Host the most beautiful Mother's Day brunch. With our favorite edible spring flower and easy DIY ideas, this Mother's Day brunch celebrates the day in style. We've got everything you need to welcome spring, including recipes and floral centerpieces.


Pansies, our favorite (edible!) spring flower, are the star of this sweet Mother's Day brunch. Set up a stunning spring centerpiece by slipping fresh-snipped blooms into several small wooden vessels. We love using sake cups. 

For the easiest table setting idea, add simple chambray patterned linens and neutral stoneware to complete the look. Copper silverware adds subtle warmth and color.

Stunning Violas

Pansies, violets, and Johnny-jump-ups are all members of the same family. Violas are easy to grow and bloom best in cool spring temperatures. 

Sweet violets give candies, desserts, and liqueurs a floral flavor, while mild pansies add a pop of color to almost any dish.

Floral Tea Sandwiches

Pink Peppercorn Shortbread

These bloom-topped cookies get sweet heat from crushed pink peppercorns. For subtle floral flavor, toss chopped flowers right into the batter. 

Pretty Parfaits

Dress up a classic yogurt and granola parfait with a scattering of fresh violets. Use any combination of flavors you like, and be sure to use pesticide-free flowers.
