Mother’s Day is a lovely time to celebrate the impact and contribution of your mom. Would you like to spoil her by cooking her a special meal? Hosting a memorable Mother’s Day brunch can be easy with these tips from Akron and Cleveland caterers.
Mother’s Day brunch is traditional. While you can host a Mother’s Day celebration at any time of the day, a brunch is traditional. That said, it doesn’t mean you have to be limited to simple foods. In fact, brunch is the perfect way to combine the best foods from many different meals into one delicious event.
Create a mom-friendly atmosphere. This is the day to get out your best dishes and spring linens. Set the tone for the brunch by setting tables with floral or pastel table cloths and matching napkins. Fresh flower arrangements in tea cups or small clay pots are a delicate way to decorate the table. Tying napkins with ribbons or adding small candles to the table can finish the look.
Choose versatile flavors. Much like the same concept that caterers in Akron use to create wedding menus, look for a balance of flavors in your menu. Combine sweet and savory items such as cinnamon rolls, egg casseroles and hash browns to give guests a variety of foods to choose from.
Go gourmet. If you are truly looking for a unique Mother’s Day menu, then try the same gourmet approach that caterers use. With the help of a Cleveland caterer, you can offer tea sandwiches, tiny tarts, specialty sausages or gourmet syrups to cover pancakes and waffles. Look to specialty caterers in Akron for help with these time-consuming items.
Keep it personal. Another menu option might include all of your mom’s favorite foods. If your mom prefers heartier foods, you might include ham and potatoes as the main dish, or choose foods from her heritage, whether that is lasagna and garlic bread or pork and sauerkraut.
Finish on the sweet side. At the end of the meal a sweet bite can be the perfect finish. Wedding caterers suggest a selection of cheesecakes, fruit tarts, petit fours, or strawberry shortcake with whipped cream as a way to top off the meal.
