Hello you all! Spring is rolling along which means some holidays are around the corner any day now! Easter is coming up as is Mother’s Day. Which is why I am joining Bre from Rooms for Rent to share a Mother’s Day Tablescape. I wanted to keep this festive, but simple, so I chose to focus on sweet ranunculus and bright yellow lemons. A table of soft greens, white florals and vivid fruit…
When I think about Mother’s Day, I often envision brunch after church. As that seems to be the going tradition in our family.
So while I love a table of dramatic flowers, I wanted this one to be low maintenance.
More a spring basket of sorts…
While I was putting this centerpiece together, I kept thinking about April showers bringing May flowers and Maypoles with a festival of florals.
And while those ideas were not the focus of my table, they kinda inspired this blooming basket. One day last week I was making returns to some stores and my hubby was helping me along the way.
He was making sure we were checking things off the list and as we went, this little straw basket was in the pile of returns. He grabbed it out of the car and headed to the store, I quickly stopped him. I assured him I needed to keep this $3 basket as you can always use a basket!
He looked at me skeptically, but gave in ;)… Funnily enough, that very next day I went to grab said basket and it became the focal point for today’s table!
It just goes to show that baskets usually do always come in handy, so try to keep one around for when needed! I use them for everything.
Our local grocery store had fresh ranunculus and this fun variety of eucalyptus that I had to scoop up. I had never seen it before, but now I hope I can find it again!
White pressed napkins float atop white everyday dishes.
And sparkling glassware surround each setting. These gold water glasses were the perfect accompaniment to the lemons.
Although I didn’t actually prepare the meal that would go along with this brunch setting… I can picture warm buckwheat pancakes with a blueberry glaze, presseco and some sizzling bacon on the side.
We are still enjoying our round table and all the fun dining we are having there!
I have found that having a low laying centerpiece makes it nice and easy to converse around the table still as well.
To make this centerpiece, I just took a round glass bowl, filled it with water and then started inserting the florals.
I say it often, but I really do think entertaining should be easy and somewhat carefree…
I trust that that is the feeling my friends/family have as they gather here with us. Hope today maybe gave you some ideas to use! And please don’t forget to visit my friends down below who are sharing their beautiful tables as well!
