Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas

With Mother’s Day being this Sunday, we have to start thinking about our table setting and our decor for this very special holiday celebrating a very special someone. We have ideas for centerpieces and actual table sets,  and we will include where to get these beautiful items. Typically, you want the decorations and tablescape to be feminine and light. Keep that in mind when picking out plates and napkins as well. Let’s start with the centerpieces…

Floral Centerpieces



Go head, use some of your every day drinking glasses filled with water and place a beautiful flower in it. Line them up right down the middle of the table on a linen table runner to really give it an elegant, yet casual feel.



Don’t over think it! Gather many flowers and candles and just place them sporadically down the table runner. You can either collect flowers from you garden, your local grocery store, or make the flowers. DIY yourself a centerpiece by making these lovely flowers. There are many tutorials and how-to’s on youtube and Pinterest. Check them out!



Combine flowers and candles in a different way, perhaps on a cake platter. Pick any color you would like, place a candle right in the middle, and spread flowers all around the candle. If you want to add a more glamorous, chic feel, add pearls intertwined with the flowers. It’s sure to give a sophisticated touch.



Collect, from your local craft store, a bunch of different sizes and shapes of bottles. Place a different flower in each bottle, yet keep the same color scheme. Add in a couple different colored candles still in the same color scheme, and spread this collection out, distributed quite evenly over the table runner. There you go; you have yourself a centerpiece! Now on to the table sets…




With bright colors, such as the peach we show here, stick to white plates, and to give it a girly, more feminine touch, these plates have a gold edge paired with gold silverware. To show your mother some appreciation on Mother’s Day, along with her gift, use a little spa item as the name plate. Here, we have soothing bath fizzers in a white burlap bag to give it cute packaging as well. Find an even better place setting here.



This beautiful Martha Stewart Dinnerware Set goes beautifully on the table for Mother’s Day and will be unbearably appealing with all over the centerpieces we mentioned above. The polka dots with the blush pink has a very ladylike appeal that coordinates perfectly with the floral centerpieces and the gold flatware.



This tablescape is intended for a table setting that doesn’t include a centerpiece. The main eye-catcher is the floral arrangement that is on each plate. Grab a few Moscow mule drinking glasses and some flowers from your local florist to combine and top a beautiful place setting. You can use this as a name plate by attaching a little card with each person’s name written on it right in the center of the floral arrangement, or distinguish each person with a picture of the mother and her child. You can get these Moscow mule mugs here.

There are so many different ways to decorate the table for Mother’s Day. Remember to keep it light, fresh, and feminine to achieve that beautiful, special look. Good luck with your table, and have a Happy Mother’s Day!

Event Planning | Back to School Style

With July coming to an end we see summer washing away like waves on the beach leaving us with nothing but sun-kissed skin and warm memories of Summer 2013!  But let’s be honest no summer can be complete without some kind of  end of the season bash, bonfire, or for the classier folk, soirée!! We decided to focus on the kids this time around since this season is really more about them celebrating their freedom before they head back to school, kicking and screaming along the way!!

With Pinterest being everyone’s go source for creative ideas we took a look and found some great ideas for your own “Back to School” Function.  Check out the photos below to get inspired!


Love the black backdrop makes you feel like your in a classroom! No to mention all the fun school supply inspired snacks!! So creative!!!


An “I scream for Ice Cream” Bar is a great spin on the classic summer treat!


Chalk paint table top for kids to write on, practical and creative!


Having your own library were kids can bring an old book to the party and leave with a new one they might enjoy! Helps get them in that school spirit and keeps your party expenses low!


This table setting was just too cute for words, we had to add it in the mix! Push pin name tag settings, tape roll napkin holders, cork board placemats….all great ways to incorporate school supplies as decor and they can take with them as party favors to use for the year!!


Apples, milk bottles, and blocks great ideas for maybe a younger age group!


And of course we couldn’t leave out the people who mold our young minds, the teachers deserve a last hooray all their own before the craziness begins!!

Event planning can be just as fun as actually attending it, but for those of who don’t get the same thrills as we do, why not let us take over?!! Call us for your next event and let us save you the headache that sometimes comes along with it!
