Mother’s Day is in just a couple of short days and we all know how important it is to celebrate the mothers in our lives. I’ve been traveling this week, so my planning for the Mother’s Day brunch I’m putting on has been a little lacking. But for those who find themselves scrambling to throw something together for dear ol’ mom, fear not. I’ve got a few fast ideas that will help you pull together a Mother’s Day brunch.
First, set the table. Because I’m a little travel weary, I know I’m not going to be up for the clean-up that goes along with real linens, silverware, and tableware. (And because I’m a mom myself, I’m cutting myself a little slack as a Mother’s Day present to myself.) I made a trip to Target and found some bright and colorful table decor for our morning feast that will clean up fast and didn’t set me back a ton of cash. No, I don’t normally go for paper plates, but these guys were so bright and cheerful, I fell for them.
Next, add fresh flowers. Everything feels fancier with fresh flowers.
Now your table is set. But what to put on it and in your Momma’s belly? Here are a few of my absolute FAVORITE brunch recipes to get you started:
Crustless Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche by A Cup of Joe
Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Vanilla Yogurt by Ina Garten
Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee by Smitten Kitchen
Baked French Toast with Blueberries by Giada De Laurentiis
Breakfast Pizza by Smitten Kitchen
That’s all there is to it. Your table is set, the flowers look gorgeous, the food smells delicious, and the clean-up will be a breeze. Just what this mom desperately needs this Mother’s Day. Have a great weekend and hug Mom from me!
