Pretty Mother's Day Brunch Decor in Spring Colors

Pitcher of Peonies
Mother's Day brunch is THE brunch of the year. And we have the colorful decor that is perfect for the event. With Mother's Day centerpieces, Mother's Day place settings, and more this brunch will be one for the coloring books.

Painterly Dishes and Ombre Tablecloth

A pink and purple ombre tablecloth is the base of this Mother's Day place setting. The gorgeous dishes were plain white in their past life; but a little paint and a simple technique has upgraded them. A Mother's Day centerpiece, featuring hydrangeas and peonies, adds the finishing touch.

Brunch Buffet on a Bold Backdrop

Add color to your Mother's Day brunch buffet to set a bold and bright tone. With pink hues in the garland, flowers, and berries, colors abound.

Marbled Terra Cotta Pot Centerpiece

Narcissi and daffodils bloom out of marbleized pots in these Mother's Day centerpieces. The blue beautifully complements the yellow blossoms and matches the table linens. These transformed terra cotta pots can be made with any color of spray paint. 

Colored Glass

Wildflowers, lavender, and mint sprigs are beautiful springtime tabletop touches. Colored vases, a thrift store find, brighten up a Mother's Day brunch table.

Stamped Table Runner

A store-bought table runner gets brighter and bolder with the addition of stamped flowers. But if Mother's Day florals aren't your thing, pick a different shape; we're making our own stamps out of crafts foam. 

Vintage-Inspired Table Setting

An eclectic collection of dishes, vases, and napkins give off vintage vibes. White might not technically be a color, but white poppies pop against the pink, purple, and blue hues.

Dyed Place Mats

Mother's Day place settings start at the place mats. None of your guests will ever know that these place mats started as boring beige. Rit dye makes these mats ready for a bright Mother's Day brunch.

Dip-Dyed Menu Boards

Create color-coordinated clipboards with 1/8-inch plywood plaques, available at crafts stores. Dip the ends of the boards into a dye solution that you've tested on crafts sticks. Let dry and seal with polyurethane spray, then attach a clothespin to the top to hold notes.

Pastel Place Setting

Pretty in pink! A pink plate works with the confetti dots of the DIY table runner and the washi tape napkin ring. The table runner incorporates blues, pinks, and mint green, as does the napkin ring.

Bright Bagel Brunch

Bagels aren't known for being bright and colorful, but the rest of the meal can bring color to the table. The toppings (like lox and tomatoes), bold plates, and fun mugs all add some colorful flair to this bagel brunch. If you can't find plates in the colors you want, buy plain white and use food-safe paint.

Floral Wall Decor

Mother's Day brunch decor doesn't stop at the table. Flowers and washi tape on the wall make for delicate decor as well. Washi tape comes in hundreds of colors, so there should be quite a few options that fit your color scheme.

Pitcher of Peonies Centerpiece

Giving the gift of Mother's Day flowers can serve a dual purpose: as a thoughtful gift and as a Mother's Day centerpiece. Instead of a vase, a pitcher brings the color.
