How to Plan the Perfect Mother’s Day Brunch with Lula
The spring season is in full bloom, and we’ve put together the perfect brunch itinerary for Mother’s Day! While the main event will be the menu items served, there is much more that goes into putting together an all-around unforgettable brunch to celebrate Mom. While she deserves to be showered in love every day, Mother’s Day is a special date to really show her how much you appreciate all that she does.
These simple brunch-ready pairings and planning tips will guarantee an intimate day filled with flowers, food, family, and a few laughs. We hope you enjoy them while you celebrate the mom (or mom-equivalent) in your life!
First thing’s first. You need to hone in your guest list, and the rest will follow. But don’t get too caught up in the trouble of arranging the numbers, this part is all up to you! Whether it’s an intimate one-on-one with Mom or a greater gathering of friends and family, the only thing that matters is inviting quality company that will make your day the best it can be.
Pairings & Preparations
We all know the way to Mom’s heart is through her taste buds! Now, this is where the creativity begins. Of course keeping in mind any food allergies or preferences of your guests, diving into your food and drink menu is most likely the best part of any brunch. While there are a plethora of options out there, we’ve done the hard work for you and recommend the following recipes, paired with our delectable world-class Lula wines.
Start your brunch off on the most tasteful note with our newly released Sauvignon Blanc, paired with a mouthwatering, yet so simple, flatbread. The wine’s delicate grassy and citrus aromas will enchant your guests’ palates, as they accompany their sips with some warm and crunchy flavors of peach and prosciutto.
Now that you’ve had a nice introductory pairing to start your day, it’s time to bring out the showstopping flavors of our 2021 Rosé of Pinot Noir. Paired with a delightfully light asparagus and smoked salmon dish, the similarly salmon-colored hue and crisp and clean finish of the Rosé will leave your taste buds begging for more!
Last but not least, you cannot forget the dessert! For our 2021 Gewürztraminer with a light appearance and lifted floral aromas, we couldn’t help but pair it with this mouthwatering fruit crumble. Be aware, however, that this dish can take up to 45 minutes to bake, so best to prep ahead of time to avoid any waiting for this dessert deliciousness.
Theme & Decor
Once the menu is all set, next comes the decoration. While not all of us are particularly party decor-savvy, this step can really be as simple or extravagant as you make it. Whether it’s some eco-friendly paper plates or your special-occasion china, just make sure it fits with the theme and setting of your day. Fortunately, Mother’s Day falls during the best floral season, so the only essential you truly need to accessorize your table is your favorite spring blooms.
The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift
Searching for the perfect gift to really show Mom how much you appreciate her? Look no further than our diverse portfolio of wines that is sure to please the palates of all moms out there. We recommend starting with our newly released wines! Our 2021 Rosé of Pinot Noir is salmon pink with hints of rose petals and red berry fruits on the nose. It’s crisp and clean finish will pair splendidly with whatever you have planned for Mother’s Day. Our Sauvignon Blanc. Showcasing delicate grassy, citrus, and stone fruit aromas and flavors, our 2021 vintage is perfect as an aperitif or paired with your favorite summer salads and seafood. And lastly, our 2021 Gewürztraminer has an appearance that is light with lifted floral aromas. Citrus and stone fruits give way to a palate offering a lovely balanced persistence and sweetness, delightful for a spring afternoon.
Make Memories & Capture Moments
If there’s anything we’ve learned this year, it’s to take in every moment and every opportunity. Mother’s Day can be a special time to spend with friends and family, so no matter where the day takes you—the spa, a hike, an art studio, or even a tasting at Lula Cellars—don’t forget to take a lot of pictures to look back on for the years to come!
Whether you plan on staying in, heading out for a tasting, or simply need a gift, we hope you let Lula be a part of your celebrations this Mother’s Day.
