Sure, jewelry’s nice, and chocolates are tasty, but what your mom really wants for Mother’s Day is time with you. And bonus, to be reminded of how much you care. So we whipped up a Mother’s Day tablesetting that says “I love you” and “you deserve the best”.
The recipe is quite simple: a mixture of formal and informal dishes, with conversation pieces sprinkled in (wedding set? grandmother’s cherished china? Bring it out!).
Simple, elegant basics always have a seat at the table – this linen table runner is the perfect example – so make sure you’re balancing things with classic pieces and rich textures.
Finally, when it comes to desserts and flowers? Go big. This is your mom we’re talking about. She deserves the best.
Pink plates, gold accents, sweets, and flowers: pretty much every mother deserves this set-up on May 14th.
Not that you technically *need* a holiday to set a table this stunning for your mom…
Or, for anyone, really. Who wouldn’t feel spoiled with this backdrop for a meal every once in a while?
