With Mother’s Day quickly approaching (ahem…this Sunday), we wanted to make sure you have something planned for that special mother in your life – so how about brunch and gifts for mom? HGTV puts on quite a spread for Mother’s Day as you’ll see below, but these ideas can also be tailored down or done in different colors to make the perfect brunch and gifts for your mom!
Sweet summer melons were the inspiration for the color palette of this Mother’s Day brunch. Check out these neat ideas from HGTV:
Fingerprint Table Runner
Let the kids (or pets) personalize a plain white table runner with colorful fingerprints. Mom can reuse the runner long after the Mother’s Day brunch is over.
Stop by the flower section of your local supermarket and pick up flowers that coordinate with the shades of the party, like these beautifully shaped ranunculus and white stock. Tuck the flowers into a white pail or vase, then add a strip of paper around the vase that incorporates more fingerprints!
Sweet Ribbon Accents
Simple ribbon bows add color and fun to this Mother’s Day table.
Salad, Cake, Fruit and Quiche
Make-ahead foods become event-worthy when presented with color-coordinated ribbons and card-stock food labels. A lovely cheese quiche, strawberry and spinach salad and melon cups go nicely with lemonade and fruit juices in all colors! Top it all off with a classic vanilla cake for the ultimate sweet tooth indulgence!
Continue the theme (and the melon color scheme) with this finger-painted picture frame. The kids will have a great time making these one-of-a-kind keepsakes that Mom will love, especially when you finish the gift with a favorite photo. Could also do this with pet paw prints!
These stylish bracelets are so easy to create and will make any mom smile. From fingerprints to polka dots and stripes, the kids can choose their favorite technique and customize a bracelet especially for Mom.
We hope you all have a truly fantastic Mother’s Day celebrating those special people we all call “mom!”
