Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th this year which will be here before we know it. There always seems to be so much spring cleaning and yard work to be done this month that the time just flies by.
As such, I'm getting a head-start on planning my Mother's Day celebration and thought I'd share with you what I've been thinking of.
Ideally, I'd like to invite my mom and a few others for a buffet luncheon and weather permitting, I'd like to set it up outside.
I'll probably use a few tables in our outdoor cabana area but for now, I've done a mock-up with the buffet décor all set on my dining room table.
There is a lot going on here so I'll break it down for you.
My centerpiece was created by placing spring décor items in this decorative box.
Some wine and a couple glasses make the décor look celebratory.
Because moms should definitely be celebrated!
These pink floral plates from HomeSense a few years back add a feminine touch.
White lanterns and other colour-coordinated décor were placed around the centerpiece.
This white birdie sits atop pink floral bowls which match the plates in the box.
I placed faux candles inside the lanterns.
The whole buffet décor scene.
I made three of these "Happy Mother's Day" signs on my computer using clipart. This one was wrapped inside a small cloche.
On one side of the centerpiece, I created this display using another of the signs.
Pink cloth napkins with garden-utensil napkin rings stand upright in a wire basket in front of green-handled flatware.
These were a gift from my sister-in-law a few years back.
Can you read the words on this teddy bear's dress? My daughter gave her to me for Mother's Day many years ago.
On the other side of the table, I placed a drink dispenser which for now, only holds faux lemons but will have real lemonade for the actual occasion. I'll probably have this set up on a separate drink table.
Faux lemons and ice decorate these butterfly-etched glasses.
A green tablecloth was placed over a longer white one and tied at the corners.
Faux pink tulips add some embellishment on the ends.
The sun is streaming in today but I wonder what's in store weather-wise for Mother's Day.
I guess if the buffet is not do-able outside, I've already got things planned for indoors. In either scenario, I know we'll have a ...
Hope you do too!
In case you haven't noticed, I've finally got "pin it" buttons on every picture if you've found some inspiration here you'd like to save to Pinterest.
Thanks for visiting!
