Mother's Day Brunch Board

We all know that the true way to Mom’s heart is through her stomach. So why not combine her two favorite things: eating and spending time with you?

This Mother’s Day, instead of getting Mom a gift, surprise her with a brunch board. This is a platter with all the traditional breakfast foods you know she loves (yes, even the sugary ones!), plus some fresh fruit for good measure.

For garnish, add flowers from around your yard or some faux ones from the craft store (because let’s face it, Mom just wants to spend time with you). And if you really want to impress her, pour her a glass of sparkling juice or a mimosa to go along with it.

After brunch, do what she really loves: hang out and catch up!

What is a Brunch Board?

A brunch board is a unique, fun way to serve brunch. Instead of serving your guests on separate plates, you put all the food onto one large board and eat “family style.”

Brunch boards are a lot like charcuterie boards: they include a variety of different tastes, textures, and flavors from a simple brunch menu.

Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas

We love brunch. And we know you do too. So we put together this list of a simple brunch menu to include on your brunch charcuterie board.

  • Fruits: strawberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, watermelon, kiwis, grapefruits, clementines, blackberries, grapes.
  • Yogurt: any kind! Add some granola or chopped nuts for crunch.
  • Bagels: plain or flavored, it’s up to you. Throw in a variety of cream cheese, too.
  • Pastries: croissants are amazing, but if you want to be really decadent, try a chocolate donut, muffins or cinnamon rolls.
  • Waffles: blueberry waffles are a classic way to go (plus they’re easy to make!). If you’re feeling adventurous though, try making belgian waffles!
  • Bacon: thick slices of bacon are best when cooked in the oven and no mess.
  • Condiments: syrup and honey are the traditional choices here—but if you want something different, try adding whipped cream.
  • Beverages: Sparkling juice, mimosas and orange juice are all great choices for beverages in addition to coffee or tea.

Tips for Creating a Brunch Board

Here are some tips to help you create a brunch board that will wow mom:

  1. Choose a centerpiece—the centerpiece of your charcuterie board is the most important component. It should be something that really stands out visually, and also something delicious!
  2. Choose complementary foods—you don’t want to have too many flavors all competing with each other. Choose foods that complement each other in color, flavor, and texture—like eggs and bacon or pancakes with syrup.
  3. Add garnishes—grapes are perfect for a brunch charcuterie board because they’re easy to eat and add some color!
  4. Style with flowers—a beautiful bouquet will make it look beautiful on the table and give your mom something to keep after she eats. Look for colors that complement the brunch board, or have fun choosing unexpected colors to make your presentation pop!
