If your Mom isn’t the breakfast-in-bed type, treat her to a family dinner complete with a lovely table setting.
I like the contrast of new black chargers with the vintage pink dinner plates.
These Blue Ridge dishes from the 1960s, have a black crackle paint finish and were a bargain at only 99¢ each.
The most successful table settings have an element of the unexpected. The black iron trivets don’t really serve any particular purpose when placed on the plate; they’re just for fun. They become little gifts or party favors for your guests.
I love these feminine hand painted wine glasses.
For a casual, floppy look tuck the napkin in the glass.
Or pleat them like a fan and use the trivet to anchor them across the plate.
Make your own confetti with dominoes! Use them as place cards. Give each guest a tile and let them find the mate at the table. They can play a fast game while waiting for dinner.
Treat Mom to a relaxing dinner. Taking the time to set a fabulous table is half the gift!
