Simple Brunch Ideas

I love having friends and family over whenever we can all find the time. Everyone is just so busy these days. I like to have a stress~free way to entertain friends. While reading At Home with Madame Chic the author Jennifer L. Scott gave ways to create a simple brunch that can appear to be bountiful. Here are some ideas:

*  A bowl full of enticing bagels (lay a cloth in the bowl before adding the bagels and allow the edges of the cloth to hang over the side of the bowl). 

*  A pretty platter with artfully arranged sliced tomatoes, capers, sliced red onions, and lox.

*  A little dish with cream cheese and a unique serving knife.

*  A bowl of fruit salad

*  A savory breakfast casserole

*  Croissants or pain au chocolat

*  Quiche (caramelized onion, spinach, broccoli or whatever your favorite is)

*  Assorted salads

*  Sparkling water

*  Juice

*  A signature brunch cocktail like mango mimosas (sparkling wine with a splash of mango juice)

*  Assortment of teas & coffee

Set a pretty tablescape

Make sure your recipes are simple & delicious

  1. Oh yes, this is my idea of entertaining friends and family for brunch. I love setting the table with beautiful dishes and stemware and having a good time laughing and talking. In my opinion Jennifer L. Scott looks a lot like actress Gennifer Goodwin.

    1. Lol, she does favor her! I love get together's. I told my husband that we have to do it often. Thank you again Ms. Shery for reading!
