Grind x Our Place: The Breakfast Party Hosting Guide.
Less booze, more coffee, and you can wear your pyjamas. The new dinner party is the Breakfast Party, where the most important meal of the day is finally given the respect it deserves. Think delicious pairings of out-of-the-box dishes and speciality coffee drinks, best shared with the ones you love.
Here's a few entertaining tips for your Breakfast Party:
- Keep things to a respectable time of day.
Maybe you're an early riser (honestly, good for you), but please don't subject your guests to an 8am Breakfast Party. Nobody wants to be wiping sleep from their eyes as they struggle to digest a breakfast lasagna. We'd suggest kicking things off around 10!
- Get your priorities right.
Before you start writing down the Ingredients for a twice-baked, three-tier, triple-chocolate pancake tower, It's important to prioritise. There's a lot to think about when it comes to creating the perfect Breakfast Party, so create a checklist In order of priority - this is a sure-fire way to make sure everything runs smoothly.
- Pick your playlist.
You've pressed play on the classic feel-good morning mix...it'll do the job, but we know you can do better than that. Spend some time putting together your own playlist and you'll set the vibe for the shindig. Or just play Beyonce's entire back catalogue-we're not mad at that.
- The guestlist.
Hosting, whether a Breakfast Party, dinner or having a friend over for a coffee, is really just about spending time with the people you love. So there's no guestlist rules–simply choose the number that works for you and your space.
- The food.
Whether you're serving a table spread of the Full English fry-up, a shakshuka to share, and fresh squeezed juice, or making your guests flip over your pancake stacks–all home cooking practices are valid. However you choose to Breakfast Party Is up to you.
- Have fun.
No, seriously...it's easy to forget to enjoy yourself when you're hosting! It's your Breakfast Party and you'll dance around in your PJs if you want to. At its heart, it's a chance to bring together the people you love over a delicious dish or four. Nothing more complicated than that.
