Spring is finally here in Colorado. This Mother’s Day is going to be different this year. No dining out. No family gatherings. Zoom family meetings. Skype calls. I won’t get to see my mother on Mother’s day. A new normal. I am sure my hubby and kiddos will handle at least one meal that day, but I will still be in charge of the tablescape. I decided to put this simple Spring Tablescape for Mother’s Day together early so we could enjoy it up until Mother’s Day and even beyond.
This year, it will just be the four of us, so I set this table in one of our smaller breakfast areas. All I ask on Mother’s Day is that we are all together all day. Now that my kids are older, I really look forward to this day so I can spend some extra time with them.
Our Spring Tablescape
For this tablescape, I really wanted it to feel very “Springy” (if that is acutually a word…). It all started with my new Lenox Spring Watercolors Accent Plates. I love that each whimsical plate is slightly different and look hand-painted!
The pink and orange tones combined create on overall blush pink/salmon tone which is why I decided to use my blush pink placemats and rose gold chargers again this season. I will show you later in the post how I have used these two pieces and the same Lotus dinner plates in very different ways for other functions.
For the place settings, I kept things very simple. The yellow peony napkin rings added such a delightful touch of spring and pulled out the yellow on the salad plates.
The gold flatware was an obvious choice to work with the yellow and sunflower tones. And, well…I just love them!
For the glassware, I am mixing things up as always. Our Lenox Trianna Frosted All-Purpose Glassware was perfect for the festive occasion. My Blush Verona Tumblers were a delightful addition for added color and texture.
For the centerpiece, I went the faux route (which I VERY rarely do!!), but with the circumstances of today, fresh flowers are harder to come by. Plus, this table will be set for the next week and a half, so…
To create this, I simply added in a few mini flower stems (three, to be exact) to this arrangement I made a little while back for my spring Easter decor. Super easy, but very fresh and “springy” looking! This is what I started with…
More ways I used the same basics…
As I promised at the beginning of this post, I am going to show you two other ways I have used the same blush pink placemats, rose gold chargers, and Lotus dinner plates (by Gourmet Settings) but totally changed up the look. It is so rewarding to create new looks with the same pieces, especially these days that we cannot go out and shop. Boy, am I ready for that!! How about you?!
Sometimes, you can achieve a totally different look with the pieces you already have by only changing up a few small features. This is one reason why I have an unusually large collection of salad/accent plates to help produce either a theme or a color palette. My poor husband…I am always looking for more storage for new acquisitions! 🙂 I really prefer to have classic, simple dinner plates so that the food takes center stage for an entree.
I hope you enjoyed the simple details of this Spring Tablescape for Mother’s Day, and, more importantly, I hope that you have special plans for Mother’s Day. Will your family cook for you? How do you prefer to spend your day? Will you be able to be with your Mom?! Either way, I truly hope you have a blessed day.
