Deciding how and where to celebrate Mother’s Day can lend some challenges: What exactly do you do for the woman who has given you everything and also has everything?
You’ve bought the expensive spa packages, the fancy jewelry and the oddly specific perfume she used to wear in the ‘80s that took two hours of intense Googling to find. But one gift that fits every season, holiday or occasion? Brunch.
On Sunday, May 12, give the gift of a delicious, lavish brunch to your mom, grandma, aunt, or person in your life who took on the role of a mother figure. Here are 10 Mother’s Day brunches in South Florida.
