I originally wanted to have it outdoors because my husband is Master of the Grill, but in Michigan in May, you never know what kind of weather you will get! While it was a gorgeous day, it was plain old chilly! So, last minute, I looked at my supplies and came up with a splendid theme to honor our mothers. I chose a black, white, red and pink theme because it was all stuff I had on hand.
Here is a picture of the table all set up, with the exceptions of our plates.
Here are the centerpieces that you might recognize from this party. Don't ya just love it when you can reuse and recycle?
I was also using placemats for each placesetting, but I ran out and needed two more. Not to worry, I quickly made some out of paper for the younger "boys" of the family.
Some fresh flowers for the food table in the pedestal vase...
As little party favors, I made glass markers out of washers. I stamped them with words like "faith," "love," and the names of the mothers' children.
It was a great day, and hopefully the mothers in the family felt relaxed and loved. They also didn't have to do any of the cooking or cleaning up! Have a great day!
