Successful brunches often start with protein and hardy foods, and usually end with a sweet bite. Once guests have had enough time to enjoy their finger foods, create a separate serving station that's all about dessert. A perfect mix typically includes one large cake or pie, a platter of unique cupcakes, small bites such as chocolate, and a gourmet coffee station.
