There's no better way to start the day than surrounded by your favorite people, eating delicious breakfast food, and sipping on a Mimosa (or two). Most brunch foods are quick and easy to make, so be creative and keep it simple!
Open air dining is a fun way to spend time with your family and friends, so take brunch outside this year! Utilize your Cambridge outdoor kitchen and bar to cook up something delicious for everyone to enjoy. An outdoor kitchen will allow you to have a stress-free brunch and will make clean-up a breeze!
It's not brunch without some Mimosas! Stock up your outdoor bar with a selection of juices to pair with some bubbly champagne! Pineapple, peach, mango, and grapefruit juice are all fantastic choices to spice up your mimosa and add a unique flavor. If you don't like mimosas, Bellinis or Bloody Marys are great alternatives. Make sure to have enough refreshing drinks for everyone to enjoy throughout the hot summer day!
Keep it cool by setting up seating and refreshments under a pavilion! A pavilion will shield you from the sun and give the illusion of an outdoor "room". Keep your guests entertained all day long with an outdoor TV and some upbeat music. Bring out some blankets and turn on your Cambridge fireplace to create a cozy "laid back vibe" everyone will love!
