Vintage Christmas Brunch
"We incorporated vintage ideas with a modern twist," says Mary Alice. Thoughtful details such as a custom welcome sign and locally produced party favors make their Christmas brunch a merry and memorable one.
Antique-style white wooden chargers and beaded-edge dinner plates play up the party's vintage look. They're topped with vibrant bird salad plates and blue paper boxes, which serve as both place cards and party favors.
As a casual alternative to a formal centerpiece, Mary Alice and Amber arranged multiple bouquets of red tulips, roses, and ranunculus in vintage milk-glass vessels for a monochromatic look with lots of texture.
In keeping with the peppermint theme, they made minty Candy Cane Gimlets using peppermint Schnapps and Sprite. For a fun touch, peppermint candy stir sticks garnish the recipe.
