What better way to enjoy the weekend than with friends over good food and a cup of coffee to catch up on the craziness (or lack thereof) from the week before?

Brunch parties are a whole lot of fun as you can get together during the day. And then afterwards, you still have the whole afternoon and evening ahead of you.

So how do you host a brunch party? I know hosting a brunch party (or any party for that matter) can be daunting at first thought with all the planning.

But hopefully I’ll provide some inspiration and ideas. My goal is to make it a smooth and easy event for you.

Host A Fabulous Brunch Party In Your Home

The following is a list of brunch food ideas and brunch party ideas I’ve picked up from my own experience hosting brunches.

1. Take Your Time To Come Up With A Menu For Your Brunch Party

Brunch parties are relaxed affairs. You can certainly throw together a menu at the last minute.

However, if you have the luxury, it helps to be meticulous about planning a brunch party menu. There’s a lot of time management involved if you have many mouths to feed. And of course, you want to eat with your guests.

Personally, I always start planning my menu for a brunch party about a week ahead. That way I know I have enough time to get all the ingredients and knick knacks (skewers, garnishes, fresh cut flowers for the table).

A well-thought out menu will make all the difference when it comes to seamlessly serving your dishes and drinks.

Here’s a sample menu (and some brunch food ideas for you) I created for a pop up brunch party I hosted in the past. As you can see, it includes a variety of food types including:

  • a carb dish (berry white chocolate muffins),
  • a dish with greens (dino kale salad with lardons and lemon vinaigrette),
  • a substantive meat/egg dish (dippy eggs with grilled cheese soldiers),
  • a sweet dish (waffles with fresh whipped cream and berries), and
  • a fruity dish (yogurt parfait with spiced berry compote).

If you want to have a more elaborate main dish, then make sure you have some easy starters to snack on while you’re putting the finishing touches on the main.

Or maybe you want to maximize your socializing time. In which case… see number 5 below for breakfast casserole ideas.

2. If You’re Hosting Brunch, Don’t Forget To Set Up A Coffee Station

I’m not sure you could actually have a brunch let alone host a brunch party without coffee. It is obviously a MUST.

To make it fun and to everyone’s preference, just set up a coffee station. That way, each guest can make their coffee to their liking. Set out milk, alternative milks, sugar, creamers.

And if you’re real coffee nuts, set up a couple of different brew methods such as having a bottle of cold brew and a pour-over coffee on display.

  • Here’s a recipe for a delicious cold brew concentrate
  • Here’s a recipe for a tea-like cold brew that you serve straight up – no milk needed.

I confess I do enjoy wowing guests with an artisanal pour-over coffee like they’re used to seeing in coffee shops. (Learn how to brew coffee using the pour-over method in this detailed post.)

Although a coffee station can be self-explanatory, a placemat like this is a fun way to designate a coffee station (or maybe that hungover friend really could use the signage!).

Additionally, the benefit of a coffee station is it keeps guests occupied with something they’re familiar with. As they make their own coffees, you can be busy socializing or finishing off the brunch meal.

As a general rule, the earlier you host your breakfast party, the more coffee you’ll need.

I made this coffee placemat with Snapfish. It’s a budget-friendly table décor that makes your coffee station look like a million dollars!

3. Give Your Brunch A Party Feel With Some Cocktails Or Mocktails

People need coffee, but people love cocktails and mocktails. There’s just something fun about the word and vibes associated with it, like this Good Morning Sunburst Mocktail or this Blackberry Ginger Mocktail. Who can turn down something that sounds so fun?

Or if you are looking for something stronger, but still refreshing enough for brunch, you’ll love this Hibiscus Lemon Gin Cocktail.

4. Don’t Neglect Your Drinks Presentation. A Brunch Party Idea: Coasters

Just as plating food makes all the difference for whether something looks appetizing, this brunch party idea will make your table setting a little more lux.

Like having saucers for coffee cups, incorporate brunch coasters as part of your juice or mocktail presentation.

These coasters are easily made with Snapfish and the personalisation aspect is unique, making them a wonderful keepsake. Be the good host and send your guest home with one or two or three of them. It’s a fun and meaningful gift that reflects the time you spent together that morning.

If you are hosting a brunch birthday party, these coasters make great treat bags for the guests. You can use any fun brunch sayings that you like, but a few to get you started:

  • Brunch Power
  • Brunch Squad
  • Egg-celle-nt
  • Bloom Baby Bloom
  • Where have you bean?

5. Include At Least One Casserole On The Menu For Your Brunch Party

I’m not going to lie, but the majority of my brunch parties always involve a casserole of some sort because they are easy. They’re the perfect dish to serve because they offer large portions that are ready to be served at the same time.

Looking for a savory brunch food idea? Try Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole, Bacon Breakfast Casserole or Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole.

Looking for a sweet brunch food idea? Try Challah French Toast Casserole or Apple French Toast Casserole.

6. Actually, Any Make Ahead Recipes Are Your Friend When Planning A Menu And Looking For Brunch Food Ideas

If casseroles aren’t your thing, then that’s OKAY! There are tons of other make ahead recipes that allow you to do most of the preparation before your guests arrive

For a brunch food idea that guests can snack on, you could try these Oatmeal Energy Balls. For a sit-down brunch party, I’ve found that this Overnight Chia Seed with Yogurt is a popular one.

But the real winner for the brunch food idea that’s also a make ahead recipe is hands down this Healthy Peach Crisp with Granola that can be served warm if baked the day of, or cold if baked the day before.

7. Set Out Finger Foods And Brunch Canapes So You Have Time To Finish Up Your Main Dish

When guests have food and a drink in their hands, you don’t need to worry about them, so make sure you include at least one “brunch appetizer” on your brunch party menu, just in case that casserole needs a bit longer cooking time than anticipated.

Custardy, lightly sweet, and golden brown, this French toast recipe is the perfect weekend brunch.

I can’t imagine a better brunch than thick slices of banana bread alongside something savory (read on for ideas!). Made with almond flour, it’s super moist & nutty. Add in the fact that it’s easy to make & nicely spiced, and you have a loaf that checks all the banana bread boxes.

Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes

6. Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes

It comes as no surprise that I’m crazy for these lemon pancakes, but try them, and I’m sure you will be too. The lemon juice goes perfectly with the cornmeal base. Blueberries for serving are highly recommended. 🙂

7. Best Carrot Cake

I make a carrot cake for Jack’s April birthday every year, so to me, it’s one of the first signs of spring. Slices of this moist, nutty cake would be the perfect finish to a big spring brunch. And if you’re vegan, check out this recipe.

Buckwheat waffles

8. Almond Flour Buckwheat Waffles

If you or one of your guests is gluten-free, these waffles have to go on the menu. The almond and buckwheat flours give them a great nutty flavor, and they’re perfectly crisp. Top with fresh fruit and maple syrup for absolute waffle heaven.

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

9. Baked Oatmeal With Blueberries

Nothing beats a crisp, oat-y, nutty topping over soft baked oats and fruit. This make-ahead recipe is one of my favorites for serving a crowd, and it’s excellent with any seasonal fruit. Peaches, cherries, or another berry would all be good here.
