For my 2012 resolutions, I had given myself a goal of “bringing brunch back”. Now that our kitchen is mostly/kind of/all the way done, it seemed like a great time to host a Mother’s Day Brunch.
Both JT and I’s mothers and siblings gathered together yesterday for la Fete de la Mere. There was food and relaxation for all. We had a coffee crunch right before the guests were to arrive (e.g. it was missing and we needed coffee STAT) so I didn’t snap any pictures before nor did I want to trouble our guests and break up the flow of the little gathering so I didn’t snap any “durings” either. But I do have a few “afters” to share:
What’s Mother’s Day without a banner?
Or “MOMOMOMOMOM” napkin rings (I just printed them out on our home printer, cut them down and used some double stick tape. The green napkins I snagged at Ikea. See the new stove in the background (#3)– it’s amazing and we love it).
And no brunch is complete without chocolate covered bacon . . . (so I’ve heard, I don’t actually eat bacon . . . )
I had some canvas left over from a deconstructed slip cover so I zig-zag stitched some blue and black lines on it to make a tablecloth at the last minute (if I would have had more time and some white thread, I probably would have serged the edges but for now it has a little more rustic look. . . .
So that was the most of it. Food and family makes for a nice weekend. Plus we didn’t have to leave our house! I hope everyone had a great weekend as well. Cheers – CT
Love the table cloth!
Thanks Hannah — although I still haven’t surged the edges (hangs head in shame). I thought it might be just a party decoration but here it is two weeks later and it’s still on the table.
