Brunch is all the rage these days! I love the trend and I love a good mimosa. :)
While brunch is an amazing way to spend time with friends and family, the inspiration for throwing your own event can be heavy on the feminine. Pinks, florals, shabby chic, and bright colors seem to be the norm, and while that's beautiful, I wanted to focus on something different.
Enter....the masculine brunch!
This isn't just for the guys - but for anyone who wants something unique, fresh, and fun. I came up with two inspiration/mood boards for two different feels.
The first one is the more earthy and clean look:
I really love greens with a mix of black and white. I wanted to incorporate some clear and acrylic touches as well: the invitation, the legs of the table, the chairs, and the miniature food covers are all clear. I love this look and how it adds a modern touch!
For the second look, I went straight to the lodge - a mix of leather, blues, wood, and bourbon:
It still gives a sophisticated look with color - while not being overly feminine. And nothing says boozy brunch for the guys more than a bourbon cocktail!
I hope you enjoyed some of these unique, masculine brunch options. Let me know if you decide to do something similar at your next event!
