Mother’s Day is fast approaching; but you still have plenty of time to think of something to give Mom this year.  If you’re thinking about taking her out to brunch or dinner you better make reservations now!  Mother’s Day is one of the busiest days for most restaurants, that’s probably because Moms don’t want to cook on Mother’s Day, I know I don’t!

Instead of taking her out this year why not make Mom breakfast in bed?  You don’t have to be a great cook, it can be as simple as bringing her a bowl of cereal or even a pop tart and a glass of orange juice.  The idea is to make the day special by doing something for Mom instead of how it usually works,  Mom getting up and doing for everyone in the house!

Here are some ideas and recipes for Mother’s Day breakfast in bed.  I hope it will inspire you this Mother’s Day!

How to serve it?

First things first!  It all begins with a tray, you’ll need to put her food on something to carry it to her room.  Even if it’s just a pop-tart it will look yummy dressed up plated on a nice dish and served on a pretty tray with a flower from the garden.
