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.

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.”

Mother’s Day Table Setting 2016 -part 2- Crafty covers 4 the Chairs

Mother’s Day 2016 !  Create the table setting – part 2 – crafty covers 4 the chairs

How can I change up my boring leather chairs?   In time for Mother’s Day?

Time for a cover up!

Stumbling on a great find in a local fabric shop was this classy beauty.   I only purchased 2 yards of this unique, stretchy, textured fabric.  When I purchased this, I was unsure what to do with it.  I just fell in love with it!

Since  I’m loving the bright pink color, in my mind, I knew this fabric would be perfect for something!.  I often buy random fabric and create a party setting around it.  It is color and texture that grabs me at the fabric store.  Especially a 3 way stretch like this.  It’s a very forgiving fiber.


Creative crafting will make this months table setting stand out!.   April weather gives me time to stay in and sew, preparing a special May Mother’s Day table setting. The final setting will revealed before Mother’s Day,  so check back on this blog for the update.


With quick work I stitched up squares measuring carefully so I would have enough  to cover  6 chairs.  Folding the fabric into thirds,  I then made 3 cuts which cut it into four squares across  the tri-folded fabric.  The cuts left me with 12 squares enough to make six covers.  Then I began to sew the (approximately 18″) squares together on 3 sides.  I decided to leave the fringe that was  on the salvage edge of fabric as the ‘finished’ edge.   Time spent sewing was about a half hour.

The kitchen became the craft room for this project.



The finished project was six inexpensive stretchy slip covers that will make my next table setting spectacular.  Be on the lookout for the part 3 of the April/May Mother’s Day 2016 Table setting.
