Breakfast reception menu for a small at-home wedding

Captain_Ironphoenix | Jul 22, 202011:28 AM     31

I'm planning a breakfast "reception" for about 10 people following my morning wedding. I'd like some input on my menu:

Doughnuts from a local bakery
Strawberries and dip (any recommendations for a dip recipe?)
Yogurt with toppings
Spiral Sliced Ham
Mini Croissants (store-bought but decent)
Sliced cheese & condiments for anyone wanting to make little crossiant sandwiches.
Amaretto pound cake, in place of wedding cake

For drinks, there will be a cold brew iced coffee bar, iced tea, and fresh orange and grapefruit juice. There will be champange on hand for mimosas and I'm thinking about adding a pitcher of Bloody Marys.

I'm thinking about adding some sausage balls to the menu (you know the ones made with biscuit mix) and I'd like an egg dish. Is breakfast too early for deviled eggs lol? Maybe a strata or a frittata or a quiche? I'd like something that can be made ahead and doesn't need to be served piping hot.
