Have you started planning your Mother’s Day celebration yet? We are hosting my mom and grandma at our house this year so I have started dreaming out what I would like to happen. The trick is the execution so how this actually turns out is TBD. 🙂

Mother's Day2I would start with a bright and colorful table of hot pink and orange.

Mother's Day1I would use beautiful place settings like these Tiffany bamboo sterling silver utensils.

Mother's Day3I would have plenty of flowers to soften the table and make the room smell lovely.

Mother's Day4No party is complete without a bar so I would have a Bloody Mary bar…

Mother's Day5…and also a mimosa bar! Because, why not?

Mother's Day6I would serve Eggs Benedict (or some version of it)…

Mother's Day8…and also bacon because no breakfast is complete without it!

Woman of the Year

Tonight, my family and I are attending a very important event. We will be at the 2011 Woman of the Year ceremony!!

My mom was nominated by a colleague and has been recognized as one of THE 50 women of the year in Oklahoma!! I mean, how cool is that?! So impressive and one of the highest achievements you can receive! I love that someone thought so highly of her to not only nominate her, but a panel thought so highly of her that she was recognized as one of the 50 women that should be recognized throughout the state of Oklahoma. We have a lot of impressive leaders in our state – and my mom is one of them!!

Tonight, I will be dressed up with the rest of the family, telling everyone within ear shot, “oh, I’m here for my mom!” I’ll be hooting and hollering when they call her name and probably embarrassing her to death. Come to think of it…this is probably the best payback ever for the times she embarrassed me growing up! Hah!!

After all 50 women are announced, they will recognize the one official Woman of the Year…fingers crossed they call out my mom’s name!

Renew with BHLDN

Is three years of marriage too early to renew your vows? Because I want to have another ceremony and wear everything from BHLDN! (Beholden, without the vowels) This is the newest concept from Anthropologie and I am in L.O.V.E.!

I want to wear this gown and have another huge party with my closest family and friends! I love these pleats and the way they fall on the body. I also love this color for a second wedding/renewal ceremony. See?! It is fate.

Aside from the gorgeous clothes and jewelry, I love the images and photographs shown throughout the website. Every picture is a piece of art!

I think this dress would be perfection on a mother of the bride! I am not a huge fan of the one-shoulder dress, but I love the way this looks and the way the seams lay on the body would be super flattering for those millions of photos!

I am very excited to see what BHLDN does and also if I get to see any of these pretties in person! Check out the website for yourself, here.
