How to throw the ultimate brunch (+printables!)

If you know me, you know I love a good brunch, and not just because I heart any excuse to eat a biscuit. Well, maybe…

Brunch can be a great option for entertaining if you love to play host but are sick of staying up late with chatty dinner guests who just won’t leave, or you are a rose-all-day kinda gal. Even better, brunch parties tend to be low cost and low maintenance. If I’ve caught your attention, read on for some fabulous hosting tips, and check out some free brunch printables to get the party decor started. 

Like all great parties that revolve around food, your brunch begins with your meal selection. Get creative with breakfast bites that are both affordable and fun, such as a make-your-own biscuit bar (with this delicious biscuits and gravy recipe) or an omelette station. 

If you want to elevate your brunch party, consider serving yogurt parfaits in martini glasses or a gourmet donut display with dough, glaze, fruit, and edible flowers. You can also elevate the event by breaking out the fancy plates and flaunting your tablescape skills. I’m here for it!

There are plenty of activities for your brunch party guests, such as a make-your-own bloody Mary station or DIY mimosa bar. You can even serve a sparkling citrus mocktail for children or guests who don’t drink, or set up a coffee brewing station for guests who need a morning dose of caffeine. 

The right music can also help you set the vibe! Play some daytime tunes and even let guests request their favorite song with these printable song cards. Might I suggest Lionel Ritchie’s “Easy Like Sunday Morning” or Jack Johnson’s “Banana Pancakes” to get your playlist started? 

Now that you’re all set to host the ultimate brunch, it’s time to gather up your closest friends and throw one heckuva daytime celebration! Don’t forget to send out your invitations
