Last week, I wrote a guide that included 15 perfect DIY and inexpensive gift ideas for Mother’s Day, which is *cough* this Sunday *cough*, so it is time to nail down your plans for the day so as to make your mother feel like the treasure she is. Today, we’re back with more ideas to make Mother’s Day extra-special, while simultaneously focusing on keeping the event as inexpensive to celebrate as possible. Running out with your family for a boozy day-long brunch isn’t the smartest way to stretch your dollars, so we’re advocating that you whip up a homemade spread. An at-home brunch is a fantastic way to show your mom how much you love her without having to spend a lot of money. It’s also a chance to show off (or brush up) your cooking and entertaining skills. Below is a compilation of 12 of the essential items that every celebratory Mother’s Day brunch should have, from salted lattes and flowers to sticky buns and waffles.
Obviously you don’t need to make ALL this food, but it’s generally wise to select both a sweet and savory dish, and pair it with a hot, creamy cup of coffee and a bright, crisp champagne cocktail.
