Wonderful Tips to Host a Brunch Party
The next time you're meeting friends for a wedding party, baby shower, neighborhood meet-up event, 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.
Etiquette for a Brunch
When planning a brunch gathering, consider serving the food buffet. A buffet will prevent you from jumping in and waiting for people like you would at a more formal dinner. You can relax and enjoy great conversations with your guests.
While there are no hard and fast rules for inviting people to brunch, it's always best to give guests plenty of time to add the party to their schedule. If you can, invite them a few weeks before the event.
Whether you're sending a written invitation, email, or text message, it's best to request an RSVP to find out how many people to expect. If you don't have an answer from someone before it's time to buy your menu ingredients, there's nothing wrong with calling to see if they come.
Best Day and Time for a 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 nine to five office jobs, the best day will be a Saturday or Sunday. However, if you are inviting people at different times, choose the day that most of them can attend.
Brunch is generally served between normal breakfast and lunch hours, usually around 10 a.m. M. However, you can choose to start early so guests can chat before they start eating.
Perfect Brunch Menu
There are no definite 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:
- Make a buffet for your guests to serve 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 French fries are great options.
- Have a colorful fruit tray to add visual interest to the table.
- A multi-layered plate provides vertical space for more food and adds visual interest to the buffet.
Instead of making pancakes that go limp after sitting outside, make oven-baked 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 a large splatter of dirt on the stove or on the countertops.
Offer a variety of drinks. If you choose to serve alcoholic beverages, there are non-alcoholic options, such as orange or tomato juice. 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.
How to Make Your Brunch Stress-Free
One of the best ways to be a good hostess is to relax. It is not always easy, but there are a few things you can do to eliminate most of the stress.
- Make a list of everything you need to buy, including ingredients and decorations. If you don't have enough chairs yet, buy, rent, or borrow ahead of time.
- Do as much prep as possible the night before. Organize plates, cups, glasses, napkins, and silverware. Place the tripods where you want to place the pans so you don't have to move at the last minute.
- Put clean hand towels in the bathroom that guests will use. Make sure there is enough soap in the dispenser.
If you want to place the cards, write your guests' names on a pretty card and place them in little frames so they can take home later. They will love having a new photo frame for their children or pets.
- Decorations can be as elaborate or simple as you like. Guests will be delighted with a table full of food and some well-placed flower arrangements. However, if you want more, you can add more decorations. Be sure to leave room at the tables for your guests' food and drink.
- Start a conversation to keep people engaged. You may not need them, but it's nice to have something to lean on if you need it.
- If you have space, separate the food from the beverage station so that your guests are not meeting each other. This will help prevent awkward and embarrassing moments.
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 have an outdoor party if time permits. Make vases with plant decorations (herbs or flowers) and send them home with the guests.
- Muffin Tin Brunch: All menu items can be made into muffin form or served in muffin tins.
- Pajama Brunch Party: Have everyone wear their cutest pajamas and plush slippers. Serve traditional breakfast foods such as bacon, eggs, and toast or cookies.
- Coffee and Donut Bar: Serves a variety of coffees and donuts. Make sure you have some nutritious options too, 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, eclairs, and guacamole with fries.
Have a Good Time
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 offering this party to someone who is getting married or having a baby, they will appreciate your positive attitude and joyful spirit.
