~mothers day brunch~{with balsam hill}

If you are coming over from The Yellow Cape Cod, welcome!
Do you have any Mother's Day traditions? 
Our Mother's Day usually involves brunch and a day of relaxing.

Being a mom myself, this day holds a lot of meaning to me.
It's not only a day to celebrate moms, but a day to rejoice in our wonderful children.
I think being a mom is one of life's biggest accomplishments.
It takes hard work, dedication, patience, and a lot of love.

Watching my kids go from cheerio eating toddlers, to driving teens, football and soccer players, leaders in their community, and downright happy well rounded kids, has been a joy to watch.
If you have little ones and people tell you, "they grow up so fast"
It's so true! Hold on tight to those little ones, for soon they will be going off to college.

Like I mentioned, enjoying a relaxing day at home usually involves a good meal.
One of my favorite recipes to serve for brunch on Mother's Day is this baked french toast.
You can make it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning.

Baked French Toast:

1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut diagonally in 1 inch slices
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the slices of bread in the bottom. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread slices, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 350 
degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup; heat until bubbling. Pour over bread and egg mixture.
Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes.

And of course, a pretty table to eat at is a must.
This year I partnered with Balsam Hill.
Balsam Hill has some gorgeous artificial flower arrangements that are so lifelike, it's hard to believe they aren't real!

This orchid is a perfect example. 
I placed it in a large blue and white planter to set off the color scheme.
Then I simply set the table with a mix match of blue and white dishes for a informal look.

I am so excited to have an orchid that looks so real that I can't kill!
Orchids can be so finicky.

Melaine, I love the blue and white color scheme. What a great look and not too formal. You are right about how real the floral arrangement looks. It's just incredible how difficult it can be to keep orchids and this is the perfect solution. Thanks for sharing your arrangement with us.

Mother day gives us message of loving our mothers and respect them always because she suffered from heavy pain for us. Article and best essay service providers should write about the importance of loving to our mothers because mostly youngsters are disrespecting them.
