Planning for a brunch party for mom on Mother's Day? These great ideas will surely help you throw a great brunch spread that will make your momma proud!
One of the first things to consider is what your mom actually wants for brunch - after all, the party is for her, and she of all people should be happy with the food. Does she prefer pancakes or waffles? Is she more of a morning coffee person or does she want a cold glass of mimosa when she's in a celebratory mood? In short, the theme of the party depends on your mom's personality.
Get Creative Juice featured a nice Mother's Day Brunch spread created by Charming Touch Parties. The spread has a nice color palete of yellow, pink, lime and orange. Aside from munchies like tarts and quiches, there were also photo frames and messages on display, giving it a personal touch.The coffee table is just as nice!
The TOMKAT Studio also has a great post on a Mother's Day spread that they did for HGTV. The color palette was light and not overwhelming - perfect for a simple Sunday get-together!
The carafes of colorful drinks on display is just marvelous - exciting but elegant. And the melon ball on the edge of each glass made the colors pop up even more. It's a feast for the senses and moms will enjoy the treat on her their special day for sure!
It might be also a great idea to whip up a batch of treats that goes with the brunch theme, such as these pancake-designed cookies from Design Lively. The post did not include a recipe for the cookies, but it was mentioned that Betty Crocker's simple recipe for sugar cookies. Sally's Baking Addiction also has a recipe for basic sugar cookies.
