Welcome to my Mother's Day 2012 tablescape. This one got here before I really had a chance to be ready. My daughter is better now after her surgery so then my husband and I went to Illinois to visit my 90 year old Dad, who is doing great. We are back and needed to get something ready quick. So take a look:
The flowers were a surprise from my husband who had been in the country and came home with these lovely Wild Phlox. I hadn't planned to use purple flowers in my centerpiece but what can you say to a sweet man who brings you flowers? There are a couple of tiny purple flowers on the vase so it's perfect.
Both of our Mothers have passed away so the vase in the corner with white flowers is to honor them.
The silver plate flatware I am using belonged to my Mother and is 1847 Rogers. It is very special to me so I love sharing it with you.
Look closely and you can see the daffodil on the end of each piece.
I'm sharing a picture of my Mom when she was about 18 years old. I love this picture of her, she had dark brown hair and big beautiful brown eyes. You can see that I don't really look like her, although my sister does. I look more like my Dad with my light hair and eyes. Mom was a very hard-working yet such a loving Mother. She met my Dad shortly after he returned home from WWII. She spent many years of her life working side-by-side with my Dad in their dry cleaning and coin laundry business that they started together.
I have a dessert center set with dessert plates and forks. The platter, cream and sugar, and canape plate are Fitz and Floyd Woodland Spring pattern.
On the dessert menu, we are having:
Red Velvet Cake
It is my husbands very favorite dessert, so since it is also close to his birthday, I like to treat him with his favorite cake.
Thanks for stopping by to see my Mother's Day 2012 tablescape- Judy.
