A couple of seasons ago Kathy and Becky were honored to host Mary Engelbreit and Mark Roberts for an event signing at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store in Midland, Texas. What better way to celebrate their arrival than a Merry and Bright Christmas Brunch? We always make it a priority to celebrate with our guests!
Show Me Pecan-Pie Muffins, Oh My!
We are so blessed to have amazing friends and team members who worked so hard to help us host this amazing event! Alta Lynn’s house was a whimsical wonderland of Mary Engelbreit inspiration, vintage and new and Mark Roberts Christmas Magic!
We hope you enjoy the delicious recipes and Show Me Decorating tips and ideas for celebrating this glorious time of the year, Christmas.
Pecan-Pie Muffins were voted a favorite! Trisha Yearwood shared this recipe on her cooking show and it was everything we hoped a Pecan-Pie muffin could be!
Show Me Decorating tip: Presentation! Collect serving pieces in your homes color palate, example Alta collects all things Black and White, checks, stripes and polka dots, these mix in with all her bold colored dishes including Christmas. Silver cake stands, trays and tiered servers are a great neutral color. The silver also adds the Christmas sparkle!
Pick a theme: Christmas Brunch, choose a color story: Red, Green, Black and White, gather from your dishes and borrow your best friends especially if y’all decorate the same!
Bacon-Egg Breakfast Bites had a surprise tater tot in the middle, yum!
Featuring the bacon-egg breakfast bites in a yellow paper cup was genius!
Tricia planned for weeks and researched, baked and taste tested many recipes before she found a balance of salty, sweet, tangy and spicy! She then set out to find napkins, paper cups and fun goodies to present the wonderful creations in!
The Brunch Egg Casserole was a great dish to make the night before.
Show Me Decorating tip: plan out your serving pieces and layout weeks before your event, gather supplies and plan recipes that can be done in advance so that you too can enjoy the party! Enlist friends as helpers (Alta’s motto)
Maple-Bacon Breakfast Rolls were the perfect mix of salty and sweet, it was like dipping your bacon in syrup while eating a bite of pancake!
……..and we have to share one more!
Burton and Burton is a favorite supplier for Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store and they create the best oven safe Christmas and holiday dishes ever!
Show Me Decorating tip: Collect serving/baking dishes that go from oven to table, or fridge to table, less cleanup!
Alta Lynn’s house was the perfect backdrop for this fun brunch honoring Mary Engelbreit and Mark Roberts.
This Christmas brunch was a dream come true to spend time with two of our favorite artist! Mary Engelbreit and Mark Roberts.
May you have a blessed and merry Christmas!
Happy Decorating y’all!
Becky and Kathy
Show Me a Merry and Bright Christmas Brunch!
Alta Lynn hosted the brunch in her “Mary Engelbreit” inspired home!
Best friends, Tricia and Sheri (also huge Mary Engelbreit fans) prepared amazing delicious brunch dishes.
GeorgeAnn and our Show Me Decorating team decorated this home with a whimsical Mary Engelbreit inspired theme. Lots of touches of bold colors paired with black and white patterns of polka dots and Mary’s signature black and white check.
Festivity and fun was inspired by Mark Robert’s fairies, elves and Santa’s and created Christmas magic in this holiday home.
A fun time was had by all and Alta Lynn’s, Mary Engelbriet inspired home with a touch of Mark Robert’s Christmas magic will be a source of Show Me Decorating ideas for everyone
