Mother’s Day Table

Mother’s Day is a great day to show your mom how much you cherish everything she does for you and how much you love her and appreciate her.  Instead of going out for dinner stay home and cook her a nice Mothers day meal and don’t forget to put some flowers on the table to make her go WOW!!!

We’re not saying spends 100’s of dollars, but you can definitely have a beautiful table on a budget!  How you ask? Well we have come up with a couple easy options for you to try out at home to make this mother’s day extra special!

Potted Flowers and Candles

Who say’s having a potted plant on the table is a no no? Why not get a nice container or even some burlap and cover up a potted tulip or hyacinth for your Mother’s Day table, add a couple candles and voila! Your mom will think you’re the cats meow!  Plus, the bulb plants can be potted in the garden afterwards and used as a gift for mom.

Mix and Match

Whether you go to the dollar store and grab some fun bud vases or mix and match fun cups, mugs and vases from your own cupboard you can’t go wrong putting flowers in them and placing them on the table. Head to your local flower shop and pick up a few bright a colorful seasonal flowers and you’ll have a Mother’s Day table no one will forget and mom will be very impressed.

Balloons and Pom Poms

We love looking on the internet for fun table ideas and someone who always has great ideas is Martha Stewart!  We love the idea of doing balloons or hanging paper pom poms for your Mother’s Day table.  Perfect for a morning brunch.  You can even add some colorful candles to finish off the display!  It is a great way to stay on a budget but add some fun to your breakfast table.


Manson Jars

Last but not least arts and crafts with mason jars!  Make sure to clean them out if you’re using ones from around the house.  Add some ribbon or lace to the jars to make them extra special for your Mother’s Day table.  Stay on budget by sticking to seasonal flowers such as tulips, hyacinth, or even a mixture of bulb plants. Depending on your table size have three different sized jars or add some candles with a couple jars and your done!  So easy but will definitely make your mom feel extra special!

Spring Flower

Tulips Are Springs Most Valuable Flower!

They are here, there and everywhere. Our love for tulips is strong and when they are in season we smile and laugh all day long. YAY!!!

Tulips are a timeless choice to any spring event and we LOVE them. They are in season from February to June in Ontario depending on mother nature and how she is feeling of course!

They are a one of a kind flower that keeps growing in the vase. They bend gracefully, twist and turn going this way or that way and always towards the light. This however can be used to your advantage to create a “casual free style look”.

When working with tulips make sure to clean off all bottom leaves and wash any dirt off the stems. Place them in a vase, set on your dining room table and presto. For the next little while watch them do their dance.

They come in different forms, but our top three are the Double bloom, Fringe and Parrot Tulips!

Double bloom are big and fat and have a peony feel to them. The have dual layers of petals that reveal a big beautiful fat bloom that will melt your heart. We used them for a table display in one of our wedding shows below. Look how easy they make a table stand out with other spring flowers in the mix.  It so simple and the best part, they are budget friendly!

Fringe tulips are long lasting and their edges look like a frayed pieces of satin fabric. They are an elegant and classic tulip that will never let you down.
