Out of all the meals of the week, Saturday brunch wins by a landslide. I mean, it’s pretty tough to compete with any meal that involves a decent amount of carbs and bubbly. Beyond the food, we love how casual and comfortable the whole occasion feels. No need to dress up, no over-the-top table settings – just sharing a simple meal. 


But, casual and comfortable doesn't mean you have to do the expected. Today, Camille Styles, the expert in hosting soirees far from ordinary, is showing us how to make your brunch a fun, memorable occasion. We've teamed up with her to shake things up with some global flair – from Israeli shakshuka to Irish ceramics, we've put together quite the global fête for you. 


Here are some of our tips for styling your own noteworthy shindig: 




1 // When it comes to the color palette, think subtle. Leave the bold brights or loud patterns for the Friday night festivities. For a Saturday brunch, go for a more laid-back, calming vibe. We love how Camille chose soft neutrals and subtle shades of blue for this setting.

2 // Host your brunch in a casual, comfy setting that invites people to stop and stay awhile. We've found that a dining room table can kill the weekend vibe by making the whole occasion feel a bit too structure. Instead, we prefer to throw around lots of pillows and seating options to create a space with instant lounge appeal.

3 // For your base layer, start with a cotton or linen tablecloth in an understated pattern. When serving more exotic, colorful food dishes, it's nice to have a clean canvas that lets your creations take center stage. To complement the clean look, style with some white florals or light succulents.

4 // To add to the casual feel of the brunch, go family-style, letting your guest serve themselves from shared plates with lots of flavor combinations. To pull this off, we invest in beautiful functional pieces (like the measuring cups below) that can do double duty in the kitchen. They help with prep work AND style beautifully as small containers on the table too.
