Mother’s Day – Celebrate in Style!

Purple Table Setting

This Mother’s Day, forgo the traditional sweet brunch/lunch options and elevate your affair with lavish tablescapes that any special guest would enjoy. These ideas are simple and easy to implement. The beautiful tablescape pictured above adds color in an affordable way. Complement beautiful greens with rich purple vases and glassware. Your table will be striking, elegant and unique.

Décor Tip #1: Can’t find several vases of the same color? Keep the flower color scheme consistent and use multi-colored vases to provide a more dynamic and sweet touch.

Lunch Table Setting

If you want a more modern look, choose one theme color; dress the table with a fresh neutral color and introduce your theme color with a simple table runner, plates, perhaps chairs. As an ambitious accent, find colorful lanterns similar to the tablescape pictured above. The neutral tablecloth will offset the theme color and not be too overwhelming for your guests’ eye. Flowers and/or candles in the middle of the table should be monochromatic or have subtle color. Keep your stemware and silverware simple so that they seem transparent on the table.

Spring Table Setting

Lovely Clusters’ blog depicts an elegant and striking tablescape for a Mother’s Day brunch. For a traditional but dynamic table, choose a patterned runner with a kick such as chevron stripes, polka dots or thick stripes. Offset the pattern on the runner with a complementary color palette with napkins and menu cards. Add a touch of elegance with stemware and silverware. Rimmed stemware or hand blown glasses will add an extra bit of glamour to an already exquisite table.

Mother's Day Table Setting

If you prefer a more low key table with stylish and affordable accents, consider a simple tablecloth with colorful plates, stunning silverware and complimentary napkins like the one pictured above from Heart Hand Made. Your table can further be accented with tiered cake stands and old fashioned tea cups.

Décor Tip #2: If you can’t find ceramic colorful plates, invest in heavy weight plastic tableware. There are beautiful colors and unique shapes available.

Spring Flowers

When hosting a more intimate affair, let the details tell the story. This beautiful table scape from Sugar and Charm is full of colorful bouquets as centerpieces and as adorable place settings. Accent flowers on the table were placed in tea cups that can easily be reused for dessert. Make the day more memorable with old pictures of guests with their mothers at their place setting.
