I absolutely love hosting people for dinner parties. Setting the table is something I always consider and enjoy immensely. I have set some elaborate tables for Thanksgiving, but my everyday parties are a little more simple. There is something about setting a table well that makes it feel more like a celebration and I think your guests will appreciate your effort. Simple dinner parties may have fresh flowers and candles with fabric napkins (we use fabric napkins all the time) and a more elaborate meal might have some additional flare. I thought it would be fun to share some inspiration for Mother’s Day Table decorations. I wish I were closer to my mom or mom in law and I’d have them for a lovely meal. Remember, you can set your table the night before or morning of so it’s one less thing to think about while preparing the food.
Just look at that flower runner! Bunches of flowers in low vases would create the same effect.
Gold Flare is sometimes appropriate
Since persimmons are not in season, you could use oranges with foliage attached, or kumquats with bright sprigs of sea berry in a wood bowl.
Peonies are in season and are modestly priced. They are so large that one bunch will make multiple arrangements.
Ranunculus (also in season) are great in little clusters. Add some texture with galvanized buckets, wire baskets and burlap.
Cocktails to match? Love these glasses.
You might be surprised what you can find at your local thrift store or flea market. These are dangerous places for me since I am attracted to “old stuff” for no reason at all. I hope you all are able to share some time with your Moms or adopted moms and grandmas this Mother’s Day!
