Brunch Wedding Receptions!

I love breakfast. Really bad-for-you breakfast like French toast, pastries and pancakes drenched in syrup. Done well, breakfast is quite a decadent meal.

And I love breakfast for wedding receptions. We've done brunch weddings or even midnight breakfast spreads. Our own Sara served fabulous breakfast foods during the cocktail hour of her evening wedding and it was a massive hit.

You can get really creative with traditional breakfast food and make them passable for a more elegant presentation like mini pancakes, tiny frittatas and layered yogurt parfaits.  This stylish omelette bar from 100 Layer Cake is divine!

You can also have some fun with drinks--make-your-own Bloody Mary stations and Mimosas with various garnishes come to mind.

All this talk of breakfast is making me hungry!  Cheers!
