Brunch: Semi-Homemade Style
By: Jon Peters
One of my absolute favorite things to do on Sundays is brunch. I appreciate being able to roll out of bed at noon to devour breakfast foods and enjoy never-ending mimosas. This past weekend I decided to invite over a few friends and throw a little get together of my own at mi casa. I decided to put everything together on the cheap (naturally), so I had one of my best friends help out and it ended up being a blast. Here are a few shots that I wanted to share that prove throwing a great brunch doesn’t require slaving over the stove or shelling out all your dough (figuratively + literally)…just make sure to remember enough champagne!
Candles helped to add warmth and color to the smorgasbord. Not to mention they make the whole room smell awesome!
A pitcher of lemonade always looks inviting and can be as easy as chopping up some lemons, adding some ice, and popping open a few cans of minute maid! (Not that I did that..)
Muffins literally cost $1.50 per box, and I find that minis are the perfect size because they make twice as many and are great to pop in your mouth. Who likes to just “nom nom nom” on the same ‘ole muffin when there’s more fun stuff to eat? Go with minis.
Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries made for a great yogurt parfait bar. Just add some granola (I personally went with dark chocolate almond because it’s delish) for the perfect summer berry parfait!
These Bravo TV champagne flutes were a gift from a friend. They each have a funny saying or logo but what I really appreciate about them is that they are a nice weight (unlike my other flutes..*cough* Ikea) so no matter how cheap the champagne, you’ll feel like your drinking with the best!
So for Christmas I received the Krispy Kreme calendar which is pretty awesome because dozens are usually buy 1, get one free. Ditch the white cardboard box in favor of a silver serving tray, pile ‘em high into a pyramid, and viola! Presentation is everything.
Never underestimate the power of flowers (flower power!), in fact, this bouquet only cost about $5 and made a huge difference in my dining room. Besides, who wouldn’t want fresh flowers in their home? They just make everything better!
Long story short: Brunch is a fun way to bring friends together and doesn’t necessarily have to take a lot of time or effort to become a success. Thanks for checking out my pictures and hope to see y’all at the next one!
