Brunch: the perfect meal to serve for baby showers, bridal showers, baptisms, and on wedding days. If you’re planning a brunch in Richmond, you’re in luck, we have so many wonderful bakeries and gourmet markets, you’ll have to do no more than plate and present. Below are a few of my favorite local brunch treats that can be ordered in large quantities in advance (and some deliver!).

-Quiche or croissants from Sub Rosa Bakery (Let’s take a moment to give thanks for Sub Rosa’s chocolate croissants. Lord have mercy.)

-Smoked gouda pimento cheese from Mosaic (serve with Ritz, of course)

-Pretty canapés from Everyday Gourmet

Cuisine a la Carte’s classic chicken salad on rosemary-raisin crackers from Yellow Umbrella

-Shrimp and crab cheese ball from Bon Air Seafood (serve with club crackers)

-A donut “cake” from Sugar Shack (Basically a gigantic donut. Crowd. Pleaser.)

-Maroulosalata (a yummy salad of lettuce, dill, lemon, feta, scallion, olive oil and vinegar), Spanakopita, or a cheese and charcuterie platter from Stella’s Grocery

-Macarons from Sweet Fix Bakery

Throw together a quick fruit salad, a pitcher of mimosas and fill a drink decanter with iced water and cucumber slices, and brunch is served!

A Survivor’s Breakfast

breakfast party

I’ve read that Price Harry is hosting a 6am “survivor’s breakfast” for anyone who survives the late night (and early morning) festivities following the Royal Wedding. Brunch parties are always fun, but they’re an especially charming way to punctuate a weekend of wedding merriment!
