I love how this Mother’s Day brunch turned out! The table was set under the canopy of large seagrape tree nestled in the patio area by the fence, overlooking the lake. You could hear the various birds singing in the distance along with the wind chimes as the sun peeked through the branches giving off a soft, warm glow. It was uncharacteristically breeze for this time of year making our brunch magical and very enjoyable. Had my daughter been with us, it would have been a picture perfect afternoon.
Brunch was all of our favorites along with classic mimosas and the best Old-Fashioned Orange Buttercream Cake spelling out MOM in mini letters. Here’s my post on how I made my MOM Mini Letter Cakes if you are curious. It was a lot of fun and they look absolutely adorable! I hope you enjoy the pictures and draw inspiration for your own Mother’s Day celebration! This brunch menu would also be lovely for Easter, Valentine’s Day or any special brunch with family and friends!
