  • Easy strawberry lemon mimosa - a refreshing brunch recipe

    “When I stopped seeing my mother through the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself.” – Nancy Friday. Through the years, I’ve come to realize that while my mom is no longer with me, she is in everything I do and was certainly the template for the mother I am today. For me, celebrating Mother’s Day isn’t about the girls showering me with special treatment, but about embracing each moment I have with my family and raising them to be confident, compassionate, honest, and grateful. Mother’s Day is not just a day to celebrate, but be celebrated. To make Mother’s Day entertaining enjoyable for the hostess as well, I’m excited to share a few “almost effortless” entertaining ideas and my favorite mimosa recipe in partnership with Teleflora. Whether you’re celebrating with your mother, daughters, sisters or friends I want to make it as easy as it is beautiful to host Mother’s Day brunch, even for mom herself.

    Setting the table is as easy as 1-2-3 – you can fill a table for 6-8 with just 3 beautiful flower arrangements, which double as Mother’s Day gifts. I selected the Enchanted Cottage Bouquets, which are professionally arranged and hand delivered by a local florist {one of my favorites!}

    For Mother’s Day, I suggest keeping it as simple as possible, using your everyday dishes in lieu of china to avoid having to hand wash dishes.

    Add interest to your table by staggering your flatware and mixing and matching your glassware rather than coordinating.

    Set up a self serve mimosa bar so that you can relax and enjoy. Just fill juice carafes with your juices of choice, served with champagne or sparkling grape juice and accent with a beautiful arrangement, like this Garden Pitcher Bouquet. Complete the mimosa bar with glassware and fruit garnishes.
