Today my mom hosted a girls brunch attended by a couple of the sisters, one granny, and myself. I set the table and she made the food. It took place in her blue + white dining room so we used mix and match china plates. The plate above, named Charlotte, is my favorite.
We ate tiny little sandwiches topped with salmon, tuna, herbed cheese topped with fresh garden herb. Purple cauliflower was also on the menu. It's natural + isn't it cute?
For dessert, we ate chocolate cupcakes, strawberries, almond cake (from farmer's market) and more chocolate!
I was a little camera happy . Please excuse the ultra-long post.
I love long posts… especially if they are beautiful! Everything looks yummy!
You’ve captured the best of spring…and moms…all in one post! Simply beautiful

This is very late Chelsea, but I did enjoy seeing all the pictures of that delicious food on Mother’s Day and it made me drool. I am afraid I wasn’t as lucky, spent Mother’s Day afternoon at grandaughter Jolynne’s with daughter Heather, and we had pretty plain food, but good and the great grandchildren were fun!
