~Mother's Day Brunch~

With Mother's day around a month away . . .
have you made plans for your mom already?

A few close friends of mine are throwing a Mother's Day brunch at my house.

My inspiration:

pretty in pink party for Mother's Day!

My inspiration for the pink theme was this beautiful pink and orange floral table decor. The tweed-wrapped vases are a DIY project from Martha Stewart. (iWrap fabric around inexpensive glass containers.) Place an assortment of pink hued carnations, dahlias, tulips and spiky gerbera daisies into the vases for a lovely spring look. Set your floral arrangements atop a blush pink tablecloth accented with white plates and white napkins. Set a floral-adorned favor on top of each folded napkin.

On a table off to the side set out an
arrangement of place cards. For more intimate family gatherings I would allow guests to select their own seats. Just make sure to sit the guest of honor, your mom, at the head of the table. On the other end of your place card table, display your dessert, a sweet pink 2-layer cake decorated with gum-paste rose petals.

Serve a pink cocktail or whatever drink is Mom's favorite. This
pink cocktail entitled the Long-Stemmed Rose is just rose flavored vodka garnished with a rose petal.

Lastly, though this is the probably one of first things you would do, is choose from Also, as an added bonus they include pink colored envelopes which are bright and cheery to receive in the mail.
Or do like I do and make your own! 

We will throw in some turquoise and creams . . .

sit at a fun decorated table . . .

And enjoy our Mommy's!

Do you have plans?
Any suggestions for food?
