When family and friends come to visit, nothing gives me more satisfaction than serving a yummy meal and setting a pretty table for all to enjoy.
Since mom will be hosting Easter this year(bless her heart), I decided to put the DIY Rope placemats I recently made to good use, and invite mom and a friend over this weekend for Sunday brunch!
I wanted a simple-casual table setting, and I think the lattice trimmed and fluted plates are the perfect match for the rustic placemats. And instead of fancy napkins, I used striped dish cloths that I’d purchased awhile back at Target. (5pk for $3.99)
I know mom will be thrilled when she sees the favors I created using mini terracotta pots and flower and herb seed packets. Zinna’s are her absolute FAVORITE flower!
Speaking of flowers-I recently read that mason jars are OUT this year-and all I could do was chuckle. My turquoise ball jars will never be out, as far as I’m concerned, especially when they are filled with pretty pink tulips!
Reclaimed wood I found at the farm, and pastel eggs (I found in the clearance isle at Target)tucked in moss nests-complete my centerpiece.
Sunday brunch has become a tradition for our family. It’s a time when we all gather around the table-eat, laugh, and give thanks for all the wonderful blessings are Good Lord provides each day.
The great thing is, setting a pretty table for those I love, doesn’t have to take a lot of time, or cost big $$$ to do! My rustic spring tablescape took 15 minutes from start to finish, and the total cost was under $10! (For favors)
Now that the table is set-and I’ve made a batch of my scrumptious Blueberry-Lemon Streusel Muffins, all I have left to do is prepare my egg bake Saturday night, and Sunday will be all about sharing time with family and friends.
Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? I sure do.
Have a FABULOUS Friday!
Blessings and hugs,
I’ll be linking up to these fun parties-so stop on over and be inspired!
