Hosting a brunch for friends can be a fun and delicious way to spend time together. Whether you’re planning a casual gathering or a more formal affair, there are a few key tips to keep in mind to ensure your brunch is a success.

Guest List

Most importantly, plan ahead. Pick a date and time that works for everyone, and be sure to confirm with your guests a few days before the event. 

Menu Planning

Brunch is typically a combination of breakfast and lunch dishes, so consider offering a mix of sweet and savory options. Some popular brunch dishes include eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, muffins, fruit, and, of course, a chicken bacon cheese ring! Also offer a variety of beverages, such as coffee, tea, juice, and mimosas.

If you’re not sure what to make, consider asking your guests to bring a dish to share. This can help lighten the load on you as the host, and it also allows your guests to contribute to the meal and show off their culinary skills. 

Set The Table

For a casual gathering, a simple yet attractive table setting is all you need. Use a tablecloth or placemats to add color and interest, and set out dishes, utensils, and glasses.

For a more formal affair, consider using linen tablecloths and napkins, and add some decorative elements such as flowers or candles to create a beautiful and inviting atmosphere.


Once the table is set and the food is ready, it’s time to enjoy the brunch with your friends. Be sure to have plenty of seating available, and consider setting up a buffet-style spread to make it easy for guests to serve themselves.

Hostess with the Mostess

As the host, your main goal is to ensure that your guests are comfortable and happy.

Be sure to greet everyone as they arrive, and make introductions if necessary.

Keep an eye on the food and drinks to make sure they are replenished as needed, and be ready to assist with any problems or questions that may arise.
