casual Mother’s Day brunch

Since becoming a mom I’ve honestly struggled a bit with how do I enjoy Mother’s Day myself while making sure that my mom (and a few years ago, my grandmother) also feels special. In prior years we’ve always ordered from a restaurant and had a picnic at a local park. No cooking, no clean-up and no pre-cleaning the house. It was a win, win. But this spring, the weather here in Ohio has been in one word… wet.  And it’s due to rain again this Sunday.

So this year my mom and I are going to work together to host a late brunchyes, typically that would be lunch… except we’re still serving brunch foods. Stay with me! {wink} And don’t you love that casual tabletop?! It’s completely lovely, yet completely uncomplicated.

So here’s what I’ve come up with: bacon, egg and toast cups (our protein), french toast kabobs (my kids love anything on a stick, plus there is a bit of fruit!), fast raspberry scones (these just look too yummy and it has the word “fast” in the title), and for dessert peanut butter candy bar brownies (I mean, the name alone! I just couldn’t resist!)

I hope you have a beautiful, stress-free and fun-filled Mother’s Day and as always, I hope you’re inspired!
