Celebrating Mom. Mother’s Day Solutions.

“I want to show Mom I really love her but due to my work schedule and family obligations, I really don’t have time to prepare for a brunch or lunch. What should I do?”

Sound familiar?

This was a recent panicked email from a client. I quickly responded to calm her nerves and we have since coordinated the entire brunch for 10 family members. Menu, drink selections, table décor, everything; Even scheduling the cleaning team for the Friday before so that she no longer needs to worry, simply needs to relax and enjoy.

This situation can come up for any type of occasion or person you would like to show “a little love” for, so I thought I would share an idea that she and I discussed that can be prepared the night before and allows you to spend more time with your guests.

A Self-Service Champagne Table:



Cover a small table with a white linen cloth; add a second layer with a natural linen napkin overlay.

Select a silver tray {polish a week in advance} to place your champagne flutes on. Mix-and-Match the glassware, most of us have been given pairs of flutes over the years rather than a full set, they all work together no matter the size or shape.

Select a dozen of your favorite flower and place in a vase on the table to add life.

 

Linen hemstitched cocktail napkins elevate the display but beautiful paper napkins can be used as well.

An ice bucket filled with ice to keep the champagne cold can be set out at the last-minute. {Be sure to chill your champagne over night to ensure it is at the perfect temperature.}  

As guests arrive pop the cork and celebrate!

 

Now tell me in the comments below what your top 3 concerns are about entertaining at home? What would be your dream solution to those concerns?
