When I think of Mother’s Day I think of breakfast in bed. I think of pampering mom by letting her sleep in and be treated to a delicious, decadent breakfast whilst surrounded by cozy blankets with sunshine streaming in on her from the open window.
While most likely this won’t happen, why not give it a try and let mom have a few fantastic morning moments on her day.
Below are some sample menus and links for recipes that I think make up a great Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed:
