But, first of all, here is the way my table has looked for spring.
Now for the new Mother's Day centerpiece.
I find myself really trying hard to hold off bringing out the shells. But the coastal vintage look is what I am loving. It is so hard not to put the beach in everything!
The gift is two Spode Blue Italian plates with a little cottage style tea set. I wrapped it in an open basket and there is a flour sack towel hanging out of the front of the basket. I wrote about the flour sack towel in a earlier post you can read about that here.
The beach styled candle is easy to do. I have my candle down in a hurricane. I filled the hurricane with a small layer of sand, surrounded the candle with shells, and a white sea star. My Mother was born in Florida and so was my Grandfather. Having been there many times; gave me a love of the beach and coastal style. My Grandfather always said, "If you return home (from Florida) with sand in your shoes you'll be back."
The knobby sea star is one of my favorites.
Hydrangeas in a sea inspired pitcher, turned into a vase, makes the perfect bouquet for our table.
Something special for your Mom is always a treat. Mother's Day is May 9th in the States.
