It’s here!…Mother’s Day 2016 Inspired Design table!
This special table setting is a nod to Kate Spade, in case you had not already guessed by the earlier posts, Creatively made, using a bit of sewing, painting and style. Bright Pink color with black and white stripes and of course Kate’s signature bow. Remember the handmade gold dotted plates? Here they sit in the middle of a basic white corelle plate, encircled by additional elements to set the designer mood.
The signature pink bow was made with a bright pink napkin pinched by a gold band ring. If you remember the table runners made with a black and white striped fabric were sewed on the last post. Here these runners are across the table instead of set down the center. The quick made chair covers on the six chairs bring the table alive with color. Set with some wine glasses for style and designed all for MOM.
It’s the one time a year we honor our Mother’s with a special Day.
Alternating the elements for this style was easy. This time I changed the plates and added a coffee cup all atop a fresh white placemat.
If you just wanted to serve Mom special desserts. You can start with the simple plate and change the napkin ring to a flower. Simplify the style and place the spoon at the head of the head of the plate which is the placement for dessert spoons. I added a tall polka dot drinking glass to keep with the Kate Spade designer theme.
Try your hand a shaping a table setting to capture the look and feel of a designer. Just a few quick changes and you could change the whole atmosphere for a special day. Lunch, brunch or dinner! Make your guests feel special by stepping up your game at the table!
This one song reminds me of being a Mom and having a Mom, sung by the late Whitney Houston “I will always Love You“.
Happy Mother’s Day !!!
Ephesians 6:1-3“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Having Mom over for dinner or lunch ? Try creating a distinct table setting for her that will make her feel special!. This month I have been working towards that end. Just a bit more sewing in preparation for this LUX designer table setting. I chose a black and white striped decorator fabric, Decorative Fabrics Direct was a good find, they carry a wide variety of fabric you may want online here . A few quick stitches on a machine and you too, can create a table runner.
In early May I will share the final project and give you some tips on how to create you own unique table setting. Create this upscale look with a few simple elements you might have around your house. Then you too can make Mom feel special!

I know I’m not Irish ancestry… but isn’t everyone Irish on St. Patty’s Day?
What’s more refreshing than a bright green color after a long dark winter. Green predominately reminds us of Spring. Grass begins to turn green and crocuses spring up with green leaves a sure sign of spring. I think setting my March table with an eye for green anything, gives a nod to the Irish Day.
So fill up your pot with the corn beef and cabbage and set your table for “Luck O’ the Irish” dinner. This month my bright green placemats start the setting, topped with a wood look square charger. I used a very simple square inexpensive corelle plate for squared symmetry. I scored the napkins a few years back at CB2. Purchased as 4 napkins in various black and white patterns.
The best part of the table is the centerpiece the Leprechaun is hiding the wine bottle beneath his clever orange beard I believe he is smiling. After photographing I decided the table needed a bit more glint so I changed the flatware to gold and added some gold coins for Luck!
Set your lucky table and see if your Irish eyes are smiling!
Go then, eat your bread in happiness and drink your wine with a cheerful heart; for God has already approved your works.Ecclesiastes 9:7
