Mother’s Day Lunch


Hello all! I hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day!  We had both our mothers over for a nice simple lunch.


I found the pink gingham in my fabric stash and used our new green placemats.  I need to get some other colored linens, but I have plenty of green!

I used some candle holders full of branches from the backyard for a low and simple centerpiece. 


Our pretty new glasses look fantastic with a strawberry and some lemonade.


My mother in law bought these chargers for her daughter’s birthday and stopped on the way over to get a few more.  I LOVE them!!  They add that perfect touch to the table!  As I was getting some last minute groceries I spotted the Ghirardelli Raspberry Squares and I think they add a perfect little touch to the place setting. 


On to the food – I love to eat.  Pretty much my favorite thing to do.  I thought a while about what to serve, Mother’s Day always seems to go with brunch but brunch can be so heavy and it has been hot lately, so I wanted something light.  I finally decided on a salad bar.  Think this might be a new Mother’s Day traditional because I loved it (and I think my ma and MIL did too)!


Red leaf lettuce, tomatoes, egg, cheese, avocado, snap peas, carrots, cucumbers, mushrooms …


kidney beans, bacon, sunflower seeds, raisins (in the back), chicken, croutons, and croissants

It was a great lunch and nice to spend some quality time with our moms!

They are amazing and I am thankful to have them both around. 

What did you do for Mother’s Day?
