How to Throw a Brunch

By: Patrick Cater

Whether its a Sunday morning and you want to invite some of your friends over to get together, or you need to throw some sort of celebration party for a coworkers promotion, a great way to do it is by holding a brunch. Throwing a brunch might seem difficult, but its no more difficult than throwing any other type of party, you just need to know what you are doing.
First, you must decide on a theme. Of course, its going to be breakfast food, but try to be more specific. Is it going to be fast and simple with mostly donuts and bagels or hard rolls? Or is it going to be eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast with servers. How fancy your brunch is will have a big impact on price and amount of work.
The more people that come the more it will cost. Don't serve the fancier more expensive foods when you know a lot of people are coming. Try to tone it down. Make more expensive and detailed foods when there are less people and it is going to be more intimate.
If you are going to do a quick lunch or a more detailed lunch you are going to need specifics either way. What kind of food will you need? Be specific about what kinds and how much. Don't forget beverages, plates, napkins, utensils, etc. Make up a grocery list with specific items and amounts.
What about a pancake party? This is a great way to throw a fun brunch. Set out all different kinds of pancakes and put out lots of different toppings. You can even have people make their own if you are feeling brave.
Decide on how much food you will have to serve. Make sure you know how many people will be attending. If its at work, it shouldnt be too difficult because most people do go to work on a regular basis, but if its your own party, try to get people to R.S.V.P. Be accurate with your food so that you dont waste food and money. If you are going to have eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, potatoes, and donuts, dont expect that everyone is going to have the same amount of each. Still, make sure you have enough. Buying too much and having left-overs is better than running out and leaving half of your guests without food.
Next you will have to think beyond food. Are you going to decorate? Even just having pretty tablecloths and napkins and fancy cups and plates can make it look just a little more special. You can do a lot with brunch decorations.
Set a date, and ask people for help if there are going to be a lot of guests. If you are asking others to bring food, make sure they are actually going to bring in what they offered and that they are bringing enough. Most importantly, dont stress out too much, just have fun.
