Time is running out to finalize brunch ideas for your Mother’s Day menu! Every year we celebrate moms for all they’ve done for us over the years and Sunday brunch is the go-to for most of us. According to OpenTable noon is the most popular time to enjoy your meal with mom, it’s the biggest brunching day of the year and restaurants get 3X more reservations than any other Sunday. So if you haven’t made one yet, you may be out of luck. The good news is that you’ve still got plenty of time to pull off an amazing brunch that says, ‘I love you and you taught me well.’

Start your brunch ideas by setting a festive table. Edible arrangements make a gorgeous and mouthwatering centerpiece for the table. FoodNetwork has some fantastic options like mini cupcake topiary, gumball and fruit leather roses or a more low-key vase of marshmallow pussy willows.
