From mornings spent sipping tea in the garden, indulging in delicious homemade Brunch spreads on the patio, or curating activities that will bring plenty of laughter and joy – here are some inspiring ways to make this Mother’s Day one she won’t forget!
Delicious and Easy Smoothies
Almond Bliss Smoothie is an excellent starter for the festivities of the day! This smoothie is very filling and well-served in shot glasses to your guests as they arrive to whet their appetite.
This Blueberry Smoothie is packed with antioxidants and tastes delicious, especially blueberry honey! Since there is much on the menu, a short shot of a smoothie is a good idea to leave room for Brunch.
Are we thinking Boozy Brunch? Well, so are we!
Nothing wrong with getting mom a little tipsy on her day. We can rename the event mom’s boozy Brunch! You could approach the drinks in small elegant shot glasses to guests as they arrive as a signature drink.
Our Blossoms+Bourbon line inspired this Blossoms+Bourbon Cocktail. The line is fresh, clean, and bright with citrus and geranium bourbon. We thought it would be a great idea to come up with a drink in its honor and created the Blossoms+Bourbon Cocktail.
Fruit-filled drinks are perfect in warm weather. They are refreshing and make a beautiful presentation. Try this Fruity Bee Collins, perfectly timed for spring.
This Moscow Mule is our latest creation and will hit the spot for Mother’s Day Brunch.
Mother’s Day Brunch Overnight Oats
Chocolate Honey Overnight Oats can be prepared ahead of time – and they keep well for a few days in the fridge, too!
With fresh-picked strawberries in season, this may be the perfect venue for our Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats. You could make these up overnight and serve them in small 2oz glass bowls with tiny spoons as an appetizer.
Mother’s Day Brunch Pastries for Mom
Keep the theme going for mother’s day brunch in high strawberry season. These Strawberry Scones are a delicious treat any time of year, especially on Mother’s Day!
This ‘Unbread’ recipe is a nut and seed bread made without any leavening agents and is one of my new favorites. Try it!
Honey Banana Bread is easy to make the night before, and everyone loves it. You can make this recipe in muffin form; if you have many guests for Mother’s Day Brunch, this may be a great idea.
You can make her this Southern Cornbread she’ll never eat in her whole life. Complete with honey butter.
Balance it with a Salad.
We have a few tried and true salads in our arsenal. Make your favorite one and serve it with this fantastic honey lemon vinaigrette. You can even quickly marinate fish or chicken with this same recipe!
This Kale Salad is the best and most surprising salad we’ve made. Another recipe you can make the night before Mother’s Day is to be well-organized for the day ahead. Try these Honey Pickled Beets on this Salad.
Spinach and fruit salad is lovely and light – so is our watermelon feta salad. It’s excellent any time of the day but is especially at home on a brunch spread.
Our friend Karlen shared this Asian Chicken and Noodle Salad Recipe, and it’s been a hit repeatedly in our family.

You can never go wrong with chocolate, and this crazy sexy chocolate brownie sundae is a crowd-pleaser. If mom is on a health kick, you can serve up chocolate so that nobody has to know it’s good for them with our beetroot brownies. Another great way to finish this meal is with a lovely healthy Cherry Cobbler Recipe. You can use any combination of fruit in this recipe, so be creative, primarily if it supports a theme for the day!
