Just Add Guests: Hunker and Food52's Fave DIY Saturday Brunch Plans

We'd like to know: Which world leader decided that Sunday should be internationally recognized as "brunch day"? Sure, Sunday brunch is totally fine, but we prefer its less popular cousin, Saturday. Think about it: You can get boozy without having to worry about a Monday hangover. Everyone's more likely to be available. And then, since you saw your friends in the daytime, you're not locked into some late-night plans you're going to lie to get out of anyhow.

To give our Saturday brunches that Gwyneth-like effortlessness, we opt for extra-sharable dishes that don't need to be individually plated. And you don't need much to dress it all up and make it look chic: just some earth tones and indie accessories, all sourced from our friends at Food52.
