Luncheon menus are special! Just think about it...you won't have to get out of bed too early to start cooking and you’ll be out of the kitchen by early afternoon!
Luncheon menus can be formal with linen tablecloths and your best flatware or casual with paper plates and plastic forks.
Rev things up with an interactive buffet menu, cheerful decorations and soft but lively music.
The time to consider a luncheon menu is for baby showers, birthday
celebrations, anniversary parties, bridal showers, business meetings and farewell parties.
These luncheon menus also serve well for brunch. Preview brunch menus and think about mixing and matching dishes from those menus with the luncheon menu dishes.
Recipes, helpful hints and make ahead advice are all included
These menus are excellent for afternoon or early evening
parties. Life is made easier by purchasing appetizers and desserts from your favorite
bakery or specialty market.
