Big announcement: we are moving! As part of our farewell tour, Kevin’s parents hosted a going away brunch party for us. We thought it would be fun to contribute a DIY bagel bar into the party with a variety of bagels, spreads and toppings. This ended up being a simple yet creative way to serve brunch and hit everyone’s unique taste buds.

Hosting a bagel bar allows for 100% creativity. Feel free to have fun with the flavors! We decided to keep everything savory, but you could also incorporate sweeter flavors with bagels such as cinnamon raisin, cinnamon sugar, etc. with plain or strawberry cream cheese, light honey drizzle and fresh berry toppings.

We incorporated this bagel bar into a larger brunch spread including frittatas, fruit salad and mimosas. It ended up being an easy but great addition to the brunch party!
