The time has come to acknowledge something we all know to be true – brunch blows every other meal out of the water. Not quite breakfast, not quite lunch, we love brunch because it is all about choice. In the mood for something sweet? Savory? Alcohol before noon? Brunch does not judge us! Here at Paper Source, we have everything you need to host a brunch right out of the comfort of your own home in three easy steps.


Step 1: Set the Table. Colorful and chic, these table settings set the tone for an enchanting summer morning. Cut a table runner to fit your kitchen table, and add a hint of  sparkle with our confetti paper placemats.  A must-have are Vintage Milk Bottles – they make charming decorations and are great for holding snacks or your favorite summer flower. Add modern flair to your home by hanging our adorable trend party fans above your buffet or around your windows!


Set 2: Create a Pretty Place Setting. Continue elegant and warm accents with our trendy gold confetti coasters from kate spade new york.  These shimmery coasters look so cute under our Govino Wine Cups, and both items are reusable! The best cure for a Saturday night out is a Sunday morning mimosa – Sparq Wine Pearls keep your cocktail cold without watering it down, and they are effortlessly classy. We know that preparing brunch is no piece of cake (reminder that cake is acceptable at brunch – another reason why we love it) so save yourself time cleaning up with our stylish gold foil paper plates.


Step 3: Serve up great food and drinks. Once your alluring brunch scene is complete, fill your plates and glasses with recipes from our favorite summer cookbooks. Bring delicious drink  infusions to the table with help from Infuse: Oil Spirit Water. This book offers over 50 creative drink recipes – including Grapefruit tequila and Cold-Brew Coffee! Get inspiration from The Forest Feast – which provides beautiful watercolor artwork along with yummy recipes for healthy eating, allowing you to indulge in food that is good for your body! (And have more room for that cake, of course.)
