Mother’s Day is just a few short days away now, do you have fun plans? To celebrate, Leah and her mom are spending Saturday enjoying a relaxing day at Pura Vida Day Spa. But, here at the Olive Branch we know how busy life can get. Sunday, Leah’s mom will be here to help Leah in the cafe as we serve you and your moms! We hope you all can take a break from your busy schedules and show your mom how great she is too.
1. Start with Brunch. If you don’t have any cooking skills, then leave it to us! We serve brunch from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday and we’ll be serving our special coconut cream stuffed French Toast! But if you’d like to give it a try yourself, Leah’s sinful twist on French Toast recipe is easy and melts in your mouth. You can even try this recipe for Eggs Benedict Biscuits! She’s sure to love gathering around the table enjoying a delicious meal with the people she loves.
2. Now, moms always say, “Don’t get me anything, I don’t need a gift, just time with you!” And of course, that is always what they want, but my favorite part of Mother’s Day is seeing the look on my mom’s face when she opens the gift we all surprised her with. The key to this is getting her something she’ll use. If you’re mom likes to cook, spend the day cooking with her! At the Olive Branch, we have Leah’s recipe books and cupcake sets so you can make your very own special treats at home!
3. Most importantly: spend time with her. Forget the gifts and fancy meals. Mom’s mean it when they say all they want is a day spent with you. Give her a hug and let her know how special she really is!
Last but not least, if the thought of all this DIY sends you into a panic, the Olive Branch is always here for you! We’ll be serving our brunch menu all weekend and our cupcake case is always full of yummy treats. But whatever you decide to do, make sure it’s celebrating mom because she deserves it!
