Pretty Pink Brunch with Recipes

On February 16, I had a Valentine Brunch for some friends.  Valentine's Day is past, of course, but pink is 'in' any day of the year!  This could easily be turned into a spring brunch, b-day brunch, and more.

Miniature German Pancakes served as a centerpiece as well as brunch food.

VERY easy to make and very fun.  Fill with any fruit or even a yummy pudding filling.  Thank you to Laura of Real Mom Kitchen for her idea and recipe found HERE.

Fresh fruit in a pink parfait glass sat on each plate.

Pink tulle is an easy, pretty way to dress up a chair.  And you can reuse it over and over again.

Our favors were a cup of Valentine Chex Mix.  Yum!  I gave each of us a different tea cup, too, in which I served hot teas or coffee.  I often like to let each guest choose their own teacup and then I tell them the story of each tea cup...where it came from or when/why it was given to me.

This pastry was made from crescent roll dough.  I put about 1.5 tsps. of sweetened cream cheese on each triangle of dough and topped it with 6 blueberries.  Then wound the ends of the dough up and around like a scarf around a neck, to make it into a little bread bowl.  Bake til alittle golden on top.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

These savory crepes were the BEST part.  The filling is made from a white sauce to which I added fresh parmesan cheese, cooked sausage, sauteed mushrooms, and spinach.  If you've never made crepes, it isn't very hard.  You can make this dish several hours in advance, then bake at 300 til hot and bubbly.  I used THIS recipe but without the lemon sauce and I switched out sausage for bacon.  Added more milk too, to make it the consistency that I needed.  Leave any questions about this in the comment section and I will answer there.

Our tummies were happy and our hearts were full.
It's so much fun being a girl!  :)
