Memorial Day is right around the corner, and as we all prepare for our three-day weekend, we need to remember those who died protecting and serving our country! Hosting a Memorial Day brunch is a good way to promote remembrance, uphold an important tradition, and spend your holiday with your family. With the following tips, you can have a lovely brunch setup for your family and friends to enjoy.
Décor and Table Setting
Open your Bi-Folds, Multi-Slides, Lift and Slides, or French Swing Patio Doors and plan to dine outside this Memorial Day! Make sure your outdoor furniture is clean and ready to go and enhance your dining table with a table cloth and some centerpieces—we suggest beautiful flowers! Use simple placemats, cutlery, and dinnerware to add even more of your unique touch.
If you’re in need of additional dining space, open your Bi-Fold Windows and pull up some barstools to use your passthrough window as a breakfast bar! You can also use this space to serve the food buffet style.
Planning a great menu is key to hosting a successful brunch. Be sure to include both sweet and savory dishes on your menu so your friends and family have options. Delish has some easy and tasty recipes to feature on your brunch menu which can be found here. One of our savory favorites is the Brunch Lasagna which only takes an hour to bake and feeds about 10 people! For sweet dishes, we cannot resist a classic—Blueberry Butermilk Pancakes.
A self-serve juice and mimosa bar is the perfect brunch refreshment!
What you’ll need:
2. Labels for juices
3. Ice and ice bucket
4. Your favorite juices
5. Fresh fruit for garnish
7. Carafes or vintage milk bottles
Cut up fruit, fill carafes with juice and label accordingly, and pop the champagne! Let your guests serve themselves and enjoy their fruity, bubbly concoctions. Don’t forget to keep the champagne on ice!
Cheers, and Happy Memorial Day!
