HOW TO SETUP YOUR BAGEL BAR

+ The morning of your brunch visit your local bakery or grocery store and grab fresh bagels. We'd suggest getting a variety of options--plain bagels, cinnamon raisin, poppyseed, asiago cheese, everything. 

+ Set up a cut little toaster near the sliced bagels. Either you can go ahead and toast them for your guests or place a cute handwritten note near the toaster saying Help Yourself. 

+ Prepare your cream cheese by letting it set at room temperature and transfer to a bowl. Don't serve it directly from the container. You want everything to be pretty pretty. 

+ Lay out all of your fixings.Here are some options.....
