I always wanted to host a Mother’s Day Brunch. Finally, one year I just did it! I made it simple, but pretty, and the biggest thing- AFFORDABLE!
Without a doubt- I LOVE to host people at my home. There is something so fulfilling to me to gather with our friends and family over good food, good conversation, and little details I put so much love into. My Mother’s Day Brunch was no different. Every detail was intentional and with lots of love.
Now, I do need to add a little disclaimer- this was a kid friendly brunch aka our table scape was a mix of paper and plastic because well kids haha!
Simple & Affordable Mother’s Day Brunch At Home
Choosing A Theme
Spring is a full on floral and garden season, I love floral themes for brunch. Remember- budget is huge so I now keep decorations super simple and reuse items I have at home for it.
The Main Table
Now, to keep things simple I setup brunch with whatever furniture I have in my yard. The picnic table was covered with white linen tablecloths and I placed these small tins with faux flowers I picked up at Michaels for $2 each.
The table settings were a mix of plastic charger plates from the Dollar Tree and a floral paper plate and cups set on Amazon. The exact set I own is sold out but check out these similar ones too!
Our patio furniture set is the perfect setup for a little cozy and super comfortable Mom Lounge. The mamas really appreciated this!
The cutlery is plastic and if you choose a set without cutlery, your local dollar store is my biggest suggestion.
What is brunch with mimosas? This large ice bucket was a steal at Home Goods, but I have linked some similar ones you can purchase online. It was a nice touch and really made it feel like a fun mimosa bar. Don’t forget the champagne an the fruit!
These plastic flutes from the Dollar Tree were perfect to keep us feeling fancy but also prevent broken glass accidents.

The menu is left as it should be, for anyone other than the moms to make up. Marcos’ favorite is a cream cheese stuffed french toast, egg dish, potatoes, sausages, bacon, and something sweet like donuts.
To keep guests munching a charcuterie board is a great addition! If you are local to Southern California I recommend Noshings By Court! Courtney is a long time friend and I promise you won’t be disappointed. For a gathering of about 20 the 10×10 was the perfect size box.
This is completely optional! We wanted to give a little thank you and opted for a trip to Home Depot for some pots and flowers. You guys know I love practical gifts and let me tell you a year later they are blooming again! It is so cool to see them come to life time and time again.
