I love to gather for brunch, especially during the holidays! It’s not too early, not too late, and there is so much flexibility with the menu. It can be as simple or as fancy as you want it to be.
You know I love to mix paper products with real linens! Here, I layered the green check paper placemat with the Santa placemat offset to the side so you can see his face! I used plaid cloth napkins to dress it up and add texture.
The pinecone and berry confetti adds another festive touch (and we also love to use the confetti papers on serving stations and charcuterie boards). For finishing touches, silverware is tucked into a Christmas pouch, and a Caspari “cracker” is placed above each place setting. These crackers (also called poppers) contain a little prize that pops out when opened. They are such a fun little party favor, and we have a great variety of them for different occasions.
We printed the brunch menu on these holiday papers, which are actually from notepads we have available here at the store. We carefully removed them from the pad, and they went through our printer without problems. We will definitely be using that idea again!
You might have noticed the “Bloody Mary Bar” on the menu–because what is brunch without something spicy?
For a Bloody Mary bar, you could mix up a pitcher as the base and let guests add their own garnishes, or you could have the mix and vodka for guests to mix their own. I always keep extra napkins and drinks on the bottom shelf of our handy bar cart. I love to include a drink recipe or two, and you’ll almost always find my signature mouse hiding amongst the setup!
We have some festive disposable cups that work great for any type of drink. The plastic cups (front) can be reused and are dishwasher safe on the top rack.
In case brunch isn’t on your holiday menu, here are a few more festive tablescapes for more inspiration…
