Creating a Mother’s Day Brunch at Home

It can be wonderful to create a special day for your mother and yourself. Once you become a mother, it can be hard to connect with your own mother on the big day. Putting together a brunch is a great way for you to both get together for at least a few hours. Let’s take a closer look how to create a Mother’s Day brunch at home.

Choose a Colour Scheme

Choosing a colour scheme is a great way to start planning any party. A great colour scheme would be to combine your and your mother’s favourite colours. If you’re not set on that, a spring colour scheme would also be perfect. You could add a number of fresh flowers to make the area beautiful.

Break Out Your DIY Skills

You can create some gorgeous pieces for your brunch tablescape by using inexpensive finds. For example, you can take a candlestick holder and glue a plate onto it before spray painting in gold, rose gold, or silver. You could then place a paper doily or cake round on the plate to create a serving piece. Just be creative. Hit your local thrift stores and find pieces that can be transformed.

Keep the Menu Simple

Your menu shouldn’t be complicated. After all, you’re a mother, too. You don’t want to spend the entire morning cooking. Instead, you could purchase a selection of pastries from a local bakery, fry up some bacon, and scramble some eggs to be served along side fresh fruit and mimosas or freshly squeezed orange juice. You may even want to see if local restaurants can cater the brunch.

Head Outdoors

If the weather is willing, set up your brunch outdoors. Spring is a wonderful time to eat outdoors. The weather is usually not too hot or too cold. Best of all, the bugs haven’t started to take over everything just yet. This means you can enjoy your meal without the heat or the creepy crawlies.

Make Cleanup Easy

Last, but not least, purchase a disposable tablecloth, plates, cups, napkins, and utensils that match your colour scheme. When you’re done with the meal, remove the serving pieces and gather the corners of the tablecloth. You can then toss everything in the trash for easy cleanup.

A Mother’s Day brunch doesn’t have to be complicated. You don’t have to spend a lot of time cooking or cleaning. The idea is to simply create a pretty atmosphere and serve tasty food. This way, you and your mother can enjoy spending time together and you can enjoy the rest of your day without having to spend it cleaning up afterward. It’s a great way to spend Mother’s Day that is affordable, personable, and enjoyable.
