When I started thinking about themes for a Mother's Day luncheon, the image of a "busy bee" came to mind. Many of my friends are new moms who have found themselves busy, busy, busy. Why not stop the buzz and celebrate the queen of your hive with this sweet spread?
Honey in cocktails? Sure, why not! Martha Stewart Living Radio has some delicious and creative honey cocktail suggestions (The Basil and Honey Daiquiri sounds fab!)
You don't want to go overboard with honey, so in addition to your regular lunch or brunch dishes, add these:
Bruschetta with Gorgonzola Cheese and Honey (pictured above, bottom left)
Marzipan Bees (pictured above, top left)
Keep the theme going with sunny yellow centerpieces. Display yellow roses, daffodils, or daisies (any would be adorable with a black ribbon tied around the container), or put whole lemons into a vase, as pictured here. So simple!
Decorate with these salt and pepper shakers, this cute bee motif glassware (there's a whole line of tableware in the same motif), and these fun Beehive Candles (pictured above, middle left).
Bestow Mom with any number of gift sets from Burt's Bees or splurge on this Honey & Lemon Luxury set from L'Occitane.
