This Mother’s Day, make brunch extra special and include a bouquet bar

How about a little “Make a Bouquet with Mom” moment this Mother’s Day? Our spacious floor plans, modern kitchens and top-of-the-line appliances make hosting your Mother’s Day celebration easy and enjoyable! 

We partnered with Drees homeowner Tara Berger from One Stylish Party to illustrate how to best utilize your Drees kitchen and dining area when hosting a make-your-own bouquet party for the special women in your life. Tara beautifully styled the kitchen and dining area of our Bedford model home, located in the community of Wexford in Brunswick Hills, Ohio. 

The Bedford features a gourmet kitchen, complete with a large, waterfall island that is perfect for entertaining. The dining room, located right off the kitchen, offers plenty of space for your guests to mingle, grab a bite to eat and create bouquets. (Consider putting the bouquet bar on your island if you want it to serve as more of a centerpiece.)

When selecting flowers for your bouquet bar, you’ll want to pick a “wow” flower – think roses, peonies, etc., filler like baby’s breath and greenery like eucalyptus or olive branch to provide texture. Create a sign to call out the options available in the bouquet bar and be sure to have parchment paper and ribbon handy for the final products!

The Bedford’s kitchen is an entertainer’s dream! Whip up chicken salad sandwiches and fruit tarts in a flash. Tara’s pro tip: When hosting a crowd, select food that you can make ahead of time. That way, all you have to do is set food out when guests arrive. 

You can also use your kitchen island as a buffet line. This setup is a win-win for both hosts and guests; guests are able to serve themselves, so hosts are able to enjoy the party. 

Tara said utilizing her kitchen island provides a stress-free dining experience that allows guests to graze after the meal is finished while they are hanging out in the kitchen. 

Tara lives in an Ash Lawn with her family in northeast Ohio. You can follow along for future home tours and entertaining tips on her site One Stylish Party and via social media (@onestylishparty). You can also check out Drees spaces she has styled below:
