How to Host A Beautiful Brunch :: Cupcake Vineyards

cupcake_vineyards_0322

It is a beautiful time of year to host a brunch outdoors. The skies are blue, birds are chirping and flowers are blooming.  We loved styling this outdoor brunch featuring Cupcake Vineyards wines! White wines are perfect to serve at brunch and I especially love the sweet and sparkling variations like Moscato D'Asti and Prosecco, especially for celebrations! This neutral color scheme and style can really be used for so many occasions, including birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers or anniversary parties.

Start by deciding on a location for your brunch. You can use outdoor furniture, or bring indoor furniture outside for the event, like we did. Use neutral placemats, chargers, napkins and dinnerware when setting the table. Don't forget the wine glasses! A large vase filled gorgeous white flowers makes a perfect centerpiece for your table. Hang white lanterns or tissue pom poms to add a festive touch to the party setup. White tissue paper flowers are easy to make and can be added to the chairs to dress them up.

Create little finishing touches like adding a name tag tied with jute twine to each place setting. Not only does this add a pretty element to the table, but is also functional in directing your guests where to sit.

Open a few bottles of wine as guests start arriving so you can greet them with a glass of their favorite type. Cupcake Vineyards Angel Food is a favorite among my friends.

Create a menu using our printable menu design so that your guests know what to look forward to. Light appetizers, fresh salads and desserts are great choices for brunch. You can find a few of the recipes here.
