This year, I wanted to do something more personal and sweet for my Mom for Mother’s Day. With all the wedding planning going on, we have been so crazy busy and I thought it would be nice to have a special brunch for her. She LOVES flowers and her favorite colors are yellow and purple, so I based the décor around that. She also loves bloody Mary’s and I am more of a mimosa girl so why not have both?!?!
I kept it very simple. I used inspiration from various places and added a little touch of my own love for the table!! I hope you can take any little ideas away from here and use them for your own brunch or party or shower you may be having in the future:)
Believe it or not I made these flower arrangements myself. I found the purple tulips that I wanted for the napkins and then picked out other yellow and purple blooms that would give the arrangements some shape and texture. I ALWAYS love greenery so I also got a bunch of different greenery to add it and give it a really unique look.

I actually used my bar cart to serve drinks off instead of it just looking pretty haha!!! and then I used my little chest for the bloody Mary’s. I made a mini Bloody Mary Bar with the garnishes that I knew my Mom liked:)
I just kept the food simple. I made a delicious savory egg casserole, lots of fresh fruit, and bought two amazing coffee cakes from our favorite bakery in Peoria (Trefzger’s)
Recipe for the Egg Casserole: Preheat oven to 375°F & need a 9×13 glass pan ungreased
1 package frozen hashbrowns
1 pound ground turkey sausage (or regular sausage)
18 large eggs
2-4 cups cheddar cheese
Brown the sausage in a skillet on the stove and drain the grease. Layer the pan with the hashbrowns on the bottom, then add the browned sausage meat. Then I dusted the top of the meat with a little bit of pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder (I’m terrible at measuring I just eye ball it). Crack all 18 eyes into a bowl and wisk, then pour over hashbrowns and sausage. Cook for 30-35 minutes then cover the top with cheese (I use 4 cups because I love cheese but 2 or 3 should be plenty). Place back into oven for 20 more minutes. Take out and let cool a few minutes before cutting!!
I had sooo much fun putting this together for my wonderful Mom!! This blog wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for her support!
All my dinning room furniture and décor is in this post here along with more pictures of the room!!!
Enjoy the rest of your week:)
