My Big 3-0 Brunch Celebation
I finally got the pictures of this momentous event from my cousin last night...after almost 10 months! Yes, this post is 10 months delayed. I was still pregnant with my daughter Sofia when this happened :) Anyway, better late than never, right? So here it goes...
Last January, I celebrated my 30th birthday by hosting an All-White Brunch celebration here at home. I "catered" my own party so it was extra special. My preparations (like the dough for my quiche lorraine) started the day before and the rest we did early that morning. I had to wake up at 5 am and start cooking already :) It was truly a labor of love. I wanted the people close to me to enjoy my home-cooked food!
My carefully handpicked menu which included my favorite brunch staples
Cheese and Honey Plates
Good Morning! :)
Drinks Station - with Olives on Sticks
Mini Celery Sticks for the Virgin (instead of Bloody) Mary Shots - I was preggy this time so no alcohol allowed! haha!
Grilled Cheese and Tuna Melt Station
Choose your own fruit topping
Condiments for the Salmon
Crustless Ham and Egg Tart
Brunch is served :)
Homemade Lemon Ice Tea with Mint Leaves
My Quiche Lorraine - FCI recipe ofcourse :)
Bagel and Crossaints
Chilled Milk - Fresh Milk and Chocolate Milk

Voila! Finished Product ready to be served!

Thank you for everyone who woke up extra early that weekend to make it! Love you all! Mwah!
Note : I got a lot of positive feedback about this party so I told myself that maybe I should make it a birthday tradition. Whatcha think? :)
