I love Mother’s Day! After all, along with being showered with love and gifts, I don’t have to clean up the kitchen. A Mother’s Day brunch at home allows you to avoid the crowds while enjoying yummy food. Here is a delicious Mother’s Day brunch menu along with some other ideas.
If you have some flower cookie cutters and some frosting, you can quickly turn a basic pancake into a work of art. Simply make your favorite pancakes (not too thick or it will be tough to cut) and then cut them out into a flower. Next, take one cup of powdered sugar and one tablespoon of water (or milk) and stir it all together. I used one drop of red food coloring to make it pink. Then, I spread it on the petals. Next, I added another two drops of food coloring to the icing to make a darker pink for the center. If you want, you can provide your guests with different frosting colors (or maybe just the kids) so they can decorate their own.
Bacon and Broccoli Scramble
I love the hearty combination of eggs and bacon in this dish. The broccoli gives it a healthy touch. For each person, you will need two eggs, a piece of cooked bacon (broken into pieces) and ¼ cup of broccoli. I used frozen broccoli florets and hickory smoked bacon. Cook your bacon and broccoli according to the package directions. Then, beat two eggs in a bowl and pour into buttered pan. Stir the eggs around and then fold in your broccoli and bacon.
Triple Berry Fruit Salad with Honey Drizzle
This is so easy but so delicious! Take your three favorite berries. I used a pint of each: raspberries, blueberries and strawberries (but blackberries would be great too). Wash your berries and cut up your strawberries. Then, spoon the berries into a cute tiny cup. I used sky blue for contrast. Finally, drizzle the top with honey. This is a sweet ending to any meal.
Other Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas
Colors can make your Mother’s Day brunch table pop. I love a sky blue tablecloth with pink plates. For a centerpiece, try some pink peonies in a vase. Another lovely idea is to use grey and white chevron with sunny yellow accents. For a simple place setting accent you can glue each guest’s picture into a paper muffin cup liner. Then glue the liner onto a striped paper straw so it looks like a flower.
I hope these Mother’s Day brunch ideas help you have a great Mother’s Day!
