Hosting a Mother's Day Brunch in Your Sunroom



Mother's Day happens at a lovely time of year. As spring flowers bloom and the kids reach the end of their school year, a Mother's Day celebration highlights the turning of the seasons. A sunroom is the perfect space to host a Mother's Day brunch or other celebration because it allows guests to experience spring's joy with comfort.
There are a variety of ways to enhance a sunroom for Mother's Day with elegant and beautiful decor that your whole family will enjoy.



Arrange fresh flowers

While a sunroom already contains the best of both the outdoors and indoors, placing fresh flowers in vases on the tables in modern arrangements provides an additional focal point of beauty. Carnations and roses are traditional Mother's Day flowers, but tulips, sunflowers, and Gerber daisies create updated arrangements. You might also consider ordering special corsages or boutonnieres for the matriarchs of the family.


Set up a buffet

You can provide food for guests right in the sunroom. Set up a long table with a variety of pastries, fruit, coffee, juice, and even mimosas. Scones and muffins are easy to bake and can be easily transported from the kitchen to the sunroom. One-dish items such as quiches or trifles are also easier to move across the house than courses with many components. Colorful plates and glasses that coordinate with the decor of the sunroom may also be a nice touch.

Combine old and new

Because Mother's Day is all about family, incorporating an heirloom into your Mother's Day celebration can be especially meaningful. Mother's Day is the perfect time to use your grandmother's serving spoons, silver platters, or ceramic bowls. Your sunroom's modern design combined with family heirlooms will provide a contrast between old and new that is perfect for this occasion. Moving framed family photos into the sunroom may also be a hit!

Have the kids help

No matter how many women are attending your Mother's Day celebration--mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and the like--homemade crafts made by your kids can provide a warm, welcoming, and home-spun atmosphere for your Mother's Day party in the sunroom.

Take photos

You can take photos of your family right in the sunroom or have everyone step outside to snap a group photo in the yard. After Mother's Day, don't forget to share your photos with the whole family. A framed Mother's Day group photo is a great party favor. 


Plan for next year

Work with a landscaper to figure out how to maximize your yard's beauty throughout the year. What kinds of flowers will you want blooming in your yard on Mother's day next year?
