Happy Saturday Friends!
So it’s Mother’s day weekend and I’m generally pretty chill about doing things on Mother’s day. All I usually want is for them to not ask me to do anything and I may request certain foods. I’m not usually big on getting gifts because they show me love all year.
Normally my mom comes over and eats with us and contrary to popular belief I don’t decorate. I know shocking right?!? However, I wanted to do something a little different this year. Not too much, but just something to let my mom know how much I really appreciate her.
My heart has literally hurt for some of the ladies I follow online that have lost their mothers. It really hit me and opened my eyes and I want to celebrate her while I still can.
I decided to do a little small table setting that is good for Mother’s day and you can still leave up for Spring. Here’s a breakdown of the details.
I had some flowers leftover from Jasmine’s prom send off (post coming soon) and I wanted to but let them go to waste. So I made a simple arrangement. You all know I love my hurricane vases. They are timeless and classic. I used that to to hold my flowers. For some added height, I just used a cake plate. I also added a couple taper candles and some votive holders and voila!! Easy peasy!
Last year I found some boxwood placemats and peony napkin rings at Pier 1 Imports. I loved them the minute I saw them!
If you don’t have a good set of white dishes, you really should. My white dinnerware from West Elm is my absolute fave! I love how the bowls are so versatile. You can use them for your entree, soup or cereal! The flatware and glasses are just our everyday stuff we use. It looks fancy though lol!!
So there you have it! A nice and simple table setting for Mother’s day and/or Spring. You’d know, minus the fresh flowers after a few days.
I hope that however you celebrate, you enjoy this weekend. A special Happy Mother’s day to all the mothers out there.
I know this weekend can be hard for some. I am totally sensitive to that. If you are a mother and your mother or child is no longer living know that I am praying for you.
Enjoy your weekend!
