Ladies Who Brunch


‘Twas the month before Christmas, When all thru the mall, all the ladies were brunching, and having a ball.

There was fashion and food and holiday decor, that left all of us yearning for more.

The Charlotte Observer recently hosted a holiday brunch in the center court of Southpark Mall, that spoiled and pampered each guest.

Reid’s Fine Foods provided a delicious selection from their brunch menu.

Of course no brunch is complete without drinks!

We were treated to three demonstrations to help us through the holiday season.

Stylist and Fashion Insider Stacee Michelle got it started with holiday fashion. “”Tis the sequins” was her theme.

Sequins and fur and lamé…..oh my!!!

Chef James Loftus treated us to a cheese board demonstration.

He suggests serving 3-5 cheese selections with varying boldness profiles, brought out of the fridge about an hour before guest arrive.

Display on a marble or wood board with arugula as a garnish. Cured meats, pickled veggies and nuts add color and variety. Finishing up with basic and flavored crackers and jams or even a honeycomb complete the masterpiece. 

Southpark Stylist Suzanne Libfraind brought us decorating ideas for Hanukkah, Kwanza and Christmas.

She gave ideas for the ever important Hostess gifts.

As if the morning wasn’t fabulous enough there were also giveaways supplied by Southpark merchants. This Diva even won a couple of great prizes!

No holiday event is complete without the Big Guy himself.

Santa stopped by to spread even more holiday cheer.

Everyone left with a swag bag from Sugarfina and lots of holiday cheer!
