Pretty in Pink for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and what better way to enjoy it as a family than with a nice sit down lunch or dinner! The pear trees and dogwoods are blowing lovely blossoms all around and the temperature is just perfect for spending the evening on the patio, so I set up outside this year. This tablescape is extra special — just by adding some candles, it transitions easily into dusk without losing any of the vibrant fun of the Tulip Trot tablecloth.

I wanted to enjoy the day with my family, so I kept the design simple. By choosing a bold pattern as the base of the table display, I didn’t have to spend a ton of time on the details. Pairing it with the bold pink napkins broke up the pattern a bit, but kept the color scheme in tact and perfectly tied in the florals.

Simple Can Be Beautiful

To be able to relax and enjoy time with my company were my main goals, so I planned a multiple course dinner paired with various wines and a dessert champagne that I knew would make the dinner a longer party. It’s not often you can get everyone home and around the table — and while the silverware and stemware I selected are practical, they also added some texture to the table that makes each place setting feel richer and fuller.

Melody at Refined Social Events once again did the floral arrangements. By sticking to the simplicity of the display, she used my color palette of pinks, whites and greens to put together these easy arrangements. She suggests when using all one color in a single arrangement to mix up the flowers to add depth — such as adding small petaled hydrangea and bulbous peonies. You can also use varying heights and weights to your advantage, like mixing large ranunculus with sprigs of boronia, in a vessel that also highlights your floral varieties.
