TABLESCAPE TUESDAY - Mother's Day May Tablescape!

Good Morning!

I hope all you mothers out there had a great Mother's Day.   We had my parents in law in town for the weekend and it was a nice day.  We decided to skip the crowded restaurants and have a nice Sunday Family Dinner at home!

For this, I decided to go ahead and put my May Tablescape together!  I wanted to have something cheerful and flowers for the month of May, and one of my favorite color combos quickly came to mind! 
 I love blue and white with yellow....it just seemed like a very cheerful option for this table!

I put my April Cornell Table runner that I got last year from HomeGoods on an ivory tablecloth that I've had forever.   That kind of set the tone. 

Since I only had 4 blue and white toile dishes, I decided to do some eclectic matching with my settings. 

The first setting was my white Dollar Tree plate, my blue and white toile salad plate that I found at Marshalls last year, I believe, and a Dollar Tree yellow bowl. 

The alternating setting was my white Dollar Tree plate, a yellow salad plate and my blue toile bowl from Ross last year.   It worked ok for this setting, although I do wish I could have had everything matching! 

The Blue napkins were from Joann's fabrics on super sale around Christmas time (I believe they were from Hannukah....it is such a rich, beautiful blue, I couldn't resist!  =) )

For my centerpiece, I wanted it low so we could all see across the table.   I ended up getting out my large blue and white toile bowl and filled it with blue and yellow flowers.

On each side of that were two raised jar candles with these cute little mosaic lampshades I found at Goodwill last month.   I placed them on two low pillar candle holders from Ikea for a little height.

Our family seemed to enjoy this dinner a lot.  We had a family favorite which we introduced to my in-laws and they loved.  Angel Chicken!  Always a hit.  Here is a link to that recipe.

Thanks again for joining me for another Tablescape Tuesday!  I hope you have a great week!  =)

    1. Thanks Alycia!!! Yes, if you haven't tried that Angel Chicken yet, it is SOOO good! Everyone I've ever made it for has loved it! It's definitely a go-to meal when we have company or a special event, or even if I want something that I know the whole family will like!
