What better way to celebrate your mother than by gathering with family and hosting a delicious Mother’s Day brunch? If you need some ideas for your Mother’s Day celebration, we’ve got you covered with some fun brunch ideas for mom.
4 Mindful Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas
Mother’s Day Decorations
Balloons and streamers are classic party decorations, but there are two unique ways for you to add a personal touch to the decorations. Brighten up your celebratory brunch with teacup floral arrangements—they’re very sweet and if you use artificial flowers you can give away the arrangements as party favors. You can also create and hang posters featuring old pictures of you, your siblings, and your mother.
Pick a Classy Menu
Traditional brunch menus usually include waffles and salads. For your Mother’s Day brunch, consider adding a unique, classy dish into the mix, such as a wild mushroom and asparagus quiche or a triple berry French toast casserole. You can also try a Swiss chard, pear, and gruyere tart. This recipe from the Joy of Kosher has a lot of ingredients but the end result is a delicious gluten-free tart.
The Perfect Mother’s Day Dessert
This year, skip the sheet cake and make your mother something truly special for dessert. You can make an apple rose tart with a maple-flavored custard and a walnut crust. It’s a yummy dessert with an intricate design—the final product looks like a bouquet of flowers in a tart. The apple roses inside the tart are made from thinly sliced apples rolled tightly in the walnut crust and topped with the maple and vanilla custard. The recipe from Baking a Moment is listed here.
Drinks for Toasts
Lastly, you’ll need a special drink for when you make your Mother’s Day toast. Mimosas are classic brunch drinks, but if your mother prefers not to drink alcohol, consider making mocktails. Mocktails are delicious beverages that have the same flavors as the cocktails minus the alcohol. For your brunch, you can serve a roasted peach and strawberry fizz or a pomegranate pink lady.
