Instructions

  1. Arrange a few small vases with fresh flowers and set them out on the space where you plan to set the spread.
  2. Wash the grapes and berries and set aside to dry. Slice three oranges into wheels, cut watermelon into wedges. Slice pineapple and mango into chunks. Once dried, slice about 10 of the strawberries in half and dice the rest to make about 1 cup of diced strawberries. Combine the diced strawberries and blueberries in a mixing bowl.
  3. Make the Sausage Egg Casserole (see recipe card), bake the bacon and cook the sausage links. Once cooked, keep them warming in a 200°F oven while you finish preparing the rest of the spread.
  4. Fill small bowls with almond butter, raspberry preserves, honey, blueberry preserves and hazelnut spread. Place them down the middle of a 20” round wood board. Arrange the mini muffins, sweet rolls, mini bagels, and croissants on the board.
  5. Place the Chocolate Chip Brioche loaf on a wood paddle board. Go ahead and slice a few slices to get the spread started.
  6. Arrange donuts on a small cake stand.
  7. Fill small bowls with raspberries, pineapple chunks, mango chunks, and a mix of the blueberries and diced strawberries. Place them in the middle of a 14” round wood board. Arrange orange wheels, watermelon wedges, strawberry halves and grape bunches around the bowls on the board.
  8. Fill small bowls with granola, raspberries, a mix of blueberries and diced strawberries, and banana slices.  Arrange them on half of an 18” x 12” wood board. Fill a small jar with honey and place it on the board as well. Place unopened Greek yogurt cups on the other half of the board.
  9. Fill small bowls with butter, plain cream cheese and strawberry cream cheese and place them on the spread space.
