different fillings—blueberries, chocolate chips, etc. For a birthday gathering, I love the idea of these cake batter waffles. Okay now seriously friends, who has a birthday coming up so I can throw this party? Happy celebrating!

  4. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI

    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
