This Mother’s Day, Treat Mom to Breakfast in Bed
Mom’s everywhere get up every morning of the year to make breakfast for the family and get everyone off to where they need to be. Show the Mother in your life how much you appreciate her by bringing her breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day. Here are some ideas that will help make it special.
The Menu – Creating a thoughtful breakfast for Mom does not have to be complicated, nor does it require cooking (unless you want to, of course!). If your Mom enjoys pastries, you could pick up fresh croissants, danishes, bagels or muffins at your local bakery. Arrange them on a plate with fresh fruit and perhaps yogurt and you have a nice, simple breakfast. Or, if you’re a cook, try eggs benedict or a fluffy omelet.

The Beverage – Mom’s favorite beverage should be included, whether it’s coffee, tea, a Bloody Mary or a flute of champagne. If it’s coffee or tea, be sure to bring cream and sweetener if you know she enjoys it. You could also include a small juice glass with fresh squeezed orange juice.
The Tray – A serving tray with which you can serve breakfast to Mom adds a special touch. Consider using a linen napkin to make it elegant. A small flower in a bud vase would also be nice. And don’t forget a Mother’s Day card!
Finishing Touches – When you surprise Mom with breakfast in bed, bring along her favorite magazine, the newspaper or the remote control. Let her know that this is “her time” to relax and enjoy her special treat.
Celebrate the special Mom in your life with breakfast in bed. She will remember it the next time she jumps out of bed to help your family start the day!
