First Fête at the Farm: Mother's Day Recap

This weekend we celebrated our first official party at the new house for Mother's day.  Daniel and I hosted both of our families and had a great time with the people we love!

I designed all of the printables for the celebration to coordinate with the free brunch invitation I featured here a few weeks ago!  The welcome sign was one of my favorite details from the lunch--it turned out to be a much needed decoration to dress up our yard since we don't have any flowers blooming (yet!).

Another detail of the lunch that I really loved was the drink station.  Between both of our families, we had around 20 guests.  With that many people for a seated meal, I wanted to make sure that everyone had easy access to food and drink.  Despite all of the decorations everywhere else, I must confess that I think the giant bow was my favorite décor item.

I made all of the flower arrangements from things that were blooming on the farm.  Saturday morning I hopped on the golf cart and drove around cutting flowers and arranged them later that day.   It was creative heaven for me.

I think we served 5,000 desserts.  My sister Georgia got home from Paris on Friday night and brought back Macarons.  I think I went into a sugar coma.  It was amazing.

We had an amazing time celebrating the moms, grandmothers, and aunts we love so very much.  I couldn't imagine a better way to have our first Fête in our new home!

Linking with Biana & Meghan for weekending.
