5 fabulous ideas for a Fabulous Brunch

5 fabulous ideas for a Fabulous Brunch

Most of us enjoy a good English breakfast but why not throw a classy event brunch? It doesn’t have to be a special occasion – maybe just a Saturday! So lets take the time to enjoy your favourite brunch treats in the company of your friends or clients with the following ideas that will keep it simple. When it’s all over, you’ll still have the rest of the day ahead of you.

1. Plan make-ahead recipes. Unlike a typical party, brunches often take place just a few hours after you get up. That leaves you with less time to prepare than you are normally used to. Save yourself stress by finding dishes that you can make the night before. Some ideas include quiche, breakfast casserole, and fruit salad.

2. Measure the ingredients. Of course, not everything you want to make is able to be prepared ahead of time. For some dishes, you’ll want to make them just as your guests are arriving, so they’re warm, fresh, and yummy. You can even make them on the spot for people. Customize pancakes or waffles with different fresh fruits or cinnamon. For scrambled eggs or omelets, you can offer different items to mix in, like bacon, ham, spinach, and various cheeses.

3. Set the table ahead of time. That way, you can take your time and really set the scene. Consider using warm colours to help keep things bright and wake people up! A fresh bouquet of sunflowers or daffodils makes a wonderful, simple centerpiece.

4. Turn on your bread machine the night before. There’s nothing nicer than waking up to the smell of baking bread, and your guests will be salivating the moment they get in the door. Simple breads like whole wheat are delicious and go well with egg dishes, but you can also try something sweet, like cinnamon bread.

5. Make mimosas. Trust me, they’ll be a huge hit, and they’re so easy to make: half orange juice and half champagne. You can garnish them with a cherry or a slice of strawberry. Want to take it up a notch? Make fresh-squeezed OJ or try a different kind of juice, such as passion fruit. For a non-alcoholic version, add a natural carbonated beverage instead of champagne.

Happy last day of summer!!! It’s official. Today is the last day of freedom (at least that’s the way it used to be, right?). I thought we’d kick off the last day of this amazing season with a gorgeous shoot styled, coordinated and designed by Natalie of A GOOD AFFAIR WEDDING & EVENT PRODUCTION with photography by MARILYN NAKAZATO PHOTOGRAPHY. I found this on the net…so if you want to find them too just click the link or do some googling of your own.

As you’ll see, the images are of a brunch event, meant for either a rehearsal or a shower.

 

This is the point at which I’d like to interject: what do you think of co-ed showers? I too LOVED the idea. Bryan and I have a great group of couple friends, and I’ve always thought it would be a blast to include the men in the fun (not that they all are looking for a chance to have to dress up in a suit…I use every excuse so I hope they would too).

Here are some amazing images, with the very talented vendor credits below!
