Hey Mama!

In honor of Mother's Day yesterday, I wanted to do something fun and special for my mom. My husband and I decided to throw a brunch! I made my favorite French toast recipe (cinnamon French vanilla) with scrambled eggs, fruit salad, and... donut holes! But, we didn't stop there.

We wanted it to be as beautiful as it was yummy so I decided to have some fun with the decor. I found this great template for placemats from The Alison Show and had the design printed as small posters. I also made a trip to one of my guilty pleasure stores, Paper Source. There I found these pretty pink and orange floral toothpicks, a festive banner and metallic silver straws. We also bought some fresh tulips in various shades of pink and a few pink and silver balloons to really make the decor pop! We used the toothpicks to take our donut holes up a notch and used the straws in glasses of mimosas with topped with frozen raspberries. 

Not only was my mom thrilled with the meal, but she was so appreciative of the love we put into the decor. You don't always have to go out to a fancy restaurant to make people feel special. It's the amount of effort you put into holidays that really make them memorable. 

Check out a few more of the photos below and share how you celebrated with us on Twitter or Instagram @TheStylishOne_. We love you, Mom!
