Throwing the perfect Mother’s Day brunch

Mother’s Day is a time to show appreciation for all moms do, and there’s no better way than by taking the cooking off her to-do list for the day. Make lasting memories by holding a beautiful brunch in her honor. It’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate Mother’s day

Plan the menu

Brunch is the combination of the best of breakfast and lunch foods and a mix of sweet and savory foods. So think french toast and frittatas alongside soups and salads. You don’t need to include everything for an at-home brunch, but make sure to include her favorites. Brunch usually also comes with tasty cocktails, like mimosas or a Bloody Mary. 

Here’s an example menu with some of our favorite recipes:

Make sure to get cash back on groceries with the Ibotta app when you’re getting your ingredients! Not into cooking? Make sure to check the Ibotta app for cash back offers on restaurant gift cards, or deals on food delivery kits.

Decorate the table

Decorating the table for brunch can really make it feel like you went the extra mile for mom. Use a table cloth in her favorite color, break out the nice dishes, and make sure everything is sparkling clean. You can also add handmade decorations to make it feel personal. Moms of young kids love anything with their tiny handprints!

Flowers are also a lovely part of a table spread that doubles as a gift. Pick them from your garden, pick up from a local florist, or order online. We’ve got cash back deals on some of the top flower delivery services. Or put a nice flower in a bud vase on a tray and let her have breakfast in bed! 

Share your love

Make sure you spend time during the meal talking about all the great things you love about mom. You can share special memories, talk about your favorite thing she does, or go over the top and read poems that you have written for her! The most important thing is to share the love and laughter that she brings to your life. 

Finish off with the perfect gift

While not always necessary, a gift can be a nice gesture to show mom how much you appreciate what she does for you every day. Handmade gifts can help her feel special without breaking the bank. They can also be more sentimental than a new household appliance. But don’t be afraid to ask her what she wants! 

Make sure to start with Ibotta and get cash back store-wide at her favorite retailers. Or use your earnings to buy a gift card so she can pick something she really wants.
