I'm hosting a brunchluck (brunch potluck, for my birthday) and want it to be festive, warm, etc. I'm not sure how to decorate/theme/make it really warm and welcoming given that it's going to be rainy and grey outside. Difficulty level: grad student brokeness and I'm *really* not a decorator, plus additional logistics questions. [more inside]

My wife and I would like to spend a nice Saturday going for a hike with our dog (nothing too taxing - we want to enjoy the outdoors, not get a workout) and also go for brunch in a charming small town nearby. We live in DC and would prefer not to drive more than an hour each way to get there. Any suggestions??

It's strawberry season again, and I expect to be receiving a large haul of local berries this Friday. I'm also planning to have my mother-in-law over for brunch on Mother's Day, and would like to incorporate strawberries into the meal. I've got some good recipes for traditional desserts like cakes/pies/ice creams, but those aren't things I want to serve in the morning. I'm stumped for recipes that seem appropriately brunch-y. What I'm hoping for are recipe suggestions for things that can be integrated into a larger meal featuring eggs, grits, etc. For example, if anyone has a tried and true recipe for strawberry scones or strawberry muffins, that could be good. Fruit salads featuring strawberries as a main ingredient with an interesting dressing? Some kind of strawberry butter to top French toast? Internet.com runneth over with recipes, but I am interested in your proven winners. Thanks!
Are you someone who has worked in a restaurant? Can you tell me why Sunday brunch is apparently the meal people hate to make and/or serve? I have no experience in the food service industry, but as a big fan of brunch, I'm curious for first hand opinions. (Or feel free to tell me that the two examples inside are totally bunk.)
