Hosting guests in your home is always a fun activity, but there are some occasions where you want to go above and beyond the typical gathering. If you have plans on hosting an elegant brunch for guests at your home, there are some basic steps worth taking. This will ensure everything goes smoothly, the event is sophisticated, your guests feel welcome, and it’s a huge success. Here are four tips you’ll want to use for your upcoming brunch.

Set the Menu in Advance

The last thing you want to do is rush around on the morning of the brunch trying to figure out the menu. This will cause a whole lot of unnecessary stress and panic. Instead, plan out the menu at least a few days in advance so you can get your grocery shopping done and even do a little preparation the night before (if possible). When choosing the menu, you want to be mindful of any food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances your guests may have. Be sure to ask them about food preferences when you send the invite. You can spark some menu creativity by searching online for brunch recipes. If you plan on trying a new-to-you recipe, you may want to give it a trial run first.

Make Sure There is Ample Seating and Space at the Table

Ideally, you want all your guests to feel comfortable and not rush through their meal. Providing ample seating and space at the table will help to ensure no one feels rushed or uncomfortable. This may involve rearranging furniture in the room to make more space, or even renting a folding table if you have a lot of guests attending.

Add a Pop of Decor to the Table

Because much of the visit will be spent around the table chatting and enjoying the meal, it’s a nice touch to add some decor to the table. A simple, yet beautiful solution is to have a fresh arrangement of flowers in the middle of the table. It adds a pop of colour and a fresh and beautiful aroma to the entire room. It elevates the meal to feel more sophisticated. To save you time and hassle, why not set up an online flower delivery either the night before the brunch or the morning of? This means the flowers will be at their freshest, looking stunning. Also, to add décor to the table, this is when you want to bring out all your matching tableware and go the extra mile with cloth napkins, polished silverware, sparkling glassware and so forth.

Help Create Ambiance with Music

Continuing with the elegant vibe, music can help to set the scene and create the kind of atmosphere you’re going for. Besides picking the “right” music, you also want to be mindful of the volume. It should be just loud enough to be heard, but not interfere with people’s ability to chat and hold a conversation at a normal speaking volume.

Using each of these tips will help you to host the most elegant and beautiful brunch for your guests.
