Tips for Making Mom Breakfast in Bed on Mother's Day

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it’s time to start planning how to shower one of the most important women in your life with love, and one of the best ways to pamper her is by bringing her breakfast in bed.

Breakfast in bed is a classic Mother’s Day gesture, and there are plenty of ways to make it special. Here are some tips for making breakfast in bed, and ways to put your Ergo Spout® and mason jars to use for Mom’s special meal.

Plan the Details in Advance 

Whether you’re keeping it a secret or she knows exactly what you’re up to (most likely the latter), plan your Mother’s Day breakfast ahead of time. There are lots of details that need to be sorted prior to the morning, so make sure you have your menu planned, and even some of the food prepared in advance. 

For example, if you’re making an egg bake, mix it up the night before. If most of your menu requires assembly of ingredients, like English muffins or a bowl of oatmeal, gather your ingredients the night before so you can immediately begin preparing in the morning. 

Putting in just a smidgen of planning beforehand will make a huge difference on Sunday morning.

Keep it Simple - and Clean 

Serving your mother breakfast in bed already requires a lot of effort - there’s no need for a five course meal. Instead, keep it simple with a couple of her favorite things. Stick to options that you can put together in 10 minutes or less. The longest menu item to make should be the pot of coffee.

Try to keep things clean, too. Remember, you’re bringing this to her bed, so you want to avoid anything that’s too messy. Keep syrups in a mason jar with an Ergo Spout® on top and avoid excessively flaky and crumbly foods. Mom will be happy to have breakfast in bed, but she’ll be happier if she doesn’t have to clean up a mess afterward.  Don't forget to clean up the kitchen when you're done!

Add One Flourish

While you want to keep the meal pretty basic, you should also add one flourish to elevate the breakfast. Here are a couple easy ones:

  • A mason jar with flowers
  • A mimosa or mocktail
  • Some tasty sweets
  • A handwritten note

 One simple addition will take your meal from basic to brilliant. 

Serving Tips

When you serve Mom her breakfast, and there are plenty of ways to make it simple for all involved:

  • Pour all drinks and syrups using an Ergo Spout® on a mason jar. This keeps everything tidy and is a simple way to improve your service.
  • Utilize some sort of tray. Whether it’s a cheeseboard, a serving platter, or even a cookie sheet covered in some cloth, there are plenty of trays you can use even if you don’t have one with legs.
  • Include everything she might need: napkins, utensils, toppings, etc. Make sure she doesn’t have to leave her bed to enjoy her special meal! 

Serving Mom breakfast in bed is a lovely way to honor her on Mother’s Day. Make it easier and more beautiful this year by using an Ergo Spout®.
