The familiar aroma of a home-cooked meal, the sound of soothing music in the background, and the sun’s warm glow peering through the window all run synonymous with a weekend brunch. This beloved tradition brings people together to bond over a shared connection and a deep appreciation of food. Here’s how you can host your own epic brunch celebration this season.

Serve in Style

Every brunch enthusiast knows that the secret to hosting a beautiful brunch is setting a stellar tablescape display. Think decorative tablecloths or runners, large charger plates, and colorful napkins with rings. Get down to the details with handwritten place cards on simple craft paper and seasonal flowers freshly picked from your yard.

Liven Up the Atmosphere

The mood is set, your senses are ignited, and the vibes are immaculate. That’s all due to the atmosphere that you created. Pull open the curtains and let the natural light pour into the room; illuminate your brunch display with tapered candles to add some warmth; and allow the gentle melody of your favorite playlist to fill the quiet moments while chatter and laughter enliven the room.

Rise and Dine

Incredibly flavorful, easy to prepare and ideal for sharing, our four recipes masterfully created by chef Yvette Kerns and mixologist Taylor Redd will be a hit at your next Sunday brunch. From the fizz of the prosecco in Taylor’s mimosa to the crunch of Yvette’s Blueberry Peach Crisp, our curated pairings will become your quintessential brunch classics.
