God bless that mammy of yours.

Mother's Day is nearly upon us, that time of year where we celebrate that lady who only went and gave you life

Since she literally gave you everything in this world, we advise you show your appreciation by giving her the greatest, best presented, most perfectly devised bed in breakfast that she's ever experienced.

We don't feel that's too much to ask.

Of course, you might not know where exactly to begin in organising such a surprise. That's where we come in. 

We've assembled a few top tips to help you pull off a breakfast in bed to remember this Mother's Day...

1. Make extra effort with the tea or coffee

Nobody makes tea or coffee better than your mammy, but today is the day to try and up the game. Go over the top with the best tea pot or French press you have and make it ceremonial.

2. Fresh juices and a smoothie will make it extra special

With so much food to eat, Mammy will want to at least believe that some of it is healthy. Make some fresh juice or, even better, a delicious smoothies to kick things off.

3. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with buttery toast

The perfect treat that keeps things on the healthy side but will make you mammy feel extra special. Don't be shy with lots of buttery Brennans Be Good wholemeal toast on the side. Spend a little extra on the smoked salmon to ensure a top quality finish.

4. A couple of the Sunday papers 

Mammy rarely gets time to herself to relax so this is the perfect opportunity. Buy a selection of papers and tell her to put the feet up while you look after whatever she'd normally have to get up for.

5. A selection of fresh fruit will make her day

This is normally confined to hotel buffets and fancy breakfasts eaten while out, so it feels extra special as a treat at home. Buy a selection of berries and exotic fruit to make her a gorgeous fruit bowl.

6. Slice up an avocado with a squeeze of lemon 

The key is buying the perfect 'ready to eat' avocado in the shops. Add a little squeeze of lemon and some black pepper — nothing will taste nicer.

7. Find or buy a tray to make it all extra special 

With so many courses and drinks, you'll want to present it on a tray. The chances are that Mammy might have one in the kitchen already but if she doesn't, you should buy one. It's all about the presentation.

8. Add a second course of French toast for that final touch

With Mammy totally happy and thinking the spoiling has finished, you bring out the 'piece de resistance'. Gorgeous French toast (made with Brennans Bread of course!) alongside some fresh berries; the perfect, sweet ending to one of the best moments in her year.
