We love brunch. Almost every weekend I put on a big brunch but I mix it up with different ideas each week. Brunch is normally a serve-yourself bar and is centered around a particular item. Baked goods, a charcuterie board, bacon bar, pancakes, and quiche with fresh fruit have made their way onto the brunch table. This time, I put together a waffle bar.

A Spring themed waffle bar is perfect if you are hosting brunch, an afternoon party, Easter Sunday with family, or a party at school.

What you need for a waffle bar

  • Eggo Homestyle Waffles
  • Syrup: maple and chocolate
  • Fruit: strawberries, blueberries and banana
  • Toppings: sprinkles, candy, coconut, white chocolate chips, powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream

It doesn’t take much effort to put together a fun, themed breakfast bar. With this one, I wanted spring colors such as purple, pink, yellow, and blue. I knew I wanted fruit because it is spring and there’s no better time to pick up seasonal fresh berries. Wandering around Walmart I came across the sprinkles and pastel candy and thought they would be perfect for toppings.

To add a little more color and tie everything into your waffle bar, wrap scrapbook paper around containers that you plan on using such as butter or whipped cream.  It takes just a couple of minutes to cut paper to size, wrap it around like a sleeve and glue the ends.

Flowers are the perfect addition to your spring food table too. They don’t need to be a fancy bouquet and you don’t need to spend a fortune. I clipped a few of these out of a vase of flowers that were already in my house.

Don’t forget fresh fruit and powdered sugar. I put confectioners sugar into a metal sifter and put it on a plate so the kids could sift their own sugar onto their pancakes and ‘make it snow’.

Tip: Don’t cook all of the waffles at once. Heat up a couple to get the first person started and then make to order so everyone has fresh, hot waffles, ready to put toppings on. Or, let them heat up their own waffles. It’s not to early to teach the kids new life skills and get them more involved in cooking anyway.

What a great idea! I love setting out a waffle bar and letting everyone make their own waffle. For me, I’d go straight for the berries and coconut! This looks like the perfect spring breakfast! #client
