If you're looking to get your friends together and celebrate Mom in style, then do it with a brunch! Aside from good company, brunch is the perfect way to toast to your leading lady. Knowing that no two moms are alike, we've created three tablescapes — casual, elegant, and outdoors — to make Mother's Day special. Find the one that's right for you (and Mom) below!
The Elegant Brunch
An elegant brunch will set this Mother's Day apart from the rest. Keeping the bright colors mute, we chose a neutral palette of golds and creams beginning with the tablecloth ($60). Metallic touches are key, incorporated through gold-rimmed plates ($50), gold flatware ($270), and a speckled gold tray ($158). Since we're going all out, monogrammed glasses ($18, originally $50) seemed fitting, as well as stone napkin rings ($17) and a crystal vase ($50, originally $59) filled with tulips or her favorite flower.
The Casual Brunch
Think of the casual brunch as one step above breakfast in bed. For this type of tablescape, it has to be something where guests feel comfortable and Mom feels special. Make any table fit for a special occasion by covering it with a bright, patterned tablecloth ($36-$90). Then add complementary pops of color through patterned plates ($6) and pink napkins ($28). Continue to layer on the color with quirky napkin rings ($17), confetti ($10), and dotted glassware ($54). A bright pink pitcher ($36) will showcase mimosas perfectly, and pink serving utensils ($35) give plastic forks a run for their money. Lastly, ditch the stuffy flowers, and scatter these tiny succulents ($34) around to complete your tablescape.
The Outdoor Brunch
Aside from being stylish, an outdoor brunch has to be functional — after all, it is outside! Simplicity is key and starts with something textured like a linen runner ($45) and napkins ($36). Add subtle color with blush plates ($5) and glasses ($6) fit for homemade Bloody Marys. A wooden box ($18) makes bringing food from the kitchen easy, and we consider these rope utensils ($18) essential. Lastly, complete the look with patterned seat cushions ($10) and a cute cake stand ($7) for pastries.
