Mother’s Day Brunching for a Cause

April 15th, 2014

A few months ago, I met Christy Turlington and got to hear her own birth story, as well as the story behind the birth of the nonprofit she founded, Every Mother Counts. I was deeply affected by what EMC is doing to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for moms and babies around the world, and knew immediately that I had to find a way to get involved. I talked with my friends at Minted, who are longtime partners of the organization, and together we decided to host a brunch in honor of Mother’s Day at my house, and invite some of our favorite women in media and the arts. We would use it as an opportunity to share the mission of Every Mother Counts with our guests, invite them to support the organization just by buying their mom a great Mother’s Day gift… and of course, post about it to share all the inspiration and EMC’s vision with all of you! Click through for all the lovely details of the day shot by Wynn Myers, as well as lots more info about the amazing things that Every Mother Counts is doing and how you can get involved this Mother’s Day!

  1. Beautiful Camille! I loved hearing Christy speak about EMC at this past ALT… So inspiring!

    • Wasn’t it?? I was so impacted by Christy’s story… and it is amazing that even a small donation can make a huge difference in these villages and in the lives of mothers around the world. Really excited about what EMC is doing!

    What a perfectly beautiful set up! I’m so curious to know what raspberry-rose jam is like. Yum!

    • Well, I didn’t actually make it (Word of Mouth, our catering team was behind that genius!) I can say that it was absolutely delicious slathered on a croissant! 🙂 I’d love to try it at home, though. I bet you could put a few drops of rosewater into the raspberry purée to infuse it.

    What a great cause! It inspired me to have a fundraising brunch as well. I love Camille’s dress, can you share details?

    AH! This looks so beautiful Camille! I’m so sad I couldn’t make it – but what a worthy cause, and a gorgeous celebration.

    So proud of you, the work that you do, and your BOOK!!!!!!

    Hi Camille, Love love your website! What plugin are you using for your slideshows?


    • Thanks Stephanie! It is actually a custom-built slideshow… we couldn’t find a plugin that was quite right for our needs. I know there are some really good ones out there though. Hope you find a great one that works!

  13. […] When it comes to entertaining, nothing beats setting up an area where guests can mix their own drinks. That way you’re not playing bartender all morning! I’m a big fan of the build your own mimosa bar, complete with a variety of juices, purees and garnishes. [from Camille Styles] […]
