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.

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!)

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

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!

  5. This is such a beautiful tablescape, Shelley! I would have never thought to put block print and stripes together but I love it. I’m definitely going to be using that idea this summer. It looks so good mixed with the touches of seagrass. Hope your Mother’s Day is a special one. Hugs, CoCo
