Breakfast with Tiffany

May 9, 2018 GMT

Mother’s Day brunch is one of the most important meals of the year, especially for moms.

Whether your brood plans to show their appreciation for, you know, the gift of life with a special breakfast in bed or a fancy feast on the town, dress the part with a little (or a lot of) extra sparkle.

Fans of the iconic little blue box already know — there’s a new head honcho running Tiffany & Co., Reed Krakoff. The chief artistic director’s first jewelry collection, Paper Flowers, just landed in stores May 1. Run, don’t walk, to the Galleria outpost for dibs on the delicate floral-design rings, necklaces, brooches and more.

It’s the perfect way to #treatyoself ahead of Sunday’s prime see-and-be-seen brunch outings. Moms lucky enough to snag a rezzie at the Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston’s jewel box of a restaurant, Bloom & Bee, will pop against pink velvet, photo-friendly décor in a Tanzanite gemstone or splash of platinum.

Want to present Mom with some Tiffany blue, minus the four-figure price tag? Bone-china paper cups are $95 for a pair; they’re a thoughtful, dishwasher-safe way to serve Mom’s morning coffee on Sunday — and the other 364 days of the year, too.
