Create a spring-fresh party theme that's perfect for a Mother's Day brunch -- using these ideas from entertaining guru Jennifer Sbranti.
This Mother's Day Brunch tabletop design is all about sleek white dishes, beautiful flowers, and springtime-fresh colors: shades of lavender, lilac, and lime. The overall feel is refreshing and breezy, just like the season.
Set a single purple-hued flower in the center of each setting. Attach a place card to each stem with ribbon.
For the gravy boat, add green willow or moss balls along with flowers in shades of purple.
Add purple tea or votive candles along the length of the runner.
Personalize the table with a framed photo of Mom or Mom and kids.
Embellish one of the vases with her first initial using lime green die-cut letters.
To keep things affordable (or even just to avoid doing dishes), you can replace the ceramic dishware with sturdy paper dishes in rich purple, white, and lime green.
Stack bars of purple soap and embellish with twine and purple blossoms. Or group spa products such as lavender aromatherapy candles and purple guest soaps together on sleek white trays. Fill glass jars with fresh or dried lavender stems and bath salts.
