At Home: Blue-Hued Brunch
Weekends in Los Angeles lend themselves to long brunches in stylish settings with the most interesting of folks to sip a few bellinis with. It truly is a culture out here: from Sunday brunches at the trendy local farm-to-table joint or an al-fresco breakfast in your friend’s backyard, we Angelenos take this meal seriously. Which means the table should be just as interesting as those bellini-imbibing guests.
A tablescape in soft blues, filled with ombre patterns that subtly shift into more saturated tones creates the perfect setting for friends to gather around the table for a breezy bountiful summer brunch. A fresh setting like this harkens the cool blue of the ocean as well as the powder blue of clear summer skies. The bleeding of color from intense to barely there carried throughout the table lends a modern background perfect for those frittatas and croissants.The geometric teapot, candle holders and Frank Gehry vase add a bit of edge to the setting, while the stripes of the sugar bowl and creamer perched next to a hemstitch napkin recall a bit of tradition. Simply add a grouping of white anemones as the centerpiece to round out this blue-hued brunch and you are set to sip Champagne, pass the lemon curd for the fresh baked scones and indulge in thick maple bacon that will all be artisinally placed upon your powder blue dinner plates. Now kick back, fill up and listen to the tales your friends have come to offer as a thank-you for creating this aesthetically awesome brunch.
