Mother’s Day. Every year we do our best to celebrate mom and all that she does for us. Most moms will tell you that it is hard to beat a leisurely day, breakfast in bed, homemade cards and gifts of precious hand-prints pressed into clay or a macaroni necklace. As a mom to seven boys, I can tell you that is most definitely true, but it is also really nice to be a little pampered. Since a traditional Mother’s Day celebration is to take mom out to brunch, I thought I’d share a few of the most amazing brunches at some of the most luxurious venues in Los Angeles.
And if on the off-chance you need a reminder that Mom deserves a great day, be sure to check out this video!
Isn’t that awesome!? I love that video and have watched it several times.
There are so many fantastic brunch locations in the Los Angeles area. Honestly, you can get some of the most amazing food you’ve ever tasted at a food truck in L.A. However, as this video reminds us, Mother’s Day might be a great day to pull out all the stops and really treat mom to a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch, where the ambiance is luxe and she feels totally pampered.
