Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we’re here to help you plan a memorable morning for that wonderful woman in your life that does so much for the family.
1. The Luxury of Sleep
For any sleep deprived mom, nothing feels more luxurious than getting a good night’s sleep and waking up feeling well rested. Be sure to keep the noise down in the kitchen and let mom get some extra shut eye.
2. Plan the Right Breakfast
Think ahead and plan the menu according to mom’s tastes. Would she prefer a latte with her breakfast, or a mimosa? Have her favorite morning time drink on hand, served in her favorite mug or glass. Is her ideal breakfast sweet or savory? Surprise her by serving her favorite breakfast items, or try a recipe from the Wesson Kitchen. Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Pancakes are a sweet start to the day, while our Breakfast Tostadas are hearty and satisfying. If you’re looking for a make-ahead option, our Maple Cinnamon Granola with Dried Fruit can be prepared ahead of time. This crunchy granola balances the right amount of sweet and spicy, and looks beautiful layered between Greek yogurt or skyr in a parfait glass. Whichever breakfast option you go with, be sure to clean up afterwards and leave no mess in the kitchen behind.
3. The Perfect Setting
Nothing says classic Mother’s Day like breakfast in bed. Place her breakfast on a serving tray so she can relax and savor a slow start to her day. Pouring her drink of choice in a travel mug reduces the chance of spillage. If the thought of crumbs in her sheets makes mom cringe, set up her breakfast at the kitchen table, or perhaps even on the porch or patio. Next, add the finishing touches. Add a pop of colour to the table with fresh flowers from the garden or florist. Finally, don’t forget to include a sweet Mother’s Day card telling her how much she means to you- extra points if home-made!
