Mother’s Day Table Setting in the Dining Room

Welcome friends!  Can you believe it’s almost Mother’s Day?  Hopefully, you have plans to spend the day with loved ones!

If you need ideas for a Mother’s Day table setting, take a look at how I decorated my dining room table…

Daisies and ideas for a simple Mother's Day Table

Mother’s Day Table Setting in the Dining Room:

In the past, we have hosted our Mother’s Day lunch in the kitchen. This year, I thought it would be nice to eat in the dining room instead.  Ever since we painted the dining room navy, I have been looking for excuses to entertain in there!

Casual Table Setting:

Even though we will be eating in the dining room, I didn’t want an overly fussy table.  Instead, I kept our Mother’s Day table setting very casual.  Using the blue and white block print tablecloth as inspiration, I then added accessories to keep a simple look.  Between the textured seagrass place mats and the blue and white striped napkins, I hopefully achieved a relaxed vibe.

Since daisies are a non-fussy and casual flower, I added a couple vases filled with them.

As always, my white plates made an appearance.  No need for the more formal china on this casual table.

Navy Dining Room

Since the furniture is a little more formal, the casual table setting provides a nice balance.

I think Rosie approves.  (She always likes to be around when I am decorating!)

Bar Cart Styling:

On my corner bar cart, I continued the soft colors and casual feel.

And added some more daisies to a simple white pitcher.

Once again, Rosie is trying to grab all the attention!  Maybe she just wants to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day!

Hopefully, my simple Mother’s Day table setting gave you some ideas to decorate your table! 

Cheers to all the wonderful moms!

      Thanks, Paula! The walls were red for about 13 or 14 years but I got tired of that look. Now I am loving the navy and the way it goes with all my accessories. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Shelley!
    This is such a pretty table setting. I love the simplistic approach you took. I like the blue stripes with the floral print in the tablecloth. Thanks for sharing at Homestyle Gathering!
