Brunch is seriously great at any time of the day or the week! Whether you're hosting for friends, putting together a nice meal for your family, or just treating yourself, we've got you covered on everything you need to plan the perfect brunch


How to Host the Perfect Brunch Party


Tip 1: Plan and preorder your meal ahead of time

Prepping brunch ahead of the party is key – that way, you know everyone will be fed and good to go.

Make the morning-of easy peasy! It's helpful to preorder breakfast because it'll be ready to go when guests arrive, meaning less time spent cooking and more time spent socializing.

Tip 2: Have more than one option

This is a pro-tip on how to host brunch: Always have more than one food option when hosting.

You can check with your guests ahead of time to see if they have any food allergies, likes, or dislikes. But regardless, it’s always a good idea to have options. If you go with the breakfast pizza as your main course, think about having fresh fruit as a side, and donuts or muffins for your sweets lovers.


Tip 3: Don't forget the drinks

Sometimes you can be so focused on the food, that drinks completely slip your mind! You don't need anything fancy to drink (though who can resist a refreshing mimosa?), just make sure to have the basics like coffee, juice, and water available for guests to grab throughout the party.

How to Make the Perfect Brunch Just for YOU!

Whether it's before you head into work, or on a cozy Sunday morning at home, making a perfect brunch for yourself is a great way to start your day with a smile.


Step 1:

Consider what your favorite breakfast foods are and think of a few items that you for sure want to include in your meal. For example, if you're a fan of omelets, think of the ingredients you'll need, such as eggs, cheese, and veggies.

Make sure to have a good balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and healthy fats to keep you feeling full and satisfied.


Step 2:

Set up your spot! Find a cozy spot in your home that you can enjoy your brunch from.

If you have a dining room table or breakfast nook, that will work great, but if not, you can create an area with a table and chairs or just a cozy spot on the couch with some pillows and blankets.

If you want to create a special atmosphere, consider adding some candles, flowers, or a nice tablecloth.

Step 3:

Make or order the food! Depending on what you choose for food, order it in the Casey's app or start cooking. Don't stress, just enjoy cooking, and maybe snack a little bit along the way!
