I am trying to come up with a theme for our Mother's Day brunch at Church. I found ideas for prizes, but I really need themes. Can anyone help, please?

What about something along the lines of mothers being a treasure and decorate little wooden treasure boxes with brownish gold/bronze paint and fabric doilies old fashioned buttons kinda Victorian looking, and maybe tuck a verse under the lid.
Mothers dont bloom where they are planted, they bloom all over the place! Flowers, real, felt, paper, and lots of them.
I think it could be fun to do a retro theme. Maybe do it in black and white with a little pink or red (or silver) thrown in? I think it would be really classy, but still easy to decorate using the theme. You wouldn't have to make anything complicated, just use streamers and table settings in your colors. You could even give away retro cats-eye sunglasses to all of the ladies.
These are all nice.
Under the feet of Mothers, there has exist paradise.
"A Mother Is..."
We do a coffee/cafe theme at our church now. We did the tea for years, but felt the need to update that. Last year we based it on Col 2:7 "rooted, built up, strengthened" with nurture as the overall idea. We painted large coffee mugs with flowers and filled them with coffee beans and placed tea lights in them as centerpieces/door prizes. We dipped plastic spoons in chocolate and drizzled colored white chocolate over it, wrapped in cellophane and tied with raffia (as coffee stir spoons) for favors.
Other ideas I'm playing with for this year's decor: French cafe theme (think Paris cafe or boutique), quiche lorraine or croissant lorraine (scrambled egg filling with traditional lorraine ingredients), tartines (open faced sandwich on toasted bagettes), lavender scented chocolates (simmer milk with lavender and strain before adding chocolate, then put in molds), little lavender or coffee soaps with raffia ribbon for favors, etc.
beach/spa theme (to treat the ladies and recognize that they need to be pampered) using Kona coffee and tropical desserts; colors: turquoise, light green, soft brown, but mostly white; sand in jars with raffia ribbon around the lip and tealights inside as centerpieces, little lotions or bubble bath as favors. Hope these help!
