a berry colorful brunch
We think mom would definitely approve of these cute individual berry baskets. And don’t they just look adorable paired with colorful china and brightly colored napkins?
Macaron and Rosé gathering
We can’t think of anything better to make moms swoon than a touch of Parisian charm. A pile of perfect macarons and pink bubbles feels luxurious and extravagant — just what mom deserves.
