28 Oh-You-Shouldn’t-Have Mother’s Day Lunches

Mother’s Day lands at the tail end of spring, making it the perfect time to have a lovely outdoor lunch to honor the matriarch in your life (weather permitting). Make the most of vibrant spring produce like asparagus, peas, herbs, and fiddleheads and keep things appropriately light for a midday meal. And when it comes to Mother’s Day lunches, don’t forget it’s a special occasion—splurge for great, fresh seafood and serve with a nice white or rosé wine, or a bit of bubbly. And be sure to finish your meal for Mom on a sweet note by making her a special dessert.
