My Mother’s Day Table

mother\'s day table 2008 :: chirp dinnerware by lenox

I hosted a casual Mother’s Day event this year. My husband and I invited our mothers for an intimate breakfast.

My husband cooked wonderful omelets. I have to say this was his best ever. He prepared a Swiss cheese and mushroom omelet with freshly cut chives from our garden.


We kept the tabletop really simple. The beauty emerged from the charming plates and cups. It was also the first time I ate in my new Chirp dinnerware set by Lenox. This 2007 pattern is so adorable.

I could have placed the plates over my Birds ‘n Trees placemats from Modern-Twist like I shown you here. But a checkered tablecloth caught my eyes that morning. I bought this cotton tablecloth at La Maison Simons last year.

I bought my Vertu flatware by Retroneu at William Ashley in Toronto the year it was launched, i.e., in 1991. I still love it today. This flatware model is discontinued since 2003.
