[All Photos - The Grower's Daughter]
Happy Friday Girls!
This past week has been a blur. Between my sister's wedding preparations and a trip out of town earlier this week, the days have just flown past!
But, I managed to sneak in a few minutes today (between batches of cupcakes for a shower tomorrow), to post quickly on my Mother's Day Brunch.
For the past few years (since I've been married), I've hosted a tea for my moms (and sisters), in celebration of Mother's Day. I like to go all out with little hors d'oeuvres and pretty tablescapes to make the day more special.
They always appreciate it and I always have a lot of fun planning and getting things ready.
Here are a few (actually, a ton) of photos from the morning.
Enjoy, and have a lovely weekend!
Fresh cut hicaynths made the room smell divine.
A few apple blossoms from a local orchard.
They where so pretty and made a lovely centerpiece.
The table - simple and white.
I found these gorgeous napkin rings on the clearance shelf at Pottery Barn. Each number from 1 to 6 is slightly different around the edge.
A few different kinds of loose tea made for a good selection for a special occasion. I wrote the names of each on little tags and tied them to the holder with twine.
Loose leaf tea balls were provided.
The selection for brunch.
