A Sunday brunch is a great way to get together and have a good time with friends. The meal is the main part of the brunch, but you also have to figure out how you’re going to fit all the guests into your apartment. Here are a few ideas to get you going on a Sunday brunch.
What Time to Host One
Before you come up with a brunch you first have to figure out the best time to host it. For a Sunday brunch, you have to be careful that you don’t start it too early. The point is to have fun, so you don’t want to people rubbing their eyes and grumbling when they get there. Some people don’t wake up until 10 ‘o clock in the morning on weekends. 11 to 11:30 a.m. is usually a good time to get started. It ultimately depends upon your decision, of course.
Making a Sunday Brunch Affordable
If you’re on a tight budget, there are still some fun ways to do a brunch affordably. One option is to do a potluck-style brunch, where everyone brings a dish. This takes a little more coordination on your part. You’ll have to organize everyone and make sure there’s a good variety of dishes, so everyone doesn’t show up with scrambled eggs. A potluck can make the brunch more fun because of variety, and the costs of the meal are split this way.
How to Invite People. How Many?
The fact that you’re in an apartment can limit how many guests you invite to a Sunday brunch. Figure out how many people you can reasonably and comfortably fit in your apartment. Will you just seat guests at the dining table, or will you squeeze more into the living room and kitchen areas? Keep in mind that you only have one bathroom for the crowd of people you’re inviting over.
You also have to figure out how to invite them. Making your own invitations is a cost effective way to ask guests over. Another option is invite everyone by email, and make sure to have them RSVP with the number of people that will be coming with them. If every guest brings one extra person, you might suddenly find yourself running out of room (or food).
Sunday Brunch Decorations
When you’re getting ready for a brunch you should make sure that your house is not only presentable, but pretty. One way to do that is by putting fresh flowers on your table as a centerpiece. Floating candles are also good for your table. They’re interesting and look pretty as a centerpiece.
Having a Sunday brunch can be one of the joys of the weekend. It’s an old fashioned tradition that can be used to spice up your apartment entertaining routine. If you want to host one, you have to prepare a little first. Enjoy your brunch.
