Brunch Table Setting Ideas for Mother's Day

Eight HGTV fans share inspiration and ideas to help you set a beautiful table to celebrate Mom.

Tea and Girl Talk

If the weather cooperates, what could be more beautiful than a garden tea party with Mom? Take comfy chairs to the heart of the garden and catch up while sipping tea, surrounded by all the colors of Mother Nature. Photo by HGTV fan countrygrl125. 

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.

Make It Special

A beautifully set table makes any meal into a special event; and what day could be more special than Mother's Day? Polish the heirloom silver, break out the crystal stemware and set a formal table to celebrate her big day. Table setting by HGTV fan countrygrl125. 

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. 

Simple, Chic, Chocolate

HGTV fan misssuzie3 created a chic Mother's Day table that demonstrates how layering neutral tones, in this case gold and chocolate, creates a feminine and sophisticated table setting for brunch.
