Fear no more, because we are here to give you a list of food and drink to help you make the perfect brunch for your upcoming special occasion!
What is Brunch?
Before we give you a list of breakfast items, let's first answer the question: what is brunch? Brunch is a late-morning meal that typically can be eaten in place of breakfast and lunch. Most of the time, people enjoy brunch on the weekends when they want to enjoy sleeping in but still get to enjoy breakfast food. Since it's eaten a bit later in the morning, this means that brunch can technically be breakfast foods or lunch foods. It all depends on what you're in the mood for! If you want breakfast food, go for it! If you're looking for something more savory, there are plenty of options for that as well. In other words, brunch is the perfect way to satisfy all your guests at a bachelorette party or bridal shower!

Whether it's scrambled, poached, over easy, or made into an omelet or frittata, eggs are always a great option for breakfast. They're protein-packed and filling, which is perfect for guests who might be drinking alcohol with their plate or later on in the day.
Another breakfast classic! Bacon pairs well with just about anything, so it's no surprise that it's often served at brunch. Thick cut or thin cut, there's no wrong way to enjoy bacon.
Pancakes are a breakfast food that can be enjoyed sweet or savory. If you want to keep it classic, top your pancakes with butter and syrup. For something a little different, try adding fruit, chocolate chips, or even bacon!
Who doesn't love French toast? It's like pancakes but even better because it's soaked in eggs and milk, giving it a custardy texture that is absolutely delicious. Serve it with some fresh fruit and syrup or dust it with powdered sugar - either way, your guests will love it.
