Susan at Between Naps on the Porch has invited us all over to her place for a fun day of sharing tablescapes. I'm not sure that what I am going to share with you is so much a tablescape as a table that just happened at my house this past weekend! I may have mentioned (LOL) that our daughter is getting married. This past Saturday night a lovely Mexican feast was held in the bride and groom's honor. So, Beloved's entire family descended (ummm, I mean came for a visit)! They all live several hours away as does the groom's family so I hosted a Mother's Day brunch for seventeen!
I decided to serve buffet-style from the dining room table with a mix of pewter, silver, and informal dinnerware. I love these glass plates I purchased several years ago from Old Time Pottery. They cost less than one dollar apiece so I have lots of them! The best thing about them is that they go right into the dishwasher! This picture is from the night before the brunch. I always set the buffet early with sticky notes labeling what is served where. The flowers are sunflowers and pink daisies from Costco and Kroger in three small candle containers from Dollar Tree. The silverware, just my everyday, is in a pewter vase lined with a pink bandana.

This adorable pink dessert stand is my new favorite serving piece!! It is made out of metal flower petals and complete with bugs on top.. It's perfect for spring cookies or cupcakes! I decided to try my hand at butterfly cookies!
These cute little cookies were pink, yellow, and green to match the color scheme of the flowers and napkins!Did I mention the importance of color coordinating your pet's wardrobe to the color scheme of the festivities? No, Jessie was just all dressed up for Mother's Day and wanted to meet you! Hope you all had a Mother's Day filled with the people you love. Thanks for letting me share mine. Now join Susan and LOTS of others at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
