Moms and mother-figures deserve appreciation every single day, but in these current times, even more has been added to our plates. For Mother’s Day this year, we’re sharing how you can create a lowkey brunch at home to show your love and gratitude.

A brunch at home doesn’t need to be overly-complicated.  You just need a few extra touches to make it feel special!

The Menu

Pancakes-either your favorite recipe or you can pick-up a great mix like the one we used from Jon & Vinny’s or a homemade recipe, like Ally’s husband, Steven lovingly adapted from Martha Stewart.

-Frittata- we love this one from Giada, but you can also create your own using produce you have in the fridge!

-Fresh Berries

-Mimosa Bar: bubbles from Helen’s Wines and a mix of her favorite juices or mix it up and try some of the seasonal options from Pressed Juicery–we love the blood orange kumquat!

You can also support a local business and take advantage of one of the many Mother’s Day Brunch menus being offered around Los Angeles

-Joan’s on Third

-Lady & Larder

-Akasha

-The Arthur J

-Redbird

The Look

Every Friday our home-school desk transforms back to our dining table for the weekend with a few upgrades:

-table runner or linen in her favorite color

-linen napkins or pretty paper (bonus points prolonging the next load of laundry)

-chargers or pretty dinner plates

-flatware & glassware-anything that’s not your “everyday”

-And for the tunes, here is one of our go-to playlists for any Sunday Brunch from Bob Gail Music:
