We’ve always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so when the opportunity arose to plan a breakfast buffet, hearty and healthy came to mind. It’s the perfect time of year to emphasize farm to table goodness, and a farmer’s market is the place to start. Our area’s farmer’s market was filled with so many beautiful fruits, it was hard to choose. Saving the packing boxes from the fruit and using them with the orchard baskets helped our guests to feel that they were getting the freshest produce in town!
Breads that emphasize whole grain goodness, along with jellies that are put up at their peak of freshness, add to the farm to market experience.
Wheat chaffs as decor reflect the amber waves of grain! (And they can be re-used on the fourth of July!)
A special way to add to your buffet theme is to include the guests tables in on the fun! These dollar store lanterns were a great purchase for multiple themes, such as chuckwagon, rodeo, and farm. They can be used over and over again for a small investment. For some interactive fun, a 2 oz mason jar was filled with corn kernels and tied with a bow (so no one could cheat) and each table guessed how many corn kernels were in the jar. A little ice breaker fun is always a plus!
