A Sunday brunch is one of the most popular ways of having a family or friends get together. Many people do pot luck brunches or take turns in hosting a brunch or even going out to have a brunch. However if it is your turn to throw a Sunday brunch, these tips will help you make it a success.
When it comes to hosting a brunch your guest list is important. You need to get a head count on everybody who is going to come. Also it is important to know their preferences. Mainly if it is family and friends you probably know what they like. But if it is a brunch for your business partners or potential clients you need to get an idea of what they would like to have. This will make it easier for you to order food from a buffet catering or even if you cook by yourself. If your guests are from a different culture you need to make sure the type of food they are familiar with having. Not everybody thinks eggs benedict is nice to have.
The food arranger
Food is a crucial point in a brunch. People actually come to eat. So you need to get your menu straight. If you are hiring buffet catering make sure that the food items match each other. For example you can’t put dinner items in a brunch menu. It will confuse the guests and will not really enjoy. You need to have food items that go with each other. For example bacon, eggs, toast, cinnamon rolls etc. But if you put pasta and lasagna in to the mix it will not be that pleasant. Because it is not really brunch material. The menu plays a big role in making a brunch a success. A successful brunch is where people are enjoying the food and having a good time. So you need to understand the type of food they like and put them there. Avoid ordering only your favorites.
Having options is important. If it is a brunch there should be beverages. So have several options. If you must stick to a budget or have to cut something back, don’t do that on food. You need to get both tea and coffee. May be majority won’t consume coffee, but for those who do it will be a treat. Also when ordering food, consider that there will be vegans too so get milk and soy milk both. Also have oatmeal or cereals ready too for those who are on a diet or simply like to have those for a brunch.
