Feasting in Breckenridge- A Photo Tour

Want to feed a crowd and not have takeout pizza for every meal? Here are some great tips along with a photo tour of my time in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Breckenridge Colorado- A Photo Tour

I recently had the privilege of spending time in Breckenridge, Colorado with some wonderful blogging colleagues. I left feeling inspired, educated, and motivated! We had lots of work sessions, plenty of time to take in the beautiful sights, and of course we spent many hours enjoying meals together. If you aren’t following these ladies I would love to introduce you:

For breakfast we indulged in homemade donuts with customized toppings.

Customize quick donuts for a crowd!

There was also plenty of fresh produce on hand. In addition we set up a cereal and yogurt bar.

Of course I took some time to enjoy my favorite morning routine- a cup of coffee and a few quiet minutes to clear my mind.

Be sure to build in private times- enjoy a quiet moment with a favorite cup of coffee

I might have indulged in a Biscoff cookie. Or two.

Biscoff Cookies perfect with coffee

When you’re serving a crowd be sure to have plenty of drink options. Instead of someone frantically mixing drinks in the corner we took time to have a recipe demonstration. The drinks were prepared in no time and we all benefited by having a new recipe up our sleeves!

We grilled out a few nights as well- always a great option for a crowd.

Grilling is great to feel a crowd

Look who came to visit while we were grilling! 😉

Despite me being terrified of our visitor above I took a few friends along with me for a quick hike at various times all weekend. I just couldn’t get enough of this beautiful town!

For lunches we enjoyed leftovers, a meat and cheese plate, and a baked potato bar.

Loaded Baked Potato Bar is great for serving a crowd

Pile the toppings high for this loaded baked potato bar!

Don’t forget dessert! We had a wonderful indoor s’mores bar, a chocolate flight, and individual cobblers.

Indoor Smores Bar- FABULOUS idea!

If you have the chance definitely book a private chef one evening. The food was fabulous. The view wasn’t too bad either. 😉
