 Mother’s Day Brunch Cheat Sheet


Let’s be honest, celebrating Mother’s Day at a restaurant can be the last thing a mother wants. Think: crowded, rushed, and ridiculously expensive. This year, why not host brunch for family and friends at your home. Much less formal than an evening meal, it’s one of the easiest meals to pull together. Our cheat sheet is all you need!

Fresh Flowers

Did you know that the official Mother’s Day flower is the carnation? Included in the top 10 you’ll find tulips, roses, and daisies. Nothing brightens a space like a beautiful bouquet. FYI Flower shop vases are overpriced! Head to the dollar store for affordable options or cut some from the garden.

Something Sweet

No celebration is complete without something sweet. Serve as part of the meal with pancakes, french toast, cinnamon buns, and banana bread. Or keep it as a surprise brunch dessert, consider fresh fruit tarts, apple streusel cake, and Nutella puff pastry.

Something Savoury

A mash-up of breakfast and lunch, you should serve up something savoury and substantial. Consider easy options like quiche, frittata, or smoked salmon. For more gourmet options, Google crispy egg potato nests, eggs benedict, or crepes.

Martha Stewart Inspired Cocktails

Coffee and tea are a must at your Mother’s Day brunch! Most people need a little something to get them going in the morning. But once that first cup of caffeine is in the system, how about something a little fancier? While mimosas are traditional, check out Martha Stewart’s ultimate drink list, The Most Beautiful Drinks to Serve at your Mother’s Day Brunch, Lunch, or Dinner!
