The Guide To Mother's Day

The Guide To Mother's Day

For Your Table 

Mother’s Day is a chance to celebrate some of the most important women in our lives: moms! Whether it’s your own mother or one you’ve found along the way, everyone loves being treated to a beautiful meal, made more special with a classic spring table setting. The soothing blues and greens of our Hydrangea Story bring an air of calm to this day of rest, and this classic flower is available much of the year to add some extra life to your setting.


Items Shown: Blue Lattice Runner, Blooming Hydrangeas Placemat, Die-Cut Hydrangea Placemat, Hydrangea Place Card, Hydrangea Table Accent, Hydrangea Table Card (great for writing a menu for your guests!) 

In the language of flowers, hydrangeas mean gratitude, grace, and beauty, making them the perfect sentiment for a Mother’s Day celebration. They can also represent abundance with their many blooms, adding to the celebratory nature of your setting: sometimes, more is more! We love combining real blooms with their paper counterparts to create a layered setting bursting with beautiful hues.

While the setting shown works on a table, it can easily be adapted for a buffet-style breakfast or even a breakfast in bed! Aligning placemats in a long row along the buffet, with one under each dish, is a great way to make this setting work for a breakfast bar. If you’re limited on space, turn the placemats vertically and fold over your bar’s edge to create more room. If you’re bringing your mom breakfast in bed, cut down a runner to line your tray table, then create your setting on top. Don’t forget a bud vase with a single bloom to complete the look!


For Your Breakfast 

Start your day with a beautiful breakfast! Use our suggested menu below to create a lovely meal.

Cooking for a crowd? Change up your omelet into an elegant soft scramble so you can make multiple servings at once. Use a 3:2 ratio (3 eggs to 2 TB of milk) depending on how many servings you need, then add beaten eggs to a pan with butter and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add cheese, top with chives and serve.


For Your Glass

Cheers to your mom and to you–this cocktail batches beautifully for a crowd! Pre-mix all ingredients if you need to make a large amount, then top each glass with prosecco and sparkling water as you serve.
