Happy Tabletop Tuesday! One of my favorite things to do is probably style a table. I love it so much and I really love shopping for tablescapes. I have a huge collection of table cloths, runners, dishes, vases, chargers, etc. If this is something you enjoy too, I want to encourage you to do 2 things.
The first thing is ask your mom or grandmother for things maybe that they just don’t use anymore. My mom used to do a ton of entertaining. I remember people in and out of our home on a regular basis growing up. I think this is probably where my love for it all grew. I definitely get it from my momma! So as you can imagine, her collection has grown a bit over the years and there were things she just didn’t use or need anymore and gave to me. I love hand-me-downs! I’ll take them all day! She has even given me things of my grandmothers, such as this tablecloth and silverware. I cherish these!!!
Another thing I would encourage you to do is shop antique malls or flea markets. The floral dinner plate, tulip candle holders and tea cup/saucer you see are antique store finds. Some antique and flea markets can be very expensive, but sometimes you will find them to be very reasonable as well. I love shopping these because you can often find some of the most unique pieces here.
Another idea I had for your Mother’s Day table is adding little pictures of your mother, grandmother, great grandmothers down the center or even small ones at place settings. Wouldn’t that be such a sweet reminder of how blessed we are to have or have had them in our lives!?
Have a wonderful Tuesday, friends! I want to encourage you to follow me on Instagram if you don’t already.
