Sunday’s were designed with rest and relaxation in mind, so whether you’re looking to chow down with friends to recap your weekend, enjoy your book club, or want to help our your favorite charity, we’ve got three ways to throw a fun (and delicious) Sunday Brunch that’s anything but stressful!

The South Rises Up! Using a bit of southern hospitality, show your guests what it’s like to eat a hearty, Southern breakfast! Turn up the country music and don’t forget to include these Southern essentials:

•    Scrambled Eggs (don’t forget the Ketchup!)
•    Hash Browns
•    Grits
•    Sausage
•    Gravy
•    Cornbread
•    Watermelon
•    To sip: Sweet Tea, Lemonade or Fruit Punch
•    If you’re looking for a drink with a kick, try Mint Juleps with a little Bourbon

Decorate your house with fresh Hibiscus and Magnolia flowers, use white eyelet tablecloths, and if you’re willing, serve on your best china. For a more authentic feel, have everyone dress up in their Sunday best, ladies don’t forget your pearls! Men can wear top hats and bring their canes. It is sure to be a Southern affair to remember, y’all!

Feel like a kid again!
Who says adults don’t have a sweet tooth? Make a sundae buffet but instead of ice cream, substitute pancakes and French toast!  Go back to your roots and have your guests buy their favorite childhood toy to bring to the brunch. Then add these sweet-tooth favorites for your personal Candy Land:

•    Chocolate Chips
•    Peanut Butter Chips
•    Blueberries
•    Strawberries
•    Chocolate Syrup
•    Whipped Cream
•    Rainbow Sprinkles
•    Maraschino Cherries
•    Beverage: Chocolate, Strawberry or Regular Milk

Make Mickey Mouse pancakes or use cookie cutters to make your French Toast fun! Then, turn on the cartoons on the TV in background, reminisce and enjoy! Once you and your guests are done making a mess (and have recovered from your sugar buzz), take a group trip to an orphanage or Boys and Girls Club and pass out all the toys. You’re bound to feel better after all that sugar!

Keep it fresh!
Have a healthy Make-Your-Own Omelet Station. Grab a variety of ingredients so your guests can have the omelet of her dreams! These ingredients are sure to give your stomach what it needs:

•    Eggs or Egg Whites
•    Meat: Try lean ham, turkey sausage or salmon
•    Bell Peppers
•    Onions
•    Mushrooms
•    Spinach
•    Asparagus
•    Tomatoes
•    Avocado
•    Cheeses of Choice: Goat Cheese, Cheddar, Pepper Jack and Feta are our faves!
•    Fresh fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, oranges, kiwi, pineapple
•    To drink: Freshly squeezed orange juice or  water with some lemons and limes

You might want to visit your local farmer’s market and pick up fresh organic produce! Decorate the place settings with tranquil colors, like turquoise, lavender and mint green and light a few tea lights to set the mood. Then leave your guests with a relaxing party favor: chamomile bath soaps and a hand-me-down book: the perfect combo for a relaxing bubble bath afterward!
