5 Tips for Throwing an Easy Mother's Day brunch | CatchMyParty.com

Laura Aguirre from Laura’s Little Party is here with some easy tips for putting together a beautiful Mother’s Day brunch celebration, any mother will love!

Every year I love to put together a small Mother’s Day gathering for a few of my girlfriends. I celebrate with my friends the day before Mother’s Day so all my Mom friends can celebrate with their loved ones the day of.

I love planning an outdoor event. There’s something about sipping & nibbling with everyone, while enjoying the birds & trees in my own backyard.

If you’re having trouble thinking of what to plan, hopefully my tips will help point you in the right direction!

And I’m sure you’ll love how Catch My Party can be your one stop party site for party ideas, printables, and a party supplies! I know I do!

Tip 1 – Free Mother’s Day Printables

I start my party planning process by looking for a printable set. I love going to the Catch My Party free printables page. They always have sets I love.

This year, I’m using these “Chandelier” Mother’s Day free printables. The colors are fabulous. The set had everything I needed: straw flags, cupcake toppers, a banner, and even digital paper to add my own personal touches – plus so much more!

And don’t be afraid to use the printables for other things. For example, I took a water bottle label and added it to a piece of digital paper and made a Happy Mother’s Day sign. I placed it in a yellow frame and instantly added a special touch to my dessert table.

TIP 2 – Party Decor

One of my favorite things about throwing parties is picking out the decor. From plates and napkins, to ribbon & doilies, the Catch My Party Store has all the latest party supplies for throwing a super sweet party!

Tip 3 – Party Menu

When planning your  menu, you’ll need to keep in mind the time of day your guests will be there. This year I planned a mid-morning event, so my menu consisted of cupcakes, yogurt parfaits, blueberry shortcakes, and iced tea. I really enjoy easy menu items. And everything on my dessert table was store bought, and super easy to put together!

Cupcakes: These pretty pink cupcakes are strawberry filled! Talk about delicious. I was thrilled that they happened to match my party decor. Top with a cupcake topper, and you’re ready to party!

Yogurt parfaits: I filled sundae cups with vanilla yogurt, and topped with fresh strawberries, and blueberries. So easy!

Blueberry shortcake: I took little shortcake pound cakes and put them inside ice cream cups. I added whipped cream, and topped them off with blueberries. A light treat that was super simple! I added little flag toppers that I made from the straw flag printable by cutting them out, and taping them to sandwich picks.

Tip 4 – Table setting

I wanted to make my table pretty, and most of all, inviting. I knew the cheery colors from the printables, and pretty party supplies would do the trick!

Table cover: At first I had trouble trying to find just the right table cover. When you need a quick solution like I did, you can always use fabric from your local fabric store! I found a nice, yellow chevron print fabric from JoAnn fabric and craft stores. I had them cut it to fit my 6’ table – it turned out to be 2 1/2 yards.

Centerpiece: Flowers are always a nice touch to add for a centerpiece, but this time, I couldn’t pass up the pretty faux greenery that I spotted at Target. It came in a nice white vase that looked nice against the yellow chevron fabric.

Place setting: I found the perfect shade of Caribbean blue plates, with a chevron pattern, over at Catch My Party’s shop. I paired it with a small yellow plate by stacking it on top. I also found some pretty paper doilies that I placed on top of the yellow plates. This worked well for any little treats to add to the guest’s plates.

I wrapped polka dotted napkins with napkin rings that I made from digital paper in the printable set. To add a little extra touch to the napkin rings, I added another color of digital paper by punching out a flower shape, and attaching it to the napkin ring.

Tip 5 – Dessert table

I have a favorite piece of furniture that I use for just about every one of my parties. I enjoy painting it to match my party’s theme. I found a pretty shade of watermelon spray paint by Krylon, and went to town on my buffet stand. It came out beautifully, and couldn’t have matched my party decor any more perfectly.

I cut & assembled the Mother’s Day banner {from the printable set} with ribbon, and added it to the front of the table. I then started to add my cupcake stand, and cake plates. There is no right or wrong way to set up your dessert table. I try to make it look appealing, while having it flow nicely with the rest of the party.
