More (last-minute) ideas for Mother’s Day weekend

via BrittaNickel

A lot to celebrate this week, but can you tell that I’m particularly partial to this holiday? Now that I’m a mother myself, I see that I didn’t give it enough due for my own while I was growing up. I’m sure she would have loved a peaceful breakfast-in-bed. If you didn’t find inspiration in the gift guide, here are a few other ideas you can take to make your own to make the day special for your mother or your partner this Sunday…

For portable breakfast at its finest, try eggs en cocotte; festive hash brown nests; or a quick-to-bake frittata (perfect for impromptu breakfasts-in-bed).


Or if Mom has a sweet tooth in the morning try a pear and blackberry galette with vanilla crème fraîche; perfectly presentable stacked granola; or vegan sticky buns for an earth-conscious mama.

Nothing says love like fresh-squeezed juice, and this citrus blend would start mom’s day off on the right foot; a raspberry-mint sparkler is beautifully springy; or here are the best practices for a classic mimosa.

via West Elm

Breakfast is prettier on a pretty tray. Love this gorgeous reclaimed wood creation; this West Elm option is chic and functional; or get really fancy with a vintage-inspired gold and mirror number. And if you’re too late to order something online, use a sturdy box-lid and line it with a large cloth napkin.

Market Basket

Wrap baked goods in a basket that becomes the gift, like this simple round basket with a subtle pattern; a colorful fair-trade treasure that will support another woman, too; or a farmer’s market basket she can use again and again.

Soft robes and blankets encourage lazy morning—include something bright and cheery that will last a lifetime; the coziest sweater fit for classy all-day wear (on sale too!); or a gorgeously handmade quilt for the whole bed. No doubt a local store carries one she’d appreciate if you’re too late for online shopping.

Flowers can say exactly what you want Mom to know! Use pink carnations to express gratitude; sunflowers for adoration; and jasmine to remind her she’s both graceful and elegant. Choose a cute vase to bring the arrangement together.

Or write a little note to tell Mom what you love about her, and then leave her to enjoy a morning of comfy, pampered, peaceful solitude.

Have a great weekend!

P.S. There’s nothing like a fancy breakfast in bed; and if you’re not a mom, you can still treat yourself.
