Celebrate mother’s day with your best mom friends by hosting a ladies luncheon and dessert bar. Get ideas and recipes below. This post is sponsored by Banfi wines; all opinions are my own.
In celebration of mother’s day I thought it would be fun to host a luncheon for some mom friends so we could eat light fare, drink some bubbly, indulge in sweet treats, and have great conversation together. Think of it as the NEW galentine’s day!
You still have time to pull something like this together whether it’s for your best mom friends, or for your own mother’s day celebration. In fact you could forego the luncheon and simply host a “donuts and Rosé” dessert bar for happy hour.
I’ve pulled together some sweet ideas and recipes with the help of some fantastic vendors, and serving up plenty of Banfi wine like this sparkling red Rosa Regale.

Host a ladies luncheon for Mother’s Day
This ladies luncheon was set up on the patio to enjoy the lovely spring weather. I kept the table setting rather simple and served food family-style including a Sartori cheese board, honey chicken salad cups, and a roasted grape salad. I served Bolla Prosecco to wash it all down.
A mixed floral centerpiece decorates the table, while each guest also gets her own mini vase at each place setting. She can take this home as a party favor, along with a small sachet of Sugar Shapes from Artisan Sugars. Also from Artisan Sugars are the pink jasmine sugar charms hanging on the side of the champagne coupes. Just drop it into the prosecco for added flavor similar to that of a champagne cocktail.
I saved the best for last with this sweet mini dessert bar…
This dessert bar hits the spot for our small gathering, with a donut-hole tower as the centerpiece of the table. I rounded out the sweet offerings with something chocolate – these chocolate dipped Oreos from Gourmet Gift Baskets, and colorful macarons of course!
This Rosa Regale is the perfect dessert wine to serve for our mother’s day ladies luncheon. It’s a sweet sparkling red that looks as good as it tastes! The rich color looks pretty alongside the rest of the spring color palette.
Flowers play a big role in the decor of this party as I wanted to reflect the season, and the occasion. I used blooms to help decorate the donut tower, to garnish ice cubes, and to garnish the sparkling wine. REMEMBER TO NEVER INGEST TOXIC OR NON-EDIBLE FLOWERS.
I hope you’re inspired to host a ladies luncheon for your mom friends or for your own mother’s day celebration. With the help of some delicious wine, some specialty vendors, and tasty food recipes, you’ll be able to pull this off without a hitch! Cheers!
