Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with my closest friends and family at an intimate brunch.
The theme of the day was bubbly and brunch, and we spent the day laughing and loving over mimosas and a homemade brunch.
When I decided to have this brunch, I wanted to do something like Oprah's favourite things show. But let's be serious, I do not have Oprah's cash flow, so my twist was making my favourite foods.
The menu included: Belgian waffles, macaroni and cheese, coconut french toast, vegetarian baked beans, sautéed kale, fried chicken wings, jerk chicken skewers, and ackee and saltfish spring rolls. I wanted to combine my love of Southern cuisine and my West Indian heritage. The food was an absolute hit with my sister-friends.
Having this brunch was a great way to start off my new year. I really loved the small, intimate vibe and appreciated the fact that people got the opportunity to share their memories and well-wishes for my future. Plus it was fun to have my guests bring their chic game and dress it up on a Sunday.
