Who can resist the charm of brunch? Whether it's the allure of endless mimosas or the opportunity to cherish moments with family and friends, there's a compelling reason why it's a beloved meal for all. Make your weekend unforgettable by hosting a brunch gathering with your loved ones!
Entertaining guests outdoors is always fun! An outdoor kitchen is the perfect place to prep and cook food while spending quality time with your friends and family. No matter where you live, an outdoor kitchen lets you take advantage of the great outdoors and enjoy any meal outside! An outdoor brunch calls for a light, fresh array to set the tone. A well-designed charcuterie board can be beautiful, delicious and the perfect addition to any brunch spread. You can prepare a wide variety of foods but make sure to give your guests the option to customize their plates. Setting up several stations is a great way to make your brunch more interactive and fun! A pancake bar, parfait bar and waffle bar are all great options! For dessert, pick up an assortment of yummy breakfast pastries from your local bakery or consider making them yourself with ingredients from your own garden!
Is it even brunch if someone’s not drinking a mimosa? Without delectable drinks, it's really just breakfast. Make brunch a little more special with freshly squeezed orange juice mimosas! Help your guests unwind by offering them a selection of alcoholic beverages. Bellinis, Bloody Mary’s, and sangria are the perfect pairings for your brunch foods. You can also serve a selection of juices to pair with some bubbly: Pineapple juice, mango juice, and peach juice are all great choices and allow your guests to make their own flavors!
