Why not make your food and supplies double as decorative pieces? These brunch decorations will transform your yummy food and supplies into practical décor that will surely add a little something to your party.
Brunch Decoration Tips to Make Your Food and Supplies Decorative
1. Dressed Up Dessert
Your dessert station is a terrific opportunity to turn your edibles into part of your décor. You can find all kinds of stands for cookies and cakes, from cute and casual to ornate and formal. There are also many styles of cupcake stands that are perfect for displaying your beautiful cupcakes and making them more accessible. The tiers eliminate the mess of trying to reach for a specific cupcake stuck in the center.
2. Clever Menus
Make your menus more practical than they already are by printing them onto your napkins! All you need is some iron-on transfer paper. Print your brunch menus onto the paper then transfer the menus onto your cloth napkins using an iron. This is an easy way to eliminate the stress of deciding what paper you should use to display your menu nicely and fit the theme of your event or where to display them.
3. Lovely Labels
Every brunch needs labels so that guests can tell what food is on which plate and what drink is in which pitcher, but the labels don’t need to be boring! Tie them into your décor by decorating them with brunch theme stickers or stamps. Give them a fun, festive feel by cutting around the edges with pattern-edged scissors.
You can also print labels on different colored paper, or if you prefer classic white labels, dress them up with whimsical label stands. Don’t forget, you can have fun with fonts, too!
If you’re looking for exceptionally creative labels, try attaching a braid of embroidery floss to your labels with a bit of stationary sealing wax pressed with a vintage stamp. Chalkboard labels are a great idea if you are expecting to host many more gatherings, and the ability to reuse would come in handy.
4. Artful Eggshells
Make your hard-boiled eggs into an edible, artistic centerpiece by boiling them in colored water until just about done. Remove them from the water and tap them until the shells begin to crack.
Stain the cracks with a few more drops of dye and boil the eggs again until fully hard. Set them out in beautiful glass bowls for your guests to admire and eat. If the idea of eating dye makes you nervous, don’t worry! There are many natural egg dyes to choose from, many of which are free from artificial dyes, vegan, and gluten-free.
Capitalize on the rustic trend by using burlap napkin holders. Tuck a flower into the napkin holder to add a touch of elegance. You could even take it a step further and have a wooden napkin holder custom-made for each of your guests. Imagine their surprise when they arrive to see their name in such a creative place!
6. Decoratively Practical
Make sure you can enjoy your brunch with disposable plates and cups. Make plain tableware decorative with rubber stamps. Even an elegant brunch doesn’t have to mean hours of clean-up. Look for disposable plastic plates and utensils that are designed to look like glassware or china.
Brunch Decorations with Flowers
Liven up your brunch with these creative takes on floral décor. Transform your vases for a twist on your average floral displays or step entirely out of the box with a new kind of flower arrangement. These tips are sure to impress your guests!
7. A Simple Touch
This is an easy way to add a floral touch to your décor. Simply place a single flower onto all of the place settings. Your guests will be pleased with their own personal flower, and your table will look beautiful with the addition of the splashes of color.
8. Recycled Vases
Put your empty coffee cans to good use by turning them into charming flower vases. Paint them in bright colors to help them stand out, or leave them as they are for a modern, organic feel.
9. Go Seasonal
Using seasonal blooms will help lend your brunch an authentic air and may save you some money at the same time. When looking for only in-season flowers, you are more likely to find flowers that are not as obvious as roses.
10. Floral Portrait
Give your vases an exciting spin by decorating them with your favorite photos. You can use personal photos, or you can clip pictures from your favorite magazines. Use a piece of paper as the base and organize all your pictures on top of it. Glue them down and then clip the paper to your vases with clothespins.
11. Caged flowers
Who says flowers need to be displayed in vases? Step out of the box! Display your flowers in vintage birdcages, instead. Fill the cages with whatever flowers you choose. You can go monochrome with all white roses, or go festive with a mix of colors and species. If that seems too messy for you, use a good-quality ribbon to tie the flowers to the bars of the cage, either inside or outside.
With these brunch decoration ideas, you’re on your way to plan a beautiful brunch party!
