Hi there, it’s Lauren here, your Everyday Designer.  I don’t know about you, but April was a bit of beast for us. We made a temporary move while we’re waiting to close on our home. That, combined with working full time and caring for my five month old daughter (another full time job in itself), I am in dire need of some R&R. With Mother’s Day approaching (my first as an honoree!) I’ve been trying to think of how to celebrate the moms in my life without wearing myself out in the process—because we tend to do that as moms, right?! I don’t know about you but I’ve been wearing myself out and this Mother’s Day all I want is a nice, peaceful, no-fuss day with my family. Let’s celebrate the beauty in simplicity, shall we?

Here are my favorites from around the web for your no-fuss Mother’s Day celebration.

5 Ingredient Goat Cheese and Egg Souffle Cups from Sweet Phi

You can’t beat a great soufflé (err..no pun itended).  This delish dish has only 5 ingredients.  Now that’s my kind of recipe!  Whip these up for brunch and you’ll have a fantastically simple main dish. Serve with fruit salad and call it a day.

4 Ingredient Grapefruit Mimosa from Damn Delicious

I saw a shirt that says “Brunch because mimosas” and I don’t think truer words have ever been spoken. The only thing simpler than a 4 ingredient mimosa is a 4 ingredient mimosa where 2 of the ingredients are optional garnishes. Insert hair flip emoji.

5 Minute Rustic Fruit Galette from Gimme Some Oven

Ah, the galette, or as I like to call them, pies for lazy people. Basically you just put the filling in the center of the pie crust, fold up the edges, bake and you’re done. This 5 minute Rustic Fruit Galette is the PERFECT dessert for your no-fuss Mother’s Day because it’s easy but oh, so beautiful.

Two Minute Floral Arrangement from A Pair and A Spare

Round out your delightful brunch table with this easy two minute floral arrangement. So fresh and simple, and when brunch is over you can regroup the bouquet and send it home with your mom.

DIY Hand-Dotted Tumblers

This is like a grown-up version of the Mother’s Day craft you used to make at school back in the day. I’m guessing your mom will love whatever you make for her now just like she used to. Present your handiwork with a nice bottle of wine and bonus, you both can cheers to her health and happiness.

How are you celebrating Mother’s Day? I’d love to hear your ideas for how to enjoy the day fuss-free!

    I was wondering where you bought those dishes because they look amazing!
    I would love to have the same ones at home so if you could help me out it would be awesome.
    Thanks so much
