Mother's Day is Sunday.  If you haven't made reservations then consider arranging a special picnic for the mom in your life. Pack something delicious then take her and the kiddos somewhere beautiful. Voila you have a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. 

You can pick something up at the store or prepare it yourself.  Bon Appetit has 25 Mother's Day Brunch Recipes. Some, like the Tortilla Española and the sticky buns, are portable.

And my favorite picnic locations are:
