Struggling to figure out what to get the moms in your life who have everything? We’ve got the perfect suggestion. The one thing mothers all over the world can’t get enough of is time with you. So why not surprise her with a personalized Mother’s Day brunch? You don’t have to make it super fancy. We’re going to show you how to make it fun, easy and special. Just follow a few of these ideas and this will be one Mother’s Day that she’ll never forget.
Take it outside!
Spring is in the air, so why not treat mom to a fun outdoor brunch? Tidy up that outdoor area and dress it up a little. First things first. Flowers make a great centerpiece that your mom can take with her after. Fresh flowers instantly add color and great atmosphere to your outdoor room. Lavender, lilies, cut hydrangea or roses are always a great choice. Want to keep it on a budget. Get a small bouquet and make your own creation from greenery found right around your house.
Keep Your Food Choices Simple
It is Mother’s Day, after all, so you don’t want to rush the brunch. Super-hot foods can go cold pretty quickly, so it’s best to keep your food selections simple. Treat your mom (and yourself) with her favorite pastries, muffins, croissants, maybe even throw in a sweeter treat like cannoli or two. Keep it simple and add a bowl of fresh fruit like strawberries, blueberries and pineapples. All light and refreshing, fruit really adds a lot of flavor and color to your table.
What’s brunch without a refreshing beverage? MOMosas are the most popular Mother’s Day brunch drink, so why reinvent the wheel? A little champagne, OJ and don’t forget the garnish – add fresh fruit, berries or mint to make it fancy. Or if you go the alcohol-free route, think refreshing lemonades or flavored iced tea.
Setting the Table
Have fun and get creative without breaking the bank. Embrace the spring air and keep your tablescape light and bright with pastel plates and fruit bowls for the table setting. Create a classy loose knot with some linen napkins to place on the plates.
Most of all remember you’re enjoying this delightful brunch and spending quality time with your favorite person. Make it a day she will remember forever.
There you have it. Just a few ideas to get you started. No one knows you better so be sure to have fun and surprise her with your entertaining skills.
To all of the wonderful mothers out there – Have an extra special Mother’s Day!!!
