Sunflowers and brunch. Is there anything better? Looking for simple late summer entertaining and tablescape ideas? Wait until you see this sunflower brunch table setting and menu idea.
Nothing says summer quite like a bouquet of sunflowers, am I right?
Sunflowers are so pretty and very easy to grow.
I start them every year from seed about mid-May each spring.
And they are a pure joy with every bloom!
With sunflower season well underway, I hosted a fun sunflower brunch for some amazing friends this week.
Wait until you see this cute sunflower brunch tablescape idea!

Sunflower Brunch Table Decor and Centerpiece Idea for the Dining Table
To me, the most important part of any table design is the centerpiece.
It can be a simple arrangement.
Or one that is a bit complex.
For this sunflower tablescape idea, my centerpiece is simple with fresh-cut flowers and greens from my cut flower garden.
For a simple centerpiece, I cut some pretty sunflowers from the garden and tucked in some accent flowers like this calendula from the market.
To add some greenery to this simple bouquet, I added hosta foliage from my garden to make it look a little fuller.
Doesn’t it look so pretty?
Sunflower Brunch Table Decor Idea
I decided to host my sunflower brunch in my outdoor dining space on the deck.
To decorate the table, I layered a jute table runner beneath my simple centerpiece.
I placed the centerpiece on top of a wood slice disk to add a little more height and texture to the table.
Aren’t they the cutest?
Sunflower Brunch Menu Ideas
For the brunch, I put out some freshly baked croissants, bagels, and apple crumb muffins with some fresh fruit.
I’ve got loads of zucchini growing in my raised garden beds right now, so it’s the perfect recipe to use them in.
In addition to this delicious quiche, I also made this recipe for cucumber sandwiches.
It’s a great light-bite finger food that is great to serve in summer while cucumbers are in season.
They are perfect for brunch, tea party or picnic date.
Now that we’ve got some dishes ready for our this gorgeous brunch.
We need to serve some cocktails and other refreshing beverages.
If you are looking for something that can be served with or without alcohol, you can’t beat recipe for refreshing strawberry lemonade.
And what would brunch be without a mimosa?
I know there are a few different versions, but I love the traditional orange juice and champagne.
If you want to try something different from a mimosa, you’ve got to try this Bellini recipe.
It’s light, fruity, and aromatic.
Perfect for brunch!
Have you ever had a bellini before?
If not, you’ve got to try this one.
I was considering making this awesome peach sangria recipe but decided it was a little too early for sangria.
And have you ever tried watermelon sangria?
If not, it’s a must-try.
It’s very refreshing and I have the perfect recipe for it!
