Smoked salmon bagels
It looks elegant but all you need for this brunch recipe is your toaster. Toast bagel halves and top them with cream cheese and a couple slices of pre-sliced smoked salmon from your local grocery store. Add lemons for garnish.
Berries aren't the only fruits that are perfect for Mother's Day brunch. Real Simple recommends a citrus salad made with sliced orange and grapefruit rounds topped with honey and fresh mint.

Celebrate your mom with a refreshing Mother's Day cocktail. Select light, fruity cocktails with a Champagne base. Try the grand mimosa cocktail, fresh cranberry pear Bellini or pomegranate Champagne cocktail.
Don't be afraid to pick up from your neighborhood deli or bakery. For Mother's Day, your mom and your family want to enjoy your company. They know you can cook! So don't be tempted to try to bake everything from scratch, deck out your home in beautiful decorations and play the hostess with the mostess. Brunch fare shouldn't be heavy. If all else fails, you can just put together a collection of salads (fruit, green and pasta) along with croissants and a variety of jams and call it a brunch.
