Instead of taking my mom out this Sunday, I'm cooking her a delicious homemade brunch. I suggest you do the same! You'll save money and skip the wait at restaurants, which are sure to be crowded on Mother's Day. To inspire you, I've come up with an awesome menu complete with a scrumptious breakfast pizza and bubbly cocktail.
Mother's Day is only two short days away and I am busy as a bee preparing my mom's brunch. Everything is going along quite smoothly - a party for one is so much easier than a party for 300. I took care of making her a card earlier in the week by turning the mother's day card into a Mother's Day invitation. I'll make an easy breakfast of fruit salad, an egg sandwich, and sweet crepes with a strawberry bellini to wash the whole thing down. A very delicate beautifully set breakfast in bed tray will hold the magnificent meal. On Fridays, I usually talk about what kind of music will play at the party. Quite simply it all depends on your mom. If your mom loves Sting get a copy of his greatest hits for her. If she loves jazz make a compilation of new jazz songs for her. BuzzSugar suggests getting her The Reminder by Feist, a new cd filled with interesting ballads that your mom will love.
However there may be the chance that your mother prefers to watch tv or a new movie or read the paper. If this is the case, then netflix the movie she has been dying to see or order her the new book she has been talking about. The most important thing that you must remember is that Mother's Day is all about making mom feel loved and appreciated. Oftentimes the people we take for granted are the ones we love the most so go out of your way to be honestly nice and genuinely loving. If you do so, I can guarantee that your party will be a success and your guest of honor, your mom, will be unbelievably happy.
Mother's Day is this Sunday - if you didn't know, there is still time to send a card and have it arrive by Saturday! - and I am making a very special brunch to celebrate my wonderful mom. She got all teary eyed when she saw the beautiful card I made her inviting her to the brunch. As this is breakfast in bed, no over the top decorations are necessary. However a spotless house is a must and after you make the meal don't forget to clean the kitchen. The last thing your mom needs is to come downstairs from a luxurious breakfast in bed to a messy kitchen. Place the fruit salad in a silver bowl, the egg sandwich on a clean white plate, and the crepes on a separate small plate. Place all three on a beautiful old fashioned breakfast tray. Give her a big linen napkin to ensure that her bedspread does not get dirty, as well as several smaller paper napkins to wipe her fingers on. Use your good silverware and a chic fluted champagne glass for the bellini. Don't forget to place a napkin underneath the plates and glass to prevent them from sliding around on the walk from the kitchen to the bedroom. A small vase with your mom's favorite flowers will complete the look.
My mom is a super hard working school teacher. I try to help her out as much as I can because she is always there for me when I need motherly support, but I worry I never help her enough. That's why this Mother's Day, I'm making her a glorious breakfast in bed just for her (ok dad you can have some too!). I already made her a memorable handmade card and surprised her by leaving it underneath the covers of her bed. I came up with a simple yet delicious menu consisting of easy breakfast recipes that I'm positive my mom will devour. Next up on the party plan to do list: the drinks. My mom prefers beer and margaritas, but since those are a little inappropriate for the morning I'll be making her a strawberry bellini. We often order mimosas when we go out to brunch which is why I chose the bellini to make it seem more like a celebration. The only wine she'll drink is sparkling, so the prosecco based bellini is the ideal brunch drink. I've also found a great pomegranate orange juice recipe for all of the mom's out there who don't drink. Nothing beats fresh squeezed oj! Although this time of year the pomegranate juice will have to be from a bottle, but it still tastes absolutely divine. Please, for the recipes read more
Recently I went to brunch with my family and ordered some amazing cheese and berry crepes. Ever since, I have been searching for a reason to make my own version and this week I've finally found one: Mother's Day! I'm whipping up a super special brunch for my mama, complete with a homemade card, fruit salad, and egg sandwich (my mom's an old fashioned kind of girl and likes her food simple and scrumptious). I've already covered the savory section of the breakfast and while the fruit is slightly sweetened, I want a decadent finish. Crepes filled with a sweet marscarpone cream cheese mixture, topped with a bright strawberry sauce, will be a perfectly sweet ending to the meal. You know the drill: for the recipe, read more
Today I'm planning a simple and elegant brunch for Mother's Day. My mom is a fairly picky eater (onions give her heartburn) so I'll be making a breakfast menu suited to her likes and needs, rather than to mine. I think that cooking a special meal for someone is the most honest, pure way to really show them how much you love them. My mom doesn't cook so I am lucky enough to be able to make her meals all the time and that's why this menu has to be different. I want it to stand out from the crowd. I'm making her a fresh fruit salad and as the main event, a breakfast sandwich. The English muffin egg sandwich has four trusted ingredients (and I know mom loves them all!): spinach, bacon, cheese, and milk. This recipe would also be great for a late night snack so check it out now and read more
This Sunday, in case you didn't know, is Mother's Day, so set your reminders and be sure to call your mom. Better yet, you could send her a heartfelt handmade card. Better still, you could make her a beautiful breakfast - which is what I'll be doing for my mom this weekend to show her how much I care. My mom isn't much of an adventurous eater, especially when it comes to breakfast. She likes things simple with delicious ingredients, so the menu will be specifically suited to her needs. The first thing I'll make for her breakfast tray will be a cool and refreshing fruit salad. The fruit salad will be served on the side in a little silver bowl. This salad has a subtle sweetness from fresh squeezed orange juice and packs a punch with a splash of Grand Marnier. A fruit salad is an ideal dish for a large brunch or an intimate one because you can easily modify the amount of fruit that goes into the salad. For the recipe, read more
I have the best mom ever. Although she doesn't cook, she is unbelievably cool, young beyond her years, and is fabulously patient. I don't want to have kids because I know I could never be as an amazing mom as she is. I like to tell her I love her everyday, but I know sometimes she may feel a little under appreciated. This year I want to do something super special for her and make her a lovely breakfast in bed. She has done so much for me in the last twenty five years (I mean she gave birth to me, that in itself should grant her a lifetime of brunches) and the very least I can do is make her a meal made with 100% love. Since she is the guest of honor - and the only guest - I'll be making her an intimate invitation inspired by the ones you used to make in elementary school. So come party with me: make your mom a handmade card to go along with your homemade meal, read more
