Brunch — the popular breakfast/lunch hybrid — is meant to be shared with family and friends. But without a little proper planning, hosting what is arguably the best meal of the day can be fraught with panic and peril.
Following are 15 tips for serving up an easy, enjoyable and stress-free midmorning meal.
1. Get the invites right
Inviting more guests generally means more work, so keep your list to a manageable number.
Send out invites about 10 days in advance and include an RSVP date so friends and family members have time to check their schedules, and you have an accurate head count.
And don’t forget to send out email or text reminders a few days beforehand.
