Inspired by Mothers Day Brunch

It may only be Wednesday, but I’m already looking forward to spending a quiet Mother’s Day brunch with my mom this weekend. This will be the first year it’s just the two of us now that my siblings have both relocated and can’t make it home, so it will be low key but we always make it special. I’m thinking brunch at our favorite restaurant in our favorite town on the lake. To say I’m loving this pretty little brunch inspiration shoot from Margherita of Le Chat de Sucre in Florence, Italy, originally spied on Amy Atlas, is an understatement. Crusty loaves of bread, fluttering paper butterflies, and sweet jam jars are just the right amount of fuss and the perfect inspiration for your Mother’s Day brunch.

Brunch Wedding Inspiration

Good morning, friends! I took a bit of unexpected break yesterday as I traveled home from my cousin’s wedding in St. Pete Beach, but I’m so excited to kick the week off with something beautiful. Created for the Inspired Creations Contest, the Chicago team of Jaclyn Simpson Photography, Fleur, and Lily Red Studio put together a gorgeous brunch wedding inspiration shoot. With a rich honey, peach and tangerine color palette, vibrant flowers and glittering candles, the look transforms a casual brunch wedding into a truly elegant celebration. See even more of the gorgeous details on Elizabeth Anne Designs.

A Pie-Loving Pink First Birthday Party

When I spied Emerson’s first birthday party on EAD Living, I fell in love. It’s sweet and pink and loaded with fun little homemade pies and a pretty birthday cake that looks almost too good to eat. I love birthday parties that skip the cartoon characters in lieu of something a bit more homespun and the cute little details here are simply adorable. It’s as easy as a string of bunting, loads of yummy treats and a few color-coordinated pieces like strawberry lemonade and pink striped straws.

A Pretty Phoenix Engagement Shoot

Shot in downtown Phoenix, I’m loving this laid back engagement shoot from Session Nine Photographers. Anna and Zack have such a sweet chemistry together and I love the simple, playful feel of these photos. Not overly styled or overworked. Just love, great photography and the excitement of their upcoming wedding.

Sweet Finds: The Small Object

In the midst of a month that has been unusually stressful on my end, these little cupcake toppers are just plain, old-fashioned happy. I love the idea of using one of these on your little one’s birthday cake year after year as a fun family tradition. There’s something so quirky and cute about these little faces, it’s impossible not to smile as soon as you see them. Get yours from The Small Object.
