Planning on doing something special for mom this Mother’s Day? Why not skip the busy, overcrowded restaurants and have a lovely homemade brunch instead? We’ve put together a fool-proof plan to help show your gratitude for mom and make her day simply unforgettable.
Mimosas, anyone? Give a classic brunch cocktail a fun twist by offering different juices to choose from like grapefruit, cranberry, pomegranate and classic OJ. And for those who prefer a jolt of caffeine to start the day, try serving iced coffee in empty Farmer’s Garden mason jars.
For the main course, we love Reclaiming Provincial’s recipe for sweet heart-shaped eggs-in-a-basket. Employ little ones to help cut out heart shapes with cookie cutters from slices of bread.
Don’t forget that presentation is everything. Create a polished, yet rustic tablescape by mixing and matching fine china with casual linens, and filling an assortment of empty jars with fresh cut flowers. Our personal favorite? Soothing and sweet-smelling sprigs of lavender.
And lastly, don’t forget personal touches. Whether you’re crafting mom a card out of glitter and construction paper, or writing her a handwritten note, she’ll love the simple gesture.
