Mother’s Day Brunch Shoot with Joy the Baker & Honestly YUM

May 6, 2013





Happy Monday, I hope you had a nice weekend! Today I’m so excited to share a beautiful Mother’s Day Brunch shoot collaboration with Joy the Baker and Honestly Yum that I helped style a few weeks ago. Pretty pastels inspired a delicious menu that included berry scones, a fizzy pink cocktail, baked egg tarts, and the most incredible rose petal cake you’ll ever see. Visit Joy the Baker and Honestly YUM all week for the recipes and the step-by-step DIY for the adorable vintage plate cake tier you see.

Concept & recipes: Joy the Baker & Honestly YUM // Photos above & mood board: Paola Parsons // Floral design: Heather Williams of Twig &Twine // Dish & linen rentals: DishWish LA

    Fabulous! This time for me it’s all about the dishes! And flowers! I love the square plates and the beautiful flowered plates — and the lace. And in an orange grove! What mother doesn’t want to be there? This must have been a really fun shoot, and you did a fabulous job! XOXOX, Mert
