Mother’s Day Brunch Menu


I’m hosting a little Mother’s Day brunch this weekend in my garden. If you can call a sparse bit of dry grass and over grown trees in your back yard a “garden.” While the surrounds might not be perfect, my menu is battle tested and the company can not be beat. My mom, aunt, cousin and grandmother will be together and we always have so much fun. My party prep timeline is below in case you want to follow along too.

Hopefully, this party honoring my mom will make up for when my brothers and I gifted her a curly fry maker for Mother’s Day, twenty years ago. We thought it might gently encourage her to cook us fried food in the comfort of our home. Sadly it was neither well received or ever touched.

xo, Lydia

    Sounds like it will be a beautiful brunch! All it needs is a side of curly fries to complete it. 🙂
