Breakfast For Dinner
As the Urban Dictionary defines, brinner is “breakfast eaten at the time in which you eat dinner.” There’s no wonder why the International House of Pancakes and Denny’s serves breakfast all day—people just can’t get enough of the butter-and-syrup-drenched goodness.
If you happen to be the type that swoons at the site of syrup, ogles over omelets, or longingly looks on Liege waffles, it’s time to throw out the whole tradition of a rehearsal dinner and have a rehearsal brinner instead.
Breakfast Palette Just think of all the possibilities that breakfast at dinner could bring to your special occasion—an omelet bar loaded with all of your favorite ingredients or even a crepe bar with more chocolate-hazelnut spread than you could ever imagine. You could even hire your own barista to whip up mocha frappuccinos, caramel macchiatos, or vanilla lattes for your java junkies. If the informality of brinner worries you, perhaps you could dress up your everyday breakfast foods. Serve heart-shaped buttermilk waffles drizzled with blueberry syrup and vanilla-flavored whipped cream with a side of smoked salmon. To wash it down, add some champagne to the orange juice for some classic mimosas.
You could also transform the traditional notion of pancakes into something more gourmet. For a fall wedding, serve whole-wheat pumpkin pancakes with butter pecan syrup, or in the summer, consider beet and chia seed pancakes for the health conscious. Since “cake” just happens to be the root of the breakfast specialty, why not have your baker construct a naked tiered pancake cake. It might just be the most beautiful and unique wedding cake you have ever seen. Color Palette
While contemplating the color scheme for your rehearsal brinner, or for that matter, your whole wedding celebration, just keep thinking “morning.” When you’re eating breakfast, it’s hard to miss those early rays of light as they cascade across your table with their soft and subtle yellow glow. And then there are the peachy and reddish colors of the sunrise—almost sherbet-toned hues.
There are a variety of flowers that would fit perfectly into your palette. Perhaps you could choose ranunculus or roses in an array of those sherbet tones. Not only are the soft-headed flowers with whorls of delicate petals beautiful to the site, their straight stems and long vase life would make ideal centerpieces.
Once everything is in place and the guests have been greeted and served, it’s time to grab your mimosas and make a toast to the most important meal of the day—breakfast, of course! Oh, and don’t forget all those breakfasts that you and your soon-to-be spouse will be sharing together for a lifetime.
