A Mother's Day Breakfast...

Pin It Now!
I always remind my children that I appreciate small gestures from them much more than big gifts when it comes to special occasions.
I don't care about diamonds, or expensive purses or trendy shoes....just give me little gifts of love any day of the week.
A few years ago, my daughter went Christmas shopping for me on her own with her own money, and she bought some Burt's Bees lipstick and hand salve for me.
I loved that she knew that these things were my favourite little everyday things.
My son often brings me a glass of water with ice or a small treat on a plate when I have gone to bed early to read a good book.
It's these kinds of things that make me feel loved.
This brings me to a Mother's Day breakfast.
I love when others make food for me...it means they know that a break from the kitchen is a wonderful gift...and, for instance,  a breakfast tray would be an amazing and luxurious treat.
This is what my dream breakfast tray would look like...
Orange juice..{I am not a coffee drinker, so imagine coffee here too if you drink it.}
a soft-boiled egg with toast...
and a delicious fruit salad garnished with a bit of whipped cream and a strawberry.
Simple yet filling.
I lined the tray with this pretty turquoise place mat and used this awesome flower print paper napkin...both from Superstore....love that store!
I completed the tray by adding this mini-terrarium that I shared in yesterday's post.
(So, dear children, if you are reading Mommy's blog, here is a small hint as to what special surprise you could make for Mommy!)
And if I lived closer to my own Mom, I would surely consider surprising her with a special meal on a pretty tray for Mother's Day.
My son does not enjoy making crafts at all, but I know he would gladly make something like this for me if I suggested it.
My daughter would be more likely to tackle a bigger meal on her own....2 few years ago she made a terrific greek supper for me on Mother's Day...complete with dessert.
It was wonderful and I was so proud of her.
So don't be afraid to suggest to your children that you would love a break from the kitchen on Mother's Day...and see what they come up with!
Cooking for people is a time-honoured way of showing love!

I would love to wake up to something like this on Mother's Day. I would do it up for MY mom, but she lives almost 2000 miles away :(

Meg said...

Angie, can I come over for breakfast??? This looks perfect!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

I love the turquoise placemat and serviettes. Looks like a yummy breakfast.

Jenn Lifford said...

Yes, that would make the perfect breakfast! Connor's birthday is on Mother's Day this year so I think the birthday will trump Mother's Day! Maybe next year...
Superstore has some fabulous decor items out right now - loving those colors. I've been trying to figure out an excuse to buy some of those matching trays. :)
I hope your kids read your post!

Bronwyn said...

Oh yeah! I'd love this too! Only I like my toast cut into "soldiers" just like MY mom used to do.
Love those napkins. I'm off to the Superstore this afternoon - I'll be on the lookout!

Angie, this is lovely. I wish my husband would read this post...: ) I would love to wake up to this on Mother's day. My son is still a little too young but maybe with a little help from Daddy he could pull it off. I'm with you - I don't need expensive purses or jewlery - it's the little every day things that count. I'm sure your kids will treat you well this mother's day!

I agree with you that time together and little thoughtful actions mean so much more to me on Mother's Day than other gifts. Your little terrarium is so cut and such a good idea! I think I will make a few too. Linda

JoKnows said...

Your tray is so pretty and your children sound sweet! I like nothing better than to read a good book, listen to some nice music and have someone bring me lovely food! Followed by chocolate. ;)

Hello Angie,
My children have brought breakfast for years...over time there's only one left in the nest (part-time) she does a sweet job creating breakfast in bed. Sweet blessings!

This would bring a smile to any mom's face -- LOVE those napkins! Those with kids still at home, leave your laptop open and this post up . . . let's see if anyone catches the hint!

Really pretty! All moms deserve breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. I need to show my kids this one. :-)

Such a sweet post. I think you are teaching your children a valuable lesson on what moms treasure the most. I love the simplicity and colors of this pretty, pretty tray.

Happy Chinadoll said...

I agree. If my husband makes that I would also be happy :) I love the idea of the flowers in the champagne glass.
