Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to show your Mother just how special she is. A classic way to make Mother's Day special is to start the day by preparing her an amazing brunch that is certain to put a smile on her face.
As part of our popular LookBook Events series we gathered the team from the popular Melbourne cafe Mastic - the whole foods cafe owned by George Calombaris - to prepare some delicious dishes for our guests. Billed as the Ultimate Mother's Day Brunch Masterclass, this was a style and cooking event that not only showcased three tasty recipes but also three very different Mother's Day table settings to surprise your Mum with.
During the event, the head chef of Hellenic Republic Travis McAuley showed how to prepare three menu items from Mastic - Wild Green Pie, Grilled Fish of the Day with Kohlrabi, Radish, Carrots, Taramasalata and a Poached Egg, along with a Tahini & Honey Chia Pudding with Berries and Pistachios. Some great brunch ideas that you could even attempt at home for your very own Mother's Day brunch.
As well as the delicious dishes prepared by Travis, those who attended the event were also treated to an overview from our talented interior designers on three very different Mother's Day table settings that have been inspired by Metricon's very own LookBook.
Inspired by our LookBook themes of Maison Classique and Minerals, this beautiful feminine look is a Mother's Day table setting that is certain to be a favourite of many Mothers. This look is a perfect table setting for Mother's Day with beautiful white china, soft pastels in pinks and mint colours as well as beautiful cutlery ideal for special occasions. This particular table setting does not have a single focal point but is instead all about beautiful soft touches along the whole table – beautiful flowers and tea light candles adorn the table.
Another beautiful Mother's Day table setting is Natural Luxe. This table setting is inspired by several of our LookBook themes, including Urban Organic and Nordic Elk. These rustic styles take their cues from nature and create a cosy and warm environment. To create this type of Mother's Day table setting for yourself you can simply look towards nature - warm timbers, handmade potteries and terracotta pots can all find a place at this table. These natural elements can be teamed with herbs from the kitchen and native flowers from your garden to truly bring this table setting to life.
Finally, A-List Glam is a Mother's Day table setting that has a truly luxurious and glamorous look and feel. Inspired by our Black Label LookBook theme, this sophisticated style is based on black, white and charcoal tones which can be complemented by warm metallics such as gold or copper along with natural marble elements that emphasise elegant styling. The focal point of this table setting is the beautiful floral arrangement that gives an inviting warmth and elegance to the entire style. You can then distribute beautiful touches of gold along the entire table to add the glitz and glamour.
Whichever one you choose, these three distinct looks are going to delight your Mum this Mother’s Day. If you want to recreate these looks for yourself then visit LookBook for further inspiration and ideas about our themes. To replicate the table settings we recommend you head to Freedom, who supplied many of the items for our Mothers Day table settings.
