Mother's Day Inspiration!

The combination of blue and pink is still one of my all time favorites and this beautiful styled shoot by Marissa from Konfetti Love, proves once again why.  This lady has some serious styling flair and manages to always come up with something unique and different.  So if you have not decided yet how to make Mother's Day special for your mom this year, draw some inspiration from all of Marissa's lovely ideas.

- A beautiful breakfast tray

- Custom placemats or card by having your little one drawing something for grandma

- Quality time together by enjoying a lovely tea or lunch together as a family.

My favorite detail?

The perspex flower center pieces!  Such a cost effective way of incorporating flowers without spending a fortune,  

Enjoy the images and have a lovely Mother's Day - whether you are spoiling your mum or the one being spoiled.

I love that we set aside a whole day to honour and celebrate the women who raised us. Doing something special for mom on Mother’s Day is the best way to celebrate all of the love, support, guidance and care that a mother puts into raising her children. And only after becoming a mother myself did I realise just how much time and effort it takes!

Ask most mothers what they want for Mother's Day, and you'll get more “moments ” than “presents", so what better way to celebrate than an outdoor ladies tea? For this shoot Littish from Littish Photography chose a stunning location at the AfroBoer Restaurant in Pretoria.

With bright floral arrangements, custom decor and mouthwatering cakes this Mother’s Day Shoot is to inspire and delight! For this theme I chose the soft blue and pink watercolours with stunning rose gold accents. To compliment the rose gold and gold elements, I also ended up adding a bit of orange which really gave it just enough pop of colour.

To set the table, I started off with a little DIY project I think will make any mom’s heart melt. I asked my 5 year old daughter to do an abstract watercolour painting on an A3 sized white paper. I then scanned and copied the artwork onto thicker A3 paper and voile, we then had stunning custom little placemats to use at each place setting.  It really gave the table a personal touch. I used light blue and rosegold drinkware, stunning gold rimmed blue dinner plates and the soft muted pink cake plates with rose gold cutlery to set each setting.
