Mother’s Day Brunch

Although the celebration of Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May in the U.S. is fairly recent (established in the 20th Century), I’m sure a majority of people would agree that this holiday should’ve started ages ago. Being a mother entails a lot more than the birthing process, so for all of those individuals that feel a little left out when it comes to celebrating this holiday, don’t. Celebrate the special women in your life that have offered a nurturing hug, smile, advice or a home-cooked meal.

My co-worker, whether she likes it or not, always gets to hear about how much “I love that woman.” My mother, and I’m sure this applies to a lot of girls (or guys), was my first best friend and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her. We bend over backwards sometimes for our girlfriends and buddies on their special days, why not make a triple-decker attempt to let our mothers know just how much we appreciate their love and attention.

A surprise Mother’s Day Brunch is an awesome way to give those ladies the royal treatment. Since brunch is a little later than breakfast, it gives them time to sleep in and it allows for a little extra time for decorating and preparations as well. With the current state of the economy, more and more people are entertaining at home these days, so when I say a special brunch, I don’t mean for anyone to declare bankruptcy the following week.

Start with a list of your mother’s closest friends and relatives and send either simple Floral Themed Invitations or create e-vites if you’d like to save a few bucks. Simple partyware is probably the best option economically as well as aesthetically. You can create fun centerpieces out of knick-knacks found around the house such as giant spools of ribbon:

Use thick spools of ribbon in colorful shades of pinks, blues, yellows and greens

Stack them from biggest to smallest (working from the bottom up)

Use Disposable Plastic Plates (dessert or luncheon size) at the very top ornamented with mommy’s favorite treats

You can have a breakfast food table, a luncheon food table and a dessert table

Mothers usually appreciate thoughtful gifts or get-togethers the most because they come from the heart and they show just how much you really know what she loves. This Mother’s Day, surprise her with a homemade card, perhaps laminated with your favorite photographs of the two of you. We know our mothers are special; let THEM know that they are.
