Time again for Mother’s Day Celebrations and making the mom in your life feel special. In past blog posts we’ve written about items for moms who love being in the kitchen. We’ve featured spa-like baths that provide an escape for mom to relax on the one day devoted to Motherhood. Today we’re offering suggestions for entertaining at home. And where does everyone gather during a party? The kitchen, of course!
Kitchens are no longer just the place where we prepare and cook a meal. It’s where family and friends congregate to eat, drink and be merry! Newer kitchens have been designed to accommodate this multi-functionality. Beyond being party-central, our kitchens are also laboratories, study halls, art workshops and mini-offices. They often accommodate the family pet(s), too. Kitchens are the heart and hub of our homes.
One of the easiest ways to entertain is with a buffet rather than a sit-down meal. If your kitchen has an island, it is the ideal place to set out a food spread and serving pieces. It’s always fun to set the table for Mother’s Day, too, whether you’re hosting a brunch, luncheon, tea or dinner.
Breakfast in Bed
Starting off the day serving mom breakfast in bed is always a good choice, too. These pancake coin brochettes with fresh fruit are adorable.
Of course, for some of us, the best celebrations start with reservations! (At our favorite restaurant…)
Happy Mother’s Day!
