Mother’s Day is to tomorrow. I’m sharing an easy, inexpensive and pretty table setting that dad and the kids can put together in a jiffy. Plus, mom doesn’t have to worry about her favorite collectibles chipping :)).
My grandmother, mother and all my aunts are in town this weekend and my husband and kids have invited everyone to an informal backyard barbecue to celebrate Mother’s Day. I am looking forward to spending the day with 5 generations and hope to get some good photos as I won’t be in charge of cooking.
(Please ignore the fact that I forgot to place a napkin on the right side place setting :-0)
Now for setting the table:
STEP 1: Buy or pick flowers and set aside.
STEP 2: Spread a tablecloth or table runner (use a dupatta or scarf or even a folded bed sheet) on the dining table.
STEP 3: Set the plates, cups, napkins and flatware as needed.
STEP 4: Fill empty bottles from around the house with water- different heights and sizes add interest to the table – and place cut flowers in them (I have used empty single-serve wine and soda bottles). You can use jam bottles, water bottles, or even water glasses.
STEP 5: Place a few candle holders in between and use tea lights, pillar candles, or a combination of both.
STEP 6: Watch mom’s face light up at the sight of the pretty presentation.
STEP 7: Watch dad’s face light up because he scored major brownie points :))
