 Mother's Day Party Inspiration-01

{1. gold chargers | 2. fizz cocktail glass | 3. glass vases | 4. tissue pom | 5. spring cocktail recipe | 6. brunch}

With Mother’s Day just over two weeks away I’m looking forward to celebrating with my mom and mother in-law.  I have some ideas floating around my head that I would like to organize, and the inspiration board that I created above has been a great starting point to help me do just that.

Four things that are front of mind:
1.  I want this day to be special for my mother and mother in-law.
2.  I want to have a relaxing, simple brunch.
3.  Angles.  I’m seeing them everywhere and am loving them.
4.  I want to use a coral and gold colour palette.

What is so wonderful about this colour palette is that it is fresh and on trend but also traditional.  Perfect for a multi- generational occasion like Mother’s Day.

I’ll also be using a new Mother’s Day printable party collection which will be available in the shop this weekend.

Are you planning a celebration for Mother’s Day?

New Beginnings

Spring has been teasing us around here.  The daffodiles are starting to bloom and as I write this post, the snow is falling.  We start some mornings off with rain coats and end them with winter coats, hats and mitts.  But after a long winter, spring isn’t so much a season as a state of mind. The hope of spring…and new beginnings.

And so I think it is a perfect time for something new for me too.  I am very excited about getting started with this blog and seeing what is to come.  I’m planning to do a lot of celebrating. I hope you will join me!
