Mother’s Day Inspired

Mother's Day Inspiration

I think we should talk about Mother’s Day.  It’s time.

Let’s act like we’re all sorts of prepared to honor the women that were patient through our various temper tantrums (toddler, teenage, and otherwise).  If anyone is deserving of pink cocktails and warm scones, it’s our mamas.

I’m pretty sure that my mom is the best thing that ever happened to me… ever.    For this reason, she deserves brunch that she doesn’t have to prepared served on dishes she does not have to wash with gifts she did not have to wrap (or help me find the tape to seal).  Once a year isn’t too much to ask (actually… it’s probably waaay too little).

This year I paired up with the awesome people of HonestlyYUM for some totally proper, majorly colorful, Mother’s Day inspiration.  Everyday this week, Erica, Karen, Todd, and I will bring you a different Mother’s Day recipe, craft, or cocktail, centered around a pretty (mama approved) color.

Pink cocktails.  Yellow yums.  Lavender treats straight from the oven.  Pretty cream cake topped with white rose petals.  It’s going to be a good week indeed.

Blackberry and Lavender Scones coming your way tomorrow.

These would be amazing with Tangerine Lemon Curd.  Actually, most everything would be delicious with Tangerine Lemon Curd.

It’s as bonkers as it sounds.

Friday is cocktail day with Todd’s Raspberry Rose Fizz.

I’m not sure anything could be more dreamy.

We hope to inspire you.  We hope you make everyone sit still at the table while you take pretty pictures with your mama.  Make it memorable, for real.

Oh… ps.  Remember The Flower Recipe Book I told you about a few weeks back?  Brilliant Mother’s Day gift… though you still have to buy your mama flowers.  You’re not off the hook.

This week is brought to you with love, care, petals, eggs, gin, and sugar from:

  1. Wow! So pretty!! Any mom would be so lucky to have that setting and those foods for mothers day!! I need to try and recreate it for my mom!

  2. I adore you set up here. You have such wonderful flower arrangement skills. My mother love the combonation of rose and vanilla tea, so last time I made her some macarons in that flavour with a simple strawberry sponge. This year I am thinking of using a mint and jasmine theme.

    I look forward to your recipe

  3. Baked Egg Tartlets and the White Choc Rose Cake and Fizzy action….sounds amazing.

    And Joy these are probably THE PRETTIEST pictures you’ve ever taken. Every single image is stunning and gorgeous and just…beautiful. I felt like I was in a little fairy tale land for a minute reading your post and what you said about your mom and seeing all the gorgeous flowers and food and you captured it all so perfectly.

    I hope one day my daughter feels about me the way you feel about your mom. I loved this post :)
