Happy Mother’s Day! A little Grandmother fun!

Sometimes I surprise Super Boy, my grandson who turns 5 this week, with some little tablescapes at his place at the island in the kitchen

He’s been having a little trouble eating vegetables lately so I thought an inspirational little tablescape might help make it more fun

I borrowed some “props” from around the house, this needlepoint sign usually hangs near the pantry

This ceramic pea pod was made by a friend of mine~it is glued on a black canvas and framed and usually hangs in the dining room

I got out some colorful accessories

and his favorite water bottle and a green spoon…The bite plate represents what we all say, “If you just try ONE BITE…”

there might be some orange jelly beans or Pirate Booty in your future!

{Pirate Booty is basically cheese puffs and it’s pretty good!}

His special “place” is ready for enjoying his veggies!    {The chair needs some touching up I see…this is a busy spot!}

In October I teased him with the biggest cupcake high out of reach

This was what he found on St. Patrick’s Day…a pot of gold and the promise of a treasure hunt later

and the bunny left a messy trail on Easter…and some ”peeps” hatching on a plate

Sometimes he leaves me a little vignette too! “The authorities have surrounded some suspicious contraband on the floor!!”  He is pretty hilarious and…

Yep, I get to give him back!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there, whether your babies are new or old, furry friends or all grown-up,  motherhood is a lifetime job and you are much appreciated!

    Aren’t you the clever one to try and make eating a special treat. I know that challenge, especially when the effort results in the food being thrown on the floor! Happy day to you, Jenna.
