What else could be better to start your day by having your favorite peeps around you, with a delicious breakfast and refreshing decor that sets the mood? However, hosting a brunch party can also be a stressful job. You might need to wake up before dawn.
Where brunch is a great way to start your day, you might be afraid to be down to the sacrifices for it. But, there are ways you can have a fantastic brunch party without even waking up before dawn.
Here's a complete guide and tips for hosting a fantastic brunch that'll help you have one while being at ease.
Decide the Best Time for Brunch
Plan your brunch party on a day when all of your guests are available to join you. For example, if your guest list includes people working in the office from 9 to 5, consider having your brunch party on Saturday or Sunday.
If it's not the case, you can plan it on any day of the week when your guests are available. Also, the time of the brunch part is essential as you must carry out the arrangements accordingly.
Mostly, brunch is served around 10 am between breakfast and lunchtime. However, you can decide the time of the brunch according to your convenience. Make sure you don't set the party time too early, as you'll have to wake up before dawn.
Sent Out the Invitations
The first thing you may want to do is to prepare a guest list of the people you want to invite to the brunch party. Creating a list guestlist is the first step, while sending out the invitations is the second.
Once you have successfully created the guest list, consider sending out the invitations 2 or 3 weeks ago so people have enough time to decide and you can manage accordingly. You send out the invitations via electronic channels or a courier service.
However, make sure you'll get a response to the invitations you send, so you don't have to buy more ingredients for the food spontaneously. In this regard, electronic invitations work best.
Consider Buffet Style
When it comes to hosting a long list of people, it's never easy. But, especially when it's the brunch party, you want yourself to relax too.
Buffet style is a perfect dining style for a brunch that'll keep you at ease. Instead of jumping over and taking short trips to the kitchen, the guest would help themselves, and you can enjoy the conversion.
Moreover, if you have any item in less quantity with a buffet style, you can strategically make it last the entire brunch party by placing it at the end of the table. Mostly the guests have their plates full as they reach the end of the table.
No need to rent the serving ware for the buffet. Just have plenty of bowls to serve the dishes. Get disposable bowls as they offer hassle-free clean-up. With disposable plastic bowls, you won't have to wash or clean a lot of serving ware but can quickly dispose of them at the end of the party.
