Are you pulling together a last minute weekend brunch to celebrate a birthday or honor a friend? Here are some simple ways to make a nice presentation without slaving away in the kitchen for hours (or having to get up at some god-awful ridiculous hour on a Sunday). We made a breakfast strada to satisfy those needing a savory treat in the a.m., which was something prepared the evening before, and popped in the oven an hour before guests arrived. Whole Foods supplied our morning sweet tooth craving: scones and an array of pastries we cut into bite sized pieces and displayed on a three-tiered platter. A blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry mélange with plain greek yogurt topped it all off. Bring out your wedding china for an event like this! Stacking pretty dishes for self-service and using fine linens makes it feel special. Grab some flowers at your market, brew some strong coffee, and offer juice, Mimosas and Bloody Marys.
