Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms in the world and more specifically to my amazing Mom. I wish I could be with her today. But since I cannot, I will share how I prepped for Mother’s Day from 2,376 miles away.

One of the bloggers I follow hosted an event at Anthropologie this past weekend for Mother’s Day. Madeline and I headed over to Pasadena at 10am on Sunday morning to make a craft at one of my favorite stores.

The event promoted the new flower line from Anthropologie. The store was beautifully decorated with this flower arch, and there was a breakfast spread set up for our event.

We had delicious munchies – strawberries, scones, honey spread and fizzy drink with these cute striped straws.

This event was hosted by one of my favorite bloggers; her name is Leah and she writes the blog freutcake.com. I have been following her blog for a little while now, and meeting her in person was surreal and very very cool. She taught us how to make these wonderful lavendar body scrubs for our moms.

If you are curious for the recipe to Leah’s scrub, you can find it on her blog here. Also, there is great photo on her blog of Madeline and I laughing at the event. I was honored to be featured in her post!

Our tables were decked out with really cute Anthropologie kitchen gadgets. I can’t wait to go apartment shopping and get some of these adorable new items for my place like this vase, these measuring spoons, and this mixing bowl. I also love the Weck Jars we put the scrub in.

I had a great time putting together the gift box for my mom. I wrapped up the body scrub along with a scarf, bracelet, and book, Mom: A Celebration of Mothers.  I talked to my mom on the phone this morning while she opened her presents. Even though I was across the country today, I still felt like I was right there with her. Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I love you.
