Is there anything better than brunch? A successful brunch event should have the perfect balance of both breakfast and lunch options. And let’s not forget the mimosas! At Galuppi’s, we take the stress out of hosting brunch with a selection of your favorite meals and cocktail pairings.
Here, our event experts provide you with the ultimate guide to hosting a fantastic brunch!
A Brief Brunch History
From small towns to big cities, brunch seems to be everywhere these days. That hasn’t always been the case. Before it was about expertly curating your food for social media, it served a more practical use.
The word “brunch” first appeared in an article in Hunter’s Weekly, when Guy Beringer introduced the idea of a late Sunday breakfast. He suggested that a late, lighter meal would put people in good tempers for the rest of the week. Nearly 130 years later, his words still ring true.
1960s And 1970s
The free-spirited times called for a more “anything goes” approach to brunch. While many of the traditional staples still saw an appearance, extravagant cocktails, and indulgent fondue became more popular.
Showing no signs of stopping, brunch has become more of a pastime in recent years. While many places still offer a more traditional fare, others have seen it as an opportunity to amp up their game. Think Bloody Mary’s piled high, lobster Benedict, and infused everything. Over 100 years later, brunch remains a social staple.
How To Host The Perfect Brunch
Whether you’re planning a low-key brunch at home or an extravagant brunch at your favorite restaurant in Pompano Beach, proper planning is critical. Here, the event planners at Galuppi’s share some key tips for hosting the perfect brunch event:
Make Your Guest List (And Check It Twice)
While texting your friends to join you for a quick brunch is usually enough, hosting an event requires a guest list. A complete guest list makes sure you don’t order too much or too little food. Aside from helping you to stay on budget, a guest list also helps you decide on a seating arrangement. Sending out physical invitations and RSVP responses also provides a creative and thoughtful approach.
Plan Your Menu
Socializing and food are equal partners when it comes to brunch. It is critical to offer a wide array of food. Thankfully, brunch options are endless! At Galuppi’s, we pride ourselves on offering Pompano’s best brunch. Not only do we offer an outstanding Sunday brunch buffet, but we also offer a full breakfast menu throughout the week. Try some of our favorites, including Caprese Benedict, Shrimp -n- Grits, or Build Your Own Omelet.
Keep The Drinks Flowing
Brunch cocktails are key to a successful event, but it is also critical to offer non-alcoholic beverages as well! Alongside a full bar, Galuppi’s offers a Bottomless Drink Special that includes Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, and bellinis! Our non-alcoholic options include freshly squeezed juices, coffee, tea, and sodas.
