While nothing can ever quite top breakfast in bed, this year, throw your mom a Mother's Day party where the dress code isn't pajamas. Host an event for mothers, friends, and grateful daughters, in whatever style you love most. Will you reach for the daiquiri glasses or break out the china tea set? Here are some inspirations to help you choose the perfect theme!
