When it comes to entertaining over the holiday season there are so many ways to create a spread that will not break the bank, yet leave your guests impressed. With a little pre-planning and I like to #ChooseSmart by Warehouse Store shopping you can create a brunch, luncheon or even breakfast dinner spread that is oh, so yummy and has holiday flair to it! Just entertaining our family can be costly as we are such a big group which has made me much more budget-conscious without sacrificing style or taste!

My goal was to keep this gathering simple and spend under $50 yet, not sacrifice style! I know, you are saying to yourself no way! But, really it can be done. The meal plan is simple; a broccoli mushroom quiche, a bagel spread, fresh fruit, and granola with vanilla yogurt. The drinks; are mimosas, cranberry raspberry juice, and coffee. When my family gathers we create meal plans just like this only a little less festive for everyday gatherings.

What I love about making quiche is that you can whip them up ahead of time if you like, and serve them warm or at room temperature. The recipe is easily adaptable, if you prefer you can always substitute spinach or a mixed vegetable mix instead of the broccoli cuts. Pick your favorite cheese and substitute it if these aren’t your favorites!

Tips for setting up your table for entertaining

You can do a lot of the prep in advance by preparing and covering in the refrigerator until needed. Nobody likes scrambling at the last minute, finding out they forgot something or even feeling rushed by doing these simple things you’ll be able to spend quality time with your guests.

  • Pre-slice your bagels arranging them on a platter *First Street bagels come pre-sliced! 
  • Put your whipped cream cheese in a pretty dish with a spreader
  • In pretty cups or bowls add your vanilla yogurt topped with granola, place them on a tray for serving, or for a casual brunch create a yogurt bar area
  • Set up a coffee bar area with sugar, creamer (brew up a fresh pot just as guests arrive or use your one cup brewers)
  • Have all your utensils, cups, and plates set out in advance (you can purchase all these at Smart & Final along with your groceries!)
  • Add touches such as flowers, ornaments in a vase, decorative cloche, twigs, or branches, and don’t forget candles
  • Candles are an easy way to make your food area look festive
  • Cloth napkins that are reusable can add a touch of elegance 
  • Cover your table or island with a pretty tablecloth

Pre-chill your champagne or sparkling wine. Mix up a batch of Mimosas. (mimosa recipe is 1/2 champagne to 1/2 orange juice) Easy! I love entertaining by setting up a self-serve you can mingle, and guests enjoy getting their favorite foods. You can create a style that’s not formal. For me, entertaining is all about your guests having a good time and feeling comfortable.
