I do not know why but somehow in my head spring and brunch go hand in hand. However, sometimes organizing a brunch seems a little overwhelming since you need many different elements to make it truly awesome. But today I am going to show you how to throw a Spring Brunch that is easy, stress free and focuses on the most important thing: Community.
Throwing a brunch always feels a little tempting to me because you need so many different ingredients from bread to eggs to waffles and cake and salads and I always seem to forget the butter! Luckily, I always have an overflow of butter in my fridge.
I believe you can make your Spring Brunch a group effort; you can keep it simple and use what you have to make a pretty table.
How to throw a Spring Brunch
Make it a group effort
We were 14 people for my brunch and there was no way I was going to prepare all the food by myself so I sent out a doodle with a list of what I wanted to be on the table and people chose whatever they wanted to bring. That made it a whole lot easier for me. Bonus Tip: sometimes I ask my friends to bring food in their prettiest bowls to make sure my table is not full of Tupperware. Yes, I am that picky 😉
Keep it simple
I am lucky I have collected plates and silverware to host bigger groups over the years but I do not have all matching napkins, silverware, and plates for 14 people. That is why you can feel free to just mix and match whatever you have. The same goes for chairs by the way as you can clearly see that none of my chairs mixes. I actually had to borrow some chairs from my neighbors to fit everybody around the table.
Use what you have
Sometimes we see these really elaborate tables on Pinterest and they can seem daunting and scary because I personally do not have the time or interest in doing crafts for 5 days let alone one day. What I was able to do though was cook a few veggies to color some eggs. Well 60 eggs to be exact and I am still eating them.
I threw my brunch right after Easter but I do not think that colored eggs need to be exclusively reserved for Easter. I was inspired by this table and used their method to color them in really dark earthy colors.
My egg cartons were yellow so I just spent an evening water coloring them in dark blue, which rendered this very uneven color. Now for a full disclaimer I really do not like crafting or painting at all so if I can do this so can you.
If you wanted to go with flowers, I would suggest picking some from local fields or if you do not want to do any decorations, you can use your food as the centerpiece. My table did not have any room for food other than the eggs and the salt so we transformed my kitchen into a buffet.
There you have it friends. An affordable, easy way to throw a Spring Brunch. I hope it encourages you to throw one yourself and get those awesome people in your life around the table.
