Who doesn’t love brunch? Between the luxury of sleeping in while still enjoying breakfast foods and the variety of delicious brunch cocktails, there’s nothing not to love about this classic weekend meal. Brunch is also the perfect setting for a variety of celebrations, whether you’re hosting a group of bridesmaids to toast the bride-to-be or are welcoming a new member of your family with a baby shower.
That being said, hosting a party can be stressful, and hosting a party in the morning comes with unique considerations. If you want to fully enjoy the festivities, make sure to take steps to reduce your stress with these handy tips.
Food is Everything
Brunch is about one thing: food. Regardless of what you’re celebrating, your menu is the most important part of any brunch party. The most important thing is to make sure you have a mix of savory and sweet options. This doesn’t mean you need to wake up at 3 a.m. to make everything; there are many dishes you can prepare the night before, such as egg bakes.
Of course, you can save yourself even more stress and ensure that you have the tastiest menu possible by hiring us to cater your party in Livonia. We offer an extensive breakfast menu with many options, from hash brown casserole to homemade French toast to scrambled eggs and bacon to a Belgian waffle bar.

Cocktails are Key
Of course, it’s not brunch without cocktails (or mocktails). You can make this a fun activity as well by setting up a Make-Your-Own-Mimosa bar. Offer several types of juices, such as orange, pineapple, and pomegranate, as well as a selection of fruit for garnish (strawberries, blueberries, pineapple wedges, etc.). Of course, don’t forget the champagne! If children will also be in attendance, a sparkling apple cider or seltzer water lets them make a little mocktail for themselves as well.
Brighten Up Your Decor
For a brunch, the decor should be focused on bringing a warm and welcoming vibe to the festivities. You can brighten up your table with some cute, colorful mason jars filled with baby’s breath. You might also add some color and fun by creating displays of beautiful vegetables, such as eggplant, radishes, tomatoes, and artichokes. This makes for a charming, easy, and cost-effective table display.
Set Up the Night Before
The most stressful part of hosting a brunch party is the fact that it is first thing in the morning. This can mean scrambling around if you don’t give yourself adequate time to get ready. Anything you can set up the night before, do so. This way, you don’t have to wake up in the wee hours to make sure your party goes off without a hitch.
We hope that these tips help you relax and enjoy your party. Regardless of the occasion, we offer an extensive brunch menu through our catering company in Livonia, and would be happy to make your brunch party extra special. Contact us today for catering in Livonia.
