9 Items To Make Brunch a Thing of Beauty


  brunch (1)
We're a culture that has rallied around brunch as a part of our lifestyle, so much so that the Sunday afternoon eating habit has earned a full-blown spot on every menu—and sparked a full-blown uproar when the threat of taking it away nearly came to fruition (sort of). Yes, the hours between breakfast and lunch is a cherished time indeed, and one that emphasizes the pleasure of waking up late and celebrating lounging the day away by cooking up and serving a variety of heavenly, food-coma-inducing goods that would never see the light of day during the work week. Since this is such a special time between friends—and between you and your stomach—to truly enjoy all that life has to offer, brunch provides the perfect opportunity for making the beautiful occasion of friends and food even more beautiful via serveware that just exists to be looked at. Go on and appreciate your devil-may-care attitude at 1 PM on a Sunday with extravagant foodstuffs, but don't forget to add these stunning items for that final flourish to your meal. You deserve it:
