Fall Brunch and Flowers

Back in November – the weekend before Thanksgiving, in fact – my parents threw a brunch at our house for people they and I knew who are in their twenties who live in Boston. This meant that some of my friends from Vanderbilt who live here came as well as others that my parents know through their experience with UMaine and our church.

It was a wonderful time! My mother made so much incredible food: gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip bread, banana bread, gluten-free coffee cake, strata, and a spiral ham. We also had a mimosa and pomegranate mimosa bar and, of course, plenty of coffee. I had so much fun, and so did our guests. Here’s just some of the set-up for the event!

Aren’t those flowers gorgeous? They arrived on Friday before the brunch and lasted until after Thanksgiving, so at least a week. They were clearly packaged carefully, which is great because receiving flowers ordered on line definitely makes me nervous. What if they are squished before they arrive? But I definitely didn’t have that problem with these flowers.

These are the Peace flowers, but there are so many different types of bouquets. The flowers are cut the day that you order, which makes for better quality flowers once you get them and a longer lasting bouquet. Oh, also, their farms practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming, and they only cut what they sell, which means no wasted flowers.

The bouquets are a flat $40 with shipping included, but use this link to get your first bouquet for free!
