Mother's Day Brunch

Recently Dave and I hosted a Mother's Day Brunch for my Mother and his Parents and Sister.  From the moment we decided to host I began thinking of ideas to make it a special day from the menu to the details of the table scape.  We were planning to host our brunch outside in the lovely warm May sun but the finicky New England weather didn't cooperate with us. No problem though, we just moved our celebration indoors!

I really wanted to make the day extra lovely for our Moms as both have had their own set of challenges recently.  To add a bit of elegance to the table, I used my Mom's china, which I have since inherited.  (Thanks Mom!)  And of course you can never go wrong with a floral center piece so I added some pale pink miniature roses in a crystal vase...simple, elegant and right in line with the theme.


 Welcome to The Corner of Charm and Style

Welcome! I’m so happy you stopped by to read my first post!  Let me tell you a little about me and why I’m here.  My name is Shelley and I live in Connecticut with my husband of one year, Dave, and our dog, Bella.  I spend my days working in Corporate Finance but have always been fascinated by interior design and the creative process behind it.  In my spare time I find a need to embrace my desire to create and lately I’ve been finding that desire is growing more and more.  Fortunately I have the perfect outlet to unleash this desire…my home!  When Dave and I decided to move in together, I moved into his bachelor pad and together we are working on making it a home that reflects both our styles.  We’ve been working on a number of projects in a few different rooms and I’m thrilled with the way things have turned out thus far.   

Here's some shots of some projects we've done in our living room.  It's still very much a work in progress, but it gives you an idea of what I'm all about.

I plan to do a post on how I created the gallery wall soon!
