A well-cooked meal can go a long way, but a well-set table can go an even longer way. This Mother’s Day, enjoy an exquisite brunch in the comfort of your own home. Here are six ways to set a beautiful table that mother can enjoy.
This table is simple and sophisticated–perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch!
Keep it soft. Color scheme is always important since it sets the tone of your meal. On Mother’s Day, use a soft color scheme to achieve a sophisticated look. Soft pinks and various shades of white will complement the season best, but any muted shades will do.
Stay simple. Don’t fuss over your mantle. On Mother’s Day, you’ll want to keep your decor looking as clean as possible. Ditch the embroidered mantle for a simple white one or a bare wooden table–just make sure that your table is in good shape if you decide to go with the latter.
Use your shiniest silver. Silver trays and utensils will make great accent pieces for your Mother’s Day brunch. Make sure all silver is polished and untarnished.
Bring out the china. Treat your mother like royalty this Mother’s Day and serve your best dishes on your finest china. She’ll love the extra effort you’ve put in to ensure she feels like a queen.
Use fresh bouquets. Fragrance the air with a subtle hint of flowers. Use a vase of colorful flowers as a centerpiece for your table. The flowers will add a pop of color while maintaining classiness and will complement the season. And remember, at the end of the day, your mother will have a beautiful bouquet to walk away with.
Light candles. Even unlit, candles will bring a sophistication to your table. Use candlesticks as an additional centerpiece.
