‘Fall’ing for Brunch

Me and the hubs are madly in love with all things brunch! As mentioned in my earlier Doh! nuts! post, we had a brunch at our apartment last weekend.

Here are a few of the other goodies that were prepared for the fall-themed brunch:

I'd have to say that these Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes were probably my favorites!

I was most excited for the Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes! I looked online for some pumpkin pancake recipes but when it came time to actually make them, I decided to experiment with the ingredients and add some of my own. The end result was pretty darn good if I say so myself :).

Eggs in Haystack

These Sunny Side Eggs in a Haystack looked really cool and most importantly, they matched the fall theme!

Fruit Salad with Ginger Dressing

How can you make fruit more ‘fall-ish,’ simple, add ginger syrup!

Pear Whiskey

No brunch is complete without a cocktail! This Pear and Sparkling Cider Cocktail recipe may look like it doesn’t call for enough whiskey, but believe me, it is definitely enough! The sippy cup and mocktail was for our special toddler guest :).

Donuts Galore!

I know I know, I’ve already posted about these baked apple cinnamon donuts. I just loved them so much I decided they needed another shout out!

There were a few more items in the brunch line-up, but nothing as exciting as the pictures above. But to be fair, I’ll show you a picture of the full spread.

Suddenly I’m starving…


Pumpkins and Pinecones and Ragweed OH MY!

Fall is hands down my favorite time of year. What better way to celebrate fall than to spruce up the apartment with some fall decor.

Here are some of my nature inspired creations:

Bundle of Fall Foliage

I signed up for a rewards card at Anthropologie and they packed it up in this cute little sack. Of course I asked for one more, filled it up with couscous to weigh it down (I recently discovered that I really don’t like couscous so now I am trying to get rid of it any way I can), and inserted the ‘fall foliage’ (which I later discovered was ragweed…whoops).

Fall Basket Centerpiece

For my centerpiece I emptied out my fruit basket and filled it with some pinecones, acorn squash and baby pumpkins.

Creepy Branch

This branch was a great find! When I found it I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it. But, after I dropped it in this bubble vase, I realized nothing else needed to be done. This was one spooky branch all on its own!

Pinecone Vase Topped With a Pumpkin

Ragweed Close-up

Despite figuring out this is ragweed, I thought this was a pretty picture…

Happy Fall Everyone!
