With Mother’s Day on its way, some friends and I recently gathered for a simple
brunch to honor our mothers. We’ve all moved away from our childhood
homes and have ventured off to new places; we’re putting down our roots,
and forming new friendships. Even though we’re away from our families, I
wanted to do something to honor our mothers this Mother’s Day. What
better way than gathering around a
shared table to celebrate our mothers as nurturers, women, and friends.
And then, our memories fresh with their many gifts and sacrifices, to
leave with a simple memoir of our gratefulness, written and posted to
each far-away mom with care.
Today’s brunch is the third (and last) in my fashion, travel, home series with Cuyana. I worked with them to style a simple brunch, inspired by their gorgeous Japan Home Collection, and featured items from their bread and cheese line. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Cuyana on this three-part series, featuring items from their fashion, travel, and home collections.
A few friends brought food, and
another made whey lemonade. A favorite dish was Tia’s buttermilk crepes
with greek yogurt and freshly squeezed lemon juice filling. My dear
friends Lauren and Rachel put together effortless arrangements in mason
jars using eucalyptus, queen anne’s lace, peonies, poppies and an
abundance of fresh herbs. Jennifer, the product of her mother’s
invite-the-mailman-to-dinner southern hospitality, opened up her
light-filled home overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. She also designed
the thoughtful gift to send to our mothers – a charming
fill-in-the-blanks card full of personal memories, just to let mom know
The prettiest of cheese domes, from Cuyana’s Japan Home Collection, and the most charming hostess.
Discovering how to infuse our lives—ourselves, our work, our relationships, our homes, and our entertaining spaces—with simple beauty, more intention, and slow living principles.
