Mother's Day Lunch Tablescape

This detailed step by step  Mother’s Day lunch tutorial is divided into four  parts:

1. Centerpiece and Decor

2 .Tableware

3. Lemon cups

4. Printables


Materials used:

  • A rool of good quality roll of  gift wrapping paper in coordinating color
  • A 14” tall yellow candlestick – a tall vase will also work fine
  • 4 bunches of bright pink good quality wired silk flowers, each bunch should have at least 5 flower heads
  • 4 bunches of Yellow good quality wired  silk flowers, each bunch should have at least 5 flower heads
  • Clear tape

To make runner cut paper the length of your table plus add  a 10-14 inch overhang on each side. Turn paper over with print side facing down on table. Measure 1/4 of the width of paper and fold it in towards the center of paper.

Using your finger press down on the crease to flatten and smooth edges.

Next take opposite side of paper and fold it into center as shown bellow. Then press down on the crease of other half as well. turn your runner over and center it on your table.

Using your wire cutters, trim stems on 3 pink bunches and 3 yellow bunches so they are all even, approximately 10-12 inches in length.

Floral Centerpiece

Start by attaching 1 of the 4 pink floral bunches by tapping stem on top flat base of candlestick as shown.

Holding floral stem securely on base with one hand, using your other hand bend the stems gently down to create a cascading look. adjust flowers to give you arrangement a natural loose feel.

Using this same method add two more pink bunches spreading them evenly around base.

How To Make A Floral Centerpiece

Using the same method used for the pink flowers, incorporate the yellow bunches in the same manner adding one bunch in between each pink bunch.

Trim the last two bunches to approximately 8 inches and tuck them in on top of arrangement.

Coordinating printables always complete the party!

Mother's Day Printables


Materials used:

  • White Tablecloth
  • 18″ Pink Kate Spade napkins
  • Pink  chargers
  • White dinner plates
  • Yellow rimmed Kate Spade salad plate
  • Water goblets
  • Flatware

For this table I choose a crisp white linen  over a rectangle table.

With long tables, runners are a great option as you can create a variety of  looks inexpensively just by adding a runner!

Pink chargers were used as a base with a white dinner plate topped off with our gorgeous Kate Spade rimmed plates!

We used coordinating Kate Spade napkins in pink and white stripes and folded them in half, then folded them over crosswise three times for a flat look as shown below.

 Kate Spade Napkins

To tie in our  theme we added our napkin rings from our  printable “M is for Mom” collection on our Etsy shop. These pieced were cut out and wrapped around our napkin and taped in back.

These can be adjusted to your napkin size. Napkins are placed to the right of the plate leaving a little space in between for your flatware.

Place cards were folded and placed above each place setting as shown.

Knives were placed to the right of each placesetting and forks on the left. Water goblets were set to the right of the place card.

Materials used:

  • Large lemons,  1/2 lemon needed for each piece
  • Lemon sorbet, 1/4 cup needed  for each lemon half
  • Assorted berries , 1 teaspoon per serving. I used Blueberries, Blackberries and  Raspberries with a little sugar.
  • Ice scream scoop

Cut and remove lemon pulp with a spoon. Scoop in approximately 1/4 cup of Sorbet into each lemon half, Add 1 teaspoon of berries over sorbet.

Lemon Cups

Place one lemon half on the center of each plate. It’s a fun starter and a great way to cleanse the palate before you start your meal!

Or make these ahead of time freeze them them remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving, These are great as an intermezzo or a light dessert.

Refreshing lemon cups

This beautiful color palate can be used for an early brunch, Mother’s Day lunch……
