Mother’s Day is the second Sunday of May. And while that may seem far away now, the last thing you want to do is be scrambling to find a special gift the day before. This year, we suggest a classic and thoughtful celebration: a Mother’s Day brunch! Below are our tips to make sure your brunch goes off without a hitch.
Starting with a plan is the best way to ensure everything goes smoothly. When preparing to host a Mother’s Day brunch, consider some of the following questions:
- How many people are attending?
- Are there any menu restrictions?
- What time works best for everyone?
- What is the menu going to be?
- What can be prepared ahead of time?
- What should I get to decorate? (Hint: flowers are always popular!).
As you go through and complete each part of the plan, you can begin compiling a schedule to make this Mother’s Day brunch the best one yet!
Tip: this includes cleaning!
Set Up a Self-Serve Station
Having a self-serve station allows you to prepare ahead and ensures everyone receives the amount of food they want when they want it. The perfect spot for your buffet is a kitchen island– it allows everything to be displayed and is easily accessible by all.
Don’t forget about the beverages! Whether you set out a “Mom-Osa” station with bubbly and juices or a coffee bar, having everything out and easily accessible is a great way to make everyone feel comfortable.
You want to ensure everyone has a spot to sit, enjoy their brunch, and connect with each other. The best way to achieve that is to have comfortable seating with space to spread out! For that, items like an extension table are perfect: they can be small for everyday use but can be expanded with leaves to fit your party!
