    Great Mother's Day ideas

    Make a Mother's Day to remember with these ideas for delectable drinks, a picnic feast, homemade gifts, and a beautiful brunch.



Muffins ― and a wonderfully moist sour cream cake ― take on a fresh, whimsical shape when you bake them in clean, new, unglazed terra-cotta flowerpots. Just line the pots with cooking parchment (sold in supermarkets near waxed paper), and both muffins and cake pop out with ease.

The muffins, and the rest of our simple menu, are designed to tickle the kids and be easy for the supervising adult.

Every dish can be started, or prepared completely, up to a day ahead of time. And the menu serves 8, so you can add to the party.
