I recently stumbled upon what I believe to be such a fun brunch idea! Have you ever noticed new years day isn’t always met with a whole lot of excitement? The fact that we don’t really celebrate on new years day is something I never really considered. More than likely, people are spending it with a hangover anyway. If this is you or even not you, lets change it up! I think this day should be filled with more celebration! New years day should be spent with friends, reflecting on the past year and thinking about what we want to achieve throughout it. And for those feeling hungover, why not nurse that headache over some delicious food, cuddled up on the couch with friends! If this sounds like an exciting idea to you, read on to learn how to throw the perfect boho new years day brunch! 🙂
How to Throw The Perfect
Boho New Years Day Brunch
Let’s start off with the food because that’s what everyone loves most, right? I wanted to keep the spread as cost efficient as possible, while still being really good! I also want to share with you food arrangements that have a bohemian style and a delicious cocktail recipe! Let’s dive into it!
Pink chocolate covered strawberries
Spinach and Turkey Sausage Frittatas
1. The Donuts
To make the glitter donuts, I simply bought a box of glazed donuts and edible glitter. I topped off this arrangement with rock candy in the middle! They look really cute arranged on a cake stand, too!
2. Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I went with a particular color scheme for this brunch, so these strawberries make the perfect addition! To recreate these, simply cover strawberries with chocolate and spray with edible glitter. White pearl sprinkles also look really cute on them too!
4. To Make the Pomegranate Mimosas
1 Pomegranate, juice
1/2 cup Pomegranate seeds
6 sprigs Rosemary
1 bottle of Champagne
How to Decorate Your Spread With Boho Details:
- Add LOTS of greenery. Real or fake, it doesn’t matter! Once you have your table arranged, top it off with an evergreen garland or silver dollar eucalyptus.
- Instead of your typical wine glasses, go for something a little more casual, like mason jars!
- And while we’re on the topic of drinks, put sprigs of rosemary in them to further that boho look.
- Trying arranging your spread of food on a piece of antique furniture. Whether that piece may be an old table, desk or even a dresser! (Bonus, you can store plates or extra napkins in the drawers to easily restock anything running low!)
More Details on the Decor:
I stuck with a pretty simplistic decorating concept. Since this brunch is for new years day, I wanted to only incorporate subtle festive touches. This rose gold balloon banner from Target, was exactly what my spread needed! And for $5, you seriously can’t beat it! My color scheme included shades of pink, rose gold and deep green. To incorporate a little of that new years theme, I thought the addition of disco ball string lights would be perfect! (Don’t they look like something you’d find at Urban Outfitters?) These lights were found in the from dollar section of Target as well, for $5!
Different accents like a letter board and garland were added as well! You could use a letter board to write “boho new years day brunch” or use it for a food or drink bar. Maybe even use the board as a menu! I tried to get more than one use out of the food, by making it apart of my decorating. To do this, you can arrange food on cake stands, tree stumps or use a marble cutting board to put drinks on. The possibilities are endless, so definitely experiment in this area of decorating. Everything was laid out on my favorite, antique dresser. Plus, it actually has gold trim on it, so how perfect was it for a new years day brunch? And if you’re curious, this dresser was found at a thrift store.
