Parties are great ways to have a good time with close friends and family. You may have hosted many dinner parties, but have you considered a brunch party? Brunch parties allow you and your guests to mix up your party routines while creating memorable moments. Likewise, you can get comfortable in cozy clothing options without worrying about being judged for your outfit. Moreover, brunch party menus are flexible, as you can include various meals and drinks that would cater to your guests. If you’re new to hosting brunch parties, here are a few tips to make the experience stress-free. 

1. Choose an appropriate day 

The best thing about brunch parties is that you can host them any day. However, you still have to consider your guests before setting your date to ensure that everyone is comfortable. For instance, weekdays may not work if they have 9-5 jobs weekly, making Saturdays or Sundays more appropriate. If your guests work with different schedules, you can choose a date that most of them would be available. Regarding the time, brunch is traditionally served between breakfast and lunch, like 10.00 am. However, you can start earlier to allow your guest to interact with each other before eating. 

While there are no rules on inviting your guests, you can send a written invitation, text or email. Requesting an RSVP can help you know how many people to expect, so keep this in mind. As a tip, invite them some weeks before the event to give them adequate time to fix it in their schedule. You can also call if you don’t hear from them before purchasing the needed items for the event to be sure if they can make it or not. 

2. Prepare adequately 

Now, you want your party to have a relaxed ambiance, and setting up beforehand can help you achieve this. You can set your tables the night before since your party will begin in the morning. This way, you can avoid undue pressure and stress and get everything you need before your guests arrive. As a tip, create a list of items you need for the party and purchase or rent any stuff you don’t have. Consequently, prepare your bathroom by placing enough hand towels and soap. You can also consider playing your favourite relaxed tunes in the background, so keep this in mind. 

3. Set the menu 

Fortunately, brunch menus are flexible, as you can serve both breakfast and lunch meals. You can consider meals you can make ahead of time, so you don’t have to cook and serve your guests simultaneously. Quiches, frittatas, make-ahead breakfast casseroles, salads, sandwiches, etc., are great brunch meals, so you can include them in your menu. This IHOP pancake recipe from Butter Your Biscuit will also be a favourite among your guests, so feel free to consider this. It’s prudent to consider your guests’ dietary needs and plan accordingly. Regarding drinks, you can opt for tea, coffee, fruit juices, mimosas, greyhounds, etc. 

A brunch party can be an exciting experience, and you can heighten the fun by creating themed parties. Pyjama brunch party and garden party are ideas worth considering.
