A Whimsical Mother's Day Party With Sweet Treats

May 6 2014 - 4:32am

"I am so grateful for my amazing mom," says Mercedes Papalia of Darling and Daisy [1]. "She has given me everything, from the best relationship advice and cooking skills to tons of creative talents and some pretty darn good genetics (if I say so myself!). When Mother's Day [2] rolls around, I like to find new ways to say 'thank you, Mom.'" We think Mercedes did a pretty amazing job with this whimsical bash, full of her mother's favorite treats combined with Spring-celebratory decor. We can't pick a favorite from the thoughtful details. Birdhouse cake displays? Terra-cotta cupcake holders? Everything is beyond cute and would work equally well for a baby shower [3] or little girl's birthday party [4]. Keep clicking to check out this stylish, delicious Mother's Day party!

Mother's Day Whimsy

"The party was inspired by Spring gardens," Mercedes says. "We live in Ottawa, Canada, so any signs of the cold winter leaving makes us very happy, and warm weather is always a reason to celebrate."
