Grapefruit rose mimosa

Greet guests with a midday cocktail (or mocktail) to get them in the celebratory spirit. This grapefruit rose mimosa is a tasty take on the classic breakfast beverage, using mint and Pink Lillet to soothe the tartness of freshly squeezed grapefruit.

Springtime place settings

Seat guests at a pretty springtime table using mom’s favourite colours. Pops of pink found in the placemats and napkin ribbons of this tabletop contrast nicely with the Kelly green of the birdcage and fine china.

Flowers

Elevate your Mother’s Day tabletop by adding fresh blooms as a major centerpiece or in smaller vases throughout. Fresh white flowers are easy to tie into any colour scheme – think hyacinths, roses, hydrangea or ranunculus – and you can send them home with mom afterwards.
