How To Host The Perfect Brunch
The best time for brunch? Since Brunch is the lovechild of Breakfast and Lunch, anywhere after 10am – 2pm are prime Brunch times. Most people like weekend brunch so you can sit and relax, without having to rush back for work.
- Buffet style is best. Take what you want, serve yourself, and you can try a variety of foods.
- Serve foods that don't require last-minute prep – fruit trays, quiches, and salads offer quick setup.
- Don't forget the drinks! Offer a variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.
- Make a list of your meals ahead of time- prep everything you can the day before, get decorations ready so all you have to do it take them to the table, and clean up the house and bathrooms.

Blintz souffle is an easy and delicious brunch or breakfast dish. The creamy, cheesy filling mimics a traditional blintz, but instead of making and rolling crepes, the batter is baked over the filling. The fresh blueberry sauce on top brings additional flavor and visual appeal.
Crepes are such a classic nice and fancy breakfast option. They may seem difficult to make but they are actually very simple and easy in this savory crepes recipe. While you can make them sweet with fruits and chocolates, this recipe has smoked salmon and cream cheese as it’s stuffing and it is so so good! Move over nutella stuffed crepes.
Don't Forget That Brunch Is Supposed To Be Relaxing!
The best part of brunch is getting to sit down and relax with your friends and family. Don't stress over the food or the decorations. Brunch can be the chance to show off your culinary skills, or as simple as bagels and cream cheese. But don't forget to breathe and take time to relax.
