How to Set a Beautiful Mother’s Day Table Setting
Five key things go into preparing to set your Mother’s Day tablescape, similar to the five key things that go into setting a beautiful spring tablescape.
First, you have to choose your colors. Then I suggest deciding on your centerpiece (florals or some sort of eye catching focal point). After that, brainstorm your dinnerware. Pair new items with items from your collection. Then comes time to fill in the table with details. Finally, it’s time set your table (plan it out first).
Below I dive into each of those Mother’s Day table setting tips!
Choosing Colors for Your Mother’s Day Table
Choosing a color scheme for your Mother’s Day tablescape should be the first thing on your list. I decided on an elegant blue and white color scheme to keep things a bit more muted. I love how the colors go together and that they’re both muted shades. I think it really gives this table a home-y but also upscale feel.
I have another tablescape that would be perfect for a bold Mother’s Day tablescape that you might like if you’re into bright pinks and reds. Click here for a beautiful red and pink butterfly tablescape.
Selecting a Beautiful Centerpiece
Next comes choosing your centerpiece. For my table, I thought fresh florals fit the theme the best. I decided to use light pink roses, dark pink roses, white stock, and yellow ranunculus for a beautiful spring-y floral centerpiece. I think it paired so well with the blue and white colors of the rest of the table!
Another route you could take is focusing on an eye catching focal point like ginger jars or statues. Tie them both together for an even more stand-out centerpiece for your Mother’s Day tablescape!
Now when it comes to tableware for your Mother’s Day tablescape, I love the look of a garden theme. For my table, I chose plates with lace texture to add some dynamic to the table and paired them with gold rimmed glassware from my mother’s vintage collection (I added a link to a similar style you can shop for your own table) and traditional style flatware. I love that the lace patterned plates add some bold texture to the table without it being overwhelming!

Choosing Details for Your Mother’s Day Table
LAfter you have your tableware picked out, it’s time to choose your linens. I adore everything from Arte Italica Crown Linens and on this table I have featured their velvet blue placemats, and embroidered napkins . Don’t you think they pair so well with the plates?! I am obsessed.

Setting Your Mother’s Day Tablescape
After you have chosen your tableware, details, and linens, it’s time to set the table. I suggest first setting the place settings, followed by the centerpiece, and then any details you might want to add to the table. This way, you know for sure the place setting fits and you can always work the centerpiece into the tablescape after that. Then the details can be placed throughout the Mother’s Day table setting!
