Hi everyone!

I'm Valerie, and I blog at Occasionally Crafty, where I love to make simple, beautiful projects anyone can do!  You'll find Craft and DIY Tutorials, Printables, simple Recipes, thoughts on Parenting, and my favorite, Seasonal and Holiday Decor.

I'm a wife, mother to three school-aged kids, avid reader, occasional crafter, and lover of all things music.  I graduated from BYU, taught high school band, then left to stay home with my kids.  
 Blogging gave me a much-need creative outlet when my kids were small.  Now, when I'm not blogging, I'm teaching piano lessons, shuffling my kids off to school and activities, volunteering at my church, and reading anything I can get my hands on.

Some of my favorite projects are my recent Kid's Bathroom Makeover


Cherry Chip Sugar Cookies

Mother's Day Brunch Table Scape

"This post was sponsored by Balsam Hill. All opinions and ideas are 100% my own."


Mother's Day is this Sunday.
 I am normally far away from my mother to celebrate with her but if you lucky enough to live near your mom, I have a brunch table scape for you that is super easy to whip together in no time and is pretty. 


 I snagged some pieces from Balsam Hill to create this table scape. 


 Here is a closer look at the table.

 I created a table runner with some place mats in the center of the table then layered some candle sticks, flame less candles, and some flowers before placing the food around the table. 

These tall silver leaf candle holders add lots of height to the table and I love their rustic look.

I then used two ivory flame less pillar candles that flicker just like a real candle on the table near the flowers and food so there are no worries about the flames catching the flowers on fire or getting burned while passing food around the table. 

Between the tall candle sticks, I placed a cake plate with this Phalaenopsis Snowball Arrangement on top of it. These faux floral arrangements are handmade and come in some fabulous containers. I then surrounded the arrangement with white carnations.

 Here is an up close on the container of the arrangement that I used. I love the silver plated container with it's engraved design on both sides. 
  
With the flowers elevated, you can easily place more food around the table without impeding the design. 

I simply used white plates and napkins to round out the table. Small glasses of water for everyone but you could always serve some sort of juice or even make some mimosas. It is brunch after all. ;)



 Table scapes don't have to be super elaborate to be pretty!
 Plus, it is all about who you are sitting down to brunch with that really matters! 


Hope you all have a happy Mother's Day or have a great day celebrating your moms!
