We over at Paper Fox LA and the Granny Girls (Amanda Crew and Amber Borycki) have been planning to do some sort of collaboration this year and finally decided to do a Mother’s Day Brunch together. As we were going through the details, we realized that the majority of our moms lived far away and we probably wouldn’t be seeing them this Mother’s Day! I was bummed that we would be planning such a beautiful event that our mother’s wouldn’t get to enjoy, until I remembered that Amber of the Granny Girls was pregnant and going to be a mommy just before Mother’s Day. So, obviously, we threw her an early Mother’s day celebration!
Paper Fox LA is all about blending bright, modern colors palettes with soft details. For this event we decided wanted to bump up the traditional soft, mother’s day floral look with an edgier color scheme, paired with giant paper flowers and geometric shapes. I loved mixing the natural birch branches with the surreal watercolor color painted flowers for our centerpiece. My favorite detail of the event was our tassel garland backdrop. I just adore seeing the bright paper in a rustic, natural setting like this!
The Granny Girls whipped up their most amazing Blueberry Buttermilk Scones for the event and looked beautiful on our bright CB2 yellow appetizer plates. And they tasted ah-mazing, of course. They also made these gorgeous dip-dyed napkins for the table setting, for which you can learn how to make on their blog!
We had so much fun celebrating Amber and drinking our Blood Orange Mimosa’s. We hope these photos inspire you to throw a Mother’s Day event for the mother’s in your life!
If you don't feel like making any of the pretty paper decorations, they're also available for sale at the Paper Fox LA shop!
Keep your eye out for more DIY posts from this event right here on Zooey and the Granny Girls! For now, we hope you enjoy this little sneak peek of all that is to come.
