My Mother's Day weekend

We had a Mother's Day weekend as we hosted dinner at our place on Saturday night for both our mums and families as it was the one time we could all be together.


Simon cooked a delicious chicken and chorizo paella, followed by 2 fabulous cakes and lots of champagne. I felt very pampered and I hope our mums did too. 
My contribution to the night was setting the table ;)
I couldn't go past those pink tulips without picking up a few bunches.





We love the Lemon Drizzle cake from Flour and Stone. 
It's the perfect blend of sweet with a tart tang! The chocolate cake was divine as well.
It was a lovely night.

On Sunday morning I woke up to handmade cards and gifts from the Mother's Day stall at school.
Bliss! I always love seeing what the boys choose.
We all sat in bed sipping sparkling apple juice from champagne flutes and the boys all made little speeches. It was so sweet. 


Sunday was a relaxed day at home. We were going to go out but it was a little chilly and we were all happy to stay put. I pottered around finding spots for my gifts, including this new Slim Aarons print.


In the afternoon my box of chocolates were opened and shared around. 
You can't go past a classic Milk Tray!


I felt very lucky and loved.

How was your Mother's Day? Did you get spoilt?
What did you get up to?

  4. Oh that all looks just gorgeous Simone. Lucky Mama & so well deserved too. Love your photos, could look at your snaps all day, so pretty. The pink tulips are a beautiful pop of colour too. My Mother's Day was nice, relatively low key, with both the boys playing their footy games, then some time at home & a park play in the afternoon :) xo
