When you think about it brunch is the most harmonious meal, balancing sweet and savory and breakfast and lunch perfectly. Brunches can be casual and inexpensive or formal and fussed-over, making them ideal for party planners on all budgets. With Easter and Mother's Day on the horizon an afternoon brunch is a lovely way to celebrate spring's holidays, especially if you're looking to sleep in! Check out the latest brunch bunch and may your weekend be syrupy sweet!
Muffins, the cupcakes of the breakfast hour, are a great way to start the morning and an even better way to keep a brunch party table picture perfect. These orange marmelade muffins by Thoughtfully Simple combine the nostalgic feeling of spring and the season's playfulness into one little treat. Check out the entire party here to swoon in the afternoon.
A good brunch is all about options and this seaside soiree found on the Bride Suite is full of them. A smörgåsbord of mini muffins and a build-your-own parfait buffet offers something for all brunchers, while upholding the meal's lightness and simplicity.
Unfortunately for some of us allergies aren't always the seasonal kind. Food allergies don't have to be the rain on your brunch parade, Creature Comfort's gluten-free strawberries and cream cupcakes and With Style & Grace's dairy-free yogurt and berries are wonderful alternatives that don't sacrifice taste for comfort.
If it's something a little more heartier you quest after for your brunch experience, why not serve up something like this savory sausage and mushroom bake courtesy of Kalyn's Kitchen. Turkey sausage gives this brunch-worthy dish its heft while mushrooms and feta cheese offer a satisfyingly sophisticated touch.
The essence of brunch may be the meal's simplicity—a backdrop to good conversation and weekend afternoon relaxation, but feel free to get as creative as you want!
