There's no doubt about it—moms are special. They make our world go 'round! Celebrate all of the mothers in your life this year with more than just flowers (although, those are certainly well loved too!), and host a brunch to remember. Fill the house with family and treat every mom with the love and attention they've always so generously given. We've pulled together a few ideas for how to make this happen:
Show love in the details
Make the day special in every detail. Welcome the guests of honor with coffee, tea and pastries for appetizers. Create lovely details with complementing personalized mother's day themed cups, tea favors and napkins that everyone will adore. Not only are these additions useful and perfect for tying your theme together, they will also show mom the time and attention that went into making her day great.
Another fantastic Mother's Day brunch detail is to have a sweet homemade gift prepared. We all know she's still saving those finger paintings from your preschool years, so any handmade touch will be treasured. This list of homemade gift ideas for Mother's Day is a great place to start!
Set the table!
Another detail to your Mother's Day brunch should be an eye capturing table setting. There is something about a table set to the nines that really takes an event to the next level. Laying out each setting and adding a splash of color with a floral runner or centerpiece is a simple way to make a meal into a party. Consider adding something a little extra like a rose next to their place card for each spot meant for a mom you are celebrating. We love the look of this personalized scallop napkin folded into a champagne glass!
Make every bite a treat
Go beyond basic with your food choices! After all, chances are mom has seen (and made) it all. Consider adding extra flair to your dishes with special serving presentation. Aren't these stacks of mini pancakes topped with strawberries and drink stirrers turned kebob sticks totally adorable!?

Send guests home with a special something that has always said "mom"
Is there a recipe that your mom is simply famous for? Whip it up and share with party guests as the perfect Mother's Day party favor! Create cute gift tags to go with and maybe even share the recipe to pass it on in her honor.
