Happy Saturday! The weather is yucky today here in DC, but despite the dreary weather I'm determined to have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.
In fact, I'm enjoying watching my little girl at her dance class (in between typing this post), which I do every Saturday morning and the smile on her face melts my heart! I would typically also be at my son's football game too, but the rain rained on that parade. Being a mompreneur works well for me because of balance and the village who helps me manage motherhood and entrepreneurship! So this Mother's Day weekend, I'm celebrating being my own kind of superwoman, and rocking out motherhood.
Speaking of balance, last Saturday I not only was there for Cam's game and Cassidy's class, but I also designed a sensational soiree that was dedicated to celebrating fellow moms! This mommies and mimosas brunch event was truly special and beautiful. The fabulous event hostess, who is also one of my dear friends, really wanted to make sure all the ladies were treated to an enjoyable, kid-free afternoon, so with my help along with a private chef, we collectively got the job done. The event was held at her home, and I had so much fun transforming her living room with the help of Select Event Rentals.
The black, gold and hot pink color palette was the perfect mix of bold and feminine for this ladies soiree. I decked the tables out in black sequin linens, gold rimmed china, gold flatware, gold rimmed stemware and of course beautiful florals. The invited guests loved the decor, and couldn't stop raving about the delicious brunch prepared by Victory Chef, which included shrimp and grits, omelettes, breakfast potatoes, collard greens, fried chicken and french toast. You would think after such a yummy meal that we'd be in a food coma, but quite the contrary. We enjoyed conversing, connecting, encouraging and laughing with one another literally for hours! As moms, we truly need those times to just share and enjoy the company of others moms who get it, so this event was definitely a success.
How are you celebrating Mother's Day this weekend?! Share in the comments below. In addition to spending time with my mom, children and family, this weekend, I'll also be thinking of and praying for all of those whose moms and/or children are in heaven, that God's love will be with you in an extra special way.
