If you can’t give Mom a dream trip to Paris this year on her special day, get busy in the kitchen and make her breakfast in bed. But do it quietly! Let her sleep in and surprise her with one of these treats – don’t forget the Bloody Mary too!
My Mother’s Day celebrations have looked suspiciously like Father’s Day…we get together for a backyard BBQ. Because, after a long winter, it always feels like a waste of nice spring weather to head to a restaurant for a Mother’s Day brunch.
What I’ve wanted on my special day…just once…would be a relaxing and indulgent Mother’s Day breakfast in bed. It’s a wonderful way to show your love and gratitude to Mom for all she does.
Day in and day out.
Year after year.
The Ultimate in Pampering
Making breakfast in bed for a loved one is a special gift. It can be romantic – have you ever celebrated Valentine’s Day this way? It can also be just for fun. I lost a bet in college once and had to serve the winner his morning meal. My friend passed away not long after graduation; I still remember him with a smile every time I think about serving him breakfast in bed.

What to Serve for Breakfast in Bed?
Don’t know where to begin to come up with recipes for Mom’s Day? Think about the best brunch you ever had and try to replicate it. If Mom likes pancakes, whip up a batch of buttermilk flapjacks – don’t forget the maple syrup! Or try something much harder, like a classic eggs benedict. Even a yogurt parfait will put a smile on Mom’s face, when it’s served with love.
Here’s a collection of 15 gorgeous and delicious Mother’s Day breakfast in bed recipes to get you started. Whether your mom likes a traditional breakfast, is super health conscious or prefers something more decadent, there’s a recipe here for her.
Get up early and prep a treat. It can be as simple as scrambled eggs. Serve them with a little coffee or tea (maybe buy a pretty cup she can use every other day of the year?) and fresh squeezed orange juice. Or a lot of vodka in a super spicy Bloody Mary. If you’ve got time the day before, whip up a loaf of Southern Living banana bread and include a slice on the side. Amp up the “Love you, Mom” with a cute serving tray and some pretty flowers. She’ll love it.
And don’t forget…you do the dishes too. That makes this a complete Mother’s Day gift!
