Mothers day is May 8th this year, are you ready? Are you in need of an idea for how to treat mom on Mothers Day that will not break your budget? How about indulging mom with a delightful home cooked brunch and a special tea pot for her to take home at the end of the day.
Making moms eyes sparkle with a beautifully set table is as easy as pulling out that lacey table cloth and placing a vase of fresh flowers in the center for her to enjoy. Dig out the fine china; what have you been waiting for? This is that special occasion you reserve for only the best. Remember this is your mom, so make your table sparkle with love. She will go home knowing how much you love and appreciate her.
Prepare a mom friendly brunch that will have her telling all her friends what amazing offspring she has. Start the brunch with a large bowl of fresh fruit and crepes dusted with powdered sugar. Then serve mom a crust less quiche accompanied by warm fresh baked rolls. Don't forget to fill that special tea pot with stepping hot loose leaf tea such as an English breakfast or an Earl Grey.
Now sit back and relax enjoying your cup of tea and the wonderful company in your presence today. As your day with mom comes to an end remind her how much you love and appreciate her and that every day with your mother is mothers' day to you.
