Style in Spades :: Christmas Morning Brunch

December 17th, 2012

Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of Christmas morning: waking up at the crack of dawn, reaching deep into the bottom of my stocking for every last treasure and devouring thick, warm slices of my mom’s famous almond kringle with mugs of hot cocoa. Now that I have a daughter of my own, I’ve been thinking about starting some special traditions for Phoebe’s first holiday, so we’re inviting our families to meet at our house for a Christmas morning brunch and gift exchange. Thought that our collaboration with kate spade new york was the perfect time to give it a test run, so I invited a few of my favorite families to celebrate early – blazing fire, presents under the tree, stacks of pancakes and all. Click through for all the details shot by Buff Strickland, including the kate spade new york pieces that inspired the entire look. And just in case you missed the first in our series, hop on over to check out a cozy holiday open house!

    Super cute decor! And I love your rule of thumb – will definitely have to remember glassware on right, bread plate on left – I always mess that one up!

  17. […] Celebrate: My family makes a huge breakfast on Christmas morning right after opening presents, and it is one of the best parts of the day. This bar cart-turned-coffee station is as cute as can be, and rolled into the dining room, it would lend itself perfectly to a hearty morning meal where everyone stays at the table long after the plates have been cleared.
