Pink & Yellow Spring Brunch

Kate of Studio LIME Design sent me these pics of a pretty brunch she hosted for mother’s day.  The simple modern design would work perfectly for any ladies get-together and has some ideas that are easy to re-create.  I particularly like the pink and yellow color combo, and the recycled cans painted, tied with ribbon, and filled with flowers.  Read on for what Kate has to say about the brunch… 
“I wanted to host a sweet and simple brunch for my mom and mother-in-law to honor them and show how much my husband and I appreciate all of the hard work, dedication, and selflessness they’ve displayed and modeled for us {new parents ourselves!} over the years.
My tablescape was inspired by the beautiful and soft springy colors that surround us at this time of the year. I used a pale yellow fabric to cover my place mats and some brighter pink and yellow fabrics/ribbons to cover the vases holding floral blooms to infuse a little more color to my table. A large lantern with candles was used to anchor the table.
At each mothers’ place setting was a ceramic pitcher filled with a floral bouquet and a simple white frame holding a picture of her with her children from a long, long time ago. This was a special touch for each guest of honor, added to springy vibe of the table, and doubled as each mom’s Mother’s Day gift as well.
Each guest also had a mini menu tucked inside their brunch napkin listing the eats for the day. The hit item on the menu was a “Banana Nut French Toast,” which couldn’t have been more simple to make {tips on my blog}. And mimosas were served to kick off the brunch because what’s brunch without mimosas?!?!
I also created a sweets bar using the sideboard in my dining room. I propped a fabric covered backdrop to add a pop of color and a twig tree with hanging crystals. On to the good part — the desserts — mini powdered doughnuts, sugar cookies with flower fondant toppers, and a pound cake with cream cheese frosting to top it all off. One of my favorite quotes, which explains the awesome responsibility we have as mothers so perfectly, was also added to the dessert spread.”
Thanks for sharing the lovely brunch with us, Kate.  All these ideas can be used in bridal showers, birthdays, and baby showers as well!

    It looks beautiful!
    Can I ask about the yellow fabric in the background?? Do you remember what the fabric was called? I love IT!

    Thanks!

    Such an adorable brunch! That flowered fabric backdrop is so pretty (an unusual rendering of cherry blossoms in yellow). Love the personal touches Kate describes…especially the photos of the moms with their children in their younger days. Those are irreplaceable!

  3. Amazing!

  4. Thank you for your kind words, ladies! I bought the fabric at Joanne's — I don't remember the exact name, but it was from their Home Decor fabric line. Hope that helps a little!

  5. Everything looks so beautiful! I love the idea and the decor..
