Glitter and gold brunch buffet setup

The Glitter & Metallic Gold Brunch Buffet Table Decorating Kit includes cute themed signs and banners. I strung the “let’s brunch” banner in front of the black and gold dot background. Then I covered the table with a coordinating gold tablecloth and got to work on brunch.

Fruit platter with raspberries, blackberries, grapes, and kiwi

After staying up late watching the ball drop, you don’t want to do much work for a New Year’s Day brunch, so take lots of help from the store and pre-prepare what you can. You can put together a colorful and delicious fruit platter the day before. Just wrap it in food safe plastic wrap in the refrigerator overnight.

Muffins and bread on a platter

Set up some store-bought baked goods on a cake stand. This adds some height to your brunch display, and who doesn’t love some tasty carbs in the morning.

Champagne with holiday tags on a buffet table

Finally, put out an assortment of sparkling wine and fruit juices. Your guests can pour their own mimosas with their favorite combinations of bubbly and juice.
