Mothers do a lot for us. They (literally) give us life and nurture us throughout childhood and adulthood. They are there to comfort us in times when we need emotional support and sound advice on basically anything in life. The list goes on and we are sure you could think of plenty of things that make your mum special to you!
We are all grateful for the lengths that our mums go to. So, why not show how much you appreciate her support, kindness and love, by spoiling her with breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day. And if you’re a mum yourself, don’t forget to share this article to give a sneaky hint of where your expectations lie!
Here are some helpful tips and suggestions when it comes to preparing the ultimate breakfast in bed for your mum.
Preparation is key
If you still live in the same house as your mother, then your preparation just got a whole lot easier. However, if you don’t, you need to be sure to plan out the exact details of how you are going to execute your master plan of surprising her on that Sunday morning.
What time does she usually wake up on the weekends? The longer she sleeps in, the longer you have to prep. But still, make sure you arrive earlier to give yourself plenty of time to perfect everything.
What breakfast to make?
Before jumping straight into the creative and fun side of deciding what exactly to make your mother for breakfast, consider the concept of breakfast in bed. The last thing you want to do is put together a beautiful masterpiece that is certain to taste good, but may be a little bit awkward to eat whilst sitting in bed.
Make sure you choose a dish that is rather mess-proof and will leave your mum feeling comfortable and relaxed to enjoy in bed.
What food does she enjoy? Does your mum have a sweet tooth when it comes to breakfast or does she crave something a little more savoury? Decide on the dish, get a recipe and make sure you have all the ingredients and kitchen tools ready to go the night before.
To help you get started in brainstorming some ideas, here are a few breakfast meals that could work perfectly in impressing your mum!
- French toast
- Smoothie bowl (for the health conscious foodie mums)
- Bacon & eggs (think of how she prefers her eggs cooked)
- Smashed avocado on toast (classic!)
Remember, you can turn something that is so simple into something incredible for your mum. Does she have a favourite cereal? You could always jazz it up and serve with some seasonal fruits, mixed nuts and other suitable toppings.
Sometimes the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is more than just the breakfast itself. It might be the last-minute finishing touches you add to create something more personal and special. A side of her favourite tea or juice. Or maybe a beautiful bouquet of flowers?
Writing a meaningful and heartwarming message in a homemade card will be the ultimate winner in getting that smile on her face (maybe even a little tear of joy).
Lastly, don’t forget- the ‘I cook, you clean’ motto won’t work in these circumstances! Be prepared to take on the cleaning role to ensure your mum gets the relaxing and chore-free day that she deserves!
