Today I’m sharing the inspiration board for a friendship brunch I recently had the honor of helping plan.
My client Betty came to me asking for help planning a brunch she was having to celebrate her friend Susan. Susan was a dear friend of Betty’s who passed away unexpectedly this past summer. Her birthday was in November so Betty wanted to bring together a group of Susan’s closest friends to celebrate her memory.
The inspiration for the brunch came from a picture of a beautiful yellow rose taken from Susan’s casket at her funeral. Betty’s daughter-in-law took a picture of the rose she’d been given and kept in her refrigerator for over a month after the funeral.
Betty decorated for Christmas the week before the brunch so we thought a Christmas feel for the event was more appropriate. Yellow is not a typical Christmas color but since it was such an important part of the event, it had to be included. So the requirements were:
1) Use the color yellow and incorporate yellow roses
2) Make the decor fit in with the Christmas decor already in the house
3) Add a bit of sparkle
Here is the inspiration board I created for the event:
Join me later this week when I share pictures of the finished event.
P.S. How fun is the idea of a friendship brunch! What a special event to share with your friends. I might just have to use this idea in the near future to get a group of my favorite ladies together.
