1. The Porcupine
Mimosas are so last weekend. For the best brunch of the year impress Mom with a pitcher of Porcupine. Prosecco and pale ale provide the bubbles for this pineapple-flavored punch. Rosemary sprigs and pineapple wedges are fresh and tasty garnishes.
2. Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs
Get the party started with bites worth waking up for. Jalapeno popper deviled eggs have the breakfast aspects of egg and smoky bacon with the appetizer tinge of poppable spicy peppers.
3. Amped-Up Ice
Take all of your beverages to the next level. Freeze fresh fruit, edible flowers, or fresh herbs in your ice cubes for a flavorful springtime flair. Just pop them out of the ice cube tray as your guests grab their first drink. Easy breezy!
4. Make-Ahead Cinnamon Rolls
Mashed potatoes are the secret ingredient to these homemade cinnamon rolls. They add even more ooey-gooey deliciousness than expected, and you can pause the bread-making process for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator. There are many ways to top these rolls—with icing, cream cheese icing or a brown butter drizzle—and we have the recipes for all three!
5. Fresh Fruit Salad
Fresh fruit is a Sunday brunch must. Citrus, like oranges and blood oranges, are amplified with a touch of fennel. If the fruit is peeled and cut Saturday night, all that's left to be done in the morning is to toss everything together. Other recipes feature persimmons and a watermelon salad.
6. Personalized Playlist
Turn your Mother's Day brunch into a party with some of Mom's favorite tunes. Use your favorite music to either prepare a playlist ahead of time or find a favorite station. Bluetooth speakers make the music easy to hear for everyone.
7. Ham Souffle Roll
Prepared in a shallow baking pan, this souffle-meets-casserole combo can remain in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before baking. Parsley sauce adds a pop of freshness, both in flavor and color.
8. Upcycled Glasses
Mother's Day flowers are a must. This simple springtime showcase turns simple drinking glasses into vases. Seasonal blooms, such as dahlias, tulips, and peonies pop in vases filled with water.
9. Chocolate Waffle Cake
The best brunches have the perfect mix of sweet and savory. Lean into the sweet with this decadent waffle cake. Layers upon layers of chocolaty goodness are topped with fresh berries. Be sure to add this dessert to your Mother's Day menu.
10. Table Decor
Gather special photos of you and Mom to display at the table. You can do photo transfers to create art on coasters, or transfer them onto upcycled glass jars and cups. In addition to being fun decor, photos of you and mom can be unique Mother's Day gifts.
