Follow these easy ideas to help you set your beautiful brunch table without feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

PLAN A MORE CASUAL DECOR - Weekend brunch is all about relaxing and enjoying food with your favourite bunch of people. The more comfortable and at-home your guests will feel, the better your get together will be. Don't set a formal or fine dining table; instead, let your friends serve themselves from a buffet around. Nothing could be better if you have a happy outdoor space. Move your brunch table to the garden and dress your table for an outdoor brunch party.

DRESS UP YOUR TABLE - Your dining table is the foremost element of your brunch party. A pretty table setting doesn't really mean you need to have finest table runners or expensive china. A simple setting with few accent elements and obviously, with delicious food, is good enough to impress your guest and family.

  • Pops of colours: Most of the nicest brunch tables are the most understated. Some nice napkins, a pretty table runner and some pop of colours on mugs and vases are good enough to brighten the overall table. Whether it's the colourful mugs or the fresh flowers, a little of colour will add the brightness and cheer to your table without overwhelming the overall appeal.

  • Break up the flower arrangement: A fresh bouquet of flowers right in the centre of the table certainly looks quite stately, but any big arrangement of flowers is too much for a brunch spread and it also restricts you to see the person you're sitting across. Instead, to get a more delicate and elegant look, break up the flower arrangement into smaller bouquets, scattered around the table.

  • Get ready with your serving pieces and accoutrements: if you want to enjoy the meal as much as your guests, then make sure you've got all the serving spoons and serving bowls ready. Always use a variety of serving bowls for one dish so that your guests can easily pass it around the table.

FOOD & DRINKS - Ah, we have finally arrived in the food and drinks portion of the brunch! :D Have you ever noticed the magic that happens when your guests meet bottomless mimosas? Brunch is the new happy hour, and drinks are what kick-start your brunch, so spend some extra time planning an assortment of beverages like mimosas, fresh citrus juices and smoothies.
