If you are hosting or attending book club this month and are looking for some delicious brunch party ideas, this post has you covered. From the beverage and appetizer to the main course, sides and desserts, there’s lots of great menu ideas to serve at this month’s book club.
Book clubs are so much fun. Do you participate in one?
I’ve been in one for years, although I must admit, I don’t always get a chance to read the book.
Luckily, my book club is pretty low maintenance where you can join even if you didn’t read it. Which is great because there is nothing quite like the food, beverages, and fun with my friends!
We mix it up with both brunches and dinner parties. In fact, I was just at book club this week!
So when my supper club decided to choose a book club brunch theme, I was all about it. The other day, we shared some entertaining and table decor ideas, and today, we are sharing a beautiful brunch menu.
Wait until you try these delicious and easy recipes!

About My Supper Club
We’ve been having a great time with our supper club and this month we are getting together for book club with an amazing burnch.
If you are coming from Rachel’s at the Ponds Farmhouse, welcome to my home. I’m thrilled you dropped by.
In case you are new here, I’m Stacy, a self-taught master gardener who lives and gardens in northern New Jersey, zone 6a.
I’ve been gardening for over 20 years and enjoy helping beginner gardeners find their inner green thumb, as well as discover a love for all things plants and flowers. I love to bring the outdoors inside my home too.
I hope you enjoy visiting my home today and hope you come back so we can grow stuff and create beautiful spaces together.
What Do You Serve at a Brunch Party?
I love brunch parties because they are a little more flexible than hosting a lunch.
You’ll typically find traditional breakfast foods like eggs, waffles, crepes, bacon, scrambled eggs, waffles, fruit and a variety of pastries like croissants, muffins, donuts, cinnnamon buns, etc. And of course, you’ll need to serve coffee, teas, water and some fresh lemonade.
But you’ll also see quiches, tuna or chicken salad sandwiches, caprese salad, and other types of fresh salads with ingredients like tomatoes, onions and cucumbers.
How Do You Host a Brunch Party?
I host lots of different parties and I have to say, that brunches are the easiest.
They are a little more casual and you can serve everything buffet style.
Here are 9 simple tips for hosting a brunch.
- Plan your menu before going shopping.
- Look for fresh baked items and pastries at the market so it’s less work for you!
- Choose a theme and decorate the night before.
- Make dishes that are quick and easy to pull together.
- Serve buffet style.
- Ask guests to bring a dish if you want to lighten your load.
- Decorate with things you already have.
- Break out the good stuff! It’s more budget-friendly and you get to use your special dishes.
- Food shop the day before so you aren’t stressing the morning of the brunch.
How Many Dishes Do You Serve at a Brunch Party?
How many dishes you serve at a brunch party are relative to how many people are coming and what you want to serve.
I lean towards more food and enjoy the leftovers after.
