There’s nothing quite like a mother’s love—unconditional, sacrificial, and enduring. Mother’s Day gives us a chance to show them just how much we appreciate them. For this year’s celebration, honor mom with a taste bud–tempting meal inspired by fresh ingredients, from aromatic herbs to garden vegetables to luscious berries.
Savor the Season
Mom is certain to ask for an encore when you serve this menu of seasonal delights. Savory Chicken Piccata shines as the entrée, while garden-fresh lettuce wraps, roasted corn and red peppers tossed with couscous, and an asparagus-prosciutto dish make summer-worthy starters and sides.
Better with Berries
The finale—a scrumptious vanilla bean pound cake—features a golden crust and a moist center that will make it your new go-to dessert in any season. It’s perfect on its own, but becomes sensational when topped with berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
Bounty of Blooms
Infuse your Mother’s Day tabletop with flowers galore. Freshly clipped hydrangeas arranged in vases and their artistic counterparts, custom printed on birch wood by Night Owl Paper Goods, complete this beautiful botanical scene.
