Fruit and Veggies for the Table

When planning a brunch for your friends or family, a great way to add color and nutrition to your table is to add some fresh fruit and vegetables to the menu. I love the addition of asparagus for a brunch, but grape or cherry tomatoes or even zucchini would be lovely. For instance, consider vegetables you might add to a frittata. Here are a few suggestions:

Beverages for a Mother’s Day Brunch

When it comes to a special brunch, you’ll want to serve more than just coffee or tea. Why not a coffee bar with multiple flavors and additions for your coffee? Or a favorite juice drink or maybe a fun cocktail (or mocktail) such as Tequila Sunrise, daiquiris, or mimosas. See this Pioneer Woman post for 40 Brunch Cocktails Here.
