A harvest brunch buffet to celebrate fall

Harvest centerpiece

As the cooler weather creeps in, and the crisp smell of autumn greets us in the mornings, what would be more perfect than throwing a fall brunch for family and friends? Since it’s harvest time, there are plenty of fresh ingredients available for serving and for decorating. Here are some ideas for you!

Harvest decorations

The possibilities are endless when it comes to fall decorations for your brunch. A simple centerpiece can be made from just a shallow wicker basket and natural ingredients.

For example, line your basket with fall leaves of different colors. In the center, place a small pumpkin and surround it with small gourds of various shapes and colors. You can stop there, or you can add pinecones and milkweed pods for some festive variety.

Mini pumpkins are also a great touch for your table. Cut the tops off and scoop out the insides, then place a candle (real or flameless tealights) inside with a raffia bow tied around the candle. These can be grouped together, placed at each place setting, or scattered around the buffet table.

The brunch buffet

Brunches are traditionally set up as buffets that also include breakfast and luncheon foods. All recipes can be doubled or tripled depending on how many guests you invite.

In addition to the recipes below, brown up sausage links in traditional flavors and maple flavoring for a change. Use wicker baskets lined with cloth napkins in autumn colors for the silverware, napkins and muffins.
