This board is all about the huge floral black & white trend. I love this style so much that I bought this dinnerware set called Bandana in April. You can find it at any Stokes retail locations in Canada.
My Bandana dinner set was the starting point for designing this Mother’s Day dinner party. The great thing with black and white is that you can use a few colorful splashes to add sparkles to your look. Pink is my accent color.
I reuse the aqua and brown table linen that I used on my previous board so you can see in action how flexible this floral tablecloth really is. I strongly felt that it was important to put each place set under a solid neutral napkin linen. The idea is to create layers.
I found these eye-catching pink napkins shopping on my lunch break; they are from Ideal Home Range. Then I got the idea of using a purse as a vase. This is a simple DIY project.
Find a glass bowl that nicely fits into the purse. A kitchen bowl can work since the bowl will be hidden. Then, elegantly assemble various shades of pink flowers to make a one-of-a-kind centerpiece. I was too busy this week to create one myself. So I got the pictures from one of my great floral design sources, The Flower Council of Holland.
Frozen Yogurt Dessert
When Bea from La Tartine Gourmande published her grown up yogurt ice pops, I bookmarked her recipe for my upcoming inspiration boards. Her shooter glass pops look sophisticated and whimsical at the same time. Like always, a glimpse at her photo sold you on her recipe.
Gift Idea for the Stylish Mom
Aprons are in demand right now. The man in mom’s life can get the embroidered Yummy Mummy Pink Mocha apron by domistyle as a little present. Finally, I am showing you the letterpress card from papered together that I bought for my mom.
This design symbolizes a girlie mom. I create the Girlie Mother’s Day Dinner Theme board to emphasize both feminine fashion and glamour. This concluded my Mother’s Day inspiration boards. I wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms.
