If you’re an avid follower of the site, then you know I’m a sucker for reinventing the old. With the accessibility of the digital age and the advent of such heavenly websites as Pinterest, you don’t have to look too hard to find competent classic recipes. Want to make a traditional tasting apple pie, you’re set. That is why I like to play with a good thing and you will often find unusual twists on foodie classics in this forum. So, with that said let us dive into a fresh take on the incomparable mimosa. The timeless drink is 50% orange juice to 50% champagne. The simplicity and deliciousness of this recipe is quite genius. But if you are looking to play with the classic a bit for your next brunch, then take a stab at my summery version. And while you’re at it, find some more inspiration for your brunch hosting with today’s uber cool, bohemian stylized shoot. Megan Walsh of Atomic Furnishing and Design gives us tips to start the design process: I was inspired by all of the free spirited bohemian brides that are not afraid of colorful patterns, textures and plants. To keep it from feeling cluttered I anchored this set utilizing our white floors and background. The low reclaimed barn wood coffee table created a casual ambience. Persian rugs, macrame and exotic plants provided a playful background. Choose a mixture of vintage and modern glassware to keep the table looking eclectic. We chose vintage hobnails pink glasses and new amber glass bowls. Choosing fruit that contrasts nicely with all the greenery really brings this table to life. Our table featured orange slices, whole oranges and apples. This set is a bit more casual so not everything needs to be contained in bowl – feel free to let the food spread throughout the tabletop. Selecting bold florals with heavy greenery on the bottom keep with the bohemian feel. The florals used here are salad, umbrella fern, bay, orchids, ranunculus, & a variety of garden roses.
