Who says you can’t fiesta in the morning?! Today I am sharing with you a Brunch Fiesta. Combining two of my favorite things that bring people together: brunch and mexican food! I love thinking outside the box when it comes to hosting. Hosting doesn’t always have to be a dinner or cookout. Sometimes it is fun to mix it up a little!
I created this colorful tablescape using these fun napkins, galvanized metal chargers, plates and a variety of glasses. The great thing about using a variety of colors is you don’t have to worry about things matching perfectly. The green yogurt parfait glass is actually a votive candle holder from Michaels. Love when I purchase multi-use items. (High-five to myself.)
When you are on a budget, you want your dollar to go as far as possible. While flowers are a beautiful centerpiece, that’s their only purpose. I love using food for my centerpieces. It looks pretty and I can eat it. How’s that for repurposed?! For this specific centerpiece, I used a combination of limes and oranges in a large vase. And sticking with the mexican theme, 2 bunches of cilantro in a vase for some greenery. (P.S. Cilantro is an affordable centerpiece as well, only $0.99 for 2 bunches!)
For the main course, I served Breakfast Burritos. You can serve these two ways: pre-made or buffet style. For buffet style, I recommend setting up a designated burrito making station where guests fill and make their own burritos. Your ingredient options can be endless! Eggs, bacon, sausage, peppers, onion, salsa, guacamole, avocado, green onion, cilantro, greek yogurt, black olives, etc. Buffet option would definitely be easier if you have several guests. My Spicy Breakfast Burrito recipe can be found here.
For a side dish I served bacon and for my brunch dessert a Mango Yogurt Parfait. Every brunch needs a sweet treat to finish with!
And let’s not forget about the most important part of a fiesta, the margaritas! For brunch, I recommend serving this oh so amazing Margarita Mimosa! Seriously, this drink alone is worth hosting a brunch fiesta! Cheers!
