Who doesn’t love brunch? From the draw of bottomless mimosas to ‘grammable dishes like avocado toast and acai bowls, it’s the perfect excuse to get all your friends together for some daytime fun. While there’s nothing wrong with making a standing reservation every Sunday, occasionally you need a break from the hoopla that goes along with dining out — namely those $15 Bloody Mary’s. The solution? Having your squad over for a homemade meal. Below, you’ll find 13 essentials every hostess needs before hosting a brunch party. Go ahead, #BrunchQueen!
Sometimes you need a jolt of caffeine before hitting up the bar cart. For those groggy mornings, bust out the espresso machine and this playful cup collection illustrated by Italian artist Olimpia Zagnoli. Your friends will have fun picking out which character best represents their personality.
Before hosting a brunch party, fill your home with a decadent scent. With notes of toasted pecans, waffle batter, vanilla, cinnamon, melted butter, and whipped cream, this candle will have everyone feeling like they’re dining at their favorite breakfast joint.
While there’s nothing wrong with serving quiche, scrambled eggs or even a breakfast casserole, really wow guests by griddling up made-to-order fried egg sandwiches. These non-stick rings are the secret to a perfectly cooked (and rounded) egg.
After a filling meal, the last thing you want is a full-blown dessert spread. That’s what makes these coffee-infused gummy bears so genius. The trio of flavors — cold brew, iced vanilla latte, and bourbon cold brew — are just enough to satisfy both your sweet tooth and post-meal coffee craving. (They also make great party favors.)
Finally, you’ll need flower arrangements. Of course, you can make your own when hosting a brunch party. Or, leave it to the pros and order fresh bouquets to be delivered to your door. Urban Stems works with local farmers to create fresh, unique bouquets that make for the perfect tablescape. Also nice? The arrangements start at just $35 and are delivered nationwide.
