Ideas for New Year’s Day Brunch pastries (Water’s Edge Westbrook CT)

I’ve often thought New Year’s Day Brunch is the perfect social event. None of the pressure of New Year’s Eve – no pressure to drink, no pressure to bring a date, you can dress -up in your new Christmas digs or dress -down in those tried and true jean..


And, it’s New Year’s Day so it’s all about fresh starts and new beginnings. A refreshing way to spend a late morning, early afternoon.


About the only booze one can expect is a Bloody Mary or Champagne Mimosa, should you choose to take an honorary New Yea’s Day sip. Nonetheless,  completely optional.

This is a ideal day to do family pot luck , eventually, members may have a special dish or two to which people look forward like homemade crepe smothered in molasses . Or it’s a fun day to try new recipes. A New Year’s Day Brunch is also  a perfect day to converse – bring back the art of conversation.
