Even if you can’t send her to the spa, you can

Pamper her with a private retreat and a tray with blooms, a light snack and her favorite magazine…

A quick vignette with some favorite books and photos will bring a big smile

AND of course set a special table!

If you have beautiful fresh flowers, it’s easy peasy to set a stunning table

 

 

May Mother's table

 

This table is set with a mix of everyday colored plates and place mats, and things found around the house to match the bright flowers

No matching napkins?

No problem, look in your linen closet… how about colorful wash cloths

The gold dot organza was part of the flower packaging, so I used it too, as part of the centerpiece

It matched the Gold Leaf Glasses

This is one of their luxury bouquets, which came in a sturdy box,  the stems carefully swaddled and the base wrapped in a wet sponge to keep them fresh.  Included with the flowers was a gorgeous glass oval vase, protected in bubble wrap.  The packaging was almost as pretty as the flowers!

All you have to do is put water in the vase, unwrap the flowers, and stick them in!

Tip for making flowers last:  Water is oxygen to flowers, give them fresh water every few days and snip a little off the stems.  You can add a little lemon lime soda to water if you don’t have any flower preservative, flowers love a little sip of soda!

    I love your “wash cloth” napkin blooms with the leaf addition. That’s amazing! I can see that being very useful when placed in the glass wet for peeling and eating shrimp. You are so inspiring! 🙂

    This is so pretty and the view is amazing! Never thought of using washcloths what a great idea. Unlike cloth napkins any stains are much easier to come out. 2 thumbs up on that one!!
