Mother's Day Brunch

What better way to say "I love your son" than to pamper his mother on Mother's Day? Kimberly does just that for her mother in law, Jeanne, every May.  I certainly would do it for my mother and mother in law, but I work on Mother's Day, selling flowers to all the sons who've waited until the last minute to buy them. :-)

 The Ralph Lauren napkins compliment the Bordallo Pinheiro purple cabbage plates and bowls and yellow cabbage salad plates so beautifully, don't you think? 

We found these darling little napkin rings at a consignment shop.  Filled with water, they are adorned with petites-fleurs that really say "it's finally spring!!"
This is the 'take home' table.  It isn't enough that all eight guests get their own meals on wheels, they also get home made fudge, home made turtles in mason jars, and caramel chocolate popcorn.  Oh, and mini poppyseed and banana bread loaves.

The champagne bar, complete with orange themed pitcher for the OJ that goes in the Mimosas.

Strawberry preserves stand ready for the home made scones.

The girl just doesn't know when to quit!

DRAMA is Kimberly's middle name.  While she's in the midst of planning Mothers' Day 2014, we thought a peek from last year would be of interest.  We'll post the photos of her gala event just as soon as she's done washing all the dishes. 


  1. Another lovely tablescape! I know that everyone who attended this went away with a large smile on their face. Just lovely!

  2. Your table is just gorgeous. I am green with envy you have my favorite plates in purple!
    Wishing you all the best of 2015.

    1. Thanks, Marigene! They are gorgeous in purple, aren't they? One of our better consignment shop finds.
      Happy New Year and look forward to more contact with you in 2015!
