You’ve heard the term “Sunday funday” right? It’s a great day to gather your friends and host a fabulous brunch. Mimosas, pastries, and pies — it’s all about having a good time. We’re here to help make your brunch bash easy and enjoyable.

 

Delightful Drinks

The key is to keep it light, which is why bubbly beverages are a wonderful choice. Most brunch items are a mix of sweet and savory, so the bright flavors and fruity bubbles in sparkling wine or champagne complement a variety of dishes. If you prefer non-alcoholic beverages, sparkling fruit juices are another great option. Coffee and tea are essentials , so pick up a few varieties to cover your guests’ preferences.

For champagne and sparkling wine options, give these bubblies a try:

  • Candoni Prosecco Brut: Crisp and clean; sip this slowly and savor the distinct honey undertones.
  • Moscato d’Asti:  Lightly fizzy Moscato d’Asti has a touch of sweetness balanced by crisp acidity to bring out tangy and sweet flavors.
  • Champagne: The acidity of the champagne helps lighten the rich flavors from typical brunch foods such as cheese omelets, and the light fruit flavors will complement any added fresh herbs, such as basil or thyme.

 

Stress-Free Food

Setting up a cheese board is always a fun addition to your get-together. For easy ideas on how to set one up, see our blog on how to create cheese plate perfection. If you’re looking to get a little more creative, try setting up stations like a waffle bar with different toppings, or a bagel bonanza with assorted cream cheeses, butters, and bagel flavors.

Omelets, frittatas, and salads are easy choices that will be both delicious and fast to make. For brunch recipe options that aren’t too heavy, give these a try:

  • Citrus Pasta Salad
    The slight sweetness and sparkle of cava makes it an agreeable match for nearly any dish. Our Citrus Pasta Salad has a wide range of flavors, from salty feta to basil to orange and grapefruit. The versatility of cava will stand up to every bite.
  • Salmon Brunch Frittata
    Smoked salmon, eggs, and sliced potatoes make this a hearty and satisfying dish. Sautéed onions and tarragon add an additional layer of flavor. The versatility of this dish lends itself to an equally versatile drink such as champagne. Don’t worry, orange juice or coffee are suitable options, too.

If you prefer to have us do the work for you, try ordering a platter from the Publix bakery or deli.

 

Décor

From fun and flirty to sassy and sophisticated, let your theme guide your decoration choices. Stop by our Floral department for a colorful bouquet to add freshness to your table. Use sparkly leftover wrapping paper as a table runner to add a little glam to the event.

If you have a backyard, your garden would be a quaint setting for brunch. Pinterest has a lot of great ideas to give you more inspiration. Last but not least, don’t forget the music! Think of your guests, and keep the music low enough to still have conversation.

We hope we’ve given you a jumpstart on throwing a fabulous brunch bash. We’d love to see pictures of your event. Share with us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.
