While I am sure your mom, grandmother, or the woman you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day would love a beautiful gift chosen by you, I believe the time we spend with them along with words of love and appreciation are often times the most cherished gifts of all.
One way to give her the gift of time together is to host a pretty Mother’s Day brunch in her honor. Create a menu inspired by her brunch favorites and a table filled with pretty feminine tableware. A few of my favorite tableware details perfect for Mother’s Day include pretty plates, coordinating cloth napkins, woven placemats, a statement pitcher and colored glassware. Plus a few finishing touches that bring everything to life, like botanical knives and floral teaspoons, a candle or two for added warmth, and, of course, fresh flowers. A card or two labeled for mom are also a perfect finishing touch to the brunch table.
