Tea and Cookies
HGTV fan artquest enjoys a quiet moment with freshly baked cookies and a warm cuppa. For a healthy treat, she recommends adding 1/2 cup flax seed and a 1/4 cup wheat germ to any cookie recipe.
Pretty in Pink
HGTV fan MoonlightandMagnolias combined various patterns of pink floral china to create a harmonious whole. Tall candlesticks and an ivy topiary create a simple centerpiece.
Al Fresco Brunch
HGTV fan countrygrl125 knows that food always tastes better when enjoyed outside. Keep the table simple with a centerpiece of fresh flowers clipped from the garden and serve Mom's favorite foods to start her big day off on the right foot.

Charming Cottage-Style Brunch
Mother's Day brunch is the perfect occasion to set the table with family hand-me-down china and linens. Have fun, mix and match patterns, and layer fabrics to create a colorful table. Table setting by HGTV fan cottagecharm.
