Spend less time cooking and more time with Mom this Mother’s Day. Below are five tips for the perfect brunch—plus seven recipes that take only minutes to make and can be enjoyed at the table or in bed. Just don’t forget the mimosas!
1. Keep it simple.
Presentation is everything, but don’t make it too complicated. After all, you are eating in bed. Stick to the basics with neutral plates, a crisp napkin, a chrome tray, and just a sprig of flowers. We suggest fresh lavender or heather.
3. Mix salty and sweet.
It’s a classic combination for a reason. We paired our crusty croissants with salty ricotta and sweet jam. Um, yum!
4. Make it bite-sized.
Consider ditching the silverware altogether by serving small bites instead. We like pancake bites that are layered with Nutella and strawberries, or strawberry shortcake stackers with cake, cream, and strawberries.
5. Don’t forget the paper.
Put down your phones and stash away your tablets. Feel better yet? Now pull out the day’s New York Post and get reading! Because every breakfast needs the perfect reading material.
