They care for scraped knees, dry teary eyes, help with science fair projects and do routine sweeps for monsters under the bed. That’s right, today we’re talking about the women who do it all — moms! These real life superheroes should be celebrated every darn day, but Mother’s Day is definitely the time to go all out. And since Mother’s Day is one of the busiest restaurant days of the year, what better way to celebrate than a colorful and relaxing brunch at home? For home bakers who want to take their festivities up a notch, here are some unique watercolor-inspired Mother’s Day brunch ideas to liven up your tablescape.
