Brunch doesn’t always mean you and your girlfriends need to get dressed up and head to the fancy breakfast place in your town. You can alternate hosting brunch parties with your girlfriends, saving you time, money, and effort. Another fantastic benefit of brunching at a friend’s house is that you can show up in pajamas, no makeup, and a ponytail. Because at the end of the day, brunch is all about eating well, laughing with your loved ones, and relaxing. Continue reading to learn a few tips from Splash Tears on throwing an unforgettable brunch party.
Check Allergies and Diets
We all have different eating styles. Some may like eggs, some may be vegan, some may want mimosas, and some may not. Check with your girlfriends before your brunch party and decide on a few meals that suit everyone’s diet and palate. These days, finding vegan options is relatively easy. Look for inspiration online or in magazines. Choose fresh ingredients like fruits and freshly baked pastries. We recommend Pinterest for food inspiration. Once you have decided what you will be serving, move on to meal-prepping, our next step.
Prepare Ahead and Have Variety
Again, based on your guests’ diets, you will need various items. We recommend the basics such as eggs, potatoes, coffee or lattes, teas, water, sauces, French toast, waffles or pancakes, and fresh fruits. You can peel and chop the fruits the night before, lay out the dry ingredients, and measure them, so you only have to mix them in the morning. Ensure you buy or have delivered all your groceries at least two nights before, so you don’t have to go to the store in the morning, giving yourself unnecessary stress. Steam from cooking and ingredients such as onions can hurt, dry, and irritate your eyes, apply one or two drops of Splash Tears before cooking for clear, hydrated, soothed eyes throughout your brunch party.
Choose the vibe
Choose a style for your brunch party. Will it be lounge-style, cushions, rugs, low tables, beautiful silverware, and generally low maintenance, or will you want to go for something more extravagant; a long dinner table, fancy table clothes, glass champagne flutes, real dishware, and rolled napkins? Whichever style you choose, ensure you get all the items in time and enough for your girlfriends. Also, just because you are the host this time doesn’t mean you need to do everything alone. You can request help from your closest friend and together you can set up the living room, patio, or dining room for the brunch party.
Mocktails or Cocktails
Another detail to consider is if you want to serve cocktails or mocktails at your brunch party. Serving alcohol can increase the cost of your party, so you can always set up a bar with mocktails or sparkling water. Another good option is to ask your girlfriends to bring their desired drink of choice. Mimosas are always a low-cost brunch drink. You can purchase a bottle of sparkling wine for $5.00 at your local supermarket and mix it with orange juice, place a strawberry on the rim, and you are good to go. If you drink, alcohol can make your dry eye symptoms worse, have Splash Tears around to hydrate your eyes and continue enjoying your brunch party.
Set up a Self-Serve Line
Now that you have your space decorated, food is cooked, and a self-serve bar is set up, all you have to do is light up a few chafing dishes and lay out the breakfast bar for your girlfriends to enjoy the delicious food you have prepared. Ensure the dishware you chose is at the beginning of the food line with washable napkins and silverware for all to use. Having everything organized and ready to go will deliver a great brunch experience for your guests, and everyone will be happy. Play your favorite music or television show in the background, and finally sit back to enjoy all you’ve created.
