Mimosa Brunch

 
I was introduced to bottomless mimosas in San Francisco, where a number of restaurants (Sugar Cafe!) encourage the delcious brunch special, however I recently and sadly discovered that such a thing does not exist in Toronto! Determined, I decided to hold my own "Bottomless Mimosa Brunch", and used it as the perfect opportunity to surprise four of my favourite people by asking them to be in my bridal party. The surpirse ask came in the form of stir-sticks for the mimosas (made from cardstock, ribbon, patterned tape, and shish kabob sticks). I placed two raspberries on each stick and kept them hidden in the freezer until the first champagne bottle was popped. The frozen raspberries acted as tiny ice cubes, while also providing extra flavour. I filled my apartment with my favourite flower (daisies), and added homemade touches like miniature pompom toppers for the cupcakes, to enhance the gathering. Because I still wanted to include a personal note for each bridesmaid, I put together macaroon favours for each of them to take home.All in all, the event required a few craft supplies (and Pinterest inspiration), an excess of Proseco, and a family-size jug of orange juice.  And they all said "Yes"!
