Brunches & Blood Oranges

2016_03_11-JennisTable-blood-oranges-022

Today’s post is a sunset-hued citrus extravaganza. Blood orange season is short, so I love to make the most of it. This time it’s with a beautiful blood orange brunch.

Fresh blood oranges are sweeter than standard oranges and, of course, they have a gorgeously dappled ruby colour. Whatever you can do with an orange, you can do with their crimson cousins, but with an added dash of colour and aroma. For brunch, I made a fruit-studded yoghurt platter served alongside freshly squeezed juice. For something a little heartier, I made Blood Orange Marmalade and syrup to serve on toast or pancakes – just wait until you see the deep red colour! Continue reading

Porridge, Chia & co: An Autumnal Breakfast Party.

2015_10_05-JennisTable-autumn-porridge-31

Autumn has been creeping up on us for a while now, but it’s not all drizzle and gloom! It’s finally porridge weather!

The days are darker and the evenings chillier, and I’m sure I’m not the only one reaching for cozy food to counteract the cold. But why stop at a quick breakfast on a weekday morning? Why not throw a Weekend Breakfast Party, and invite friends over for a colourful, creamy, crunchy, fruity feast?  With a helping hand from cheerful tableware, it’s a sure-fire way to inject joy into these grey-skied days.

Mother’s Day Brunch: Flowers, Wellies & Paper Hats!

2015_03_09-Jennis-Table-Mothers-Day-10b2015_03_09-Jennis-Table-Mothers-Day-28

Today’s blog post was inspired by…a hat! As a primary school student, my son made me a fabulous paper hat as a Mother’s Day gift. It’s blue, enormous, and covered in candy-coloured flowers. The hat is a special childhood keepsake, and a very appropriate inspiration for a Mother’s Day Brunch, don’t you think? With the hat in mind, I created a display revolving around pastels and candy colours, fresh spring flowers, and DIY decorations made from paper. Today’s post features gorgeous products from Anthropologie and Designers Guild, not to mention Hunter wellies and paper goodies from Roger la Borde. Scroll to the bottom for shopping links and ideas.
