Columbia’s spring is short, but when the flowers are in full bloom, it’s stunning. Absolutely stunning. One of our favorite local trees are called Eastern redbuds, and they have the most gorgeous, clustered rose-purple blooms. There’s actually a redbud blooming in our front yard right now, which inspired me to create a lavender Mother’s Day tablescape this year. I pulled in some light green and yellow to compliment the purple, too, and really love the way this one turned out. Keep reading for a handful of Mother’s Day brunch table setting ideas!

Mother’s Day Tablescape
Here’s everything I used to style this Mother’s Day tablescape–
- Lavender check table runner– I looked everywhere for a non-plastic lavender check tablecloth and couldn’t find one. I did, however, manage to find this lavender check table runner, which ended up working out perfectly!
- Lavender napkins– These lavender napkins are gorgeous and have the sweetest hemstitch detailing. They come packaged in a really nice box, too, so they’d make great gifts!
- Green striped seersucker napkins– I wanted to add some extra color to the table, so I used some green seersucker napkins to create a “bouquet” napkin setting. I learned how to do it from a book my stepmom got me called The Simple Art of Napkin Folding!
- Woven wicker chargers– As much as I love these rattan chargers (and I do!), they’re pretty small diameter-wise. So, I moved the plates down a bit to show off the tops better.
- Rattan lemon napkin holders– These lemon napkin holders were a wedding gift from Anthropologie, and I’ve waited SO long to finally use them. Not only are they adorable, but they’re also huge, too, which works perfectly for double napkin folds. They’re no longer available in all lemons unfortunately, though, so I’m linking a mixed set!
- White scalloped dinner plates– These scalloped plates were another wedding gift, and they’re the best dinner plates. The petal design shape is pretty and delicate, and the porcelain has an anti-scratch finish. Highly recommend!
- White salad plates– To give the Mother’s Day table settings a little more depth, I layered plain white salad plates on top of our dinner plates. They’re also handy for keeping bread and fruit separate from the rest of your brunch.
- Short romantic water glasses– I absolutely love these gorgeous little water glasses. Seriously, nobody does romantic glassware quite like Bormioli Rocco.
- Tall etched crystal glasses– These exact goblets are antiques, but I found a similar style goblet on Amazon. They’re perfect for sangria and cold sparkling cocktails!
- Silverware– I like to think of myself as a practical hostess, so I never get too fancy with silverware. A knife, fork, and spoon get the job done just fine!
- White spill-proof tablecloth– This white tablecloth’s nothing special, but it is stain resistant. It’s also easy to iron and washes well!
- Rustic lavender centerpiece– I originally ordered purple sweet peas for this lavender centerpiece from Blooms by the Box, but they didn’t end up having any in stock. One of their recommended substitutions was this lavender stock, and it ended up looking so gorgeous. To create the lavender centerpiece itself, I arranged 40 stems of lavender stock in six different mason jars and then nested them inside a small white wooden crate. Super easy!
I like to make sure colors are somewhat coordinated, so to add a little bit more yellow, I put lemon slices on each water glass. It was a tiny little adjustment that made a big impact color-wise!
Another great idea is to create a colorful cocktail to help brighten up the table. Stay tuned for a lavender cocktail recipe coming later in the week!
I mentioned this above, but I was seriously so bummed when I found out Blooms by the Box was out of lavender sweet pea. Literally heartbroken (first world problems, I know). I begrudgingly took lavender stock as a replacement, and I’m so glad I did. These worked better than I ever could’ve hoped!
To create this lavender centerpiece, I arranged 40 stems of lavender stock in six different mason jars and then nested them inside a small white wooden crate. Stock stems have a beautiful natural arc, so to create volume, I turned a few so that they bent inward. I also cut them all at varying heights, but I left some stems particularly long to give the sides more dimension and create a wider overall composition.
