Best Tips to Successfully hosting a Brunch
- Choose a mix of sweet & savory bagels, croissants, and muffins.
- Select muffin recipes that can be prepared the night before.
- Grocery shop with an organized list! Divide your list by section– produce, meat/dairy, aisles, & freezer and then add ingredients to the list, recipe by recipe, so you’re sure that everything is listed.
- Opt for bakery-made bagels and croissants. They’re perfect for large groups, plus you don’t have to cook!
- Use beautiful small salad plates, the perfect size for breakfast bites.
- Arrange the spread with what you have the most of (fruits) to what you have the least of (bread & muffins). That way, your guests will fill up their plate with your most bountiful dish, leaving just a bit of room for what you might be scant in.
- Drink selection should include 1) water, 2) coffee, 3) some sort of brunch libation. We chose to go with mimosas with three types of juice– peach, orange & grapefruit– and our bubbly sponsor was Zonin Prosecco, a very well-balanced wine, with the extremely delicate almond note that is typical of Prosecco.
