For this party, I chose a Friday morning and invited over some of my blogging friends for a girl friends brunch.  We had the best time!  It was a morning of making some really great connections, and so much encouragement and celebrating each others success.  This menu is also a great way to celebrate with the whole family.  There’s nothing like a special occasion breakfast.  A finger food beautiful brunch is a great idea for your next party.  It would be great for celebrating Mother’s Day, for a baby shower or bridal shower as well.

Easter Brunch Table

Let me share the details of the pretty and easy tablescape with you.  I wanted to keep things a little more casual so I set everything up in the kitchen, rather than the dining room.  It made the get together feel more laid back and put my guests at ease as soon as they arrived.

The table is a pretty combination of spring pastels.  I started out with the pretty watercolor floral pillows.

The pillows set the tone for the rest of the tablescape. I thought it would be fun to use Easter candy as decor in pretty mason jars on the table -and for my guests to nibble on throughout the party.

We used a simple runner on the table and layered on a piece of linen.  I didn’t want the table to be too sweet, so I felt like the more rustic linens, and un-ironed napkins kept it a bit more rustic.

The primroses are a nice spring touch.  I thought they looked pretty wrapped in some moss and in placed in these lanterns.

I also used these pretty vintage little bowls, perfect for our Granola Cereal Buffet.  It’s always fun incorporating some vintage treasures.

To make things causal and easy I set up the food in a little buffet, so guests could help themselves.

Mini Quiche and Sausage Rolls

Since it was breakfast, sausage and eggs seemed essential.  So, I picked up some frozen mini quiche.  These were perfect for brunch, they’re like little mini breakfast casseroles in a pastry.  They’re perfect for a finger food buffet.  I also and ordered some mini sausage rolls from my local bakery.  They were so good.  I warmed these up to serve them, but they’re also delicious room temperature.

Hot Cross Buns

Since it’s Easter, I also ordered some hot cross buns.  I offered guests butter, jam, and cheese to go with them.  These were delicious and festive with minimal effort.  Another time of year you could serve something like bagels or mini bagels with different toppings instead.  Regular cream cheese, salmon, capers, and cucumbers or sweet cream cheese would be a great thing to offer.

Breakfast Sweets and Pastries

For some more sweet treats, I also picked up a some mini cinnamon rolls and made some easy bake at home turnovers.  When I was making the turnovers I cut them in half so they’d be mini size too.  Cutting things down is a great idea to keep everything finger food size and fun way to allow your guests to try lots of different breakfast classics without getting too full.  Buying some things, and getting some ready to bake are an easy way to offer lots of variety without having to cook all day.  Other fun breakfast sweet ideas are mini pancakes or french toast sticks, or mini waffles, or something like muffins, donuts, or danishes.

I made some of my famous homemade granola -find the recipe here.

Along with the granola, there was some different things to add to it to create a parfait.  We had different fruits, greek yogurt, maple syrup, honey, and some special toppings.  The fresh fruit we had was cantaloupe, strawberries, and black berries.  Other berries, bananas, and pineapple would be great to include too, or even a fruit salad.

I used some little mason jars to serve some dried fruits like coconut, raisins, dried cranberries, and also chocolate chips.  More great additions I might include include next time would be peanut butter, almond butter, different flavors of yogurt, and dark chocolate chips. 

Parfait Serving Pieces

On the table my guests had some beautiful vintage footed dessert bowls that were perfect for making their own parfait in.  Remember you want quite a small bowl for this, so choose something smaller than a cereal bowl.  Stemless wine glasses would be a great option for this as well.

I think my guests loved the granola bar the most.  It was everyone’s favourite breakfast food option.  Everyone could choose exactly what simple ingredients they wanted and suit their own taste buds.  This idea is perfect for small or large groups, since everyone can help themselves.  Infact, this is the one thing that my guests kept returning to make another parfait with their favorite ingredients, and try new combinations.

It truly was so much fun having a blogger meet up, and I think my guests had a good time too since my brunch lasted most of the day.  A sure sign of a good party is lingering guests.  This menu was really easy to put together, since a lot of it was store bought, or make ahead.  Everyone really enjoyed the food and I would recommend this easy menu for your next brunch or breakfast get together.  Finger food size was so easy to put together, and for everyone to enjoy.
