Mother's Day Luncheon

I flipped my calendar to May this morning to peek at the month ahead and was reminded of how quickly Mother's Day is approaching (May 8th to be exact)! If you've been considering hosting a brunch or luncheon for the occasion, here is a bit of inspiration for a cheerful and bright Mother's Day:
Mother's Day Luncheon

Hang paper lanterns that are embellished with ribbons in the party space. If your party will be outdoors, hang them from trees or garden stakes -- Martha Stewart

Be sure to serve lots of sweet desserts like lemon squares, cupcakes topped with sherbet and raspberry lemonade -- Lemon squares and lemonade via The Knot, Cupcakes via Martha Stewart

Present Mom with a beautiful wreath made of fresh yellow and white carnations, decorated with flowing ribbons -- The Knot

Set up a craft station for the kids, where they can decorate a canvas tote bag for their Mom -- Martha Stewart

Fill pretty milk glass vases with yellow, pink and red flowers -- The Knot

This invitation is bursting with color, making it the perfect choice for a Mother's Day luncheon -- Noteworthy Collection, available at FineStationery.com
