FLOWERS FOR THE TABLE

MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 1

On Mother’s Day, my table was blooming. This could also be a table for a Spring or Summer celebration.  Since this tablecloth is a little over powering, I tried to neutralize it with white place mats and napkins.


MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 2

Without the white place mats, the place setting sort of got lost when I put it on top of this vibrant cloth.


MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 3

Dinner plates are Churchill, Staffordshire, England.  The charger is Lace, Kennex.
MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 5
 Lenox Moonspun goblets feature an etched floral border.


MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 6

Towle Old Master flatware has a flower on it too.

MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 7
 Metal flower napkin rings, combine with silk daisy napkin rings.
MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 9

A small bouquet at each place setting is made from cuttings from shrubs in our garden.
MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 8

Peonies from our garden march down the center of the table.  I put them in plastic stems with floral bases, resting on plastic flower-shaped plates.

MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 10

MOTHER'S DAY TABLE 11

I really appreciate your visit to BDwL.
 
This post is partying with Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters  and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

Hi Laurie- love the tablecloth and those pink floral plates in the center! The peonies are beautiful- I would love to smell them- I adore the smell of peonies! Mine are up but have a ways to go before they'll bloom. I hope you had a great Mother's Day!
