Hosting a brunch or a luncheon is a great way to celebrate your favorite mothers, whether that's your sister, grandmother, best friend, or spouse. Make sure to have plenty of mimosas or other light and refreshing cocktails on hand, and a mix of savory and sweet appetizers and baked goods.

You'll find some great options in the Mother's Day recipes below!
The spring weather means that flowers are blooming outside and the sun is (hopefully) shining, so take advantage of the best of the season and let yourself be inspired. Sprinkle edible blossoms like pansies or nasturtiums on serving plates, in drinks, and atop desserts. Use fresh, seasonal blooms like peonies in centerpieces and adorn your table with spring elements like floral napkins and greenery-inspired china. If it's warm enough outside, turn the meal into an alfresco party.
