Entertaining:: Citrus Mother’s Day Lunch

Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY!!!….

Being somewhat of a new Mom, I get a Little excited about Mother’s Day! Mostly because it makes me feel special to be the mother to my little angel and to look at our little Family and see how blessed we are!

And it’s also a great reason to get the family together, set the table pretty and just enjoy the day!

This year I wanted to come up with a theme and what better theme for South Florida then to do a lunch all about citrus fruits!

Get inspired by this Lunch and make Mom feel a little extra special by throwing her a nice lunch!

You will see below that this lunch is all about Citrus fruits, Flowers in your cocktail and tasty citrus bites! This is a simple lunch that you can throw together pretty easily! (especially if you are in South Florida, when you can just go in your backyard and grab some Palm Leafs!)

Below you will get the whole scoop and all recipes to make these quick dishes!

I hope this inspires you to make your Mother’s Day special to celebrate yourself and Mom!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mommas out there! xoxo
