Springtime Mother's Day Tablescape


Hi friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen a few pics I've shared of my daughter's wedding last weekend.  It was such a wonderfully special event so naturally, I took some time off from blogging for it.   




I will probably share some of the terrific professional pics that Paisley Photography did later but here's one pic from the day. 

 Now, back to tablescapes... I want to share this springtime Mother's Day tablescape I recently created.

Inspiration began with this beautiful floral tablecloth my SiL recently gave me for my birthday.

There are so many wonderful colours in it and I had fun choosing items I already owned to go with it...like these vibrant floral shaped plates.


Place setting items were also drawn from the tablecloth tones.

For something different, instead of actual placemats, I used blue cloth napkins placing them on an angle.

White napkins were arranged on the plates with daisy napkin rings.

I made some Mother's Day placecards in Word on my computer.

 This hammered-designed flatware was used to coordinate with the gray tones in the tablecloth.

Blue-based champagne glasses were paired with the water goblets.

Votive holders in the appropriate colours were set in front of each place setting.



I used a trio of these faux lavender as a centerpiece.

To give them a bit more presence on the table, I set them on top of some square plates.



I used these purple compote dishes as candleholders...

...and set them in between the pots of lavender.



Now that my Mother's Day tablescape is all planned out for our ladies' luncheon, I just need to decide on a menu.

Are you hosting any Mother's Day meals?

Thanks for visiting!
I'll be linking this post to these wonderful blog parties:

Beautiful!!! I'm not planning any mother's day celebrations here, but I will attend a mother's day brunch next Saturday. I wonder if they will let me come set the table! : )

Very beautiful table as usual. I love the happy and feminine floral table topper and those adorable color plates that brightens up each place settings.
I Mother's Day in Canada before then in the USA?
I have a mom still, so I will make a small table for six, my brother and his wife and some other.
Congrats again on your beautiful daughter's wedding.

Wow what a wonderful backdrop to the wedding picture. Your daughter looked beautiful and her new husband so handsome! That is a very pretty tablecloth- what a sweet sister in-law! Putting the blue napkins on the angle was a great idea- does the job and looks great! Love the pretty colors of the glass salad plates. I don’t have a specific plan for Mother’s Day as of now but your table is inspiring!
