After a baptism, a confirmation, a first communion, or a morning wedding, a breakfast is usually served. Such a breakfast is really more like a luncheon, with three courses the general rule. It can be a buffet or a sit-down affair, as you choose.

The first three occasions are usually family affairs, with only a small number of guests, and the menus for these breakfasts have been planned for a group of 8 or 10 persons.
