It’s not even December and I’m already feeling behind the ball.  I’ve wanted to put together a fun Christmas brunch and Secret Santa gift exchange for friends for a couple of years now.  I have yet to pull it off.  Maybe this will be the year.  If I can do it, here’s what I’ve been dreaming about.

INVITES // You just can’t go wrong with an online invitation.  Being able to send them out immediately and the ease of RSVP make them my go-to.  This Rifle Paper Co. invite from Paperless Post stopped me in my tracks.  The non-traditional Christmas colors were the inspiration for everything else.  You can also craft it as a Christmas card, which brings me to my next point.  I just noticed they also have a bunch of great PAPER photo Christmas cards.  I’m adding them to my list of sites to check this year.
DECOR // This moody table setting is speaking to me.  There’s black.  I always like a bit of black in my decor, and I love how it contrasts with the bright orange in this DIY wreath.  Again, not your traditional Christmas wreath, but it’s gorgeous.
FOOD + DRINK // Orange and cranberry scones.  Orange.  Noticing a theme here?  This Mushroom and Goat Cheese Frittata needs to go ahead and get-in-nah-belly.  And, I like this delicious spin on a mimosa.
GIFTS // With a group of friends, I think a Secret Santa exchange is the way to go.  Love the simple wrapping on these packages.  I think this t-shirt would be a fun gift and it’s totally brunch appropriate 😉

Do you guys do Secret Santa’s with your friends?  What’s the best or worst gift you’ve received?
