Are you hosting a Mother’s Day brunch this year? If so, make it spectacular with these special touches and helpful suggestions.
1 – Fresh Flowers for Your Centerpiece
No matter what flowers you choose, they will be the centerpiece of your beautiful table setting so definitely a worthwhile investment. Also have an additional vase ready in case your guests bring flowers as a hostess gift. For idea’s on unique ways to display cut flowers or great tips on how to make them look their best visit What Your Fresh-Cut Flowers Want You To Know! and “Inspired Ideas For Fresh Cut Flowers: Thinking Outside of the Vase”
2 – Display Your Napkins in a Unique and Appealing Way
If you are using linen napkins there are all sorts of fun ways to fold them into beautiful designs. I love this idea of adding a string of pearls or adding some flower or ribbon. For more great ideas visit Buzz Feed’s “28 Creative Napkin-Folding Techniques” by Peggy Wang
3 – Shine Up The Cutlery, Crystal and Glassware
It only takes a few minutes to make sure your silverware and glassware are spot free and it’s the things your guests don’t see that matter as much as what they do. 3V Venosta has a great visual guide “How To Set The Table” if you want to make sure you have your silverware and glassware properly set out. If you’re using silver, see these Easy tips & tricks to care for your silver and prevent tarnishing.
4 – Be Creative With Your Presentation
Not everything has to be served on a plate. It’s always fun to serve family favorites in a new way and sometimes just changing how or what you serve it in can make all the difference.
5 Tell Her How Much You Love Here and Why
It is always great for a mother to hear the words I Love You but it is also nice to hear the reasons why. Sharing some happy memories or telling your mother what you love most about her can be the biggest gift of all!
