Great Kitchen Tools to Prepare for a Holiday Brunch

Preparing for a holiday brunch can be stressful, but having the right tools for the job can make it a lot easier. Here are a few of our favorite items to have on hand.

  • Baking Dishes– You’ll want to have lots of baking dishes around, but we especially love them in white. A common color allows you to mix and match styles.
  • Oven Rack– An oven rack helps create more space so that you can bake several dishes at the same time.
  • Serving Utensils– Serve your guests in style with elegant serving utensils.
  • Trivets– You don’t want to mess up your beautiful surfaces with burns so trivets are a must!
  • Place Cards– You can write on ceramic place cards with a dry erase pen to label each of the dishes. It’s also a great way to let people know if a recipe has any potential allergy ingredients.
