Blue and White for Mother's Day

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day!  I had a wonderful time hosting my mom and sister for brunch yesterday.  Later in the afternoon, we celebrated with my in-laws.  As my kids would say, "It was a busy-fun day!"

Blue and white table with pink tulips
I set the kitchen table in a casual blue and white theme.  The pink tulips added a pop of color.

 It rained (again) early in the morning but the sun finally came out later.  Too bad it wasn't warm enough to eat outside like we have in the past!

Since the kids were joining us for our brunch, I kept the settings very casual...maybe a little too casual.  I later wished I added something on the napkin but I didn't have time.

I was too busy opening cards and presents from the boys and cooking the brunch.  I kept the menu simple with cut up fruit, broccoli quiche and a mixed green salad...and mimosas of course!

Blue and white accessories in white kitchen
After setting the table in blue, I decided to pull some blue accessories from my office to decorate around the kitchen.

Pink roses
I dressed up the island with more pink flowers.  Unfortunately, this was the only picture I took of them.  My mom and sister arrived just as I was taking this picture and I gave them these roses to take home.  You can also see the pink bouquet in the background which was from the boys.  They know how much I love pink! 

Blue and white vase in white kitchen
After everyone left, this is how my island looked.  The blue and white vase is from my office and the branches are from my master bathroom.

I had also added more blue on the ledge above the stove.  I really love how it all looks against the white in here.

I even switched the pot on my kitchen plant to a blue and white one from my office.

But I didn't have a blue plate to change the spring vignette in the corner.  

Mother's Day Vignette
But I did have a cute, "Home is where your mom is" sign that the kids bought me last year.  I think this worked well for the special day!  Cheers to all the moms!

Where did you spend your Mother's Day?

  1. Sometimes I think the casual look is actually more appreciated, as you have more time to spend on the things that truly matter. Love all the pops of blue around the kitchen.

    We spent the day on the road, all 14 hours, coming home from visiting my MIL in Michigan.

  4. I always love the combination of blue and white. At least if you couldn't eat outside, you got to enjoy your beautiful kitchen. We ended up staying inside for brunch too. Hooray for the return of the sun. Happy Belated Mother's Day, Shelley!
