Pat had family and friends over for Mother's Day Brunch (a annual gathering) on Sunday. This year's table theme was "modern" - quite a change from past tables. She wanted everything simple yet elegant with no glitz. I think she "nailed it" as usual. The tables were stunning. Of course, we dined on wonderful food - a huge selection of homemade baked goods (scones, cinnamon rolls, breads, etc.), fresh fruit compote in individual iced serving bowls, French Toast, sausage, and the list goes on. On the side board, she had Champagne, assorted fruit juices, and coffee. It was a grand feast to say the least.

Very simple, very elegant single flower vases served as centerpieces.

Monogrammed silver is a family heirloom belonging to Pat's husband.

Fruit compote was served in an iced liner to keep it cold.

Sleek, modern glassware goes well with the trumpet champagne glass.

The salad plate and dinner plate are white alabaster from Pier I.

The charger is a beautiful seafoam blue also from Pier I this year.

  1. Hi! Your "sleek modern glassware" is the closest I can find to a pair I desperately want to increase. I thought it was Cassini but so not finding the pattern. What is yours please?
