MOTHER’S DAY MENU IDEAS
MOTHER’S DAY FINGER FOOD BRUNCH
Putting out beautiful trays of simple, elegant finger foods and serving them with several fruit and vegetable frescas, is a great way to entertain the moms in your life. Pinwheel sandwiches and Mascarpone crackers are a fun way to entertain. Add my mini fruit parfaits for the perfect finish.
