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)
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.
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 candle holders (similar, here), I added battery-operated pillar candles that really look real when on! I also added some French ribbon (similar, here) that I had which was pink, green, and yellow. It pulled together the colors on the table.
Now, above and below is where it gets interesting. I took little tendrils of silk ivy and wove them around the artificial garland to make the garland look more real and full.

Above, is a close-up of one of the completed place settings after I placed a green lettuce leaf salad plate (similar, here) 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 tablescape.
Above, is the finished product! Doesn’t it look so beautiful? I love this Mother’s Day table setting! (Of course, you could easily use this for ANY spring event!
