One of my long time dreams is breakfast parties with just the girls after the kids are at school. Sounds like bliss, doesn’t it? I think it’s something I long for, girl time.
That uninterrupted adult time to just unwind with my girlfriends before getting back to the daily grind. As I thought this through, I started to think up a few easy breakfast ideas that would be perfect for breakfast with the girls.
How to host a breakfast party or brunch?
My sister and I have actually been talking about doing a party like this for months now, so I am ready to make this a regular occurrence.
I am thinking possibly once a month, having all my mom friends over who can come just after the kids go to school to catch up and refresh. I think it’s healthy for us as moms to get that time.
We have to be 100% ready for our family ALL the time and in order to do that, we also have to have a little time to ourselves too.
As I was shopping at Walmart, I spotted the new Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls. They come in a variety of flavors like Apple Cinnamon, Pecan Swirl, and Cherry.
As I was looking over those, I also noticed chocolate filled crescent rolls. They are so affordable that I ended up picking up one of each flavor.
Next, I wanted to be sure my table covered all types of foods, so I added sausage biscuits, fruit and fruit dip, bagels, and eggs. I originally planned to make an egg and spinach bowl, then I decided to place the eggs on the table as an option.
Then, if a guest wanted eggs or an omelet, I had the griddle heated up in the kitchen to make them one. I decided this option was better since that would keep them nice and warm for guests.
How to make a Berry Orange Smoothie?
Along with my array of food, I also wanted a good variety of drinks. I was able to use a $1 off coupon that is located at Walmart to get the Florida Orange Juice.
The coupon is on a tear pad near the orange juice while supplies last. I decided to make a Berry Orange Smoothie with the orange juice.
I added blueberries, raspberries, Greek vanilla yogurt, and orange juice to the blender with ice and mixed it up to make a delicious smoothie.
This smoothie hit the spot. I even found these adorable glasses to serve them in.
Of course, I also served coffee because that is just necessary with breakfast especially on cold days! I was pretty excited to even have my little cow creamer container make an appearance too.
I wanted this party to be light and fresh colors. I decided the main decor pieces would be fresh flowers that I arranged in my old fashioned milk bottles.
How beautiful are these? Some of my favorite party items are old antiques that we have around our home or that I find on my thrift excursions.
Our party is all set and ready to go, now it’s time to make this a regular monthly occurrence because it is refreshing and wonderful to interact with friends especially over delicious food!
