Festive Christmas Brunch Ideas

Plan a Christmas brunch with friends and family using these very merry Christmas brunch ideas!

According to us, the best thing about the holiday season isn't the food, parties, cocktails, presents or music - it's the people you enjoy all that festivity with that really make Christmastime so special. Planning a Christmas brunch is the perfect way to celebrate this special time of year.

 

 

When we saw this dove in the clearance section of the store, we had a plan for the table decor. We got our little bird all gussied up for the party and placed it in a huge bowl of colorful and shiny Christmas ornaments. 

This Christmas centerpiece was easy to assemble and yet had a very unique look to it. Using Christmas ornaments is a great way to add sparkle, shine and color to a table - without breaking the bank. It's super easy, inexpensive, and provides a festive statement where ever you want it.

 

 

If you're having a Christmas gathering or party, consider decorating a small tree with ornaments that compliment your theme. In keeping with the look of our Christmas party invitation, we added a touch of blue to our tree, and hung lots of different heart-shaped ornaments.

 

 

Because everyone's calendars are so full of holiday activities and engagements, we decided to invite our neighbors in for warm cinnamon rolls and coffee on the first Saturday morning in December. It's become a neighborhood tradition that we all look forward to. The menu and preparation is simple: cinnamon rolls from our local bakery, fresh fruit kebabs, coffee, hot cocoa and orange juice. Christmas food can be anything that reminds you of the holiday season!

 

 

The children love the fresh fruit kebabs. With some colorful paper, and a few paper punches  we created a decorative topper for each of the skewers. We threaded chunks of bananas, clementine oranges, and holiday grapes for a yummy treat-on-a-stick.

 

 

Half-pint mason jars were perfect for serving the orange juice. We popped a red and white striped straw in the glasses to give the drink a holiday touch.

 

 

It's easy to take coffee to the next level by setting up a coffee bar. Carafes of freshly brewed coffee were placed on the table where guests could choose to personalize their cup of coffee with cinnamon, vanilla powder, chocolate powder, cream, sugar, or a dollop of whipped cream.  Stir it with a chocolate covered spoon, and everyone is happy!

 

 

Small glass plates or decorative Christmas plates are perfect for a warm, buttery cinnamon roll and fruit kebab. Guests help themselves and then sit where they'd like to enjoy the yummy rolls while they catch up on the goings-on in our neighborhood. 

 

 

We loved adding a touch of aqua blue to our holiday table. We were delighted to find the same blue and white pattern on long trays that were perfect  for serving the cinnamon rolls and fruit.

 

 

The holiday message of JOY on our invitation made its way to the table in entry way  too. Wooden letters from Dwelling Interiors were custom designed to match our holiday theme.
