1. What is a Champagne Breakfast?
A champagne breakfast is a decadent spread of fancy breakfast food, together with a delicious glass of cold champagne. It’s the perfect Christmas Celebration meal for families when you have to visit multiple relatives in a day (except for the champagne bit lol).
Champagne breakfasts usually consist of pastries, fresh fruits, bacon and eggs, muffins, waffles and champagne.
2. What Time Do You Serve a Champagne Breakfast?
A champagne breakfast is traditionally served morning to mid-morning (like a brunch). This allows enough time for your visitors to arrive and to have everything ready. A champagne breakfast is likened to that of a breakfast at a fancy hotel – a huge choice of foods that you wouldn’t normally have – special foods!
3. Choosing a Menu for a Champagne Breakfast
Choosing your menu can be tough because there are so many delicious breakfast foods! Because a Champagne Breakfast is a celebration – you want to be generous on servings.
Allow at least one serving of each dish – per person.
Choose at least:
- Two drinks per person (one alcoholic for adults)
- Three cold foods per person
- Four hot food items per person
Any leftovers can be recycled to be lunch and dinner (it’s Christmas – everyone always over-caters!).
Go through all our ideas for foods below, and choose your dishes accordingly.
4. What Type of Drinks Do Your Serve at a Champagne Breakfast?
Any type of sparkling white wine that you enjoy! If you are having a lot of visitors, have a selection of both dry and sweet champagnes or sparkling wines. Even prosecco is a great choice!
If you are celebrating a big milestone – you could even consider making a signature drink to serve at the breakfast.
As well as the alcohol, have a range of tea and coffee, and a selection of juices.
It’s always easier to just set up a kettle with tea and coffee etc all laid out so everyone can make their favourite cup their own way.
