Christmas Brunch is one of my favorite traditions! Today I’m sharing this fun Rustic Christmas Brunch idea, plus some Christmas Brunch Menu Ideas! I’ve included some items that you can make ahead, prepare in your crockpot or InstantPot and some that you make fresh before serving!

Christmas Brunch is something my sister always hosted when we lived near family! Every Christmas morning at 10am! It’s one of my favorite memories from living near family.

This will be our 4th Christmas away from family and I miss it so much that I decided I was going to start having a Christmas Brunch for my family! Some of my inlaw family lives within driving distance, so I am going to host it on Christmas Eve!

I had an awesome opportunity with team up with Tai Pan Trading and a few of my friends Holly from My Sisters Suitcase, Amy from Liv and Hope and Ashley from Ashley’s Fresh Fix to put together this awesome Christmas Brunch!

We had such a blast shopping at our local Tai Pan Trading for some of the table setting items! We got all the dishes, cups, platters, chargers, garlands, candles, pinecones and table runners! It helped us create the perfect Rustic Table Setting!

We picked up the mini Rosemary Trees from Lowes (you’ll see them again next week with a cute tag I designed for a great teacher gift idea)! We wrapped the bottom in fabric and tied a cotton wool ribbon around it. We put 3 of them along the table with some empty glass lanterns that we filled with pinecones in between them!

Then we added a couple simple green garlands down the center of the table and 2 rustic sticks. Then we added some fresh oranges, flocked pinecones and some ornaments along the the garland. We used the new Hearth and Hand ornaments and they fit in perfectly!

For the actual place setting we chose a simple silver charger and white dishes with a silver border. I sewed some linen napkins (tutorial coming next week) and then topped the napkin with some simple greenery, wrapped in some jute twine!

It was so simple making the plate decor. I bought a simple artificial pine spray and clipped off little bunches. In all honesty, they just pulled off. But, depending on your spray, you may have to clip them. I then grabbed my glue gun and some simple jute twine and wrapped it around the bottom. Then I placed one of the Hearth and Hand Ornaments next to it!

So simple!
