Gather your friends for an easy girls’ brunch…enjoy yummy food and lots of chatting! Get all the details about the simple decor, adorable dishes, and sure-to-please menu.
I recently visited a friend of mine who lives on the most adorable farm. You all know I love farmhouses of any kind, and I really just wanted to move right in with her! It’s just a lovely home, and so cozy. While I was there, we hosted a spring girls’ brunch. She made the most delightfully delicious food, and we just sat and ate and chatted with our friends. It was perfection.
I’m excited to share all the details with you, because you really can plan and host an easy girls’ brunch with the time that you have. A few simple details will go a long way.

Setting a Spring Farmhouse Table
My friend took care of the food, and I was in charge of setting the table. My go-to centerpiece when I’m setting a table is a pitcher of fresh flowers or greenery, depending on the season. Sometimes I’ll get them from my own yard, or pick them up at a local grocer. You can buy them from a florist, but be prepared to spend a lot more money. I found these gorgeous fresh tulips for only $6! I placed them in a white pitcher, and it was perfection. So simple, but they add color, height, and style to any table in just minutes. And anyone can do it!
I love love white dishes, and they’re a staple in my kitchen. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion, and I adore their fresh and clean look. These are from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart, and I adore them! Don’t you love the pretty detailing around the outside, and the shape that adds so much character? Me too!
I went with gold flatware and lovely white napkins with subtle gold lines in them to pull it all together. The tall clear drinking glasses came as a set, along with a gorgeous pitcher that we used to serve lemonade. Just a few minutes were all I needed to set this beautiful spring table!
My darling and talented friend made all the food for our brunch, and I’ll tell you now, we were in heaven!
- Strawberry Summer Salad
- Baked Tomatoes
- Lemon Cream Pie
- Chocolate Tarts with Malted Cream
- Swiss Tarts
- Ding Dong Bundt
- Cheese Plate
If you’re on a time budget, consider making the salad, then buying a dessert or two and croissants from your favorite bakery. A cheese plate is easy to put together after buying the ingredients from your local grocer.
We used all white serving dishes, which made the beautiful colors of the food really stand out. They added beauty and simplicity to the table. I found all of the dishes at Walmart–by Better Homes & Gardens–and they’re perfect for both every day and entertaining! (See source list at the bottom of the post.)
The best part of all was being able to sit down and just talk with no interruptions. Being a mom is so wonderful, and I absolutely love it, but it’s so important to have time with friends, and take time for yourself too. Honestly, it’s just what I needed.
