Hosting a brunch party is a wonderful way to visit with friends and family. Follow these four tips to make it an easier experience.
A brunch party will have an earlier start time than many other types of parties. To make your morning run smoothly (and on time), get some help with the food. Whatever you can do to eliminate cooking in the morning is highly recommended. For example, you can make use of an online bakery Schaumburg IL and pick up fresh pastries in advance; visit a local supermarket for platters of cheese and fruit; make an egg casserole the night before.
Create a “Help Yourself” Drink Bar
Enjoying brunch with a mimosa or Bloody Mary is a very popular culinary tradition. Instead of playing bartender for everyone, create a drink bar for party guests to help themselves. You can lay out all the fixings for alcoholic beverages and pour juice or other non-alcoholic drinks into carafes in a designated area of your kitchen or dining room. If you think the guests will need some assistance, write out the recipes on cardstock to display.
Use Disposable Serving Ware
Although your nice china serving ware is beautifully made and beautiful to look at, you will have significantly less clean up if you use disposable plates, cups, and silverware at your brunch party. Nowadays, there are several options at party stores that are made of better quality materials and come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can still create a pretty table or buffet.
You may be tempted to hang or display decorations but skip them to save you set up and take downtime. If you want to add some nice touches, there may be nothing nicer than fresh flowers artfully displayed around your home. Keep it simple and tasteful.
Host a lovely brunch party for all invited and yourself.
