Mothers Day gift guide

Christine Breton1 Comment

With Mother's Day fast approaching, I've been dreaming up the perfect gifts for that special mom in your life. I'm pretty partial to Mothers Day, since I get to celebrate it with my husband and my three lovely boys, as well as with my beautiful mom. Mother's Day has become a day that I cherish so much more since becoming a mother. Not just to celebrate me (though who doesn't love breakfast in bed ;) but all moms and motherhood as a whole.

Hopefully one of these items will be the perfect find to help you celebrate the special mom in your life. 

1. These planters from Anthropologie are just gorgeous and add a touch of rustic glamour to any room. Perfect for the mom who likes to garden and has a green thumb.

2. Fossil makes such exquisite watches with classic details and a little bit of charm. This tan leather wrist band would compliment many outfits and is definitely on trend this season. (P.S. Is the model on their website Tina Fey?!? Love her!)

3. How stunning are the colours on these rings! Would make the perfect sentimental gift by getting the birthstone for each child (this one melts my heart!)

4. This lovely abstract painting of pretty peonies will liven up any room with a touch of pink! 

 5. Click Magazine has some amazing photographs each month, highlighting a different theme. The perfect gift for the amateur (or professional!) photographer mom. 

Have you already gotten your mom something to celebrate her? What are your plans for the day! Be sure to give your mom a big hug or a phone call to tell her you're thinking of her!

Trending - succulents

Christine Breton2 Comments
LaFabere loves succulents! lafabere.com/blog

Succulents have been popping up everywhere lately, from home decor to party favours and even wedding bouquets! Being largely influenced by gorgeous floral arrangements and beautiful flowers, I love seeing them used creatively in bouquets and in home decor.  They add such contrast and a fun pop of greenery. Here are some of my fave picks for the succulent trend.

Love how Poppytalk styled these succulents as a really nice looking vignette for the home.

Do do you have any succulents in your home? We've had Christmas Cactuses forever now, and we're slowly adding to our collection. I would love to hear which are your favourites!  (top photo by LaFabere from the Beyond the House 2016 wedding show)
