Fall Brunch

Last week I invited a few friends over for a fall brunch to celebrate the fall season. There were some last minute kinks that came up but in the end everything came together great!


I wanted the menu to have an autumn feel so I served some of my favorite seasonal foods:

I decided against serving banana muffins and replaced them on the menu with the fresh vegetables instead. I already had apple bread and baked doughnuts planned and the fresh vegetables helped “lighten up” things.


I also had a coffee bar available--complete with some cute disposable coffee cups that fit perfectly with the theme. We used a Keurig coffee maker so everyone brewed their favorite blend and then picked through the options at the coffee bar:
  • Pumpkin spice syrup (recipe coming soon)
  • Creamer
  • Sugar
  • Splenda
  • Fresh whipped cream
I also had another drink station set-up that had water, orange juice, and sparkling grape juice. I printed out a fall themed picture and found a somewhat rustic frame to put it in. I wasn’t able to get a photo of all the decor together, but in the bottom right corner of this photo shows the framed print.

Overall, everything went great. Planning ahead definitely helped! Everyone had a great time and I can’t wait until next fall to host another one! :)
