Easy DIY Mothers Day Tablescape
This bright and modern mother’s day tablescape features beautiful pink Kate Spade napkins and yellow rimmed salad plates.
A coordinating printable set was created to compliment the fresh style of the Kate Spade accessories. A perfect look for your mother’s day celebration!
This detailed step by step mother’s day tablescape tutorial is divided into four parts:
- Centerpiece and Decor
- Lemon Cups
Part 1: Centerpiece And Table Decor
Materials used for the tablescape:
- 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
- Wire cutters
How To Make The Table Runner
To make the table runner cut the paper the length of your table. Ensure you add a 10-14 inch overhang on each side.
Turn the paper over with the print side facing down on table.
Measure 1/4 of the width of paper and fold it in towards the center of the paper.
Using your finger press down on the crease to flatten and smooth edges.
Next take the opposite side of the paper and fold it into center as shown below. Then press down on the crease of the other half as well.
Turn your runner over and center it on your table.
How To Make The Table Centerpiece
Using your wire cutters, trim stems on 3 pink bunches and 3 yellow bunches so they are all even.
They should be approximately 10-12 inches in length.
Start by attaching 1 of the 4 pink floral bunches by tapping stem on top flat base of candlestick as shown.
Holding the floral stem securely on base with one hand, use your other hand and bend the stems gently down to create a cascading look.
Adjust the flowers to give your arrangement a natural loose feel.
Using this same method add two more pink bunches and spread them evenly around base.
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.
Gently spread the flowers and bend heads so they overlap naturally. Check that there are no open empty spaces.
Step 2: Printables
Coordinating printables always complete the party!
The printables can be obtained from the “M is for Mom” collection in Alice’s Etsy store.
Part 3: Tableware
Tableware Materials used:
- White Tablecloth
- 18″ Pink Kate Spade napkins
- Pink chargers
- White dinner plates
- Yellow rimmed Kate Spade salad plate
- Water goblets
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.
To tie in our theme we added our napkin rings from our printable M is Mom collection. These pieces were cut out and wrapped around our napkin and taped at the 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.
Part 4: Lemon Cups
Materials used to make the lemon cups:
- 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 then add 1 teaspoon of berries over the sorbet.
Place one lemon half on the center of each plate.
This is a fun starter and a great way to cleanse the palate before you start your meal!
If you prefer you can make these ahead of time and freeze them. All you need to do is remove them from the freezer 10 minutes before serving.
These are great as an intermezzo or a light dessert.
This beautiful color palate can be used for an early mothers day brunch or lunch.
Or for a gorgeous evening dinner, the colors will be dramatic day or night!
