An Eclectic Brunch Tablescape for Three on Mother’s Day

I live about 3,000 miles away from my mom, so Mother’s Day is always a bittersweet holiday for me. I always send a card and flowers, but a big part of me still wishes we could celebrate together. Now that Sean and I are engaged though, we spend the day with his mom and it’s almost as good. I’m so lucky to have found a partner who’s family is welcoming, loving, and just plain awesome. So this year, we’re planning to celebrate with a brunch that’s a bit eclectic in feel.

How To Style An Eclectic Brunch Tablescape for Three on Mother’s Day

For some reason, I always prefer a table runner to a tablecloth… probably because our table is marble and looks so pretty on it’s own. I’ve had this gold striped runner for years and, while it is no longer made, this one is a good alternative. Gotta have that pop of gold!

Ever since scoring these vintage plates, I can’t stop staring at them. The pattern is soooo special and the pop of gold makes them an excellent choice when hosting brunch. I paired them with peachy toned linen napkins and modern cutlery for an eclectic vibe.

Here are some similar patterned plates:

And why not layer on just a litttttle more gold?? I tend to break the rules when it comes to what I put into different glasses. These are meant to be rocks glasses, but I’d totally serve champagne in them — especially for Mother’s Day. They’d be very pretty with rosé, too.

Now all that’s missing is some good champagne and a quiche made with eggs from our chickens! How do you celebrate Mother’s Day?
