It’s Mother’s Day this weekend! If you are like us, you love throwing a brunch to celebrate. To help you out with your event, we have a few menu suggestions and a couple tips to help your Mothers Day Brunch go off without a hitch.
Plan your menu from top to bottom. Do NOT try to wing it in the morning
Set out everything you’re going to need the night before. Dishes, decorations, etc…
Make the dishes that can be made the night before. Include at least one of these in your menu for ease (overnight French toast, an egg dish or scones)
Make a main dish and keep the rest of the food extremely simple
Fix up Bloody Mary mix or the juice for mimosas the night before
Make sure any fruit you serve is ripe
A pretty flower arrangement is really the only decoration you need
Keep your place setting simple but elegant
If someone ask what to bring let them bring something (champagne or croissants)
