Camille Styles here, with bits of inspiration for a citrusy spring brunch! In honor of the lovely forecast, I'm planning to start the weekend early with a relaxed get-together full of zingy citrus flavors. Our mood board in shades of lemon + cream takes a similarly carefree attitude...Lemon-Yellow-InspirationBoard-CamilleStyles-cocokelley
 Don a flowy goddess dress and set a table on the lawn with cheerful ranunculus & laid-back succulents. Spend an afternoon nibbling on bundt cake & sipping cappuccinos with a gaggle of girlfriends, soaking up the first blissfully sunny day of the year.
Blend a batch of
limoncello champagne cocktails, and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint for a bright and bubbly way to toast the season.
Monochromatic bunches of yellow tulips, gerbera daisies and daffodils are so sunny; stark white vases keep the look thoroughly modern.
Serve foods in keeping with the color palette for a table that's as visually appealing as it is delicious. An asparagus tart with prosciutto pairs and a spring vegetable frittata are a snap to prepare, and make perfect brunch-y nibbles.
Finish off the feast with this stunning
meyer lemon pastry; a true celebration of citrus! Set it on a cutting board right on the table so guests can help themselves along with a pretty bottle of sweet dessert wine. But be forewarned; this party just might flow right into dinnertime...
