Host the Perfect Brunch for Mother's Day

Cal Giant | May 8, 2018


Mother's Day is almost here and there's nothing like celebrating the woman that drives you to every soccer practice, adds an "I love you" sticky note to your lunch, and picks you up every time you fall. She's the best! It's hard remembering all of the wonderful things she does throughout the year and that's why I'm so thankful there's a special day set aside just for her.  

Whether you want to serve your mom breakfast in bed or treat her to a gorgeous Sunday brunch on the patio, we've got the eats and treats to help you communicate just how much you love her. This year you can serve a brunch that's almost as perfect as her. 

No brunch is perfect without a signature drink and a fresh berry herb cocktail is the boozy refreshment your mom is going to love. While you're putting brunch together your mom can sit back, relax and enjoy sipping on her fresh berry herb cocktail. And if you're hosting a brunch for a mom-to-be then you have to try this berry refresher as a delicious baby safe drink. 

Fluffy waffles, sweet crepes and mini angel food cakes are just a few of the sweet eats you can prepare this Mother's Day. If you're hosting mothers and grandmothers this Sunday, try a DIY granola bar big enough to feed a crowd. They're super easy and provide everyone a quick and delicious bite. 

Something fun you could do this Mother's Day is bring family photos from around the house into the kitchen or pull out old family albums. Looking through old photos always brings a smile to my mothers face and I normally get to learn something new about her! Discover my favorite brunch options for this Mother's Day below and check out the Brunching with Berries eBook for even more recipes ideas.
