Plan a beautiful Outdoor Mother’s Day Brunch for the special mother in your life and make her feel special!
Easter has already passed (which seemed to come unusually early this year) which means Mother’s Day isn’t far behind. Why not make your mother feel special this year or even your group of girlfriends who are mothers with an outdoor Mother’s Day brunch to celebrate them?
Hosting your own brunch or party doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. I was able to put this tablescape and recipes together in about 30 minutes. The secret is to decorate while the food is cooking to make the best use of your time.
OUTDOOR MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH
Let’s get this celebration outside in the fresh air and sunlight. That will change the entire atmosphere getting all the Moms to just relax and enjoy the fresh sunshine against their skin.
For my dishes, I used the crystal cut line from Chinet. It is absolutely gorgeous with the appearance of expensive fine china, but is so much easier to clean up when all you have to do is toss it. Plus you don’t have to worry about any of your grandmother’s fine china getting broken that you have had for years.
For brunch, I usually try to keep the food pretty simple but still delicious with finger foods and then there is no need for cutlery. For the napkins, I picked up a pack of cloth napkins from The Pioneer Woman that I spread throughout the table for décor. You guests could then pick them up once everyone starts eating. There is just something special about a cloth napkin in my opinion that makes it feel extra special.
For the food, I put together several finger food items for a little sweet and a little salty. When you think brunch, don’t worry about supplying a ton of food. You just need to serve some light refreshments so everyone can get together and enjoy themselves.
I took 2 cake plates and stacked mini powdered and chocolate donuts on them. I think it’s just adorable like a donut cake.
I also prepared a cheese and cracker platter using cream cheese spread topped with a pepper jelly. I then laid an assortment of entertainment crackers around the plate. And trust me this combination of cream cheese and pepper jelly is absolutely delicious.
The last recipe is one that has always been a favorite of mine. And that would be SAUSAGE BALLS. They are the perfect party good. I recently found a new twist on these little balls of goodness from my friend Jessica at Fantabulosity. She combined the sausage with crumbled Cheeze-It Grooves in the hot and spicy flavor. Those are also my favorite snack food which made this even better.
(If you don’t like spicy foods, they also have them in a variety of flavors to choose from.)
Add a few fresh flowers for extra décor and there you have it! That’s really all there is to it. Invite those special Moms in your lives over and shower them with goodness.
