Autumn Jubilee wouldn’t be complete without a pretty table and some yummy ideas for an Autumn Brunch. The idea of an Autumn Brunch reminds me so much of my mother. She and I loved to read cooking magazines and cook together, and never more so than when pumpkins were in season and a chill was in the air. We once hosted an Autumn brunch for our extended family of 15 guests with an all day affair starting with a tea breads course and working our way through more hearty dishes ending with a pumpkin roll cake, all while chatting and watching football on TV. It lasted hours, and we loved every minute of it.
With those memories filling my thoughts and warming my heart, I set out a large ceramic pumpkin on the placemats I made a few years ago. I added the color corn and crackle glass votives to both sides.
For the place settings, I set out the brown chargers, and added brown napkins held with my pumpkin napkin rings.
The place settings were completed with white stoneware topped with my autumn leaf small plates, and everyday flatware. The pumpkin bowls are set out for cereal, and glasses added for water or juice.
A simple setting, festive and fall-like.
OK, so now, what do we eat? Today, everyone is a winner with a round up of some of my favorite fall recipes! First, my original delicious Pumpkin Orange Bread. Download the PDF for this recipe – Pumpkin-Orange-Bread
See this post for making Perfect Breakfast Eggs.
Breakfast for Thanksgiving day (and many years Christmas Day as well) is usually a baked egg dish with sausage or bacon and lots of cheese. I haven’t done a post on it yet, even though I have made it year after year. This year I’ll try to remember to get photos and give you my recipe. It is flavorful, cheesy deliciousness with hot coffee and scones or biscuits. I am reworking my scone recipe and should have that for you soon as well.
