My dining room table doesn’t get used very often. At this stage in my husband’s & my life, we are a sit-at-the-coffee-table-with-dinner-&-chat-about-our-day kind of couple. But when there is a reason to celebrate & entertain, my dining room gets its moment in the spotlight! On Sunday I hosted a Mother’s Day Tea Party for my mom, grandmother & aunt (& daughters) – now all living in close proximity to me & to each other for the first time since I was born. So I tried to make it extra special with pretty desserts, favors & place cards :)
The desserts were store-bought & the cake pops were handmade & dipped in green melting chocolate to match the flower stems. My place-mats from Bed Bath & Beyond were the inspiration that led to the color palette of navy blue & yellow with pops of green. The flowers were from Trader Joe’s with some arranged in up-cycled Ginger Ale bottles – I just loved the label design & have been saving them for months for the perfect occasion!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day this year!
