Spectacular Summer Brunch Ideas
A Sunny, Indoor Gathering
Summer entertaining doesn’t have to mean mingling outdoors, especially if you live somewhere very hot!
Host your next brunch indoors; guests are always looking for activities to do during the summer months so it’s the perfect opportunity to entertain.
An indoor-only brunch where they’ll be treated with air conditioning, thirst-quenching beverages, and freshly prepared food is a great way to beat the summer heat.
To maintain the summer theme and a natural style, bring the outside in. Set the table with bougainvillea bouquets and small cactus succulents. Or, choose whatever is in bloom in your own garden. These lovely flowers also double as beautiful party favors.
No matter where you choose to host your summer brunch, it’s likely to be a hot day.
To make guests comfortable, you’ll want to put a cool twist on what you serve.
Something we’re loving this summer is popsicle/sherbet-chilled cocktails.
It keeps refreshments cooler longer and in a more creative, delicious way.
Having a few different options available like this Sherbet Mimosa or Grapefruit Greyhound melted popsicle allows everyone to have both a snacking or sipping option!

Have your guests gather around a space by the pool to communicate that it’ll be a brunch-turned-pool day.
This sets the tone for the perfect summer brunch and shows them you’d like them to stay for as long as they’d like.
Include bright, colorful outdoor decor, paired with nature-inspired accessories such as wicker saucers and large-leaf placemats along with fresh fruit, cooling refreshments, and light bites.

Since a summer brunch is all about simple bites and fresh food, we love the idea of making it barbecue-inspired. From danishes to pretzel croissants, providing a designated table that guests can pick and choose from creates the perfect brunching atmosphere. Include bites like fresh fruit and pigs in a blanket for the perfect blend of brunch and barbecue classics.
Summer Brunch, Summer Fun
Creating the perfect summer brunch entails attention to detail and attention to fun.
The best part is taking the time to appreciate those closest to us.
Whether that’s through lounging by the pool or hosting a top-notch summer brunch, a welcoming and memorable party is the key to keep your guests coming back year after year.
