After discussing some suggestions I got from my previous post with my fiance, we decided to ditch the idea of a BBQ reception to save more money and go with brunch instead.
Here’s our menu:
Cheese and ham croissant – Potato crusted quiche florentine – Pesto pinwheels – Pretzel wrapped sausage bites – Chocolate croissant – Fruit tarts
Biscuits – Sausage gravy – Fried chicken – Mini corn muffin
Peach, mozzarella, basil salad – Watermelon, blackberry, and grapefruit salad
Pancake with toppings (berries, fresh whipped cream, caramelized banana, cream cheese, cinnamon sugar, lemon cream, chocolate chip)
Raspberry rose fizz – Mojitos – Iced lemon tea – Iced coffee – Water
My fiance thinks that we should add a pasta station with maybe two pasta options, but I think this menu is enough. What do you bees think?
Thank you!!! 😘

Mmm, sounds delish. I would go with one more thing though. Something more geared towards lunch. Pasta, mini sandwhiches, something like that.

That menu sounds delicious, but it is slightly lacking on the lunch side of brunch. Maybe instead of adding an entire new station you could expand the salad station to have more lunch-y salads like a pasta salad, chicken salad, or green salad.

Sounds delish! As a Canadian, I gotta make sure you’re going to have maple syrup and I’m noticing a distinct lack of bacon. 😛

Yum! How about adding a veg pasta salad to the salad options instead of FI’s pasta station?

Maple syrup!!! How could we skipped that? This is really weird, but we don’t reaaly like bacon. I know, I know. That was actually one of the first things that we found out about each other and kind of made us inseparable ever since. 😆

I feel there should be some more meat, but not pasta – it doesn’t mesh well with the rest. Maybe mini BLTs (or SausageLTs for you weirdos who aren’t into bacon). If you’re having maple syrup, be sure to have local honey too! (for us weirdos who think maple syrup is gross). Also I’d suggest some fruit that is not in ‘salad’ form. I know many people, including myself, who think once the fruit flavors have melded, none of them taste good anymore. Mmmm pickiness is fun!
btw, brunch reception sounds awesome!

This looks so tasty! the one thing I would change would be the chesse and ham croissant, instead I would do carved ham at the southern station with maple syrup, then have biscuits and croissants. I would also add some chicken salad/cucumber sandwich squares

Oh my…good menu!! I agree with pp’s that think it needs something more lunch like to round out the breakfast items, hence making it brunch. 🙂 Pasta may be a bit too heavy for brunch. What about…finger sandwiches like you’d see at high tea (canapés or roulades)? Sliders but using creative ingredients that are more brunch like instead of beef?

Thanks bees, we will think of another lunchy menu.
ANOTHER QUESTION, do you think, we need more dessert, maybe set up a dessert bar?

I was also going to say that I feel it is missing a meat. I typically expect either a carved ham or turkey or roast beef/prime rib at a brunch – not all of them, but at least one of those options. I am a huge brunch fan, and if there was no meat, I would be very sad haha
