Quick and easy, this centerpiece was created by pouring sand into a short glass-cylinder vase that was embellished with ribbon and topped with an oversize bloom. Make sure to pull off the stem of the bloom before resting it on top of the cylinder.
Place an orange, white, and brown table runner on top of a white tablecloth. Then set small white votive candles in between each centerpiece to create an elegant mood for a Mother's Day dinner.
For a quick, inexpensive place mat, place a 12-x-12-inch piece of scrapbook paper under a white plate. Fill tent card holders, glass votive holders, or short bud vases with single stems of fresh flowers that coordinate with the bloom in your centerpiece.
This pretty table tent card holds a small vase and acts as a place card for guests. The double-sided paper allows you to vary the way you present the place cards on the table setting.
Tie a color-coordinated ribbon around each glass to help pull together the orange and brown theme.
