Winter Brunch

Embrace the pristine brilliance of winter with a silvery-white table.

How do you love winter? Embrace its palette. A landscape covered in brilliant white can inspire sparkle and shine within your home. Invite guests for a warming winter brunch, complete with snow, white dishes, and luminous white embellishments. 

MAKE IT MAGICAL Make a list of white items you can use to create your white-themed brunch: linens, dishes, faux fur. What isn’t white you can mist with a can of spray paint.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER A bird ornament makes an enchanting favor for each guest. Place in a ramekin filled with faux snow.

WHIMSICAL WHITES Crisp, white linens are clasped with white napkin rings topped with paper-flower stickers from the craft aisle. Display atop a white ironstone platter on a Marseilles bedspread of embossed white cotton.


Keep foods simple and tasty. A locally made granola is displayed in a white cylinder bowl with a metallic jewelry findings tag. Guests enjoy knowing all the details, so share what you’re serving with miniature-ID charms. 


Dress up gingerbread cupcakes. Frost with cream-cheese icing. Use a wooden spoon end to make a deep divet in the center of the cake. Fill with maple syrup until slightly overflowing. Serve with rich, dark coffee.

Wow guests with a simple-but-decadent-flavored coffee. To make pecan-maple coffee, mix cream and maple syrup to taste and add to a pot of fresh-brewed coffee. Top each guest’s cup with fresh whipped cream and toasted pecans.


A simple shell wreath is lightly sprayed with white paint and embellished with sheer white millinery leaves. Hang inside on a white door or outside, covered by a protective porch roof.

For a crowd, set up several tables throughout your home. Faux-fur throws make instant tablecloths. Spray pine cones and branches with fake snow, and change out taper candles for all-white ornament spheres. Lay out delicious favorites for your guests to help themselves to, and enjoy a long wintry morning, soaking in the beauty of the season.


Set the scene with simple white dishes assembled on white-covered tabletops. Christmas cards make lovely upcycled place cards when displayed in miniature café au lait bowls with florist-wire stands.
