Mothers Day Table Challenge...

I love EVERYTHING about Mother's Day!  I love what it represents.  I love that I am a mum and that my babies love honouring me.  I love being able to have a day to spoil my mum and show her how much I appreciate her.  I love the little handmade gifts and the things from the school Mothers Day stall.  I love Mothers Day shopping.  I love the stores being filled with lots of pink and feminine and gorgeous gifts.  I love the weather in May.  I love EVERYTHING about the day!!!

Last month I noticed a Mothers Day Table Challenge competition being held by  Lily Chic Events and Luminoso Blu and couldn't wait to enter!  I wanted to create an intimate and simple table, and used my 2 sisters and my mum as the inspiration ~ a lovely setting outdoors with a delicious brunch and some yummy treats to finish.  I also hoped to inspire others to do something simple yet gorgeous for their own Mothers Day. 

Here is our winning entry:

I wanted a menu that was casual yet scrumptious and this is what I came up with:

Pumpkin Soup with mini toast
Bacon & Zucchini Slice
Ham, Cheese and Lettuce Rolls with Tomato relish and sour cream
Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes
Chocolate Selection Platter
Rainbow Cake
Jelly & Meringues
I also used a selection of products that are available in our store at, as well as some of my favourite things from my personal collection x

I absolutely loved seeing all the other entries ~ everyone submitted such wonderful tables x
A big thank you to Lily Chic Events and Luminoso Blu, along with the judges from Just Call Me Martha and Little Big Company for running such an inspiring and fun challenge.
