Quick and Easy Ideas for a Mother’s Day Brunch

Quick and Easy Ideas for a Mother's Day BrunchMother’s Day is in just a couple short days and we all know how important it is to celebrate the mothers in our lives. I’ve been traveling this week, so my planning for the Mother’s Day brunch I’m putting on has been a little lacking. But for those who find themselves scrambling to throw something together for dear ol’ mom, fear not. I’ve got a few fast ideas that will help you pull together a Mother’s Day brunch on the cheap.

First, set the table. Because I’m a little travel weary, I know I’m not going to be up for the clean-up that goes along with real linens, silverware and tableware. (And because I’m a mom myself, I’m cutting myself a little slack as a Mother’s Day present to myself.) I made a trip to Target and found some bright and colorful table decor for our morning feast that will clean up fast and didn’t set me back a ton of cash. No, I don’t normally go for paper plates, but these guys were so bright and cheerful, I fell for them.
