Mother’s Day is next month so it is time to start making plans for your celebration. Personally, brunch is my favorite meal, so we love to have a Mother’s Day Brunch. Today I am sharing some of my favorite tips for Hosting Mother’s Day Brunch. For Mother’s Day I am all about keeping it simple so you can enjoy the day too. In this post I am sharing tips from food to decorations.
Tips for Hosting Mother’s Day Brunch
Food for Mother’s Day
Let’s start with the food because it is one of the most important parts of brunch. Part of why I love brunch is because everything goes from breakfast food to dessert. I recommend picking food that fits into these three categories:
- Prep Ahead of Time
- Easy to Make
- Fresh and Colorful Food
- Mini Foods
Prep Ahead of Time
For brunch some of our favorite options that you can prep the night before including:
Easy to Make
I am always looking for food that is easy to make, but also taste homemade. I am excited to partner with Grown in Idaho as they introduce their line of mashed potatoes.
Grown In Idaho frozen potato products are perfect for busy families like ours. They offer 9 varieties of mashed potatoes that you can find at your local Kroger store nationwide. They are made with 100% real Idaho Potatoes. The potatoes come in portionable frozen potato medallions.
You can make these homestyle mashed potatoes anytime in just minutes in the microwave or on your stovetop. I love that you can make as much as you would like with none of the prep or mess. So, if you are hosting your immediate family or your extended family this year you can make the right amount. We made their Homestyle Mashed Potatoes Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes. They are so delicious, creamy and rich. I will never go back to making them from scratch.
Fresh and Colorful Food
I always like to include a mix of fruits and vegetables. Some of my favorites include:
- A big salad with this Poppy Seed Dressing
- Another family favorite is this Tomato Corn Salad
Every food is even more fun to eat as a mini or individual size.
- Egg Cups
- Loaded Mashed Potatoes
Self Serve Drink StationCreate a self serve drink station. Since it is brunch I like that to include a coffee maker and a signature drink. For this brunch we also did a strawberry margarita that we could make by the pitcher.
Mother’s Day is all about celebrating the mothers in our life. So, customize your brunch by personalizing your event with printable like this one. Have your kids share all about their moms.
Paper Plates and Simple Flower Centerpiece
No one wants to do dishes on Mother’s Day. And now that paper goods look so good, they are the perfect addition to your Mother’s Day. I love adding flowers to the table too. Hydrangeas are my favorite because they are beautiful, simple, inexpensive and can last for weeks.
