Mother’s Day Brunch: Le Menu

May 10, 2012

If anyone is hosting Mother’s Day Brunch at home, we have created a menu just for you. Since it’s for mom, this menu is heavy on the lady-friendly foods we all love. Start the day off sipping mimosas and nibbling on a selection of spreads with crostini. Serve salad and a tart for the main course to keep things easy on the hostess – and we promise this tart is plenty filling. End the meal with Emily’s Greek Yogurt Lime Cake for a refreshing but still sweet ending.

Grapefruit Mimosas and Iced Tea

Artichoke Tapenade, Sun-Dried Tomato Walnut Pesto & Crostini

Balthazar Salad

Belgian Leek Tart with Aged Goat Cheese

Greek Yogurt Lime Cake

For the table, we love keeping things cheery and feminine with punchy pink linens and bright ranunculas. Small, free form arrangements scattered across the table in everyday vessels like teapots or jars create a more casual ambiance with just as much impact as a large centerpiece. Add some elegant glassware for a touch of formality – it will create a nice balance.
