For this fall themed Wedding Brunch she had everything down to a formula, from the overabundance of rich autumn colored serving platters and pumpkin decorations to the perfectly ironed antique linen napkins. It was a beautiful spread of the autumn season draped across our dinning room table. Yet, the brunch menu had to be the most hassle-free.
We decided on a sasauge and cheese Breakfast Casserole, because it is easy to assemble and feeds a lot of guests. This simple casserole is one of my all-time favorite entertaining recipes. We always have great reviews. Who doesn’t love anything with bread, melted cheese, sausage, and eggs?
Bite-size muffins were perfect for nibbling on while talking about the Kristen’s big day. We made the classic Blueberry Muffins and crumbly Cheese Muffins. My mother grabbed a Baked Cheese Grits recipe from one of her Southern Living cookbooks.
We assembled a light and fresh fruit platter featuring grapes, cantaloupe, strawberries, and honeydew. This is always an easy favorite and much cheaper if you go the do-it-yourself route. The girls washed it all down with a simple yet tasty mimosa punch, concocted by combining champagne, orange juice, and a splash of cherry grenadine to add a little color.
Yes, it was a nice, relaxing brunch with the wedding party before everyone scattered to get ready. It was the calm before the storm. I hope to host a few more in the future and around the holidays since I’ve experienced how easy they can be.
