Throwing a brunch can be intimidating. But, with summer shindigs and outdoor soirées on my mind, it’s high time for a(n easy!) glamorous summer brunch, don’t you think?
Plan ahead to avoid unexpected mishaps. Be sure to test recipes before the big day. To make things even easier, find or create recipes that can be made in advance.
If you want to incorporate fresh flowers into your tablescape, don’t spend a fortune on pre-made bouquets. Do it yourself! Grab some empty jars and small glass bottles, add a flower or two to each, scatter them around your table, and voilà, a fresh flower tablescape!
Don’t go overboard. You don’t need custom cupcakes, a homemade 5-tier cake, and an expansive bar menu. Instead, find one menu item, cocktail, or decoration that will really wow your guests. If you’re inviting friends who don't really know each other, try a DIY backdrop. Help break the ice by creating your own photo booth and letting your guests mix and mingle with an instax camera in hand.
Now that you’re equipped and ready to throw a totally glamorous summer brunch, what will be your ‘wow’ factor?
