Happy Mother’s Day
As I’ve gotten older, setting the table has become something I truly enjoy. I remember growing up it was a chore, as I didn’t appreciate the creative opportunity it presented. Luckily, with time, I’ve realized that creating a beautiful table is truly an act of love. There’s no better way to celebrate whomever it is that you’re dining with!
On that note, in case you’re hosting Mother’s Day brunch at home to celebrate the special women in your life, I wanted to share a table I just styled in collaboration with Juliska. The brand happens to be one that I first heard about while working at Spanx. Many of the women there who got engaged registered for the dishes as a part of their pre-wedding protocol.
Once it was my turn, I, too, fell in love with the simple yet sophisticated styles that define the collections. As I’ve hosted parties, my collection has grown. Of course, I was beyond flattered at the opportunity to work with such a storied brand.
A Beautiful Brunch Table
This beautiful brunch table is styled with some of my favorite recent additions. These Arabella Petal Pink Footed Goblets add just a hint of color to my otherwise neutral collection. I also am fond of this tray/platter, which is a hybrid design between the Berry & Thread and French Panel collections.
I was also delighted to learn about the namesake jewelry collection from the founder of Juliska, Capucine De Wulf. I picked a pair of earrings that share the same sentiment as the dishes: simple, sophisticated and well-priced.
Because I know I’ll get asked, wanted to mention that Elle is wearing an outfit from Rainey’s Closet. This delightful company rents children’s clothing for special occasions and shoots. I highly recommend visiting their site. You will fall in love with all of the choices! One of the reasons I love Rainey’s is they encourage mamas (like me) to get into the photos with their littles while dressed in the beautiful outfits. I’m so glad that Elle and I have these special photos. They are a perfect Mother’s Day treat.
Enjoy looking through these images and take a tip from me (especially if you’re a mama who’s pulling double duty as hostess). Don’t overthink the table! I didn’t want to go crazy with florals, so added ivy to the centerpiece. It acted as a lovely and romantic table runner. Because this was a brunch table, I placed coffee mugs out as that means less back and forth to the kitchen. Bonus: the saucers also added a textured touch.
Hope you have a lovely day celebrating! Thank you to Juliska for treating me to the glasses and tray in order to make this table extra special.
