Serving a family brunch on the big day is certainly growing in appeal.
Enthusiasts tell us there’s nothing like a delicious morning spread to celebrate and entertain when everyone attending is the most refreshed. A breakfast brunch can also be the perfect alternative to a family dinner for large extended families with scheduling conflicts. Not only is it easier, but it can also be less expensive to plan and prepare. Here are a few ways to make your holiday brunch one of the most memorable meals of the year:
Enforce a dress code: Breakfast is a much more casual affair, so have some fun. Ask everyone to wear their ugliest holiday sweaters then start taking photos.
Crank the holiday tunes: Get everyone in an upbeat mood by cranking a few holiday classics. How can anyone resist the family favourites?
Set up a breakfast bar: Avoid spending the entire time in the kitchen by setting up a self-serve table. Let your guests customize their own breakfast Panini, or create their own yogurt cup with favourites like fruit, Nutella, and granola.
