This Sunday I will be sneaking over to my parents’ place while they are at church and whip up a yummy brunch on a gorgeous (if all goes well) flower laden table out in the backyard. I am very excited to see the look on my mom’s face when she walks out the backyard not only to unexpectedly see me and my brother standing there, but to see a feast waiting for her.
This task doesn’t require a whole lot of planning, so with only two days until Mother’s day, I thought I would share with you some ideas on how you can surprise your mom with a special Sunday brunch.
1. This lovely brunch table setting has place marker flags sticking out of a stack of pancakes. 2. I have made these bacon, egg and toast cups and they are delicious, fun, easy and filling 3. This pancake bar is a great way to let mom serve up her pancakes just the way she likes them 4. Make tea and coffee (and your table) pretty with mismatched china 5. Offer bite sized food so mom can enjoy all her favourites 6. Layer yogurt, fruit preserves and granola in glasses for a yummy and simple brunch treat 7. Don’t forget to adorn the table with flowers. Every woman, especially mom, loves a good bouquet 8. Does mom love to complete the crossword puzzle every Sunday? Why not add a Sunday Brunch Crossword to her table setting 9. Leave a sweet and simple gift on mom’s place setting to make her feel extra special.
Don’t live near mom? Why not call around her hometown and hire her a personal chef for an evening? I’m sure she wouldn’t say no to kicking up her feet for a night and letting someone else cook her a gourmet meal (gosh doesn’t that sound lovely?)
To moms all over, Happy Mother’s Day. You are loved.
