Do you love a pretty Mother’s Day Table Setting? I know I should have done this sooner, but I’ve been way too busy. Anyway, this tablescape is pretty, and perfect for any Spring event.

Most ladies enjoy a pretty tablescape and Mother’s Day is ALL about pretty things.

I will only talk with all of my kids today, but at the end of the month we will celebrate in person and this is the table setting I plan to use.

It’s a bit of a rustic tablescape and it’s very layered as I think that is so interesting. And I did a cool thing. I took some silk ivy tendrils as well as a lush artificial garland and I made that the beginning of my centerpiece. Read along with me for all the details. Let me know at the end if you like it as much as I do. And let me know if you enjoy making tablescapes for your celebrations too.

How To Make This Mother’s Day Table Setting (Easy Steps)

The first photo shows a nice neutral tan tablecloth which easily covers the dining room table pads and really works as a base for the Mother's Day table setting.

Next, I added these terrific oval rattan placemats

Next, I added these terrific oval rattan placemats. They are present in many of my table settings and are so sturdy. So easy to wipe clean and they are the start of the layering process I love so much.

Next, I added cream ceramic plates, olive cotton napkins, and stainless steel flatware.  Then I added little spring chicken salt and pepper shakers.

Above, I added pink-tinged wine glasses that are old and from Crate and Barrel.  Here are similar ones.  What's cool about the pink color is that the pink is very subtle.  It reflects the candlelight in a neat way.  Then on the clear candlesticks, I added battery-operated pillar candles that truly look real when they're on!  I also added some French ribbon that I had which was pink, green, and yellow.  It pulled together colors on the table.

Above, I started the centerpiece by taking two long artificial eucalyptus garlands and folding them in half.  Then I placed them on the table on either side of a simple grapevine wreath that had fern leaves on it.

Now, above and below is where it gets interesting.  I took little tendrils of silk ivy and wove them around the artificial ivy to make the garland look more real and full.

Above, you can see a few more pieces of silk ivy that I placed along the edge of the wreath.  I also placed an old bunny (similar, here) in the center of the wreath.  This is the center of the centerpiece for the Mother's
 Day Table Setting.

Above, is a close-up of one of the completed place settings after I placed a green lettuce leaf salad plate on top of the cream dinner plate.  That ties together more of the greenery and olive napkins.  Pro-tip: By using the different shades of green in the ivy, the wreath, garlands, napkins, and dessert plates, more depth is created in the Mother's Day tablescape.
