Maybe you're very organized and know exactly what you're doing for Mother's Day right this very minute. Maybe you're going out to eat and have had that important reservation booked for weeks. Maybe you're hosting a brunch or bbq for that special mom or moms in your life and have the menu planned down to the last cookie! Snaps for you!! if you're like the rest of us though, you probably have an idea or two, but are very likely going to stress out about exactly what to do come Saturday! Hopefully, you've got your gift or know what you're planning to get--can't help you much there, but if you're still searching for that perfect mom’s day meal, this mom’s got you covered. I've separated the categories into brunch, dinner and dessert because that's how most people seem to celebrate the day, but feel free to live on the wild side and honor motherhood with an afternoon tea or maybe a cocktail hour.
