For my Tablescape Thursday post, I am posting my Mother's Day tables. As usual, I got a little carried away. Ya'll know how I love a theme. I started getting out things with flowers on them, and I just couldn't stop! If you don't know where to go to find the links for beautiful tablescapes, I don't know what rock you've been hiding under, but it's time to get out from under it and go to Susan's beautiful blog, Between Naps on the Porch.

A pink plaid tablecloth topped with a floral square; floral place card holders; floral napkin rings, and of course real flowers too! Little baskets (which could hold flowers!) are my salt cellars.
My mother's floral china (Royal Doulton Chelsea Rose).
My flatware features flowers (Towle Old Master), and even the wine glasses have flowers on them!

I think this is a grandmother sewing a child's pants while they are on him, but I pretended it was a mother (just a very old one!)

Ya'll know that I always like for my grandchildren's table to sort of mimic the adult table, but with unbreakables.
Since I had the salt cellar baskets on the adult table, I put little baskets (from Easter decor) on the children's table and put their name cards in them, so they would have place cards too. I used plastic flower plates, and paper plates for chargers.

A plastic wine glass (with a flower on the stem) holds the flower on their table.

Vintage floral and Mother's Day cards along with photos of mothers in the family were clipped to a ribbon on the fireplace mantle.

See these cute clothes pins I used? I ordered those from Robin at Bittersweet Punkin. Don't ya love um? I do!


If you saw my post Monday, you know I am jumpin' up and down and screaming, because Kris Allen is one of the final two competing on American Idol!!! The last chance to cast a vote will be next Tuesday! GO KRIS!! Danny did such a fabulous job, and I cried when he sang his swan song tonight. It was beautiful. All of you Danny fans might consider voting for Kris Tuesday night! I am shamelessly soliciting votes for our Arkansas contestant (but he does deserve the votes!). On my post about Kris, Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen commented that she doesn't watch the show, but she trusts me when I say he is worth her vote (Thanks Kathleen)! You trust me too, right? Vote for Kris!

Don't forget to go to Between Naps on the Porch, so you won't miss all of the beautiful tables in Blogville today. Thanks so much for visiting me. laurie
