I am in love with simple elegance.
Simplicity that lets the details shine and take center stage and
details such as pretty lacy dishes with a sprig of lilac
blush & purple stemware
and soft smooshy white roses on the table.
For an occasion like a Mother's Day brunch-
a pretty table set with detailed dishes and flowers outdoors is perfect.
And today I am joining a fun Blog Hop with Balsam Hill
celebrating Mother's Day.
Mother's Day is a special day to celebrate our Mother's and Grandmothers
and mother figures in our lives and also to celebrate being a mom.
I have 3 children who are now almost all grown up (which I can hardly believe)
It seems like just yesterday when I became a mother and was celebrating my
first Mother's Day as a mom.
I remember that I felt like though lived half way across the country
without family nearby, that becoming a mom was just the most incredible thing ever
and I instantly felt closer to my own mom and grandmother that year.
Being a mom is truly the best job in the world.
Over the years, we have celebrated Mother's Day in many different ways
from a special breakfasts that the kids would make and bring to me in bed,
to long leisurely walks together or even just a simple lunch.
(And if you decide to go the brunch route-
a gorgeous and easy recipe to make for Mother's Day
is this delicious mushroom pastry.)
For the place settings, favorite detailed dishes, pastel stemware
and a sprinkling of pretty with fresh lilac.
I have a huge crush on lilac - their blooms are so delicate and pretty- and since
they are blooming out in the yard currently
they were a perfect choice to place on the napkins with twine.
And the gold flatware adds a perfect bit of bling.
And... those roses... well,
there might be a small little secret with those roses.
Even though they look amazingly real-
these roses are faux.
You can find them at Balsam Hill for an everlasting blooming arrangement
or recreate the look with a dozen fresh white roses as well.
