Whether you are a brunch beginner or a pro, there is always room to improve and up your hosting game. As a “brunch pro” (a title that I gave myself, but don’t worry I’m totally a professional), I have put together these recipes and ideas to inspire and help you lovely folks and breakfast lovers.

Because breakfast food is the best. (But eating breakfast food with your friends while boozing, is even better.)

If you would like something even fancier, take look at my vegan tea party article for inspiration.


There are a few things that are essential to host a fantastic brunch, that will leave your guests begging for more Sunday get-togethers.

Here’s what you will need:

Unless you are hosting a “super-nature-lover” brunch and foraging berries from a nearby forest, you will need some tableware to serve the yummy drinks and food.

I like to make my parties all impressive and use special party tableware when I have friends over.

My go-to place for the most amazing and aesthetic party accessories is Sugar and Cloth. They have super cute stuff for really cheap prices. (I have ordered like 7 times from them already and my friends are still freaking out over the plates and napkins…)

Sometimes, when no one is looking, I still eat dinner from my mint-gold party plate (Please don’t judge!).

Overall, make sure you have some plates, cocktail glasses, coffee mugs and any other stuff you need to properly serve your drinks and meals.

You can go the extra mile like me and prepare some decorative name holders too.


3. Flowers and Decor

Even if you are not quite the home decor junkie, you can always put a few flowers on the table. It will do the job, just fine.

Instead of making one big arrangement and using it as a centerpiece, make several tinier “bouquets” and put them into smaller vases.

Extra points, if your flowers are fresh cut, as they will provide a really nice scent that will linger around the room.

I have these 5 Colored Petite Cut Glass Bud Vases by Art & Artifact.

They give the room a nice, cheerful, “Spring-y” vibe. I love it.


4. Mimosa

No brunch is complete without mimosa. This orange juice based boozy cocktail is the perfect thing to drink with any breakfast food on a lazy Sunday.

5. Cocktails and Drinks

You might want to include a few alcoholic cocktails besides the mimosa and a few non-alcoholic beverages as well.

6. Vegan “Egg” Dish

The traditional brunch is usually centered around some “epic” egg dish, but we are trying to host a vegan brunch here. Solution: use vegan eggs made from plants!

7. Hearty Savory Breakfast Food

I alwast felt like even though brunch is supposed to be the mixture of BReakfast and lUNCH, truly, it is a breakfast party (at lunch time). So, here you’ll find insanely delicious savory breakfast food recipes that are so filling, they function as lunch too! (Or at least you won’t be hungry until the afternoon tea party. 😉 )

8. Pancakes/Waffles/French Toast

If I could, I would eat pancakes for every breakfast (or waffles/french toast … but really they are just disguised pancakes to me). Too bad, I’m lazy, so it’s never gonna happen. Although, when I’m hosting brunch at our home, I always make sure to welcome our guests with a huge plate of steaming hot pancakes. I throw some berries on them too, for juiciness and good measure.

10. Fruit Salad

End your phenomenal vegan brunch with a healthy dessert, like fruit salad.

(Plus if you have a friend over who’s on a diet, they will be extra grateful for the sugar-free option.)
