Although it’s been challenging, I have come to realize what a lucky lady I am. I have an amazing group of people willing to help out however they can. Laundry, helping me take pictures, spending time with Michael, comforting Maverick in ways that are difficult for me, anything and everything. And, it should come as no surprise, the majority of them are mothers. Moms are the best.
I am grateful beyond belief. So much so that I find myself at a loss when it comes to thinking about ways to express my gratitude. What do you do when you feel like you should do more than say ‘thank you’? You guessed it! I default to my love language- parties.
Mother’s Day Party Decorations:
Behind the scenes: The blue flower was Michael’s contribution to this party. He can be adorably frustrating when he makes last minute adjustments. Ha!
My focal point was made out of a burlap pinboard and a few Mother’s Day cards from American Greetings. Is there a better way to focus on the ladies in my life than a display of my gratitude for all to see?
Speaking of duct tape, I wrapped my vase of oranges and the glass drink containers in a teal/aqua tape, and dressed it up with a pink washi tape. Easy and still oh so adorable!
Mother’s Day Party Food:
- I didn’t want to hear “will you peel this orange for me” the entire evening.
- I liked the extra pop of orange the vase provided.
Note: This was my first time using Wilton icing. I’m torn because it isn’t smooth, but Wilton beats Betty Crocker when it comes to color selection.
Mother’s Day Party Activities:
Note: The wall art pictured above was the inspiration for this party.
I picked out the gift wrap, cards, and the picture frame from the “One-Stop Shop” from American Greetings at Walmart. It was easy. Heck, I found the aforementioned jewelry holders and wall art in the same display!
Behind the scenes: Don’t mind Michael’s ‘beach party’. He thinks planning a party means spreading the decorations out so they cover every inch of everything. It’s precious and a mess all at the same time.
