Here are all of the details from plates to eats to gift ideas for a lovely Garden Brunch for our dear, hard-working mothers.

DECORATIONS

For a garden party, flowers are essential and the most perfect decorations. (You can go real or fake.)

Find some seasonal flowers and put them in simple containers - like canning jars or even in an elegant pitcher.
