Every year I host a small and intimate Christmas brunch for my girlfriends, and it occurred to me that given the current situation with Covid- 19, it would actually be the perfect post to share as it would work well as a setup for small social bubbles.
Many of us are choosing to stay home more. Many of us have no choice but to stay home more. Our circles are smaller but now more important than ever to us.
So why not make the best of it and make the little moments we do have count!
The key to hosting a brunch is to keep it simple. You can lay the table the night before and if you keep the food simple there should be no reason to slave away in the kitchen cooking complicated breakfasts. After all, your friends want to spend time with you!
Creating a platter of fresh croissants (heat them in the oven for 10 minutes first to make your home smell divine) Bread's, pastries with lovely jams, and the best butter on the side is a sure-fire hit. Bowls of fruit cut into pretty shapes always go down a treat and, as it's a Christmas brunch, I always add in some stolen and mini mince pies. Muesli and dried fruits are also great... if you really want to show off, you can make your own the night before. Decant fresh orange juice and water into some pretty carafes and make a pot of tea and carafe of coffee and all toy than have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the afternoon in your bubble
Finally, don't forget the champagne... this is brunch after all
