Show mom how special she is to you this year by setting the scene for an inspired and heartwarming Mother’s Day brunch. Sure, the food is important, but ambiance makes everything better.
A flower-covered Treetopia artificial garland makes the perfect table runner.
Use a Garland as a Table Runner
When people think of a garland they usually envision it swagged on a staircase or hung over a fireplace. Using it as a table runner is a fun way to add drama to a Mother’s Day brunch table. Just look how cute a white garland works for Easter brunch.
How to Decorate Your Garland Table Runner
Does mom love color and kitsch? Is she more of a minimalist? Consider all these things when decorating your garland table runner, which will be the centerpiece of your Mother’s Day brunch. Ideas include:
- Colorful faux flowers
- Small tea cups and tea pots if it is a Mother’s Day tea party
- Floral sprigs
- Live flowers
All of these items should easily be arranged in the garland without hangers or ties.

What to Serve at a Mother’s Day Brunch
As always, take Mom’s wants and needs into consideration. What are her favorite foods? Is she a vegetarian? Remember this is about Mom. For a casual setting like this I’d suggest:
- Fresh Fruit – Berries, melon slices and small cut fruit
- Yogurt Parfaits – No mixing necessary if they are already assembled at the table
- Hard Boiled Eggs – Add a bit of protein to the spread
- Pastries – Small muffins, croissants or sweet breads
- Coffee or Tea – Depending on what mom prefers to drink
Nobody Said You Had to Sit at the Table
The dining room table is fine. But, for an informal brunch setting the scene in a family room or den can also be fun. Try using the coffee table instead.
If you need more room than your coffee table has to offer, expand it. You can easily do this by laying a long card table on top and covering with a decorative table cloth.
