Spring Birthday Brunch

As my daughter's 10th birthday is approaching, it's time to start party planning. A few years ago, she wanted to do a birthday brunch for her party (totally my daughter - brunch is THE BEST!) This year, we're doing it again!

She wants a Woodland theme this year so I'll do a post on that when we have the actual party in a few weeks. For now though, I want to share what we did a few years ago. Since her birthday is on the first day of Spring, we went with a fresh and bright butterfly theme.

We'll start with the most important part. Coffee. I have quite a few coffee makers so I set those up on the counter and people were able to make their own coffee, tea and cappuccinos.

Then there was the DIY "bread bar". I set up my hutch with a toaster and a variety of different breads like toast, english muffins, bagels, and mini croissants with an assortment of spreads like peanut butter, jam, butter and cream cheese.

At the end of the "bread bar" I had a yogurt and granola "grab-and-go" setup.

Then the main counter had all of the other foods and drinks. We had a baked chocolate oatmeal dish, breakfast sausages, egg and veggie muffins, a french toast bake, deviled eggs, ham, hardboiled eggs, veggies and dip, and fruit. The only thing missing (and I don't know HOW), were donuts. You better believe those will be a part of the festivities this year.

We have a large family so we usually set everything up as a buffet and it works out well. I'm really looking forward to our next celebration.
