Our Mother’s Day

We hosted our families for Mother’s Day this past weekend and I was determined to eat out on our patio since we had just installed a new fence and new sod! So we threw up a tent over the patio and hoped for the best! I honestly think it turned out so lovely.


As I’ve mentioned on my Instagram, my husband and I LOVE to entertain and throw parties. Mother’s Day is no exception! Normally we would plan out an extravagant meal to cook with plenty of apps and sides, but we decided to go a different route this time around and order majority of the food from catering.

We ordered our apps, sides, and desserts from Susan Lawrence in Chappaqua, New York. Everything was SO delicious and look at that cake!!

My husband, always the loving chef, made a gorgeous cedar plank salmon and a filet to accompany the catering. Everything was so perfect and delicious. We even have plenty of leftovers to enjoy for dinner the rest of the week.

For decor, I went very simple with blue and white. I found these gingham and navy tablecloths on Amazon and we filled my Mor-Mor’s happiness jars with blue and white hydrangeas.  I highly recommend in investing in white cotton cloth napkins. I purchased these a few years ago from Amazon (always coming through!!) and I use them ALL the time. They are surprisingly easy to clean and they go with EVERYTHING.


Of course I also had my outfit match the decor with this navy top from Tuckernuck, a blue and white Hermes scarf, White J. Crew Jeans, and these Ginger Jar earrings

What did you do for Mother’s Day?
