9 Tips for Planning a Mother’s Day Brunch

  1. Plan your menu from top to bottom.  Do NOT try to wing it in the morning
  2. Set out everything you’re going to need the night before.  Dishes, decorations, etc…
  3. Choose some dishes that can be made ahead of time.  Including at least one of these in your menu makes things much easier (overnight French toast, an egg dish or scones)
  4. Make one main dish and keep the rest of the food extremely simple
  5. Fix up Bloody Mary or Caesar mix or the juice for mimosas the night before
  6. Make sure any fruit you serve is ripe
  7. A pretty flower arrangement is really the only decoration you need
  8. Keep your place setting simple but elegant
  9. If someone ask what to bring let them bring something (champagne or croissants)
