MY MOTHER’S DAY TABLE
Mother’s day is a special occasion that happens once a year, and most of us want our moms to have the perfect day and feel extra special. We want to show them that the world wouldn’t be the same without them. Sometimes, I get very anxious the day before as I tend to overthink on how to plan a perfect day for her.
This pandemic brought many unfortunate and unexpected twists and turns in everyone’s lives, but there is something I’m genuinely thankful for, and that is the fact that I could spend mother’s day with my mother. In fact, I had a couple of years without celebrating mother’s day with her. Ever since I moved to Boston, the days I get to share with her are brief, so I decided to organize the best brunch for her within my capabilities.
I believe in the saying “like mother, like daughter” when it comes to my relationship with my mother. She has taught me to notice every little detail in everything I do. For instance, she even taught me how to make beautiful flower arrangements with the flowers we had in our garden in Caracas.
I wanted to create a table that would dazzle her. One of my mother’s favorite hobbies is taking courses on how to properly arrange flowers. She enjoys arranging flowers all over the house, sometimes she even talks to them … That’s why I decided to make her a brunch with her favorite snacks and flowers.
I bought some rose-colored plates with flower prints from #TARGET; the napkins had the same prints as the plates, a beautiful pair. I added some petals and leaves around the table for a final floral touch.
I decided to add a board of cold cuts, cheeses, and jams that I bought at #Wholefoods. As usual, I picked up my favorite orange juice from #TatteBakery, that in my opinion it’s the best one in #Boston. I added two types of desserts, the #Wholefoods forest berry tart and the famous #KaneDonuts which are also a must for me!
I hope you enjoy it!
