Consider booking a food truck that offers a variety of items including crepes, donuts, tacos, coffee, you name it! If you can’t decide to serve more breakfast or lunch inspired items, book two different trucks so guests will have options and a mix of both. That's what brunch is all about!
Dress To Impress

Knowing what to wear for an event can sometimes be tricky to gauge. For a festivity such as a champagne brunch party, it’s best to dress in your favorite outfit that’s elegant yet comfortable. A few ideas that might spark a bit of inspiration could be a floral dress, a sleek pantsuit, or even a cute blazer with jeans. If you really want to go with the brunch’s dazzling theme, you could wear something that’s sparkly or has sequins.
Imagine walking into your event space and filling your senses with the smells of fresh florals and stunning arrangements. You don’t have to imagine it, as this dream can be a reality with assistance from local florists.
With their beautiful flowers and products, you can adorn your venue the way you have always envisioned it. Place stunning centerpieces on tables, drape greenery over door entrances, and also put flowers in empty floor spaces.
Champagne towers are all the rage right now. They provide a fun and exciting photo opportunity as the bubbly pours down the layers of glasses. This can be as graceful or messy as you want, but you’ll definitely want to capture this on camera.
Champagne Color Scheme
While decorating your brunch space, you’ll want to stick with the champagne color scheme. Think golds, whites, and light pinks to bring the bubbly to life. Incorporate these shades into your tablescape with cloth napkins, utensils, and plates.
Another decorative suggestion to tie your theme into your venue space is a champagne balloon wall. With this balloon, you can create a lovely champagne wall for guests to use as a stylish photo opportunity for the perfect Instagram shot. All you need is a large champagne bottle-shaped balloon, like this one from Etsy.
Stick it on your wall in a pouring motion, and then place other smaller balloons in varying colors and sizes at the top of the neck of the bottle. Thus, making a cute balloon decor item that looks like flowing bubbly!

Piñatas come in all shapes in sizes, including champagne bottle designs! Not only does it go with the theme of your party, but it’s an excellent activity for everyone to join in and cheer for. Guests can gather around and watch people hit the hanging champagne piñata until it breaks apart and reveals what’s inside. You can fill the champagne piñata with anything you would like, either with candy or mini bottles of alcohol—if it’s an adult-only event.
It wouldn’t be a champagne brunch party without, of course, champagne! Welcome your friends and family as they walk in with a refreshing glass of bubbly to kick off the celebrations. No matter if it’s Brut, Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, or Blanc de Noirs, every time your guests hear the sound of the cork popping, they will smile in delight.
