I’m gonna show you a fun way to celebrate your girls by hosting your very own mini brunch at home. You don’t want to over think this. It’s just one step up from inviting your favorites over for some good food and company. Let’s get into this mini brunch set up, shall we?
How To Put Together A Mini Brunch Buffet Table
In 5 Easy Steps
Develop a theme (message/colors/style)
Since your brunch is going to be centered around your girls, you need to think of a great way to celebrate them as a whole. What are their common characteristics? For my brunch pictured, I opted for a black girl magic theme. So I wanted to make sure to include some dope imagery as well as positive affirmations in my set up.
Some ideas might include:
- Rosè all day
- Paris in Spring
- March Madness
- Women’s empowerment
- City Chic
Create a menu
If menu planning isn’t your thing. Let’s keep it simple. Think about dishes that are easy to make and common to brunch menus. Things like waffles, biscuits, eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits, dips and simple drinks like mimosas and beer are really easy to whip up. Here’s the perfect drink recipe for those warm months.
Or you could try my hot beer cheese recipe I featured last week. It’s pretty simple to make and can be done a multi-cooker.
Gather decor items & tableware
Some of my favorite places to pick up fun decor items are my local dollar stores, Target’s dollar spot and home decor stores. Clearance bins are also great places to score some inexpensive gems. The photos & flower props that you see in my pics all came from Dollar Tree. The dishes were a combination of stuff found at the Target dollar spot and Dollar Tree.
Set up brunch table with decor
Before you set out any food, you should prep your buffet space. Make sure your table is large enough to hold everything you’ll need or opt for multiple tables/spaces. Figure out where you want your larger pieces to go first. This includes your flower arrangements and big platters. Next, fill in the empty spaces with your accent decor and dishes/utensils. You want your food items to be grouped in ways that make sense to how people build their plates. So group drinks/glasses together. Utensils and plates should be closest to where people would start.
Prepare & set up food & drinks
If you are going to be serving hot foods, make sure you have a way to keep things warm. In my case, I served a hot dip, so I kept it warm in a multi-cooker until it was time to eat.
Hope this post gave you lots of inspiration for planning your next at home brunch for your girls. We never need an excuse to celebrate the people we vibe with. Just plan it and they will come. Until next time, happy brunching ya’ll.
