A Summer-Scape for Mother’s Day

Hi Friends! Thanks for checking out the blog today.

For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to go with a “Lemon” theme after deciding to make a Lemon Bundt Cake from Joanna Gaines’ new cookbook “Magnolia Table.” (You can read more about that HERE.)

I remembered seeing a really pretty lemon-printed table cloth in Homegoods a few weeks ago, and once I decided to go this route, I was wishing I had picked it up.

I decided to go back to look, and they had this one, which is almost the exact same print!

It wasn’t a round cloth like I needed, but I made it work by placing it on top of a floor length round white cloth, which added another layer to the tablescape.

For each place setting, I used a plain white plate that came from IKEA. I placed a white sackcloth napkin on top, a piece of greenery that came from Kroger’s floral section, a clear plastic dessert plate, and a faux lemon from Hobby Lobby.

I used simple silverware and clear tumblers with a lemon slice on the rim.

I used the cake as the centerpiece with lemon wedges as garnish and more greenery and faux lemons around the base of the Cake Plate (which was also a Homegoods find!)

I also picked up a copy of the latest “Country Home” magazine as a gift for my mom.

The other food item was these cute Pepperidge Farm cookies! I loved the spring prints on each one!

The color yellow is supposed to represent “happiness”, and this tablescape most definitely accomplished that for both me and my mother.

I had so much fun putting it together, and I think the final outcome reflects that joy!
