Mother’s Day Brunch and Introducing MORAMIRON


Happy Friday!  Today is an exciting day for me for two reasons- the first one being this Mother’s Day inspiration table that Farra from Hostess Haven and I put together to inspire any brunches you may be planning (celebrating moms in any way you can is just the best!).  I hope you love it as much as I do- we worked long and hard on this one and are so proud of how it turned out!  I’ve listed sources for every bit of it that I can in case you’ve got your eye on the tabletop goodies.  And on Monday I’ll share recipes and even more photos!  But for now here’s a teaser of the menu:  Coconut Ginger Beet Soup, Salted Herb Branzino with Mirin Chili Oil, Pan Seared Artichokes, Baby Bib Lettuce Salad with Cherries, Apricots, Arugula flowers and Tarragon Vinaigrette.  And for dessert: Angel Food Layer Cake with Whipped Coconut Cream, Pistachios and Cacao Nibs (ever so slightly modified from this recipe).  DO YOU NOT WANT TO EAT ALL OF THAT?!  We did.  We sat down with our husbands and intern and devoured it.  Of course it was cold from sitting out while we took a bazillion photos but it was still so, SO yummy!

Now, for the second reason I’m on cloud fifteen about today’s post.  Farra and I have decided to team up and start working as a food photographer/styling duo- PROFESSIONALLY!  We don’t have a website, but it’s in the works.  And if you search the hashtags “MORAMIRON” or “MORAMIRONPROPSHOP” on Instagram you’ll find some of what we’ve been collaborating on.  I’ve been photographing food for a long time, Farra was born to style- and when the two of us come together to work it just feels like magic.  I’m tempted to use words like “synergy” and “creative soul-mates” but I’m very aware of how lame that sounds.  Still, I’m at a loss for words at what happens when we work together that doesn’t sound cheesy.  I just know that we’re meant to do this, and that it’s so very, very exciting!  So, keep an eye out for MORAMIRON and wish us luck in our new venture!   xx- Sarah  {so much more after the jump}

    If you ever need another stylish, local San Diego gal to come over and eat your perfectly styled food after a shoot, I’d be more than happy to volunteer my time. That cake it outrageous. And that salad! xx
