Prep your ingredients ahead of time. You can make so many of these things the day or night before brunch. If nothing else, prep as many ingredients as you can the night before so the morning of, you just need to assemble the recipes. Store ingredients in airtight containers so they can easily be found in the morning.
Set the table the night before. One less thing to worry about! If you have a pet who likes to climb up on the table, I would suggest flipping the plates over so they are upside down so no paws get on them. Save the silverware for the morning of.
