Doing something special for mom on Mother’s Day is the best way to celebrate all of the love, support, guidance and care that a mother puts into raising her child. We’re sharing some simple Mother’s Day brunch ideas to celebrate mom.

After becoming a mom myself, I realize just how much time, effort and attention it takes! Although it’s important to appreciate mom every day (ahem to my family!), Mother’s Day is a great excuse to surprise her with something extra, just to let her know you’re thinking of her.

How to Host a Simple Mother’s Day Brunch

If you’re lucky enough to have your mother (or mothers) live near you, invite her over for a special morning bunch with coffee cocktails and treats!

I set out fruit, scones, doughnuts, brownies (that I embellished with a stencil and powdered sugar!) and made a delicious coffee cocktail, recipe below!

I’m sure with all you put mom through while growing up, she could use a good coffee cocktail!

Easy Mother’s Day Brunch Decorations

To personalize our morning brunch, I blew the dust off some old photos of her (haha, sorry mom!) to reminisce while celebrating her!

Mother’s Day Flowers

Flowers are everything for Mother’s Day! Use a local florist or order flowers online for decor and beautiful take-home presents for both moms! Here are some good online sources for Mother’s Day flower:

Easy DIY with Photos

We also did a quick DIY and added a photo of each mom to the front of the vase! This is such a simple way to add personalization to a Mother’s Day brunch.

Dig up an old photo of mom and using string, gently tie it to the front of the vase.

This is the perfect gift if you have a mom and mother-in-law who always say “Don’t get me anything”.
