Bountiful brunch won't break the bank

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

There are many advantages to having your next catered or restaurant event a brunch, not the least of which is cost. Brunches are becoming so popular for parties that many couples are opting for a brunch wedding reception thanks to their affordability and cache.

Brunches are not only advantageous because of cost. If you are selecting a venue for your next event that is very popular, having the occasion earlier in the day may ensure availability of your preferred room or space. A brunch also enables you to open up the event to a wider guest list. Senior citizens or children can enjoy a brunch without worry of late-night hours or travel after dark.

A brunch also frees up the rest of the day -- something guests may thank you for if they are double-booked on weekends or prefer some wind-down time after a party.

A brunch typically starts somewhere between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. This enables you to serve refreshments either as a late breakfast or early lunch, thus the term brunch. Menu options are as varied as you would like. A buffet brunch enables guests to pick and choose from among breakfast and lunch foods. Popular options are fresh fruit, bagels and pastries, omelettes, French toast, muffins, light pasta dishes, fish, finger sandwiches, and salads.

It is usually not necessary to have an extensive alcohol list at a brunch event. One or two signature cocktails and the availability of gourmet coffees, teas and other refreshing beverages will fit much better with the theme. Mimosas and Bellinis are cocktails that can be served at a brunch and will meet with guests' delight.
