I’m a big fan of brunch, especially for entertaining and holidays. It is much more laid back than hosting a dinner party and you and your guest don’t have to get up early to mix and mingle. Brunch is always a good idea. And a Waffle Bar Brunch is a brilliant idea!
Don’t fret with waiting at crowded restaurants or having to cook this Mother’s Day, host a Waffle Bar Brunch to celebrate the women in your life. All I wanted for Mother’s Day this year is to sleep in and to not have to cook. But, I still wanted to spend time with my family celebrating the moms of the group so I decided to host a brunch at our house. This has got to be one of the easiest parties you will ever throw.
I love the concept of any “bar” party where guest get to serve themselves. It takes the pressure off of you as the hostess and lets guest choose what flavors and ingredients they like best. A waffle bar is perfect because you can set out a few waffle makers and the pre-mixed batter and let guest make their own waffles. Of you can even buy store bought Belgium waffles.
Offer a variety of toppings and let your guest go crazy. Here are the toppings that we included at our waffle bar:
- whipped cream
- mini chocolate chips
- coconut flakes
- fresh fruit
- maple syrup
- strawberry jam
- almond butter
- fresh mint
Everybody can dig in to their favorite flavors and even mix it up and try something different when they go back for seconds. Personally, I love whipped cream and fresh strawberries. What would be your perfect flavor combination?
Set the bar with pretty plates, napkins and utensils so guest can help themselves. I used the vibrant new Spritz Spring Pop party line from Target. I just love the pop of color and thought it was just the right amount of pizzazz for our laid back brunch. I served milk and juice in adorable mini milk jugs (they are my favorite new party obsession) with colorful paper straws.
A Waffle Bar Brunch is a great way to host and entertain, it’s perfect for Mother’s Day, baby showers, a girls weekend or simply just because…remember brunch is always a good idea!
