4 Ingredients To Host The Best Brunch Party

In a world where almost combination of words get turned into a hybrid (Brangelina, hangry, floordrobe, glamping and regretro), the greatest of them all is still Brunch. Not because it is a particularly clever play on words but because it is one of the greatest inventions ever. A ways to celebrate a Sunday, to get over a hangover, kick start a lazy day in the best way possible and just have an excuse to see your friends outside the usual Friday or Saturday night.

What’s more, Brunch is also one of the best meals to host too. There is more flexibility, fewer rules and, a lot of the time, they won’t drag on longer than needed because you and your guests will probably have other plans for later on.

With that in mind, here are some of our top tips to make your brunch party the best brunch party of all time:

Cook. Prepare. In Advance.

Trying to entertain your guests and deal with the delicate procedures involved in cooking a brunch tends to spell out disaster. That is why you need to keep your kitchen running smoothly and stick to the rule of only choosing one dish to cook on the day (such as scrambled eggs or hash browns), one dish to prepare the day before (such as a wicked tasty salad or sandwiches) and one that can be done in advance (cakes and bread). Stick to this and you’ll breeze through this whole thing.

Know Your Breakfast Meats.

This is your chance to play around with some of the fan favourites, such as bacon and sausages, as well as bring out the kind of meats you would get in a hotel’s continental breakfast, such as salami and cured meats. As a little tip, cook your bacon and sausages in the oven because the less you use your hobs the easier it will be to entertain.

Booze Is Acceptable.

The thing that makes Brunch so awesome is the fact you can get away with having certain boozy drinks for what is essentially breakfast. The winner is always a good Bloody mary, so long as you have the right Bloody Mary seasoning. However, if you want to put on a selection, then we recommend you make some Mimosas and Bellinis too. You could even go with an Irish Coffee. Of course, this can get a little expensive, so have your guests bring some ingredients with them. That way they can also help make the drinks while you do the food.

Little Extras To Include.

There are certain little extras that everyone will love but not everyone will expect and that is exactly how you can make your Brunch party an absolute hit. We’re talking about a selection of pancakes that will invoke nostalgia. We’re talking about French Toast and some vibrant fruits to stop your servings from being so monochromatic. Donuts and fresh bread are also winners because every person loves tasty carbs, especially if there is booze that could need some soaking up.

Yup, your next Brunch party is going to see you become known as the hostess with the mostess. We promise.

When you’ve got a special occasion coming up, you can start to get super excited about all of the plans. Whether it’s a big birthday, anniversary, or milestone celebration, a party should always be in order. But, this can’t be any old party – oh no. It has to be a hit! So, you’re going to want to make sure that your party stands out. To do that, you should focus on a few elegant touches that can take your celebratory occasion from cool and casual to classic and chic in no time at all. And to do that, here’s what you need to set everything off in style.

 

Hire A Planner

 

Sometimes, it’s nice to plan a party yourself. But, you have to admit, it can be a completely stressful occasion. So, you might want to think about hiring an event planner. If you’re busy with work, it can be a lifesaver. Then, you don’t have to worry about decorations or music choices, because your planner can handle it all. And if you’re hoping for a theme that wows, your expert will have you covered.

 

Hire A Stunning Location

 

This is definitely something that your party planner will cover off for you, but you’re going to need to approve everything. They’re going to give you options, but you still have to make a killer choice. If you want to wow with your special occasion, you’re going to need the stunning location to do it from. Whether that’s a classic castle style hotel, or a sweet little barn in the middle of nowhere, just make sure it has an air of elegance, and you’re good to go.

 

Go All Out With Refreshments

 

As everything starts to come together, you’re going to want to make sure that some of the most notable parts are on point. And we all know what means we have to cover off the refreshments first. You might want to think about creating your own cocktail menu, but that’s not all. With a custom drinks design like Wine Design produces, you can personalize your wine bottles to really add an elegant touch. Then, your planner should be able to pull out all out all of the stops with a caterer too, meaning your food will be a sure fire hit all night long.

 

Get Creative With Gift Bags

 

If you want your guests to be super impressed, why not think about handing out gift bags and party favors too? With cute options to choose from that suit your elegant theme and venue, you’ll be making sure that your memorable occasion lives on forever, in your mind and in your guests’.

 

Pamper Yourself Pretty

 

Finally, you may want to think about your pre-party pampering prep on the run up to your special occasion. Every girl wants to look ultra glam when it’s their day, so you may want to work on your glowing skin, shiny hair, and even bright eyes too. Pamper away, get your nails done, and book a hair stylist for the day of the party. Then, you’ll feel just as elegant as your special occasion is going to be.

 

 

Easy Halloween Munch

Halloween really kicks off our end of year Holiday season, and it is one of my favorite events to decorate and create fun treats for. 

This recipe can be called “Easy Halloween Munch” or “Ghost Poop”, really we all think the second name is funny. It is easy to make and only takes four ingredients! 

  
I’m planning on making a few batches, thus why I bought the big box of cereal. 

Ingredients:

2 cups Corn Chex

1 cup Dry Roasted, Unsalted Peanuts

1 cup Candy Corn

1/2 bag White Candy Melts
Directions:

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl, set aside.

  
  
In glass/ceramic, microwave safe bowl, melt white candy melts, until smooth. I put them in for one minute, then stir; then another minute checking at 30 seconds. If they are ready at the 30 second mark move on to next step. If not, put back in for the last 30 seconds.

Once the melts are at a smooth consistency, pour over dry ingredients, scraping the bowl to ensure you get it all. 

Mix until all dry ingredients are coated. 

  
Once fully coated, pour mixture onto a sheet of wax paper to let cool. Mixture will harden as it cools, this is good. 

  
Once full cooled, place into plastic container, large ziploc bag, or package up to give as a gift! 

  
This is a great gift for teachers, neighbors, and friends! This also goes over great at parties. 

To make a larger batch, simply double the recipe.

Happy Haunting!
