Waking up to a well-stocked table on a lazy day is one of the simplest pleasures of life. The concept of brunch originated in England in the 1800's and the idea behind this hearty meal is quite simple - to make up for the missed breakfast when lunch time is still a few hours away. But today, this notion has clearly undergone a makeover. With restaurants chalking out a dedicated menu, brunch has transformed into a hip outing with friends and family.
There's a lot to love about brunch. While some see brunch as an opportunity to sit back and unwind over a speedy meal and light alcohol, others like to head out to indulge in a lavish buffet. It's the perfect way to entertain. For those of you who like playing host, here's a handy guide to plan the perfect at-home brunch.
