From mimosas to margaritas, make all of Mom's favorite drinks at an unforgettable Mother's Day brunch this year. Here are some tips for throwing the perfect party, along with some tasty drink recipes she and all your guests will love:
Perfect the Menu
A Mother's Day Brunch is all about thanking Mom for all the hard work she does and love she gives with an indulgent brunch where she can put her feet up and relax. Get everything ready ahead of time so she doesn't have to lift a finger.
For food, go with her favorites with an upscale twist. French toast becomes extra special when drizzled with a vanilla-almond or lemon icing and sprinkled with fresh fruit. Scrambled eggs get an upgrade when piled in taco shells and topped with salsa and sliced avocado. Cheese-and-vegetable quiches, fruit scones, pound cake, roasted potatoes with herbs and salmon-topped bagels are all great options for your Mother's Day brunch, too. Aim for a balance of sweet and salty foods - featuring some of Mom's favorite dishes! - and have plenty of fresh fruit, juice and pastries on hand too so no appetite goes unsatisfied!
Create Brunch Vibes
In addition to a stellar menu, brunch is all about the vibes - especially on Mother's Day. Aim for creating a worry-free zone that's all about relaxation and fun. If the weather permits, hold your brunch on the patio to enjoy your celebration in the sun and under the blue sky. Mother's Day brunch should be comfortable, so make sure the seating is extra inviting. You can eat at a long table set low to the ground and spread out blankets and soft cushions and ottomans for seats. Create a special seat with a bow, ribbon or bunch of balloons attached to it to give Mom her rightful throne! Bouquets or pots of fresh flowers and plants add springtime cheer to the space - pick your Mom's favorite flower and add bunches of it everywhere. The more, the merrier! You could also float large cut blooms in bowls of water for a pretty touch. Brightly colored tablecloths, placemats, paper decorations, cutlery and serving dishes make your meal as festive as possible.
Select the Frozen Concoctions
Once you've got the menu and decor all set, it's time to mix those frozen concoctions. Arrange your Margaritaville® Jimmy Buffett Anniversary Edition Key West™ Frozen Concoction Maker® close to the party space with coolers of ice, glasses and garnishes at the ready nearby.
