Hosting a Mother's Day Brunch in Your Sunroom



Mother's Day happens at a lovely time of year. As spring flowers bloom and the kids reach the end of their school year, a Mother's Day celebration highlights the turning of the seasons. A sunroom is the perfect space to host a Mother's Day brunch or other celebration because it allows guests to experience spring's joy with comfort.
There are a variety of ways to enhance a sunroom for Mother's Day with elegant and beautiful decor that your whole family will enjoy.



Arrange fresh flowers

While a sunroom already contains the best of both the outdoors and indoors, placing fresh flowers in vases on the tables in modern arrangements provides an additional focal point of beauty. Carnations and roses are traditional Mother's Day flowers, but tulips, sunflowers, and Gerber daisies create updated arrangements. You might also consider ordering special corsages or boutonnieres for the matriarchs of the family.


Set up a buffet

You can provide food for guests right in the sunroom. Set up a long table with a variety of pastries, fruit, coffee, juice, and even mimosas. Scones and muffins are easy to bake and can be easily transported from the kitchen to the sunroom. One-dish items such as quiches or trifles are also easier to move across the house than courses with many components. Colorful plates and glasses that coordinate with the decor of the sunroom may also be a nice touch.

Combine old and new

Because Mother's Day is all about family, incorporating an heirloom into your Mother's Day celebration can be especially meaningful. Mother's Day is the perfect time to use your grandmother's serving spoons, silver platters, or ceramic bowls. Your sunroom's modern design combined with family heirlooms will provide a contrast between old and new that is perfect for this occasion. Moving framed family photos into the sunroom may also be a hit!

Have the kids help

No matter how many women are attending your Mother's Day celebration--mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and the like--homemade crafts made by your kids can provide a warm, welcoming, and home-spun atmosphere for your Mother's Day party in the sunroom.

Take photos

You can take photos of your family right in the sunroom or have everyone step outside to snap a group photo in the yard. After Mother's Day, don't forget to share your photos with the whole family. A framed Mother's Day group photo is a great party favor. 


Plan for next year

Work with a landscaper to figure out how to maximize your yard's beauty throughout the year. What kinds of flowers will you want blooming in your yard on Mother's day next year?

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
