I'm working on some concepts for a breakfast reception for a client and I came across the first picture below. Just one picture can spark inspiration and get your creative juices flowing.
Imagine the catering staff walking around the reception while the guests network and chat with sponsors. The goal of this breakfast reception is to introduce the attendees to the various sponsors/exhibitors prior to the event officially kicking off. This room will be filled to the rim with exhibitors and guests and we don't want to take up precious space with buffets. This would be a unique spin on a continental breakfast and be a huge space saver.
Another fun touch - have the catering staff wearing brightly colored company branded t-shirts.
I'm thinking donut holes, lemon lime muffins, morning buns and cinnamon rolls.
It would be a lovely touch to have a bag like this (that's branded of course) to put your goodies in.
A continental breakfast wouldn't be complete without some fruit - but fruit in a waffle cone sounds so much better. Don't you think?
As far as juices go - unique flavors all the way. Maybe Blueberry and White Grape juice, or Pomegranate and Raspberry juice or Cranberry and Apple juice.
You can change this up to match what ever theme you are going for. French - add in lots of french pastries and croissants and have the servers wear berets. So many possibilities.
