Is there anything I DON’T love about brunch? I think it’s a fantastic idea.

A nice, hearty pumpkin or potato/leek soup might be both easy to make, reasonably priced, and a delicious savory addition to your brunch. This is my favorite recipe along those lines (it’s cauliflower though): http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2006/09/the-fragile-cooking-ego/

Serving one cocktail or alcoholic drink might bring up the cost of your brunch significantly, so I wouldn’t say it’s necessary. If you do want to, though, I would consider a mulled cider punch or mulled wine – something warm and toasty for the winter. Obviously, spiked hot chocolate works perfectly.

Since it’s in winter, you could make candy garlands as decorations, in combination with little twinkle lights. 

And how about invitations – something like this but in GIF form with the bacon “moving” like a scarf in the wind?

 

I think with the budget you’re talking about, no one will expect or prioritize wedding favors, but if you really want to, some homemade marshmallows with a bit of cocoa powder would be a great favor.

French toast is yummy, warm, and easy to make (even for lots of people!). You can bring seasonal flavors into it as well. I went to a winter brunch and they had apple stuffed french toast – it was phenominal! 

 

Good luck – it sounds like a wonderful idea!!

I love the idea of a wintery brunch! You could have hot chocolate, hashbrown casserole, french toast bake, ham steaks, a fruit salad, spinach quiche, gourmet jam/preserves (Sqirl has an amazing selection) with brioche…there are so many wonderful options with breakfast!

I’m interested to hear what you come up with! Good luck!

I agree with the stuffed french toast idea!! It’s my favorite breakfast food! You could maybe do a hot chocolate/apple cider/coffee bar?
