Throw Mom a Mother’s Day Brunch She’ll Love
This time of year, restaurants everywhere are touting their Mother’s Day Brunch specials, and sure, many people will flock to these establishments in their Sunday best and order all kinds of bottomless beverages. But instead of dressing up, driving across town, and crossing your fingers to get a good server, why not throw a customized Mother’s Day brunch right at home?
With the right planning and a little creativity, you can put together a brunch filled with goodies and good times for Mom. Pick from the suggestions below or let them inspire you to come up with something you know your mother will love.
Sweeten Things Up with a Waffle Bar
Who doesn’t love waffles? You can make regular waffles or even ante up for yummy cake waffles! For picky-eater moms, whip up gluten-free waffles or vegan waffles. Just make sure you have the right toppings and sides. Pick out fresh strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and sliced almonds, for starters. And pick out a nice bottle of maple syrup or get crafty and make this brown sugar butter syrup.
Get Savory with an Egg Dish
If your mom prefers protein for a breakfast, put together any number of simple egg recipes. If you like to prepare dishes ahead of time, check out this overnight Tex-Mex Egg Bake. If you want a guilty pleasure, this Bacon, Egg and Cheese Casserole is easy to whip up. If Mom is a healthy eater, you could prepare this trendy Poached Egg and Avocado Toast meal. And nobody can turn down these amazing Breakfast Tacos!
Toast Mom with a Mom-osa
Skip the iced tea and hand Mom a champagne glass of mimosa goodness! Add color to the festivities with these eye-catching tequila sunrise mimosas. Or keep things chill with a few Mimosa Smoothies. If you’re looking for a game-changer beverage, the Bleeding Mimosa combines champagne with blood-orange ice cubes. If your mom doesn’t imbibe, you can always mix fresh squeezed orange juice with a splash of club soda and a few pieces of chopped fruit.
Don’t Skimp on Dessert
Remind your mom that this is her day, so calories don’t count! Hit up your local bakery for doughnuts or pastries, or get creative and put your baking skills to the test. If you’re really crafty, brighten up the table with this Cupcake Bouquet Basket. If that’s a bit ambitious, you can always make these delicious Mini Fruit Tarts. If your mom is a chocolate fiend, these Chocolate Brownie Cookies should be a hit. As a bonus – they’re gluten-free!
