Hi there, Discover readers! I’m so glad that spring is finally here, aren’t you? There’s something about the weather warming up that gets me in the mood to entertain. We live in a small town now and don’t have many options for going out to brunch, so one of my favorite things to do on weekends is to recreate a fancy restaurant experience at home. To get started, I always include my weekend brunch in my menu planning for the week, so that I can shop for food early and also plan my tabletop. Today, I’m excited to share with you one that we repeat pretty regularly: Migas & Mimosas.
When I think of a Tex-Mex brunch, I immediately think of a bright tabletop with lots of color to go with the colorful food I’ll be preparing (more on that later!). There are so many great printed pieces in the World Market dinnerware collections right now that I thought it would be great to mix and match them a bit. I love this Bettina Scalloped Serving Bowl (with the print inside) to serve my main dish, with these Ethel Dip Bowls for salsa, guacamole and sour cream and the wood accents on the Sawyer Flatware Collection to bring some earthiness to the table. I’ve also chosen to do solid aqua buffet napkins to balance the print on the scalloped dinner plates.
Since I’ll be serving a few different beverages, I kept most of my drinkware simple glass (with stemless champagne flutes being a sleek favorite) with a little bit of subtle color on handles of these Embossed Bettina Coffee Mugs.
I always like to have some flowers on the table, especially on the weekends and to really feel like we’re doing something special. For this particular brunch, I like the idea of floating a single flower in a bowl of water and these glass tasting bowls are actually perfect for setting around the table and coordinating with the bright colors in the serveware.

Now that we’re all set up, it’s time to start cooking! A Tex-Mex brunch is always a favorite of mine and I’m excited to share one that we make all the time.
Cheers and happy brunching!
