Entertaining for those you love: a celebratory lunch and Mother’s Day brunch

Entertaining is a great way to show love, especially on Mother’s Day. The best entertaining is centred around a fabulous table and chairs, facing your loved ones in a setting that shows care and attention. Here Brosa shows how to set the table for two different types of celebrations: a rustic Mother’s Day brunch, and a cheerful celebratory lunch. Enjoy!

A celebratory lunch

When the time calls for cake, only the best and brightest will do! Especially when it comes to celebrating our mums.

Our modern Trapez Dining Table is the perfect base to hero colour and fun. Start by setting the scene with a bright patterned table runner over the natural wood. This feast is all about the sweet treats — enter our hero celebration cakes! Layer flowers throughout the spread — we love these colourful bud vases of different sizes and shapes, filled with eclectic flowers in similar tones. Finish off the celebration tablescape with bright coloured and patterned plates, linen and glassware, and enjoy the party!

A Mother’s Day brunch

A rustic, delicious brunch is the way to mums heart. Show her you care with a chic gathering for your whole tribe. Here’s a few tips on bringing the style!

Skip the regular old tablecloth & let the natural wood of the Shamal Table shine through. Keep decorations simple — try loose flowers in a rustic vase for a relaxed (gorgeous) centrepiece.

Set the foundation with a place for each guest, and let the food do the talking! Offer scrumptious self-serve options of granola, pastries, berries & bread to make it stress-free, easy, and delicious. (Some extra inspo: our Grace Dining Chairs, London Dining Chairs, and Koko Dining Chairs all look incredible with the Shamal Dining Table!)

We’ve opted for tonal & textural servingware, keeping the look interesting & harmonious, with layered-look settings (Hot tip: place knotted linen napkins on plates & bowls). And what kind of brunch wouldn’t have tea & coffee? This essential addition is the cherry on the cake, where everyone can relax with a hot cuppa and give mum their full attention.

All set — enjoy your Mother’s Day brunch!
