The Perfect Menu for a Brunch Party
The next time you're meeting friends for a wedding party, baby shower, neighborhood gathering, church gathering, or any other celebration, try hosting brunch.
Most brunch foods are quick and easy to make, so you don't have to spend all day in the kitchen.
When planning a brunch gathering, consider serving the food buffet.
A buffet will keep you from jumping in and waiting for people like you would at a more formal dinner party. You can relax and enjoy great conversations with your guests.
Remember, even if you are the host of this party, do your best to have fun. Your guests will be more relaxed if they know that you are enjoying the party as much as they are.
If you are throwing this party for someone who is about to get married or have a baby, they will appreciate your positive attitude and joyful spirit.
Best day and time for brunch
Your brunch can be any day of the week, as long as there are people available to serve you.
If most of your guests have office jobs from nine to five, the best day will be a Saturday or Sunday.
However, if you are inviting people with different hours, choose the day that most of them can attend.
Brunch is usually served between normal breakfast and lunch hours, usually around 10 a.m. M. However, you can choose to start early so guests can chat for a while before eating.
Perfect brunch menu
There are no set rules about what should be on the brunch menu. However, some things will make the party more fun for everyone, including you.
Here are some basic tips for a brunch menu that everyone will enjoy:
- Prepare a buffet so your guests can help themselves. This takes the pressure off you to make sure everyone gets what they want.
- Offer a variety of foods and give your guests many options. If you know someone has a food allergy or problem, make sure you have plenty of options that don't contain the allergen.
- Serve egg dishes that require no last-minute preparation. Quiches and fries are great options.
- Have a colorful fruit tray to add visual interest to the table.
- A multi-tiered plate provides vertical space for more food and adds visual interest to the buffet.
- Instead of making pancakes that soften after sitting outside, make oven-roasted French toast. Once ready, but before serving, you can keep it warm in the oven, even after turning it off.
- If you are serving a large amount of meat for breakfast, such as bacon or ham, cook in the oven to avoid spilling too much on the stove or countertops.
Offer a variety of drinks. If you choose to serve alcoholic beverages, have nonalcoholic options such as orange or tomato juice available.
You will also want to serve coffee and tea. Some favorite brunch cocktails include Mimosas, Screwdrivers, Bloody Marys, Greyhounds, and Irish coffees.
It is also good to offer virgin versions of these drinks.
Regardless of the reason for the brunch, you can choose a fun theme. Here are some ideas to get started:
Garden Party: Bring the outdoors indoors or host an outdoor party if time permits. Make pots with plant decorations (herbs or flowers) and send them home with your guests.
Muffin Brunch: All menu items can be made in muffin cups or served in muffin cups.
Pajama Brunch Party: Have everyone wear their cutest pajamas and fluffy slippers. Serve traditional breakfast foods like bacon, eggs, and toast or cookies.
Coffee and Donut Bar: Serves a variety of coffees and donuts. Make sure you also have some nutritious options like fruits and vegetables.
Fondue Brunch: Eat a variety of fondue items with pots of melted chocolate, cheese, and oil. Serve fruits and cakes with chocolate. Offer cubes of bread, meat, and vegetables with cheese or oil.
International Brunch Party: Serve eggs with salsa, sushi, quiche, egg rolls, strudel, éclairs, and guacamole with fries.
