I love brunch. I think the reason why I love Brunch so much is because it's my favorite meal of the day (breakfast), but served/consumed at a reasonable hour of the day (mid-late morning….not 6am). Brunch is also a great meal to consider hosting at home for the following reasons:
- It tends to be the least expensive to purchase and prepare
- Most brunch food can be made ahead and/or baked leaving you with minimal kitchen time during the actual party
- The foods/dishes associated with brunch are perfect for serving buffet style
One brunch party idea I love and have used many times over, is the blue and white themed brunch. Blue and white as a color scheme can translate across many different seasons and it works perfectly for me because my everyday dishes are white and my collection of blue table linens tends to be the most abundant. I say this to you all simply because white everyday dishes tend to be what many people have since the color is so neutral and food looks so appetizing on a white plate. In addition, white plates pair well with so many different colored table linens, so even if your blue table linens aren't in abundance to match this post, you may have a large collection of green, red, brown, grey or even white linens that would also pair perfectly with white plates for your own brunch party.
Here is a breakdown of my table decor and where you can get most of the items as well as additional suggestions for achieving this "Brunch-scape."
