*** Plan A Mother’s Day Brunch
One of the best ways to be a good hostess is to relax. It’s not always easy, but there are some things you can to do eliminate most of the stress.
Make a list of everything you need to purchase, including ingredients and decorations. If you don’t already have enough chairs, purchase, rent, or borrow them in advance.
Do as much of the preparation as possible the night before. Set out the plates, mugs, glasses, napkins, and flatware. Place trivets where you’ll want to put the casserole dishes so you don’t have to scramble at the last minute.
Put fresh hand towels in the bathroom that guests will be using. Make sure there is plenty of soap in the dispenser.
If you want place cards, jot your guests’ names on pretty cardstock and put them in small frames that they can take home later. They’ll enjoy having a new frame for photos of their children or pets.
Decorations can be as elaborate or simple as you want. The guests will be happy with a table full of food and a few well-placed floral arrangements. However, if you want more, feel free to add more decorations. Just make sure you leave room on the tables for your guests’ food and drinks.
Have a few conversation starters to keep people engaged. You may not need them, but it's nice to have something to fall back on if you do.
If you have room, separate the food from the drink station so your guests won’t bump into each other. This will help prevent uncomfortable and awkward moments.
