The sun is out, the pool cover is off and the kids are begging to go to the beach every chance they get (which is every other second considering they’re not in school). Summer is here — and yay to that! Winter was brutal and Spring was short AF but who cares when summer days are oh so beautiful! You’ve probably been attending one summer BBQ after another and want to throw your own little shindig. Summer gatherings are a great time to meet up with friends who were hibernating during the winter, eat some food, drink some booze and just enjoy the sunshine. Brunch is pretty much the best time of the day — wouldn’t you agree? So why not theme your gathering around that? We’ve gathered some great summer brunch ideas to give you some food for thought for potential decor, food and the all important summer brunch party invites (which you can send without ever leaving the poolside).
Look through and pick the ideas that speak to you and leave those that don’t. And remember — these are just ideas, so let your creative self get inspired to turn your own brunch gathering into something magical. No need to copy everything directly (don’t feel like you must match things identically) unless of course you’d like to. Let these summer brunch ideas inspire you to do– you.
