With Mother's Day less than two weeks away, today I have the opportunity to share a pretty Mother's Day Luncheon tablescape with you thanks to some beautiful products that have been supplied by Balsam Hill.
I love having the opportunity through this blog to share inspiration like this with you, but unfortunately this is one tablescape that won't get put to use in my home. My mama lives across the ocean in Ireland so I won't get to be with her this Mother's Day but she will be here in June to celebrate Conor's Christening. Of course, I'm a mother too - to two amazing little boys. My husband is the most loving and supportive man I know (alongside my Dad, of course!) and I know he will plan something special for me. Usually, it's a spa day or something similar that allows me to get out of the house and have some "me" time, which is always very much appreciated!
Whether you're celebrating or remembering your own mother or being celebrated yourself, I think this pretty table setting will be one you'll love.
Instead of going for the obvious and using pink as the primary color for this arrangement, I instead chose to focus on the small bits of vibrant orange in the arrangements. When I came across these stemmed mandarins in the grocery store, I knew they would be the perfect (inexpensive!) accent.
I was originally thinking of doing a brunch for this post but then I made these semi-homemade chocolate orange meringues and THEN added some colorful macarons...and realized the sugar content was probably a bit much for a brunch. But if we call it a luncheon, it's a little bit more acceptable, right?!
I know what you're thinking. What are semi-homemade meringues? Well, they're simply store bought meringues drizzle with melted chocolate and then sprinkled with some orange zest. I dare you to only eat one of these and have the will power to stop at that. I'm not ashamed to say that I ate the majority of the props after these photos were taken :-) #definitelynotpaleo
I love the blue and orange together. Complementary colors on the color wheel will always work for you if you're stuck trying to come up with a color combo!
Whatever your plans are this Mother's Day, I hope you'll take the time to celebrate and remember all the amazing mothers out there. It can be a thankless and exhausting job at times, but I certainly wouldn't trade it for the world!
