An Outdoor Mother’s Day Brunch

Hosting a brunch for Mother’s Day? I have got some ideas for you! If the weather is going to be nice, plan to have your bunch outdoors. I have some great inspiration photos to help you set the perfect outdoor table. You don’t have to use throw away items just because you are outdoors. A simple tale runner or table cloth can be a great add to your outdoor dining table.

Stripes are in right now and those colors are a perfect match for a Mother’s Day celebration. This table setting is very simple. Look at those centerpieces!

Prints and colors set a BOLD table. These bright colors are perfect for an outdoor brunch.

Simple is the perfect way to go. The runner is the vocal point on this table. I love the way they tied off the ends. A few candle jars make for a pretty centerpiece option.

 

Enjoy!

Summertime looks for the home!

Memorial Day weekend is here and the unofficial start to the summer season has begun! This weekend will be filled with trips to the beach, concerts, BBQ’s, holiday shopping sales, and plenty of fun in the sun. Being from New Jersey, my summer season means several trips down the parkway to the beautiful Jersey Shore. (No, you will not find me “fist pumping” with DJ Pauly D or anything that MTV has led you to believe.) Each shore town has its own identity and is full of beautiful little independent shops. My favorite thing to do while at the shore is to shop for new coastal-inspired items to take home with me and decorate my bedroom with. I am a lover of all things summer. Anchors. Mermaids. Sea shells. Boats. Tropical flowers. Bright colors. I am a fan of it all!

I have compiled a list of my top coastal finds to help get your home summer-ready! There’s something to fit every budget and every interest! It will feel like summer all year round!
