We love the holidays!!! It is our tradition to host Christmas brunch for my parents so that they can be here to enjoy watching Bailey open her gifts from Santa. The first year I was a little overwhelmed by the idea of hosting first thing in the morning especially after being Santa Claus the night before.  I want to make every occasion special.   This will be our 4th year of our Christmas Brunch tradition.  I have teamed up with Coca-Cola and Safeway to share 3 Tips to Throw the Perfect Holiday Brunch.

  1. Prep Ahead of Time – I like to have everything set the night before including our table, food and drinks.  I have two favorite recipes an egg casserole and a stuffed french toast.  Both of them can be made the night before which means that I simply need to turn the oven on, pop them in and enjoy.  They make the house smell amazing.
  2. Self Service Bar – From a Hot Chocolate Bar to a Waffle bar I love setting up a self service bar.  It doubles as additional festive decor and allows guests to serve themselves as much food and drink as they would like made exactly they way they like it.   For this brunch I set up a drink bar with Gold Peak iced tea, the adorable glass bottle of Coca-Cola and Sprite.

I generally take food and drinks out of their original packaging when I am serving them, but the glass bottles of Coca-Cola are so cute I knew I wanted to display them!  See step by step instructions below on how to make them!

And to make it easier I kept the Sprite and Ice Tea in their bottles as well.  Adding a big bow and mini wreaths allowed them to add to my decor and avoid getting a pitcher dirty.
