Brunch is the perfect easy entertaining scenario. I like brunch because there’s not as much pressure as there would be say hosting a dinner party. Plus there’s COFFEE, lots and lots of COFFEE. Something everyone who knows me knows I’m very passionate about. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us now is actually the perfect time to host a casual brunch for friends and family. To catch up, chat about this and that and consume copious amounts of coffee and culinary creations. That’s exactly what I did last weekend.
I invited over a few friends and family members over and we started out with what else? Coffee. I set up a DIY Coffee Bar complete with a Keurig® Special Edition Brewing System and Starbucks® Vanilla and Caramel K-Cups®. K-Cups are great for entertaining because it allows you to provide your guests with the perfect cup of Starbucks coffee in a variety of flavors (Vanilla, Caramel) or their favorite Starbucks blend. Hot coffee at the push of a button it’s a VERY good thing.
To compliment our Starbucks® Vanilla and Caramel K-Cups® coffee we served: PANETTONE FRENCH TOAST, HAM ASPARAGUS & MUSHROOM FRITTATA, BAKED BACON, STRAWBERRY JELLY FILLED DOUGHNUTS, FRESH FRUIT, CHEESE & CRACKERS.
To go along with our relaxed menu we set a rustic and eclectic table that included fresh flowers in mason jars, coffee stained cloth napkins wrapped in twine with fresh rosemary and butcher paper down the center of the table. A mixture of wood chargers, white plates and pewter ware pulled everything together and gave us the atmosphere we were looking to create.
