It’s been a busy week. You’ve been working hard, staying late, and now it’s time to reward yourself with brunch with your girlfriends. You offered to host--now you’ve got to get a beautiful brunch together. Luckily, it couldn’t be simpler! Here’s our guide to brunching with your babes.
First thing’s first: the menu. Make your life easier (and no less tasty!) by mixing pre-packaged foods with fresh, homemade recipes. Go to the store for fresh fruit salad, orange juice, and breakfast breads or pastries. Then, come home and prepare a simple and delicious breakfast casserole (this is a perfect recipe for a first-time hostess) and a sinfully sweet orange pecan French toast.
Of course, brunch just isn’t brunch without some drinks. You can’t go wrong with the classic mimosa or bloody Mary, but impress your ladies by adding something new to your brunch table as well. Try making a tipsy sweet tea for your gals--this recipe couldn’t be simpler.
A little music will keep the mood just right, but who wants to fuss with making a playlist? Pick a pre-made Spotify playlist and let it play all brunch long. Keep things light and easy with Afternoon Acoustic or The Most Beautiful Songs In The World on Spotify.
Finally, keep the table fun and feminine with table accessories that your friends will immediately envy. Cute salt and pepper shakers? Chic placemats? Lovely dish towels? Check, check, and check. Accessorize your table just like your accessorize your outfit, and your brunch will benefit.
