My Mother’s Day tradition is to host a single mom’s brunch at the house. This year was no exception. The new addition this year was that we celebrated two birthdays in addition to Mother’s Day so we had a birthday cake for dessert and afterward we all did an escape room down the street. We got out, of course, with time to spare ;).
Time got a bit away from me this year but normally, I like to make each mom guest a little mason jar of scented bath salts. The process is easy enough to do with the kids and it’s a cute little gift. I like lavender as it is so relaxing and go for stress relief.
Lavender and mint bath salts
1 cup Epson salt
¼ cup baking soda
20 drops of lavender oil
10 drops of mint oil
Mix it all together and pour into a wide mouth mason jar. Add ribbon or your choice of decoration.
For brunch, I kept the table simple with a linen tablecloth and a lovely spring, low floral arrangement. Here’s our menu:
Potato, egg and avocado egg boats (recipe)
French toast casserole
Spinach salad with blue cheese crumbles and candied pecans
Bagels and cream cheese
Chocolate birthday cake for dessert
