What better gift to give your mom for Mother’s Day than to invite a few of her closest girlfriends, host a lovely Sunday brunch and tell her to sit back, relax and enjoy. You got this, and she doesn’t need to lift a finger. We asked our friends at Hamby Catering and Events to put together some of their favorites for a perfect Mother’s Day brunch menu. They even shared the Hamby family recipe for deviled eggs. Use your own favorite family recipes for the rest of the menu, or make it easy on yourself and order some of the dishes from Hamby’s Market. We won’t tell!
