Buddy the Elf Holiday Brunch

“Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?”

Last year I started an fun tradition at our house. Our Suggs Family Brunch! A way for our friends and family to gather and kick off the holiday season – with brunchy-lunch & cookie decorating. The theme was “Buddy the Elf”.  ELF has to be my favorite holiday movie of all times and thought it would be the perfect inspiration for our annual holiday Brunch. I hope you enjoy the pics and details below! PS:   My favorite color is black ;).

I mixed the traditional red and green holiday color pallet with a little baby blue to create this cheerful get together. I was so excited to work with the fabulous Anders Ruff Designs on the inspired coordinating printables. The “Buddy the Elf” style silhouette was my favorite part!

The main Brunch table consisted of traditional brunchy foods: savory mini quiches and roll ups, bagels and cream cheese, and lots of cakes and donuts! Being in the south, no table is completewithout some Chick-fil-a Chicken Mini’s (which were the hit of the brunch). I wanted the brunch table to display Buddy’s journey from the North Pole to New York. Buddy passes through the Candy Cane Forest (the peppermint brownie cake pops) and through the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops (pastries with fondant gumdrops) then through the Lincoln Tunnel (the chocolate covered oreo tunnel).

The dessert table had beautiful Buddy the elf fondant cupcake toppers, delicious full size and mini cupcakes, amazing Buddy the Elf sugar cookies, and assorted cookies & French Macarons. I just love the E-L-F lollipops! So perfect and absolutely delicious!

The beverage station had Reindeer Root Beer, Orange Juice, Champagne and Milk – perfect to wash down all those sweets! Naturally, we served the “World’s Best Cup of Coffee”. I had to resist the urge to constantly congratulate guests on drinking the World’s Best Cup of Coffee a la Buddy the Elf. Finally, a little hot cocoa station is a must for holiday parties.
