1) Decide on a Theme

When planning a breakfast party, the first thing you need to do is decide on a theme. This will give your party some structure and help you plan out what dishes you'll make. Some of our favorite themes include:

-Breakfast for Dinner: This is always a fun theme, especially if you're looking for an excuse to have pancakes and bacon for dinner!

-Bagels and Lox: This classic breakfast combo of bagels is perfect for a brunch party.

-Mexican Breakfast: Tortillas, refried beans, eggs, and salsa make for a delicious (and easy) Mexican breakfast feast!

-Southern Comfort: biscuits and gravy, fried chicken, waffles, and mimosas are a must for this theme!

2) Make a Menu

Once you've decided on a theme, it's time to start planning your menu. If you're not sure what dishes to make, we recommend looking up recipes online or in cookbooks. Once you have a few ideas, sit down with your friends and decide on a final menu. Remember to take into account any dietary restrictions your guests may have!

Some of our favorite breakfast dishes include:




-Scrambled eggs



-Fruit salad

-Yogurt parfait

-Bagels with cream cheese 

Don't forget about drinks! Coffee, tea, orange juice, and mimosas are all great choices.

3) Set a Budget

Now that you have your menu planned out, it's time to set a budget. Breakfast parties can be as simple or extravagant as you want them to be, so it's essential to know how much you're willing to spend. Once you've set a budget, start looking for deals on food and supplies. You'd be surprised how much money you can save by planning!

If you're looking to save even more money, we recommend asking your guests to bring something to share. Dishes like fruit salad and yogurt parfaits are always appreciated and help lighten the host's load (and cost)!

4) Choose a Date and Time

Now that you've planned out the details of your breakfast party, it's time to choose a date and time! We recommend choosing a day when everyone is free, and there's no rush to get anywhere afterward. Saturday mornings are always a good choice, but Sunday mornings work well. As for time, we recommend starting around 11 am so everyone has time to sleep in and enjoy a leisurely morning.

In conclusion,  planning a breakfast party with your friends is a great way to start your day! By following these tips, you'll be sure to have a delicious and fun time!
