Dining Decor: Mother May I

We have a very special day approaching. One in which we get to celebrate a very special person in our lives, one who for most of us have set our tables for years. Of course I am talking about our Mom’s and Mother’s Day, which is the inspiration behind this months Dining Decor.

If you are looking for a perfect way to celebrate with your mom (or Grandma, or special woman in your life), plan a meal, and set the table for them for once. So many great conversations and lasting memories start around the dining table, and that all begins with your dining decor.

Since the inspiration for this month’s dining décor comes from celebrating MOM, I thought, why not use some of my own Mom’s things. This is a good lesson in decorating of any sort…borrow from friends and family. This could be as simple as borrowing ideas and tips, or borrowing physical belongings. Now, in most cases you might not borrow things like furniture too often, you would probably have been gifted them or have them passed down to you. But, dining décor is a whole other story. Things like placemats, table cloths, dishes, etc. are quite simple to borrow!

Parents usually have a wide array of items they have accumulated over the years, which makes them a great source to borrow from. For this particular gathering I knew I needed this plaid tablecloth that belongs to my mom. It’s so poppy and cheery, how could I not borrow it? Coupled with a yellow placemat, also my moms, as well as my own white dishes, it was the perfect start to a Mother’s Day tablespace.

To add a bit more of a personal touch to this table I decided to make place cards with pretty spring details. I simply cut two different colors of cardstock with some fun scissors to make the edges cute, then added little prints that I cut out of an old calendar. (If you like crafting, it always pays off to keep old calendar’s. They usually have such fun prints and can be great additions to homemade cards and things. )

I always strive with this series to show you how to make a table your own, whether it’s on a budget or something you splurge on, you have so many options. Think outside the box, be as creative as possible, and when in need, simply ask “Mother, may I borrow____.” In the end, remember a tablescape is created as a backdrop for an event to bring together people we love.
