When Life Hands You Lemons...Throw a Citrus Themed Holiday Brunch

Erin Lepperd

Matching their holiday decor to their preppy coastal style, the ladies of Palm Beach Lately added their signature spirit to this bright and happy party. Think garlands and wreaths meet fresh oranges and pops of pink cabana stripes. It's bucking tradition (i.e. no red in site) and is giving us major Florida vibes instead. See even more of this pretty celebration captured by Thompson Photography Group right here. This holiday season, we incorporated our state fruit, the orange, into our holiday style because we love what it stands for – joy, happiness and hope. We always decorate our homes for the holidays with a variety of greenery like centerpieces, garland, trees and wreaths, so it was simple yet stunning to weave fresh oranges, lemons and limes throughout our usual decor. And because we love entertaining, we couldn’t wait to host a Christmas Brunch in true Florida style! For the brunch, Carla Tavolacci with The Event Group created the most beautiful floral and citrus centerpiece and citrus tree and also adorned our wreath by One Kings Lane and new pineapple sconces by Ballard Designs with florals, fresh fruit and greenery. We then set the table with straw placemats, bamboo chargers and gold silverware from our favorite tableware company, Juliska. And our tablescape wouldn’t be complete without our signature pink color, so we used whimsical pink and white plates from HomeGoods, pink cloth napkins, and pink wine glasses by Anthropologie! For a playful twist on the place setting, we included a menu card by Little Lovely Party and set a clementine and magnolia leaf on top. Our brunch menu featured yummy comfort foods, but the vanilla lemon cake with lemon buttercream icing that our good friend Jamie Fago of The Southern Bakery made stole the show!
