Throw A Brunch

Whether it’s a Sunday morning and you want to have some people over to talk, or you need to throw a party for a coworker’s promotion, a great way to do it is by holding a brunch. The task of throwing a brunch can seem daunting, but it’s no more difficult than throwing any other type of party, you just need to know what you are doing.

First, you must choose a theme. Of course, it’s going to be breakfast food, but try to be more specific. Is it going to be a quick do-it-yourself brunch with mostly donuts and bagels or hard rolls? Or is it going to be eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast with people to serve. How fancy your brunch is will have a big impact on price and amount of work. For example, if you had a party with eggs, bacon, and sausage and you are having a huge amount of people come, it will be much more expensive than if you had donuts and rolls. Remember that some foods are much more expensive then others, so pick according to how many people will be there. This needs to be decided ahead of time.

Next, you need to decide on the menu. If you are doing a quick do-it-yourself brunch, you need to agree on decide what you will serve. If you are going to serve donuts, where will you get them? Are you going to need to also get juice, butter, etc.? If it’s more fancy, you will need to decide exactly what you are going to have: eggs (what types), bacon, sausage, potatoes, toast, crepes, etc. Are you going to make it a pancake brunch? Make a choice if you will offer many varieties of pancakes or many varieties of toppings. Be creative. If you give several choices, it can be more fun and exciting for your friends.

Decide on how much food you will have to serve. Make sure you know how many people will be attending. If it’s at work, it shouldn’t be too hard because most people do go to work on a regular basis, but if it’s your own party, try to get people to R.S.V.P. Get the right amount of food so that you don’t waste food and money. If you are going to have eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, potatoes, and donuts, don’t expect that everyone is going to have the same amount of each. Still, make sure you have enough. Getting too much and having left-overs is better than running out and leaving half of your guests hungry.

Finally, tie up the pieces. Are you going to have any decorations? You might buy elegant tablecloths, napkins, and fancy plates. Or you might be okay with basic supplies but use lots of colors. There are tons varieities of things you can do with a brunch as far as decorations. Set a day, and ask people for help if there are going to be a lot of guests. it’s for a large crowd. If you are asking others to bring food, make sure they are actually going to bring in what they offered and that they are bringing enough. Most importantly, don’t stress too much, just have fun.
