Today I had the pleasure of cooking brunch for my friends/customers. I told them it felt like Christmas because this is the brunch menu I cook for my family on Christmas morning! We all had a great time together, the ticket to this brunch was to bring a $100 or more order plus they got at least 2 SAB sets and there were prizes from $75-$20 plus hostess sets! Everyone was a winner. Below was our menu. I will have a luncheon using the same rules in July when the new catalog comes out and everyone wants to order their new "stuff"! Make sure you are on my newsletter mailing list so you will know when to get your name in the hat.
Menu: Egg Strata, Hash Brown Casserole, Warm Fruit Salad, Cinnamon Apple Coffee Cake, Orange Juice, Coffee
Below were my guest: Mary Capps, Shirley Sorrell and Christy Baldridge
Table Setting~ For my table setting that came about in a crazy way, one night this week my husband was cooking spaghetti for dinner so when I was doing dishes I found tomato sauce cans in the trash and thought what could I do with those. I cleaned them up and spray painted them. LOVE spray paint, it makes wonderful trash to treasure items. I popped some violas in them and used them for their little thank you gifts and table decorations. Do you notice that Bunny cookie jar I had on my dresser last week, well I thought that would be a great centerpiece. I also had different stamped pieces to show the girls that they can bring their stamping into their home decor.
Napkin Ring/book mark ~ I was telling the girls the supplies I made the flower book mark with were all free, I had ribbon from the 2010 SAB mini and the Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper (DSP) and free Ice Cream Parlor Buttons!

Strength and Hope~ this is the card the girls made today, we used this new set from the Summer Mini. Another reason you will want to order this in May is because Stampin UP will donate $2.00 for each Strength and Hope stamp set they sell to the The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I want to give credit to Monica Davis who had this card on her blog and I loved how hers looked and the girls loved their cards today. In May you will also be able to order the MDS verson of this set along with the DSP and embellishments. I will be demonstrating this set starting in May.
Petal Cone Bunny~ I love this little bunny, I demonstrated how to make it today. Jill Olsen, in my upline, sent us a video this week on how to make it. It is adorable. Thank you Jill for sharing.
Spring Banner~ I wanted something springy to put in my foyer and it turned out to large for it so I will have to use another method and smaller letters so stay tuned to see what I come up with.
Thanks for looking!
