Host A Simple Valentine’s Day Brunch at Home

9 February

My guy and I started a Sunday morning pancake ritual towards the end of my pregnancy that has carried on into life with Rex.  It’s by far the highlight of my weekends!  Greasy spoon diners are our absolute favorite for many reasons (1. you don’t have to fight the brunch crowds, 2. you feel a little better about rolling right out of bed–sometimes without even brushing your hair–and 3. I swear the more low-key the spot the better the pancakes).  On those weekend mornings we don’t make it out of the house, or feel like staying indoors due to the rain I’ve been whipping up the hotcakes at home.  I recently added blueberries and a glass of bubbly into the mix and our simple weekend treat felt instantly elevated.  Surprise your sweetheart / girlfriends with a little pre-Valentine’s Day celebrating this weekend!

Add a splash of St. Germain to your bubbly and bring out the fancy glasses!

Pancakes aside–what really set the scene were the dreamy muted pink and moody florals that have adorned our table this week by Jessica of Oak and Ash.  I’m so happy to have connected with this sweet and talented gal recently–she has such a special eye and creates the most magical of arrangements.

    I am definitely on board with a cozy and relaxing Valentine’s Day at home. I love the bouquet of flowers! Also I feel like I need to bring pancakes back into my life haha.

      I know I kind of always forget they’re easy to make at home! sometimes they feel like only an out to breakfast treat.

  • Such a beautiful post! BTW, I love those shelves in your dining room. They’re so beautifully styled. Where are they from?

      aw thank you!! I know, love that shelving piece–it’s from Design Alchemy in Sacramento x

  • Gorgeous! And have to agree, I think the greasier the spoon, the better the pancakes.

    OMG Rex is adorable, love his dark eyes.

    I love the CoH denim apron, so you!!
