I love a brunch for Mother’s Day– delicious, foodie-worthy bites, some yummy cocktails, and great company. What’s not to like? This year for Mother’s Day I’m prepping fab three course lunch that can be served family style and is totally easy to pull off. I made all three of these dishes for the shoot! I wanted a menu that was so yummy, and complex enough to be interesting but not at all your run-of-the-mill brunch vibe. I decided to make Apple Glow Pancakes. (stay tuned for this description!), Fried Egg Toasts With Herb Butter, and a Sweet and Salty Salad. I’m going to be sharing all three of the recipes individually today so be on the lookout.
In terms of decor, I was going for a really feminine and floral vibe– lots of pinks, whites, and a beautiful china shape with a gold edge. I balanced the feminine with a cool linen pinstripe napkin and a small bloom tucked under it at each place. I think that Mother’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate the divine feminine within each of us– no matter whether we are Mothers or not. And for me, pink is where it’s at! I just love fresh flowers and wanted to mix a few of my favorite blooms for the occasion. A white dress topped off the ethereal vibe.
