Brunch: 1. a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast or lunch.
Obviously, Merriam nor Webster were Southern. If you will be on Hilton Head Island the weekend of the RBC Heritage, and Easter brunch is far more than a measly meal. Ya’ll, BRUNCH next weekend is… the social event of the year!
Not prepared. No problem. From tantalizing s-l-o-w Southern Cook Books to classy table-wear we’ve got you covered. On a budget? Don’t sweat it. Below are three sure fire ways to class-up your brunch table–without breaking the bank!
Milk Glass Cake Plates are a staple at Louette. They are wildly popular and to be honest, we have difficulty keeping them in stock. A trick of the trade: use cake plates to layer your table–add height and dimension without breaking a sweat. Trendy? Cupcakes are all the rage these days (because, well, who doesn’t love a cupcake!). Use our cute lil’ 6 in. cake plates to sweetly display smaller treats such as cupcakes. Love! ($40-$60)
Nothing is quite as simple and elegant as linen. Our favorite linen table runners, napkins and kitchen towels from our pals at IceMilk Aprons are perfection. The red stitching adds the perfect detail. Add these to your table and you will fall in love. Bonus: they are easy, easy to wash and can be dressed up for your fancy brunch or dressed down for that other meal….lunch. ($15-$30)
Our beaded glass candles from Voluspa come in the perfect Spring pallet. The scents are out of this world. Why we love these? The glass is absolutely gorgeous. Pair a candle or two next to some pretty flowers or place a candle on top of one of your milk-glass cake plates for a cute display. Perfection! ($20-$40)
Not into hosting? Here are our picks for best Brunch spots on the island!
Great for a low-key brunch. In Spring there is no cuter backyard than at A Lowcountry Backyard. Traditional wooden swings and lanterns adorn this backyard oasis. This is no hoity-toity outing! Lowcountry is a family-run restaurant that prides itself on being welcoming to families. You MUST try Nancy’s banana pudding…you will not be disappointed.
The Black Marlin is definitely an island staple. The banana’s foster is out of this world! Party people: the build your own bloody mary station might have you stumbling a couple feet to the Hurricane Bar for a long Sunday Funday! Watching boats float by while brunching’–Now, that’s a SUNDAY!
Exquisite is the only word to describe the latest addition to brunch locations on Hilton Head Island. The newly built Plantation Golf Club is lowcountry-chic at it’s finest. The menu accommodates a wide range of preferences from gluten-free to vegan. The entire restaurant overlooks the Heron Point and Ocean Golf Courses. Breathtaking! Don’t procrastinate this is one place you need to make reservations for.
