So, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” is about to be deconstructed and reconstructed beautifully into “put all your eggs in the frittata” and “put all your towels in the basket.” Stay with me :-).
Brunch is just the best! I personally love to pick at little bits of food early in the morning; just a coffee and a few nibbles of fruit, a bite of yogurt and granola, and a few bites of leftover kid food as I clean up. But come 10 am, after getting the kids to where they go, a few hours of work, and a little exercise if I’m lucky, well, then I’m absolutely famished! And I usually need a mid-morning break, every day of the week just for mental health. And on weekends, we usually have something crazy in the morning, and another something crazy in the afternoon, and hence, BRUNCH! My favorite meal of the day — every single day of the week! I also love a set table and cloth napkins. You can ask my friends about that; they tease me, but they love it too. It just makes everyone happier to actually sit to eat when it looks so pretty and feels so special, even if just for a few moments. A meal honestly doesn’t take that long to whip up, nor to eat, but it does feel like something more special when you take a few minutes to set the table well. So here’s the news today: we set this gorgeous table entirely with beautiful items from The Home Depot. Who knew they had all these amazing things? It was news to us, but such great news that we’re excited to share it with you too! So here’s how we make a beautiful brunch, on the quick:
As with all lovely things in life, we begin, with coffee. I’ve tried the fancy machines, the not-so-fancy machines, the ones on timers and the ones that are currently in development that I’ve crowd-funded, and which have yet to be fully developed and delivered. And in truth, it’s the easiest, simplest, most beautiful that I enjoy most. Boil water and pour. Voila!
We made a simple frittata: eggs, parmesan, and sautéed zucchini and red peppers. We fill this with all sorts of different combos regularly because there are just so many wonderful ingredients straight from the seasonal garden that work well in a frittata. We baked it to keep it simple and have it come out looking poppingly perfect! This is so easy to pull off in just about any bakeware. And we placed it on top of this gorgeous serving/cutting board that we’ll use for 1 million meals, again and again. That plus a simple baguette and some fruit takes just a few minutes to prepare and makes all of our bellies so happy! Yours too?
We’re all supposed to be drinking half our body weight in ounces of water per day, we know this, yes? So much easier to do when you pour it from such an extraordinary vessel into such a sweet glass and flavor it just a tiny itty bitty bit with a splash of unsweetened cranberry juice.Glasses // Copper Water Pitcher

Kitchen Tables, Seating, and Storage
While we used our own kitchen for this brunch, The Home Depot has a great selection of similar chairs, tables and sideboards. We love mixing modern chairs with more traditional tables, and we especially love the combination of white chairs with wood tables, and pedestal tables in confined spaces like these:
We also find beautiful storage to be a great thing in the form of a sideboard in an eating or dining area. Maybe it’s storage for additional serving items, but often it’s for the art supplies or the candles, or special event and holiday items. These are a few of our favorites:
Bathroom Baskets and Towels
So I pass this sweet bathroom all the time, and while I love its simplicity and the brightness of its mostly white, I always feel like it could use just a little love. We added a few baskets and rolled some cozy towels. It’s nice when you roll towels and don’t need to worry about whether they are perfectly folded and/or who folds them how! And it’s also a relief when you can reach a fresh towel from the sink or shower too. Something about a basket just warms a space as well in its natural texture and coloring. Here are the ones we chose for this spot, and a few others we thought were lovely too.

Et Voila: All the eggs in the frittata, all the towels in all the baskets, and all the news shared, we love brunch, and we love that we can find so many beautiful home decor items from The Home Depot!
