Celebrate your friendship!
Are you looking for an occasion to spend lots of time with your friends, to chat, to laugh, to have fun together? Why not invite your besties to a brunch at your place? You are sure to have lots of ideas for such a day with your girls. To help you with planning, we have put together some more things to inspire you.
Sometimes you can add that little extra
A beautifully laid table makes your guests feel welcome. You could use your “best” tableware. But you don’t have any? Then create some. For example, use sugared lettering to write greetings on the edges of plates or to attach small decorative elements such as colourful chocolate buttons!
Touches of colour create the right mood – for a girls brunch, preferably in pink! We have DIY instructions for flowery table decorations including matching napkin rings. They make more than just work. Promise!
The welcome drink
With and without a “kick”
The opening to any party is the welcome drink. It doesn’t always have to be alcoholic to set the mood. A simple creation can show how much you look forward to spending time with your guests.
How about a well-chilled orange juice, fresh fruit on a cocktail skewer and a sprig of fresh rosemary? It will bring a sparkle to either mineral water or prosecco. Why not create your own drink for your gang? A Pink Power Cat, for example?
The brunch buffet
If it tastes good, do it
Cold, warm, sweet and savoury. You have a wide choice so deciding won’t be easy but having a motto can help, for example “cruise” delicacies from your last holiday destination, or a special ingredient, or simply “PINK”! Suitable recipes from the simple to the sophisticated are available in the internet. Check the comments below to avoid the mistakes that others have already made.
Are one of you lactose intolerant? Tiramisu using lactose-free quark will be loved by everyone!
A lasting memory
Make a guestbook for your besties to leave their messages. It is an appreciation both of your get-together and to the hostess. Such a book can be used again at other get-togethers. And with an instant camera you can capture and add photographic memories.
An alternative is a simple sheet of paper for each of you to leave a pout and a signed message. Framing it then turns it into a decorative souvenir.
The “Goody Bags”
A little piece of joy to take home
Did you enjoy those little goody-bags from children’s birthday in bygone times? Each little item would bring back memories of a great party.
Why not pack together some goody bags for your girls? How about a fragrant hand cream, quirky handkerchiefs or a special lipstick that you can all wear at the next party? When saying goodbye, everyone gets a wrapped souvenir photo and may take a flower with them from the table decoration.
